an oscar moment

Dress: Oscar de la Renta borrowed from TheRealReal; Shoes: Manolo Blahnik; Clutch: Charlotte Olympia; Sunglasses: Saint Laurent; Bracelets: Vita Fede; Belt: Gap; Earrings: BaubleBar

This past weekend was one of those weekends that made me fall in love with San Francisco all over again. Don't you just love moments of clarity like that? I've been craving it lately.

After battling a week-long cold last week (sorry for the radio silence around here, I could barely talk most days!), I was able to muster through enough Emergen-C and cough drops, throw on this unbelievably twirl-worthy Oscar de la Renta dress on loan from The RealReal and head to our team holiday masquerade party (a dinner cruise to boot!). 

There's something about the right dress sometimes that makes a night come alive and this particular one certainly didn't disappoint. We cruised into the Bay around Alcatraz and then under a glowing (but deserted) Golden Gate Bridge, which was closed for construction for the first time in ages, and simply admired the city from afar. After docking back at the pier, we ducked into Rickhouse for a late nightcap -- enjoying the comfort that only a cozy corner booth can offer. And this dress? Well I may not want to part with it just yet. Oscar certainly knew how to make them, didn't he?

How was your weekend?

  1. that is a stunning dress! Your clutch is beautiful too, perfect little accessory to the printed dress.

    Glad to hear you were feeling well enough for your party, so horrible to have to go out to events when you're feeling unwell!

  23. Any garment worth keeping begins with gorgeous fabric, something this Oscar de la Renta number does. Your choice to add a chic pop of white makes it perfectly playful and stunningly perfect, Krystal.
