saturday brunch

I wore this to brunch today at Dolores but you can call me Lolita - I've raved about this restaurant before for dinner, but I've never been there for brunch before and wasn't sure what to expect. A lot of times I expect bad service because brunch in Miami can be crowded and quite insane. However, there weren't that many people at the brunch today so I guess I was just expecting normal service? We ended up with probably one of the worst waitresses ever. She did come over to apologize to our table and she said it was her first time serving, but I'm not sure if she was telling the truth. I will say that despite the terrible service, I really really enjoyed my food. Whenever I go to brunch I 99% of the time order eggs benedict as my weekend treat to myself, and this time I ordered eggs benedict with short rib replacing the canadian bacon. It was awesome. I'll def be back for the food (and the reasonably priced mimosas and bloody marys) but I'll be sure to expect the worst in terms of service beforehand.
As far as the outfit itself goes, I was going for a slightly 70's look, but with the pants it almost came out a little costume-y, so I ditched them for some skinnies right before I went out the door. When I showed up at the restaurant, my guy friend told me I looked like Molly Ringwald from the 80's lol. I will take that as a compliment because 16 Candles and Breakfast Club are two of my favorite movies.

  1. I love the drapey vest. Breakfast Club is an all time classic film :-)

  2. I don't think those jeans are costumey! I love that silky vest - adds a great layer of interest

  3. That VEST. oohhhhhh that ves. I love when you score at Forever - if that material feels as good as it feels, you've got a winner. :)

  4. thank you! next time i'll wear the pants.. I'm still getting used to wearing anything but skinnies, the transition is rough!

  5. The material is kind of cheap feeling haha (not surprising w/ F21), but I love the drapy-ness and that I can wear it closed with a belt or falling open
