Venice Beach

Venice Beach nights -- what a treat.  As much as I miss having a crisp morning with a hot coffee, during the holiday season in NYC,  romping around Venice Beach, in November, in a slip dress, barefoot, is sort of unbeatable.  Venice is seriously adorable from the main drag of Abbot Kinney with its cluster of shops and colors to the beach boardwalk, there is so much to do and see. While I was there I met up with blogger pal Laurie Ferarro of The Rue Collective while she was out in LA for a visit from freezing NYC and we shopped on Abbot Kinney, drank coffee, and walked the palm tree lined streets. Also...you may have noticed that the slip dress in the below photos has clearly become my favorite dress (I tend…

Los Angeles Living So Far

Los Angeles

Hi Everyone – sorry for the delay in posting, as you know I moved from New York City to Los Angeles, so it was a bit of a task and I haven’t had a lot of time to just sit down and blog! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I made it to LA safely and my life has certainly changed quite a bit in just a few short weeks.  I went from having: a full time job living in my own studio apartment having a long distance relationship adhering to my own schedule            to living in a two bedroom apartment with my no longer long distance boyfriend having a dog – yes, you may have also seen sweet Huckleberry on my Instagram (I'm…

Places to Eat in NYC: Bagatelle

Looking for places to eat in NYC?  Bagatelle is a fabulous option with gourmet food and a chic location and atmosphere. Truffle pizza -- absolutely perfect appetizer for a few people! Delectable beef brisket. Tuna tartare on a crispy potato. Pan seared scallops. Bagatelle's ice cream Sunday is bigger than my face, as you can see (clearly I'm not excited at all). I recently enjoyed a lovely night and a delicious meal courtesy of Bagatelle in the meatpacking district. Bagatelle truly delivered in ever way from the food to the ambiance.  It's a spacious restaurant in NYC's trendy Meatpacking district, think where Samantha lived in Sex and the City and where Ramona Singer and Bethenny  Frankel opted to brunch last season on the Real Housewives of New York City.  Bagatelle is where you go…

I recently ventured over to Brooklyn for a blogger brunch hosted by The Regal and Hooch and I couldn't resist wearing this red lace dress by Michelle Mason.  Yes, it's a bit much for brunch but I really wasn't too worried about that because a dress like this deserves to be worn anytime, anywhere! There are a few versions of this dress on the market -- but this exact version is a little hard to find.  Scroll down to see links to similar pieces and to see the rest of my look! Similar versions to the dress: option 1, option 2, option 3.  Boots: exact pair here, option 2. Hope Everyone has a great week!
