{Outfit}: Mandala and Wine Night

Jan 22 (1) Jan 22 (5) 

  Tuesday January 22, 2013


This is what I wore to a very unique event called "Mandala and Wine Night". I wanted to wear something very comfy and yet with personality, so I went with these funky leggings and comfy flats.

{Shirt: Madison (Panama)  ;  Leggings: Madison (Panama)  ;  Flats: Charlotte Russe (U.S.A.)  ;  Hat: Forever21.com}

My kitties decided to be models for the day and photobomb a whole lot of my photos. Aren't they just adorable?!!

The event I went to tonight was really special and unique. It consisted of each person picking a blank Mandala (which is like circular art design) and then painting it whichever way you wanted. I was surprised to see just how fun it was to color while drinking wine (and eating brownies!) with friends.

I was even more amazed at how each person's masterpiece turned out! I loved all the vibrant colors people picked and how unique each Mandala looked. 

I have never been to an event like this before, but I loved it so much that I can't wait to go again!

This is what my Mandala looked like in the end:

I really like how it turned out!!


I also had a chance to admire all the beautiful art that Michelle, the host of the event, has painted in her free time. I was aaaaaamazed at just how talented she is!! You can find more info of her amazing work on Facebook HERE!
