Champagne Saturday: A BonBon Rose Girl Does Philly

So, as you know, last weekend I jetted off for a weekend getaway with my ladies in the city of brotherly love. We had SO much fun that I forgot to take any proper outfit pics. I assure you that I busted out some cute looks, like my sequin pocketed Ann Taylor Loft cardi, for instance, but you’ll just have to take my word for it. HA! Oh, and no, we did not plan to all sport the same color bags. We’re just chicks who happen to love mustard. What can I say?

Take note of my puffer coat. I wore that bad boy ALL weekend! Is there anything warmer? Here are a few more puffers that I’m diggin’. Is it ridiculous for a Florida girl to have more than one puffer coat? Just wondering. Since it IS Champagne Saturday I should tell you about my beverage of choice. It was none other than a tall pitcher of pink cadillac margaritas. A girl needs a stiff drink to warm her up in 30 degree weather!

I promise that I’ll have a proper outfit post for you soon. We took our family photos last night and I’m dying to show y’all the leopard T-Bags batwing top that I rocked! So, what about you lovelies? Have you worn or drank anything fabulous lately? Tell us all about it or better yet…give us a link!

    Just back from Chicago and did we indulge in hot chocolate there with the blustery cold snowy weather?…… oh no! We went all the way with hot fudge sundaes at the Ghiradelli store…..yummmmm! No puffer coats for me though…..adds extra pounds. Like a sundae wouldn’t do that right? LOL

    Warm coats are a must and that one looks toasty!

    Oh, and jaunty is my new favourite word thanks to you. Right up there with ‘frock’, ‘greengrocer’, ‘icebox’ and ‘wireless’!

    You’re so right about the puffer coats – they are a lifesaver!

    Puffer jackets are perfect for cold weather! Brr! And I agree, you need a drink with a kick to jumpstart the body for that brisk wind!

    Going for the warmer versions of glamour myself these days…
    Although a couple of days ago I had the urge to wear a 20Β΄s slash contemporary handmade hat from Hamburgerstrasse in Berlin. And it sure made itΒ΄s impressions::::) Just love hats.
    Saturday night though.. and I am not drinking Champagne… but about to watch a documentary by Werner Herzog. (The wild man)

    I’ve always wanted a red puffer coat with a fur hood! I don’t know why. I’ve been soaking up eggnog lattes like they’re going out of style. Because they will be…soon!

    I’ve been too busy – in super rainy weather- (hence the very delayed comment on this post) to wear anything too fabulous lately, but enjoying lots of mulled wine, and we’re making cranberry orange vodka to pass out tomorrow and through the coming week!
