outfit of the day(bird): class reunion









dress ~ H&M
belt ~ vintage, thrifted
shoes ~ Go Jane
earrings ~ F21
bracelets ~ assorted, vintage, thrifted, Tiffany, two birds
clutch ~ vintage, thrifted

remember this post? the one where you all helped me dress for my class reunion? well here i am...and here's what i chose. i wanted shiny and sparkly, but more importantly, i wanted shoes with a thick enough heel so i wouldn't trip down the stairs at my reunion. no one wants to make that kind of impression.

instead, i made another kind. (more on that later.)

i ended up having a really great time at the reunion. as it turns out, the (holy?) water they serve in catholic school must be something special because every single person looked so great. i knew who everyone was just by looking at faces and not name tags...and some people looked even better than they did 20 years ago! it was pretty amazing.

i got to catch up with old friends, laugh with my girls whom i have known for 30+ years, and make fun of my ex – the first person to officially break my heart. and by make fun of, i mean publicly chastise him in front of a table full of people, including his wife. i honestly don't harbor any bad feeling towards him – after all, it's been 20 years and we are both wildly happy with other people. but it was still fun to make fun of him and to tell him what a jerk he used to be. and to his credit, he agreed.

the horribly embarrassing point of the night was when i decided to get sick. ok, i didn't decide, it just happened. i started to feel a bit dizzy and nauseous and ended up running to the bathroom and throwing up about five times. awesome, right? i'm sure people assumed it was from the alcohol, but i can assure you, it wasn't. unless alcohol can affect you for six days...because i still feel sick! but of course, no one knew that...because like the trooper that i am, i stayed at the party until 2am, and even nursed another few beers...and maybe even hijacked my friend's camera and took naughty pictures with it. oops. i guess when you hang out with your friends from 20 years ago, it's ok to act like you are 18 again!

so thanks for helping me pick my outfit. i felt pretty great in it, and for the record, i didn't fall down once!

happy friday!

  6. Great choice on the outfit! I just missed my 15-year reunion last year, and now you've made me excited to think about my 20th. Even if it means I'll be another four years older... *gulp* Okay, not in a hurry.

  8. you look HOT! That dress is smoking on you sister. Really weird you threw up like that? And that you still don't feel well. I have my husbands high school reunion this year. I am not sure if I am excited about it or dreading it. Haha.

  9. Ow ow, you look fantastic!! Super hot! And it totally sucks that you got sick and are still not feeling great, but I applaud you for sticking it out until 2 am and even drinking beer, I don't know that I could handle that after throwing up, I usually totally break down when that happens! I hope you start feeling better! Other than getting sick it sounds like your reunion was awesome, my 10 year was a couple of years back and it was way super awkward!

  11. Wow, what a fabulous outfit. Classy and elegant, with a hint of edge. The jewelry is attractive and the shoes are to die for.

    Glad you had a good experience. Reunions can be treacherous to our emotional health, so I'm glad you survived yours and even prospered at it. The episode with your ex- is something they put in a movie for catharsis.

  15. You are definitely a trooper, good job! I think I would have immediately gone home. I love all of the gold accents, your outfit is awesome!

  16. Megan, you may have had food poinsoning. There are two kinds, one that happens immediately and one that takes a bit to happen. You poor thing. You are a trooper though, and you look like a sexy beauty. Legs are amazing in those shoes and the length of the dress is perfect, love the side pose. Makeup looks perfect in the close up. Hope you are ok now. Loving my credenza and maps, girl. See how you and Nora influence other bloggers like myself. Have a great weekend. dawn suitcase vignettes xo
