Dusty Rose Trench

Hi Lovelies!!!  Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!  I was traveling/working in Louisville, KY all last week so while I would've rather celebrated at home in Nashville, we did go to our favorite restaurant in Louisville four days in a row.  The food there is so good, and so is the service.  It's a place called Ramsi's CafĂ© on the World.  By day two we were friends with all the staff and our favorite waiter, Jason.  "Sometimes you wanna go, where everybody knows your naaaame", Cheers reference.  Anyone?  Anyway, if you are ever in the area, I highly recommend it!  

One thing I have been craving lately, (besides Ramsi's) is pastels.  There is a baby blue trench that I have added and deleted from my Forever 21 basket several times.  Finally I manned up, and just  went to the store to try it on, or see if I could find it.  The blue one wasn't there, however I found this dusty rose number and as soon as I tried it on, I knew it would be mine.  This has pacified me... for now.  ;)

 One of my favorite Nail Polishes, Deborah Lippmann: Blue Orchid 

It is a vegan formula.  Pictured above is one coat of polish so there is good color payoff.  It is a bit on the expensive side $18.00, but for me this is the perfect color of pale blue.

Think Pink!

I'm getting into the spirit of Valentine's Day a little early over here at Patti Cake.  You don't have to drape yourself in hearts and glitter to get festive with it (unless that's what you're into),  but otherwise just a little pop of a bright color will do.  In this case, I chose pink.  It always makes me feel flirty and fun.  Plus the color compliments so many skin tones, I never saw pink on someone that I didn't like.
