Look for Less: Polished and Practical

By |December 4th, 2011|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

It sorta seems like life went ahead and decided to cram as much as possible into the last few months of the year.  Sort of like it forgot and then was like, “Oh crap! We gotta do all this.”  So, that keeps ladies like you and me pretty busy.  In between all of the end of year festivities, we still need to find time to run those never ending errands.  They sure don’t take a holiday, do they?  This is where that whole “fashion vs function” argument comes into play.  Is it ever possible to be both?  These three celebrities prove that it is, in fact, feasible to be both polished and practical while running errands.

Why Did You Eat That: Bond, BondST

By |November 1st, 2010|New York, Why Did You Eat That?|

While in NY last week, I took my boo to a New York City institution. I figured he needed to really see the city and have some pretty delicious sushi in the meantime… so, off to BondSt we went. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you may miss the front door. Tucked in a townhouse on… you guessed it, Bond Street, you enter the main dining room via the stairs or the lounge below by taking a few steps down.

Upon entering, the room is abuzz with attractive couples and groups of suits. The staff is startlingly attractive and the ambiance is magical. If dining upstairs, you’ll be whisked to the elevator and seated in yet another beautiful room. While I’ve eaten just about everything on the menu, a few star players are the Wagyu Tataki, Tuna Crispy Rice, Broiled Chilean Sea Bass, and the Banana Milk Chocolate Dim Sum for dessert. You’re welcome. I’ve ordered for you.
