Fru-Fru Dinner Outfit

Tonight I went to my girlfriends' monthly Fru-Fru Dinner. The group has many get togethers, but Fru-Fru night is when we get to dress up a bit (b/c every girl needs an excuse to dress up once in awhile) and go to a nice restaurant and treat ourselves a bit. Tonight I had prime rib with au jus, garlic mashed potatoes, and a glass of zinfandel. The only thing that could have topped everything off was a big ole' piece of chocolate cake...but no one else wanted dessert, so I didn't want to hold the group up. That, and I've been eating yellow cake with chocolate icing (my self-baked b-day cake) for the last couple days, so I didn't really need it. Anywho, I wore a dress I bought just a couple weeks ago from Belk's. I love it - it's so comfy and the lines are so fresh. The dress has these really cool oversized pockets in the front that kind of blend in with the draping fabric - I'm not sure why, but I think they're fun. Here's what I wore:

Dress: To the Max
Shoes: Kenneth Cole
Necklace: D Celestine Limited

Btw, if you don't currently do a Fru-Fru dinner, I highly recommend it. Everyone deserves a treat now and again, as well as some quality time with good girlfriends.

I like the idea of a fru-fru night for girls. My friends & I are always wanting to dress up but there's never any reason to so I might steal that from you!
Very cute dress! Where can you buy To The Max?

Shopaholic D said...

Please, ladies, steal away! You guys deserve a Fru-Fru dinner, too!

Teresa, I got mine from Belks, but you can also buy To The Max online at places like Nordstrom (click here)

i was thinking about getting that dress for a while and it looked so good on you i totally just ordered it! For those interested you can buy it online at they have a to the max section there. I had no idea that To the Max was by Max Azria who does BCBG.

Can you believe I almost returned this dress, fashionfoodculture-life? Yes, I tried to talk myself into returning it, but couldn't bear to part with it. Silly, I know, but I literally couldn't force myself to take it I guess that's true shopaholic for you. Anywho, thanks so much for posting the link. I hope you like your dress as much as I like mine!
