What I Wore …To A Most Magical Party

My new vintage kimono made it out again this weekend ...

I finally got to wear it styled for the party it was purchased for!

My kimono's first outing was here
where I styled it for a more casual night out.

But this time out 
I pulled out all of my style stops
I was lucky enough to be invited at another of the 
legendary parties
at her Laguna Beach home.

It was an evening 
I have been waiting for with great anticipation!

My Trina Turk
Palm Springs sandals
paired perfectly with the kimono.

I finished the look off with a turban and  shell earrings I designed.

Underneath I wore my silk paired skirts
with a my vintage YSL lace blouse.
My corded belt kept the kimono wrapped in place.

And then  it was off to the beautiful Laguna Beach
 the stunning historical residence of the 
whose parties are legendary
 not only for  her 
artistic and sumptuous entertaining skills
but even more so 
for her masterful  gathering of fascinating guests  for her parties!

Magic is always in the air at Andrea's parties …
You can feel it wafting through
the truly romantic space.
It is what party dreams are made of!

Sitting down to a lavishly set table on the veranda 
with the most marvelous food being passed
while getting lost in fascinating conversations
with her  most marvelous guests
is a true gift to my soul.

Andrea's attention to detail
sublime entertaining artistry
makes attending her parties 
an honor
 an always magical memory.

Thank you Jennifer
for this picture!
My handsome husband/photographer
doesn't make it in front of the camera often enough :))

The evening was also had  a fabulous gathering of wonderful bloggers as well.

Some now dear blogging  friends I had already met like
the always glamorous Contessa of
 The Vintage Henhouse
the ever stylish Jennifer of
A Well Styled Life.

Cristina of
Griege Design
 was also attending.
Her interiors are always a favorite of mine.
Especially what she accomplished in her amazing  Southern California  backyard!

Therese of
La Lofina Lifestyle
was also there
 I was only sorry I didn't get to spend more time with her
as she is ever so warm and engaging!
I just know our paths will soon cross again!

Kathy of
had stories about collecting in Paris
for her A list clients
I could have listened to all night!

Oh it was such a wonderful night …
with everyone attending
blogger or not
such a joy to spend time with!

thank you once again for such a magical evening!
Your generosity knows no bounds
my forever  inspiring friend!

PS … Now I can't wait for spring :))

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
