My Final Mission

WHAT I AM WEARING:
White House Black Market Dress c/o Skinny Cow (here) (similar) (similar) // Zara Heels (similar) (similar) //  White House Black Market Bag c/o Skinny Cow (similar) // Forever 21 Bracelets (similar) // Gifted Earrings (similar) // Forever 21 Glasses (here)

Well, this it. My very last Skinny Cow Wocave Mission Recap. In case you have zero clue what I am talking about, you can catch up from the beginning and see the other adventures here and here.

This summer Skinny Cow promoted a new wave of women time, called Wocave (wo-cah-vay). Think women cave; our own special place where we spend time with friends doing what we love and NO BOYS ALLOWED.

My third and final mission was to have brunch, some bubbly (okay maybe the bubbly wasn't in the instructions), kick off our shoes, snuggle on the couch with one of my very best friends and watch the 1961 movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. I am embarrassed to admit, but this was my first time to watch it. Holly Golightly, yes I love her. Such a classic and in case you didn't know, this movie is where the infamous LBD (little black dress) was named. There is a little trivia for ya!


After the movie, a couple of mimosas and empty plates, we headed to White House | Black Market at the Domain for a little shopping. The second part of my mission was to find my own little black dress and channel my inner Audrey Hepburn. I loved the one I found, pictured in the above pictures. I have always shied away from peplum and anything that accentuates curves, but this one fit like a glove. It's a timeless style and I think Ms. Hepburn would approve. We also played dress up and tried on different pieces in the store.

 

We ended our day with a couple of shopping bags, red sangria and a toast to our friendship. I would say that this was definitely Wocave perfection. Wouldn't you?


If I had to sum up this Skinny Cow Wocave journey in one word it would be GRATEFUL. I know that sounds cheesy, but let me explain. I am busy. My girlfriends are busy. Most of us all have full time jobs, husbands and kids. It is so incredibly hard to get together and do something fun with one another without any interruptions. This program empowered us to carve out time just for us. To be girls and to do girly things together. I encourage every lady out there to take time at create your own Wocave. Go get a pedicure, take a painting class, plan a book club, or better yet escape for a weekend getaway. Whatever you do, just find your sweet sanctuary. You and your girlfriends deserve it.

And don't forget to bring along your Skinny Cow ice cream. These two treats are a limited edition and will be gone soon. They didn't last one week in our fridge. The Chocolate Covered Cherry Cone  is hands down my favorite out of all the ones I have tried. My girls, well they gobbled up the Pretty in Pink Velvet Truffles in no time.

I have never seen this movie either! I have always wanted to so now I can see it with my daughter. I love an LBD. And your purse is so cute - perfect for fall and Christmas!! As our kids get older, it seems like my friends and I only see each other at our kids' events. For now, that will have to do(: Glad you had fun! Susan

You channelled her perfectly, Shanna. Even before I read the blogpost and just saw the picture, I thought "very Aubrey Hepburn-esque". Love it! Happy Thursday!

I HAVE seen Breakfast at Tiffany's but only because a girlfriend of mine insisted I watch it. I was so not interested but she loaned me the DVD and it was REALLY good! I love doing girly things with friends too.
