Pearls & Beignets

Last night Patrick and I went out to dinner with lovely Solanah and her husband, Sam, in Portland’s Pearl District.

We dined at Irving Street Kitchen, however, all of us failed to remember the hoopla that surrounds the Pearl come First Thursdays. Silly us. But regardless, we had a delightful time chitchatting (Solanah and I about vintage and the boys about technology) at drinking.  Okay, they had more fun drinking than I did. Mint Juleps and I apparently will never be friends. No matter how much I try. *sigh* I guess I’ll stick to my non-alcoholic Disneyland Mint Juleps.

I ordered the fried chicken, which was delicious, followed by my favorite dessert of all time.  I nearly exploded with happiness when I saw it on the menu. Beignets. Nom.

Necklace and Bracelet: Birthday gift a few years back from my dad.
Earrings: A gift from one of my mum’s co-workers who knew I was into vintage!
Four Star Fashions Blazer: Guh…don’t remember.
Melvine Miller Dress: Thrifted (by my dad!)
Shoes: Farylrobin via Buffalo Exchange
Purse: House of Vintage, Portland
