This week’s fashionplate is keeping it light and fresh during this summer heatwave we are experiencing. I decided to rock our Brigitte self tie halter for my dinner at the new location of Dirt Candy. By now, you all know my tastes veer between uber healthy and completely decadent. Dirt Candy somehow manages to embody both of these things in their larger lower eastside location while maintaining a vegan menu. I decided to try the poolside breeze which is a cocktail that makes you feel like drinking is good as it’s loaded with greens aka antioxidants. My dining companion stuck to vodka sodas. We decided to split a bunch of things. I ended up moving on to wine, a surprisingly dry Riesling. My favorite dish had to be the brussel sprout tacos, yummy and so fun to make with all the little accoutrements. We also enjoyed the tomato cake which had a slightly smokey taste to it and the creamed chard because who doesn’t love creamed anything. The one fail for us was the carrot dish. We both like the waffles but weren’t fans of the curried carrots, the flavors didn’t resonate well for us.
Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. The space, although small remains bright and airy with red booths and blond wood tables. The crowd is mostly downtown twenty and thirtysomethings, mostly groups of girls or dates, lots of fedoras and black. See how I styled my Brigitte halter below. Clearly I dig the all black everything look.
