Mr. Mickey took me out for an elegant dinner date on the evening of my birthday. When we arrived at our favorite restaurant in town, Gourmet & Company, the lovely owner, Von, showed us to our usual table where there were cards, a bouquet of roses, and a gift from the best jewelry store in town.
I admit I have a weakness for jackets and scarves. A jacket can set the tone for the appropriate look for any event. A scarf can pull together a look, serve to keep you warm, and add a touch of elegance.
This jacket is one I recently bought from Finley House Couture, located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Mark always takes such good care of us when we shop there.
The black tank top and slim leg pants are classic pieces. The suede heels are old from Saks. The clutch is also old. The link bracelet was another special birthday gift from Mr. Mickey’s daughter, Regina.
We toasted with champagne and recalled the many excellent meals and special occasions we have enjoyed at this table. The elegant bouquet included one perfect red rose for every decade of my life and one stunning white rose for the fabulous decade that Mr. Mickey has been my date.
The beautiful gift was a stunning Thistle & Bee hinged bangle bracelet from Gregory Isbell in Johnson City.
