spades

hello! i hope everyone had a lovely weekend, mine was possibly more tiring than the week preceding it. let me try a little catch up here.

thursday night, my friday, i had a couple of friends from class that i hadn't seen in ages over and we had a good, old-fashioned sleepover. i made spaghetti and meatballs and we drank. . . well, pretty much whatever we could get our hands on (it was my friday!!) and talked and talked until the wee hours of the morning (or like midnight, maybe) and then went to bed and slept in. met up with a couple of friends for brunch in williamsburg and then a jaunt around the neighborhood for a bit before racing home to clean up and make potato spinach curry.

saturday my dad was in town, so sam and i headed up to midtown to see him speak about rock and roll. (my dad is the coolest.) we grabbed drinks and dinner after, then sam and i snuck to one more bar (a belgian beer place) before heading home to meet another friend, whose birthday it was, for one final nightcap. sunday morning i had to work, brutal as usual, but then came home and took a nice long nap before baking a completely french meal for some friends who came over (one who is french and therefore provided an excuse for me to cook everything with lots of butter.) i made a leek, mushroom and goat cheese galette; swiss and spinach souffl├ęs; and strawberry napoleons with coconut-white chocolate pastry cream.



this is what i wore to my dad's talk/dinner after; it reminded me of kate spade's clothing line, which i LOVE but will never be able to afford.

dress: boutique in greenpoint
sweater: thrifted
thigh highs: american apparel
shoes: pour la victoire!

and now the food!








recipes to come. hope everyone had a great [fashion[ week, more from me soon!

  7. This outfit is so candy-cute. It reminds me of gum drops. Really very happy and a great ensemble for having dinner with dad.

    When I see pics of your food, I just think how much time it probably took you to prepare them. I'm sure everyone who enjoys them think they're very lucky! :D
