Brocade faux leather dress – Under Skies via Shopruche  //  Shoes – Clarks  //  Tights – unknown  //  Bracelets – F21 and one was a gift from my Babcia  

Last night, I got to dress up a little and head out to the Tristan fragrance launch.  I thought this cute brocade dress with leather trim on the shoulders was the perfect number to throw on.  Vintage-esque with a hint of edge, and the cut out detail is just perfect.

My hot ‘date’ for the night was a good friend of mine, Monica, and we shopped, browsed and basically just had a blast thanks to our lovely hosts and their delicious cupcakes.  Personally, having been home most of the day struggling between finding time to edit photos on my computer and wrangling a toddler in the midst of a temper tantrum, I more than relished the chance to get out and not have to put a human being into a corner for time out….again.

Needless to say it was a welcome diversion, and the scent is lovely; light, crisp, and fresh.  It’s a scent that makes me think of Spring.  Which is rather bittersweet considering how far, far, away we are from Spring.  Ugh, such a freakin’ tease.
