Summerlicious Nights

Toronto kick’s off their Summerlicious season!!!  Which means this petite plus diva gets to get dolled up to discover and experience the diverse cuisine this city has to offer at exceptional value!!!  For two mouth-watering weeks in July, foodies savour delicious three-course prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at more than 200 of the city’s top restaurants.

Last Night a gf and I tried out CHURCH APERITIVO BAR.  Located in an old church at Queen and Dovercourt….this spot’s speciality is Italian cuisine.  The food was delish with very generous portions. The meatballs were just like my  ex’s Nona used to make (once you added some of their chili-flake sauce).  There’s a built-in 18% gratuity, and the paired wine with the menu turned out to be $15 PER GLASS.  A little outrageous, I think, but waddya gonna do once your belly is full and the bill comes.  Sadly, I failed to take any photos of my food … which is very unusual for me… guess we were more hungry than we thought.  🙂

Here’s what I wore:

Does this dress look familiar?  That’s cuz … it was one of the dresses I wore for the collaboration photo shoot entitled “IS IT SPRING YET?” with Rebecca Northcott Photography and Your Big Sister’s Closet this past Spring.

If you look closely at the photo shoot pictures you’ll see my bra strap is showing … sigh.  At the time I didn’t have one that was suitable of the way the back of this dress is cut.  Buuuuuuut in the newer pictures from this post – this has been corrected with Cacique’s Lace Racerback Bra!!

Black suede platform sandals (Nine West) give me the height needed to wear this lovely maxi dress without any alterations!

Short Diva Trick – I tied a wee knot in the bottom of my dress so that I don’t trip over the length whist indoors without those sky-high platform sandals.

It was a bit on the cooler side that night – with temperatures threatening to dip into high teens tonight (+18) … so keeping that in mind, I paired this gorgeous maxi with an open black 3/4 sleeved cardi (Reitmans).  In an effort to keep it ‘summertime fun’, I tied it in front rather than keeping it open so that the lovely paisley pattern doesn’t get hidden. 🙂
