Hello, my name is Aline and I've never seen The Godfather. Please don't shoot me. BUT I did get to attend my first "Godfather" themed event last night, thanks to the lovely people at Cavalli Cafe who made it all happen! This was my second visit to Cavalli Cafe, I always thought it wasn't my kind of place... a little too pish posh for my liking... but it's actually chill and the interior is fabulous. My favorite part is the luscious animal printed couches, so comfy and spacious! The black & white event gathered a large chunk of the Lebanese online community, which is awesome because I got to see all my favorite online people and fashion bloggers. There's really nothing like chit chatting with your girls while enjoying a yummy dinner. The hilarious part of having dinner with social media folk is that no one is allowed to touch the food until it has been photographed for Instagram and the blog. But we were a little too hungry at times and forgot to take pictures before digging in... OOPS.

I got a little carried away with my outfit for the evening, and did a bit of research for hair and makeup inspiration. The final look was something completely out of my comfort zone but I really love it! The most awkward part though was my faux-pearl necklace, it was a random costume necklace that a friend had given me ... that I had never ever worn, I decided to put it on since it went with the theme. I got into the car, and five minutes through the drive it suddenly broke. The beads went everywhere! I managed to salvage some of the necklace and tied the strings up to make a shorter necklace, I felt so bad for Maya's car!
Have you been to Cavalli Cafe?
