Santa Fe Wine Classic 2017

As always, Gerry and her Committee outdid themselves!

This year, the Wine Classic was “Old Hollywood” themed, and as always, I was a nervous wreck about my outfit. I searched two different Goodwills hoping I’d find a good dress to fix up like I did last year, but no luck (instead I found a ton of amazing vinyls!). Jorge took action, measured me, and had Dinah order a dress for me on her Amazon Prime account–which he would reimburse her for. She ended up getting it for me herself, plus a petticoat! It was perfect, and very Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which I was going for. It was modern enough that–in case I ended up being the only one to dress up–it wouldn’t be too alarming 😆 !

I did some shopping for work on Thursday morning, and ended up finding the perfect earrings, necklace and tiara. I had some shoes to go with it, but they killed my feet immediately, so I ended up wearing my good old speckled wedges, which Gerry said would complement the dress.

I was posted in the Auction Room, and although I didn’t get much time to get out and wander, I got a few photos:

It looked so much prettier at night!
Look at this beautiful photo by my friend Gabriel!!

The cheese spread!
The meats!
The desserts!

I have to admit: I had a tiny brownie, a tiny cheesecake and a chocolate-covered strawberry. And I have no regrets!

My plate from Santa Fe Steakhouse! Tried keeping it Keto but that corn was amazing!
The only thing I got to try from SALT :(. But it was delicious!! A port wine lollipop!
The 3 Audrey’s!

Of course I’d look shiny AF the second I step out into the night’s humidity -_-. And although my feet ached, I had a fabulous time!
