ModCloth’s Uniquely You | Dinner Party Darling Dress Styled

Happy Spring everyone!

This morning in Chicago didn’t look Springish, however the weather in the afternoon improved to the sun shining brightly. Yay! Now that it’s officially Spring, it’s all about pretty, and fancy dresses. In honor of dresses, I’m bringing you a beautiful little black dress that can be worn to an evening wedding, fancy cocktail party, or a lovely date night.

Is she lovely?

Isn’t she lovely?

ModCloth recently contacted me to be part of their Uniquely You campaign on Wanelo. They sent me a snap of one piece, in this case the dinner party darling dress, and told me to add up to seven other pieces from ModCloth’s current collection to finish off my look. I felt flattered and excited that I get to put my personal spin on a classy little black dress, and make it work in a conservative look without skimping on details.

As you see from my Wanelo board (click each piece to get further details), I chose the basic long sleeve tee and opaque tights for the conservative take, then added all the special pieces and sparkle. For jewelry I chose this stunning statement necklace, classy pearl bracelet, and dainty rings. Then I added the beautiful black clutch with the lucite bow to mimic the bow detail of the dress, and to finish off the look with a pop of color the stunning turquoise peep-toe heels! Doesn’t this styled outfit make you want to go on a fancy dinner now?

If this one style wasn’t enough –check out my picks for Spring and Summer dresses from ModCloth. While looking through the collection of dresses it was so hard to choose a few to showcase.

Hope you all have a wonderful start to Spring. Stay empowered because it’s still Women’s History Month, and have you entered the giveaway? There is still time so hurry deadline is Monday 3.24.

Umair’s Sweetheart,

Ayesha

Road Trip & Spring Deity HOOTD

Happy Thursday everyone!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I feel like the week flew by and now I’m looking forward to the weekend.

As I mentioned for Memorial Day weekend we headed out to Cleveland, Ohio. We decided to take a road trip and enjoy the scenery from a car since we hardly get to drive. We arrived in Cleveland late on Friday night and went straight to bed. Saturday morning we hangout in downtown Cleveland, went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (pictures below) as we were entering one of the employees commented on my look and called me “the Spring deity” it made me laugh and I told them I was there to represent Spring. The Hall of Fame was good but not as great as I expected. I think I enjoyed the architecture more than the actual displays inside. In the afternoon we met with friends to have dinner at Stir Crazy Fresh Asian Cuisine. The restaurant has a unique concept of custom creating your stir fry, basically you get to pick which ingredients you would like in your dish and the chef cooks it up while you watch- similar in concept to a hibachi restaurant but quicker! I guess you can kind of screw up your dish if you over do it with the ingredients but mine turned out pretty good. The husband ordered a stir fry from the menu and he also enjoyed his dish.
After dinner we caught a viewing of Fast and the Furious 6 (I can’t believe this was the sixth and seventh is in the works!) You can check out our KISS movie review to see how we rate it tomorrow on the blog.

The next day we headed to Cedar Point with our friends. The husband and I hadn’t heard of Cedar Point until recently- I guess being from Florida the land of Disney World, Universal Studios and Bush Gardens we forgot other theme parks actually exist. Cedar Point was great- it was nice to enjoy some extreme roller coasters but the two hour lines were not fun. The newest roller coaster was Gate Keeper which we rated as second best to Millenium Force- we completely recommend that if you love roller coasters and visit Cedar Point. We left the park pretty late and were drained by the time we got to our hotel. Monday we headed back to Illinois and relaxed rest of the day by watching our newest Netflix tv binge, Alias.

I came across this amazing street art over the weekend. Her eyes are so mesmerizing! I have no idea if this art has any meaning, so if anyone knows please comment.  **UPDATE: Soon after posting this pic on Instagram I learned from a friend this art is done by the artist Shepard Fairey/Obey Giant.  After doing a bit of research now I know why she has such piercing eyes.  This particular piece is called “Mujer Fatal.”

Customer service- 3/10 (based solely on our waiter)
Ambiance (outside)- 9/10
Food- 7.5/10
Cost for couple-$$/$$$$
Recommend- yes
AnU overall rating- 7.5/10
