Tina Live in Concert Tee + Industry Night (Dinner) in Ottawa Recap

Outfit deets:

* DIY Tina Turner concert top (thrifted for $2 & cut up; I used THIS tutorial, sort of) which I made for the gym and have only worn it out instead.

* F21 liquid leather bralette (I’m loving bralettes lately and never go bra-less but did on this day…).

* H&M skirt from my trip to Toronto Fashion Week (part 1 & part 2) in March 2013 (see the vlog / video I made HERE).

* Aldo wedges (old) and seen with a pencil skirt and bright sweater.

* Accessories:  F21 bangle, Ardene cross-body/clutch & Gucci shades.

Happy Wednesday everyone!  How has your week been thus far?

Monday night was awesome, I went on a double date to an Industry Night dinner; basically what that means is a special dinner, mainly for people in the serving industry (I’m not one of them…anymore), that is put on by a top chef of a restaurant in Ottawa.  I had vaguely heard of this before, but never been.  

It takes place on the last Monday of every month and is a four-six course meal for $25.  The word meal is relative as the portions were sharing plates between the four of us, except the main dish–shared between two–and the dessert where everyone got their own.

The restaurant that was putting on this month’s evening was Town, a restaurant that I would say is a mix between Italian and French food.  A place I’ve been to once, been meaning to go back to, and really loved (have the meatballs, if you go). 

We tried a variety of food, and this is definitely a meal you need an open palette for; not for the picky eaters, that’s for sure.  We had things like smelt fish, octopus, porchetta, lamb sausages etc.  I am a big food lover and not shy to try anything so this was right up my alley!  Everything was delicious, but the octopus and lamb sausages took the cake for me.  

I ended up vlogging our evening and am currently editing the footage to share with you very soon!  Here’s a peak at my outfit from Monday night.

Hope you’re having a great week–cheers.
