I love California and I love the Bay Area, but people are so casual here. And I am not talking about during the day. That's fine (although there is nothing wrong with getting cute for brunch). I'm mostly talking about nightlife. Back when I was living in Atlanta, I could have worn this dress on any given Friday  or Saturday night, but not here. This dress sat in my closet for months before FINALLY an event came my way where I felt like I could wear it and not be overdressed. Perhaps it's just the places that I'm going because after all I'm a good bit older than I was  when I was in Atlanta, and I tend more towards nice dinners, drinks and lounges than I do clubs and big parties these days. But whatever the reason, I miss not needing a special occasion to get dolled up :-/

 In 2014, maybe I should wear what I want when I want and when people look at me like who does she think she is, I'll say Simply Chic. BAM! Cheers to a prosperous week ahead.

ETA: Read what author Danielle Steel has to say about San Francisco style HERE. It’s not very pleasant :-/

WEARING: c. luce dress (similar HERE,HERE,HERE), nordstrom necklace, JEAN MICHEL CAZABAT EMMA PUMPS

  2. Colorado is the same way. If you wear a dress at all people ask what you're so dressed up for. Regardless, this dress is SO pretty! I love the cut of the skirt part!

  4. You look gorgeous, love the skirt's cut. Lol and my mama always said there's no such thing as over dressed!
