Drinks, Grub, and Good People

Over the weekend my roommate’s parents visited to help her move to Chicago for a few months (read: VERY SAD DEPRESSED SAHRA in the future). Whenever they’re in town they graciously treat us to meals, drinks, and shopping at the top places in the city.

For brunch we went to the famed, timeless B Bar and Grill on Bowery.  I wore a Targeet dress, with my DB Sandals, vintage bag, and my hair in a bun I made using the tutorial from Forever Amber, which can be found here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After brunch and packing up Eliza’s bedroom we headed to Cafe Bar, an adorable lounge that doubles as a day time family destination in Astoria, Queens. Not only is the decor amazing, but they offer amazing food and drinks. We met up with a family of friends to say hello to their son and played Pictionary while I sipped Very Berry Mojitos. This adventure was immediately followed by a cab to the UES for our favorite classic Italian restaurant, Giovanni’s Venticinque.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the amazing, filling, delectabe meal we rushed downtown for a super secret last surprise for my best friend… Harry Potter in Imax/3D! Though I’d already seen the movie, seeing it in Imax/3D was even better, and the company was perfection.

For the evening’s events I wore this BCBG dress, Aldo wedges, and a Forever 21 varsity jacket.

All in all, it was an amazing last day, though now I’m rather sad. and alone. well, more fashion for you to enjoy then!

Lower East Side

The weekend has taken new meaning to me since I have the normal 9-6 job now (weekdays actually ending around 8 due to classes). This weekend in particular was supposed to be busy doing final projects and studying…instead, I got drunk for two days straight.

Saturday I woke up in need of some brunch, so my roommate and I fancified ourselves and headed to the Lower East Side, to this delicious place, Sebastian. We started our morning there with a lovely bottle of Rose and mimosas.

After brunch, we shopped around in the hopes of finding an open fabric store to actually do my homework, but instead we found cute dresses and a mop pup!

We bar hopped for most of the day Saturday, and I had my first ever Bloody Mary…Which I did not like. We dined at Sebastian again for dinner, and everyone at the table raved about the steak, while the Penne with tomato and basil I had was honestly divine. I do suggest the restaurant for a lovely french date!
