Two Chefs and a table for 8

Yesterday I got called into work and I knew right away that the second I was finished it was off to the beach. I brought all my beach gear with me to work, hopped on my bike and whipped over to English Bay the minute I was done. See I had fancy dinner to attend at 8 and wanted to fit in bit of beach time before. In Vancouver the second there is enough heat the beaches are packed. We never know how long the hot weather will last and try to make the most of every minute of it. I'll be back there after work today too. Here is what I wore to ride to the beach.

Romper: Urban Outfitters $19 on the sale rack
Sandals: Old Navy outlet $5
Earrings: Hong Kong Street Market $2 
Cuff: Value Village $2

After the beach I raced home to shower and get ready for the World Cup inspired dinner I was going to at Two Chefs and a Table. If you have not heard of this place or been there you have to look them up. The food is fantastic and the people are great. I hear they do an amazing brunch too, but I haven't tried it myself yet. So 8 of us went last night and decided a little dressing up was in order. Correction, I decided I wanted to dress over the top, so I could wear on of my wicked dresses, and Ali was super excited to join. So we decided a little "over the top" was in order. 

Here is my over the top dress.

I really like to give my dresses names so I can keep track. This is the Ladybug dress. I love it! The over the topness of it only makes it so much better! I got it at a great vintage shop on main st at last summer's Car Free Day. Need to go there again soon. I always find something I love in there.

Dress: Vintage at Bohemia Gallery on Main $30
Shoes: Aldo $60
Belt: H&M $16
Purse: Birthday gift from my Ali, also from Bohemia Gallery
Cuff: Value Village $2
Fake Ray Bans: Urban Planet, Two for $5

Hope the summer heat is treating you well,

Hi Girl!
I've been reading this blog for a while but haven't commented before. Now that it's summer I have more time to comment, so I just wanted to say that I love your blog! I really love your fashion (and the prices that go with it!), you always look so put-together. Fashionable, but never like you're trying too hard. Plus you are gorgeous!
I'll stop now since I sound slightly creepy fawning so much, but since no one else has commented lately I just thought you should know :)

Also, if you could, do you think you could do a post about tips for petite girls? If you can't that's okay (since I know that's not the usual format of your posts). Thanks!
