Out on the Town

Cure for the Cold

02.25.15 | Permalink | Comment?

For our weekly girls brunch, we tried to grab a table at the ever-so-hot Dimes, but to no avail. It was SO cold on Saturday, too cold to wait outside. After running over to The Fat Radish, which was somehow booked the ENTIRE DAY (“you could try waiting for cancellations…”), we stumbled upon Skál. Skál is super low-key with a makeshift heating system and bar stools with duct tape holding their upholstery together. With that sad, it is surprisingly CHIC. By the time we sat down, Renee had already spotted the resident açaí bowl on the menu. I, veering toward the more unhealthy side, ordered banana pancakes topped with thin, caramelized sheets of smoked raspberry and a side of thyme and goat butter foam. Adrienne stuck with her brunch classic—the omelette of the day. The food was an excellent cure to an otherwise cold and snowy day. Dimes, we’ll see you in the summer!

Wardrobe Wednesday: Japan Edition

My mom’s hot pot with crab

I’ve been meaning to share these photos from my trip to Japan for a while—better late than never, right? I went to Japan to visit my family over the holidays, spending most of my time in Tokyo. It was a trip full of great eating, sight seeing, and even a bunny cafe. I posted some photos on instagram, but it was impossible to share all the photos I took during my trip. Check them out below!


Shopping in Ginza, a district of Tokyo known for luxury shopping


Hard to resist picking up totally unnecessary but irresistibly adorable knick knacks!


A giant bowl of oyster udon in Ginza


The view from my parent’s balcony


A visit to the bunny cafe – cuteness overload!


Checking out Denmark, The Royal Cafe at Mitsukoshi, a Japanese department store


Pancake bites at The Royal Cafe—delicious!


The best miso soup I’ve ever had at a Tsukiji Market, the largest fish market in the world.


Visited the Tsukiji-Hongwanji temple to ring in the New Year.

A Styluste Stormtrooper

Rebecca is wearing a Chanel Fur Helmut Hat, Cos Coat, Zara Leggings, Celine Box Bag, Suzanne Arata Half Mitts, and Chanel Flower Sneakers.
I absolutely adored this hat from the moment I saw it on the FW13 runway. Now I can’t help but feel like some sort of weird fashion stormtrooper… or at least that’s what my boyfriend calls me when I wear it! I like wearing it on strolls with Renee through Central Park. That way I stay warm and also get heckled by 12-year-old boys on razor scooters. Add in my Chanel lace flower sneakers and I’m golden.

The Flat Life

Renee is wearing a Beanie c/o Hat & Dreams, Adrienne Landau Vest, BCBG Max Azria Coat, Uniqlo Cashmere Sweater, Zara Faux Leather Leggings, Chanel Oxfords, Saint Laurent Duffel Bag.

I have more pairs of heels than I care to admit. Black pumps, multiple versions of the heeled bootie, chunky heeled sandals, the list goes on. But this season I’ve really been focusing on growing my flat collection. With the sneaker trend going strong, I see no harm in being comfortable while running around in this freezing weather! These Chanel oxfords are the newest addition to my collection. They have the perfect masculine silhouette with feminine touches like the patent leather details and slightly raised heel. I haven’t been able to stop wearing them!

A Little Bit Wild on Park

Rebecca is wearing a Vintage Armani Collezioni Coat, Zara Faux Leather Pants, Vintage Saks Fifth Avenue Mink Hat, Suzanne Arata Half Mitts, The Row Python Classic Baguette Clutch, and Givenchy Eel Booties.
There’s nothing like turning a prim and proper Park Avenue appropriate outfit just a little bit wild with some pops of leather, fur, and exotics. My favorite? Pairing a vintage coat with these crazy Givenchy runway booties. The banana heel is so unexpected (and quite comfortable!) and the cool texture adds some interest to an otherwise all black look. I know it’s very American of me to glam up my ready-to-wear using accessories, but I think it works well when you have a habit of owning the most ridiculous shoes and bags. It’s a running joke between Renee and me—I don’t have many “simple black pump” options, but somehow have two pairs of green satin stiletto heels.
