Sometimes Arthur and I like to do fancy stuff. My aunt and uncle gave us a gift card to the Ritz for Christmas last year, so we used it at the San Francisco hotel this weekend for dinner at their restaurant, Parallel 37.
I wore a Mata Traders dress that makes me feel like Billie Holiday. I love this dress because it’s not the usual silhouette you might see me wearing, and it’s not on my usual color palette. Its cute geometric print is reminiscent of novelty prints I’ve seen on dresses from the 20s all the way through the 40s, and I love its faux wrap and longer, asymmetrical peplum.
