Girl Crush: Go-Go-Gomez

By |May 15th, 2013|Celebrity Style|

selena gomez fashionOnce a wizard of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez has ditched her Disney darling act as most recently showcased in the raunchy film, Spring Breakers.  Sure she caught a temporary case of Bieber fever, but it seems Ms. Gomez is growing up and moving on.  It’s alright, girl.  We’ve all made mistakes.  If we looked back at at my boyfriend at twenty, I’d be a little red faced too.  Along with her dating and career choices, her style is also evolving and with her glossy locks, long legs, and girl next door (in your dreams) looks, she’s setting herself up to be a real red carpet darling.  Not one to shy away from a bikini or midriff baring top (clearly, she spent two hours on the big screen in not much else), Gomez has captured the perfect mix between young woman and youthful age appropriateness- unlike some of her tween trainwreck graduates.  To get Gomez’s enviable style, grab some key pieces below and start doing some sit ups, like right now.

Why Did You Wear That: Oh Hey, Crochet!!

By |April 17th, 2012|Why Did You Wear That?|

crochet poncho tunicWhile crochet is often associated with granola loving tree huggers or the back of your granny’s couch in doily form, it appears to be making quite the comeback and doing so quite stylishly.  So, you can go ahead and put down the Kashi and prunes.  Sure, sure, you could take it up as a new hobby.  There are enough books out there to teach yourself how to craft up your very own crochet creation… but who really has time for that?  Besides, there are plenty or pretty options already available and you won’t have to risk chipping a nail.  Crochet makes for great accessories or a sexy (knotty?) beach coverup.  The open weave gives you just enough skin showing and I mean, talk about ventilation.

Why Did You Eat That: Musical Chairs

By |January 3rd, 2011|New York, Why Did You Eat That?|

Once upon a time, I was gallivanting through the West Village when I stumbled upon a big wooden door.  Being the ever curious girl that I am, I went ahead and entered said wooden door to see what kind of magic it held inside.  Magic was right. I entered a room that looked like it didn’t even belong in New York City.  It was old and quaint and had twinkling chandeliers dangling from its soaring ceilings.

I still didn’t know where I was until I asked the bartender. He informed me that I was at One If By Land Two If By Sea. I had heard of it, but had never gone.  It was supposed to be one of the most romantic restaurants in the city and now I could see why. I bid the bartender adieu and vowed that some day I would return to this magical place with my very own Prince Charming.

Flash forward seven months, and I returned to One If By Land Two If By Sea this past weekend for their Sunday Jazz Brunch.  I couldn’t imagine anything more “old” New York than listening to jazz over bellinis in such a beautiful place.  They have several delightful options on their brunch menu (served from 11:30am-2:00pm). I ordered the brioche French toast (with carmelized bananas, toasted pistachios, and creme anglaise) and my handsome companion ordered the leek and bacon quiche.  Both were delightful in two very different ways.  While his was hearty and savory, mine was like eating dessert for breakfast.  I must say that the combination of delicious food, great music, and overall ambience was exactly the way a Sunday should be spent.
