Live it up and love it up, amigo!

Yesterday, Mum and I decided we were bored of staying home every night so we booked a table for two at Montezuma's for dinner tonight. I haven't been there since I was a little girl - it was very lovely. The decor is very festive and the food was incredibly yummy! I had vegetarian enchiladas and, for dessert, 'platano de pina' (I think that's what they called it) which involved a banana, pineapple, ice-cream and a cinnamon tortilla. I was going to order a (virgin) Pina Colada until I saw the dessert list and decided I'd rather have that. It was nice to be able to indulge in my favourite sin - gluttony! I was so full afterwards I felt about ready for a siesta.

Also, Mum and I had been listening to the soundtrack for Fun in Acapulco today so I had this song stuck in my head the entire time we were at the restaurant:



It would have been okay, but I could only remember one line! Oh my. At least it suited the restaurant.

I took advantage of the occasion to wear one of the new dresses I bought the other day.

Faux pearls: Hero Vintage
Cat Brooch: I bought this at a sale some of the acting students were having at my TAFE
Dress: Gymnasium closing down sale
Stockings: stockingshq.com
Shoes: K-Mart

Unfortunately, I didn't realise the back of my hair was still damp when I brushed it out so the curls disappeared immediately. I set about attacking it with my curling iron and fixed it a little but I wasn't too fussed - I don't usually worry if the back of my hair is less than perfect because, well, I can't see it!

Before we went to the restaurant, we swung by JB Hi-Fi so I could pick up a copy of Paper Dolls: Australian Pin Up Girls of WWII. I'm so excited to watch this as I missed it when it was on tele. I've heard nothing but good things about it, too!

Once again, thanks to all who have supported me and left lovely comments thus far! It's very encouraging.

Love,

  3. You look so wildly sophisticated, reminiscent in a way of a very early Jackie O, but so, so much lovelier.

    (That show sounds fantastic, I wish one of the US or Canadian channels up here would broadcast it.)


    Wishing you a wonderful, relaxing evening!

  4. i've never seen any of elvis' movies and this makes me want to do so.

    also i love how much you've changed over the years and the way you do look like you've walked out of a painting.
