I try to stick to fashion on this little blogski, but today, I must digress and admit to the fact that I am the biggest baby ever. Over the weekend, I had some sort of terrible allergic reaction to something that caused my right eye to itch and water uncontrollably for like a bajillion, trajillion hours and have been on all kinds of eye drops and ointments ever since. I know it’s not a big deal and “this too shall pass” as my Magpie Mother pointed out while I was tearfully begging for her Dr. Mom opinion, but — I’ve just been having a big ol’ pity party for myself nonetheless and I need to snap out of it. What better way than by planning an imaginary Whine + Cheese party?
I’d serve wine in colored, stemless drinkware ($35 for set of 4) —
I’m weirdly obsessed with these neon corkscrews (around $100 each) by L’Aguiole, which would certainly make a lovely accent-piece (and come in handy):
Meanwhile, I’d serve treats on some dainty paper plates (who says paper needs to look cheap?! — $7.50 for 10):
We’d keep some vino / champers chillin in a sleek ice bucket ($175):
And you better believe there would be a nice spread of cheese and other treats ($24 for cheese slate board) —
I just discovered these tearable cotton napkin rolls — you buy a roll for $27 from MyDrap and can just tear them off as you need them!
Of course, good tunes are de-rigueur — especially when issued from a hot pink iPod dock ($162):
I’m feeling better already…
