Sometimes, by having such a tight schedule it takes weeks or even several months for me to get around to opening or using new home items or gifts. This is not always the case, but it does happen often when I may want an item fully appreciated by having friends over, i.e., cookware or using a new themed stemware set. However, when it comes to coasters, these are fully used by everyone in our place, not just by guests.
Shortly after Christmas, I received these marvellous custom made coasters from a family friend—I am quite a tea drinker and espresso fanatic, so it was appropriate! Aside from the adorable text and unique display (which was beautifully packaged before I had to consolidate it for travel), there was definitely going to be an occasion to use these. It was likely going to be an upcoming game night/date night of some sort to commence. And, finally … the time came.
We had a few friends over for a usual game night, but I actually wore this outfit the night before just going out to dinner. I wanted “simple, yet semi-sexy.”
It’s never a dull moment for me when lace comes into the picture, so it all worked out! Although, I think the only thing that I will alter in the future is the waist. I pinned it a bit, as it’s awfully roomy—pretty much the only part in the garment that was sizably spacious.
