A Wall of Roses

Every now and then we are all have the humbling experience of eating our own words, and unfortunately I had to do so on my birthday. On Mother's Day I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and came across a post by Kim Kardashian of what at first glance looked like a giant rice krsispy treat sitting on grass. The caption revealed that it was instead a giant wall of roses given to her by her fiance, Kanye West. The first thing out of my mouth was, "What in the World is she going to do with a wall of roses?"  Well, when I arrived at Lucky 32 for my birthday dinner and found  on the exterior of the restaurant was a gorgeous wall of  knockout roses I immediately answered my own sarcasm filled question--
 Take pictures, duh!  Though the wall didn't quite compare to Kim's it was still beautiful none the less. 

This black and white gingham dress was so light and airy and the perfect ensemble for the evening. Gingham is one the trends that was featured a lot on the runway during Spring 2014 Fashion Week so I was excited to finally be able to incorporate it into my wardrobe. With my strappy black sandals and bright lips, I think I managed to look chic and sophisticated, a modern day Dorothy.

Kim and I used a wall of roses to take pictures, what would you use it for?
