The latest fashionplate features our Natalie blouse at Street Taco. Met one of the girls here for an overdo catch up session over our fav mexican food. When we arrived here on a Thursday evening after 8pm it was packed and she snagged two seats at the bar so we ordered some margs while waiting for our table. They have a cute little taco truck in the back of the restaurant. We started with the nachos which were our favorite part of the meal- a sheet tray full of cheese covered chips and all the goodies. Of course we got more margs and we also got 2 tacos each. We both got the chorizo which was solid. I also got the blackened fish which was kinda lackluster. She enjoyed her pork belly taco a lot. The crowd skewed young with fresh out of college young professionals of the bro variety. Would go back for happy hour but so many other Mexican places around so not at the top of our list for a repeat. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate features our Taylor buffalo check flannel at the garment district’s Rag Trader. Met my sister here for an end of the week catch up on a cold day, so layers were key. I got there first and settled into their tufted green banquettes. I love all the old Vogues on display and various old garment factory items, that’s what I geek out to as a fashion designer. People were just getting there for happy hour so of course I ordered a glass of Cab. Once my sister arrived we decided to split a few things. Our least favorite thing on the menu was the shaved apple salad, it wasn’t bad just a bit too salty for our taste. The fried chicken sliders were good just wish they came with more than 2. We loved the siracha deviled eggs they had a nice quick to them. The star of the meal was the speck pizza, it was so good we forced ourselves to finish it all. Next time I’ll have to save room for dessert-drunken donuts yum. Feel free to dress casual or come in your after work garb. The crowd skews from people who work in the area and tourists. See how I styled this fashion plate below.

The latest fashionplate features our Riri cropped sweater at my birthday brunch at the Loyal! I had a bday dinner with the boo at Raoul’s and another girls bday dinner at Dos Caminos. But had to get in a fashion plate for the girls bday brunch and check out someplace new. It was fairly crowded for a late Saturday brunch before Christmas and we decided to to get cocktails and raw bar to start. Cocktails were cute and served adorably and were most importantly delish. We got oysters and lobster cocktails both which were great. I split the burger with one of my girlies and it was so yummy. The duck fat tots it came with were unreal. Since it was my bday the gay bestie insisted we get the Sundae set and candy shop and do yourself a favor if you’re with a group get this dessert even if it’s just for the gram or polaroid. I ended up switching from specialty cocktails to a martini at a certain point during brunch because it was my bday and I wanted to get turnt. Shout out to our lovely server Iris, she’s the bomb. See how I styled this fashionplate and all the OOTD deets below.
The latest fashionplate features our repurposed Jane’s Addiction vintage tee at a holiday lunch with my mom and sister at Maison Pickle. We decided to quick start dry January in December and stick to carb loading. It’s all about balance right? We got the fried chicken and challah french toast and it was delish and SO MUCH food. So yum. We also got the small sized mac & cheese and it was also rich and decadent. And last but not least we got the Deluxe french dip that had a gruyere fondue which was also amazing. We couldn’t finish all of the food and left ready to walk off our meal and shop the holiday markets and Saks and Bergdorfs. For a late lunch the restaurant was half full. Next time I want to sit in the secluded booth where I think some rapper and his entourage were eating. Not cool anymore to know every rapper :-( See how I styled this fashionplate and all the ootd deets here.
