This week’s fashionplate is at a new Moroccan restaurant and hookah lounge, Casablanca in the East Village. Love the cool door and light blue and white decor. Met a friend for belated birthday dinner at Casablanca and we decided to start of with some cocktails of course, the Basil Lily for me and the Phoenician Pimms cup for her. We then decided to split some things. The hummus and dip sampler was delish, and I had to ask for more bread to get every last bite of each tip. We also had a shrimp and avocado ceviche which was pretty solid. Then I opted for the Avocado and quinoa salad which was savory and satisfying yet light. She got the lamb moussaka which she liked. A few more rounds of cocktails and the night was underway.
The place was not very crowded on a Saturday night at 7, but this area doesn’t usually get busy until later and it started slowly filling up as we were finishing up. See how I styled our eggplant Janis menswear shorts and the complete ootd and fashion part of fashionplates below.
I love cozy days and cute puppies, specifically frenchies and anything that feels like sweats. For this #wallstreetwednesday meet Miles, an adorable frenchie that captured my heart. For this ootd I paired our brand new Lana charcoal sweater knit jogger pants, from our Fall/Winter 2015/2016 collection with some fun basics and a cool pump to jazz it up a bit. See the complete outfit of the day deets below.
This is the perfect way to dress up our jogger pant but still remain comfy and almost feel like you are wearing sweats or pjs.
This fashionplate is at a new casual spot in my hood, Chelsea. Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen is a gastropub that has another location in the Village but this spot is new and packed. Even at 8pm during the week the bar was still packed with happy hour dwellers. Thank god my friend got there a good 30 minutes before me and was able to secure a spot at the bar. They are known for having a lot of beers on tap but I’m not a huge beer girl so I opted for my favorite cold weather drink other than wine, bourbon. Yummy bullet on the rocks as well as some specialty cocktails. After a long day we were also starving and decided to split a bunch of things. The wings were good but not really spicy at all in either of our opinions which was a little disappointing. We also had the mac and cheese curds which was super yummy. The pork belly buns were the special of the day and were pretty decadent and yummy. My friend also had fish tacos which were meh.
Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. I opted to wear my comfy Tom Ford graphic tee and be casual and cute. Most of the crowd was more of the fratty i banker crowd, which is puzzling in this area, but whatever, as long as they aren’t spilling my drinks it’s all good. See the complete ootd deets below.
Check out Ford and Untitled model Bobby T wearing our dope “I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford” top on a run through Runyon Canyon. Doesn’t she look beyond gorg in it? Love when customers love our clothes!
Check out my friend and comedian Christina Calph in her latest video Dear Me on her You Tube channel Bad Girls Ball. She rocks our fab “You Can’t Sit with Us” tee in this segment . Here at Tasch we love girls who are smart, funny, cool, have a great sense of style and hot to boot! Definitely follow her Youtube channel and get yourself your own cute and comfy tee!
This week’s fashionplate is the Santina, another amazing creation from the Carbone team. I think I need to marry one of them and I’ll never go hungry and always be happy. Lol jk not really. This cheerful and playful restaurant is located right underneath the Highline near Hector’s Cafe the spot of many Law & Order SVU episodes in Meatpacking. I loved the open window concept and the square bar. A friend and me had reservations for a while and were seated pretty promptly.
My friend started of with wine but I decided to start with a fun cocktail, the Mangeanelli Punch which was similar to a fun margarita. We were starving so then we proceeded to start with the chickpeas pancake with avocado which was super yummy and different. We then decided to to split the Rigatoni Norma and the steak with shallots. Yum we wanted more of the the delicious eggplant pasta dish that is one of my favorite dishes at any Italian spot, but especially here. The steak was also very good and cooked perfectly medium rare. I decided to get a glass of champagne at the end of the meal as we perused the dessert menu and settled on the lime mergina which was light and the perfect end to the meal.
Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. There are a lot of fashionistas, artsy cool downtown types, the cooler hedge fund set, some couples and groups of tourists visiting who were lucky enough to score a ressie at a new hotspot. Since we visited during fashion week, I decided to rock our Stevie eggplant cami with a leather t back and straps and layer it up. You can see the full ootd deets below.
