Oyster Happy Hour

“Oysters are the most tender and delicate of all seafoods. The stay in bed all day and night. They never work or take exercise, are stupendous drinkers, and wait for their meals to come to them.”
– Hector Bolitho ‘The Glorious Oyster’ (1960)
I wish I was an Oyster! It’s definitely my spirit animal. 🙂
Anyway, my husband and I recently saw Alonzo King Lines Ballet – it was amazing! Before the show, we met at Anchor & Hope for their happy hour. They have 1/2 dozen oysters + a stout for $11. Really cool venue, lovely service and a great offering. If you’re in the neighborhood (FiDi/ SoMa), you should definitely check it out.
After getting our Happy Hour on, we walked over to Yerba Buena Center of Arts for Alonzo King Ballet. We saw their ballet last year for my bday with some friends, and ran into one of the couples there again this time.  I love traditions [anything happy more than once, is a tradition, in my book] 🙂
DressByron Lars at Anthropologie; also comes in Ivory, which is also divine!!!
Handbag: Kate Spake (old). Similar: Balenciaga Papier yellow calfskin tote. Lauren Ralph Lauren Charleston Satchel is stunning and on sale for $140!! Kate Spade Southport Avenue Small Jenny is not as ‘yellow’, if you don’t want to feel tied down with something too bright (on sale via Kate Spade for $140). The Everywhere Tote by J.Mclaughlin is great for a pop of bright color for $100!
Pumps: old, similar: Manolo Blahnik (4″ heel) comes in soooo many scrumptious colors ($595 @ Nordstrom). It’s hard to resist the iconic red lining in this classic pair by Christian Louboutin ($675 @ Nordstrom). If this $$$ is out of your comfort zone (like most of us), worry not, I have some great options for you – that’ll be easy on the eyes and your wallet. BCBGeneration Taleese cutout pump are a must have (50% off @ Nordstrom for $48). And these BCBGeneration Talyn Slingbacks are also very very cute (on sale for $59). Nine West Jackpot pumps have a 3″ heel, if you’d like something shorter ($78 @ Nordstrom).
Bonus Shoe: I’m crazy about this crystal-embellished, satin pump by Badgley Mischka. They don’t go with the dress I’m wearing at all, but I came upon them while browsing, and just had to share with y’all – like right now!! Seriously, check ’em out!!
Earrings: old; but these by Nadri would look great with this dress! And here’s a ravishing pair by Lisa Freede.
