The latest fashionplate features the gorgeous Tasch Natalie blouse at La Contenta Oeste in the West Village. Met some friends here for a brunch to catch up and enjoy the finally spring weather. I made a res so we were seated right away. They have $8 brunch cocktails yay! I had a Mexican Coffee as did my friend’s hubby. She had a marg and my other friend had a martini. Drinks of all types going down. We then got guac to start. I was uber sad they wouldn’t make their famous nachos which I love at the les location. I guess I’ll have to make my way back for hh I guess so I can have those banging nachos again. Then we ordered another rounds of margs because hey it’s Saturday. I got the enchiladas suizas which were delish. One got the carne asada tacos which he loved. The other two both got the breakfast burrito which they also loved. More drinks turned into a full daytime drinking affair.
I still love this spot EVEN though they wouldn’t make my nachos. Lol. This is a come as you are Mexican joint but I glammed it up a little the Tasch Natalie blouse. See how I styled this fashionplate and all the meal deets below.
Check out the latest fashionplate featuring a Tasch cropped hoodie for a brunch catch up with one of my og besties. I decided to abstain from alcohol for this brunch. It was pretty crowded on a Saturday afternoon but we got seated pretty quickly. We decided to dig in and order 2 pizzas to split. The grammy was a great riff on a grandma pie. We also got the Arnstein which had a delish vodka sauce and pepperoni. We couldn’t finish everything and the leftovers were as great as the meal. See how we styled this fashionplate and all the ootd deeds 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.

The latest fashionplate is a fun daytime brunch at the Jane Hotel’s new bright and airy Italian spot Old Rose and features one of my favs- the Goldie bodysuit. I literally could wear a bodysuit everyday and die happy. Met a friend for a catch up brunch here. We met a bit before 1pm and the place wasn’t full yet. We started with some delish cocktails and also a cold brew for me because #caffeine. Wr got oysters to start because it’s never too early for oysters. I got the breakfast pizza. Pizza + eggs= 2 of my other fav things. My friend had an American breakfast. Everything was delish I need to come back to try the vodka burrata pizza asap. Dress is chic and casual. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate features our satin Janis shorts at the new vegan/ veggie spot ABC V. I went here for brunch with a gf and we sat at the bar as it was already packed at noon. We both started with delish matcha coladas. We then decided to splitzies some eats. We got the sambal and cheddar dosa and omg so delish. We also go the gluten free almond pancakes which were great, the little beaker with maple syrup was adorbs too. The fingerling potatoes were great as well. I added a cold brew because we all know I need my caffeine. This spot was so yummy and it was a mix of girl gangs and couples and families. I definitely will be back to try dinner. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
Check out a brunchtime fashionplate featuring our Goldie bodysuit at Pig Bleecker. For a catch up brunch with the bestie we decided to finally check out Pig. I got a Bleecker Southside and a cold brew to drink because you know I’m a trap queen, errr beverage queen. We then decided to splitzies a bunch of things. The pigs in doughnuts weren’t as good as we expected. However everything else was great. The veal meatballs were tender and flavorful with lots of sauce and cheese. The mac and cheese with goldfish was pretty bomb. We also dug the burger and fries. All in all a fatty meal that required a leisurely walk home. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
Check out the latest fashionplate featuring our repurposed customized vintage AC/DC tee at While We Were Young. One of my girlfriends and me have been wanting to check this place out for a while so we decided on going to brunch at noon in order to snag a table. It’s a super cute spot in the West Village and we love the pink and pastel vibes going on here. We started with iced coffees and cocktails. My friend got the While We Were Young and I got the Bradford’s Mistress which was not too sweet and slightly smokey. Both are super gorg shades of pink to boot. We both got the truffle omelet which was very good. As expected it was mostly girls, I wouldn’t drag my man here. I think their was one bf who was being a good trooper. But definitely a girls catchup spot in my book. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate features our pink velvet shorts at the new Whitmans Hudson Yards. Met some friends here for lunch after a much needed day of beauty. This location isn’t as crowded at the original East Village location. We got some beers and wine. I love the burgers but had had a burger the other day so I opted for their philly cheesesteak which is also delish I got double cheese on it because I love cheese. The cheesesteak comes with fries. Burgers do not come with fries. The juicy lucy is also a big hit. The hound is also delish. This location is much bigger and they deliver to me which I love. See how I styled this fashionplate below.

This fashionplate features our re-purposed Ramones vintage tee at Blue Ribbon Federal Grill. Met the bestie here for brunch on a rainy weekend. We had some cocktails. My friend got the prix fix fried chicken while I got the Blue Ribbon. I added cheese to my friend chickn sandwich and it was delicious. We also split the cheesy spatzle which was great. Got to try out some of the cookies too. It was pretty did think this spot is more of a weekday dinner spot as it’s in fidi. See how I styled my customized vintage tee below for this fashionplate.

Check out the latest fashionplate at Augustine in the gorgeous Beekman Hotel. I met a friend here for brunch on a blustery Sunday and it was still packed so we grabbed seats at the bar. The bartender was amazing and friendly and knowledgeable. We started with some bloodies and much needed coffee. Then we started with the cheese souffle, all I can say is OMG. Amazing and decadent, I really wish more restaurants had cheese souffles on the menu. I then ordered a Girl in the Park which was a great cocktail I got Avocado and crab salad and my friend got the steak frites which I definitely ate some of. Everything was amazing and it was a great lesuirely Sunday afternoon well spent. There are so many interesting regulars that come here, dress to impress definitely a fun spot, I’ll be back. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate keeps us warm during brunch with our Lana jogger pants at Shay & Ivy in my hood. One a cold Saturday I was meeting my family for brunch and decided to pick someplace close to home. I bundled up even though it was a quick walk. My cousin and me got there before my parents, so we ordered some coffee and avocado toast and caught up while we waited. The avocado toast was super yummy and had pomegranate seeds on top. When my parents showed up I needed a bloody mary which was good. I got the burger which was great and I also loved the fries, crispy and thick. I also sampled the chicken panini which was good and the virgina benedict which was really good and made on a biscuit instead. We had a great time catching up. It was pretty empty but hopefully as it gets warmer , more people will come for the outdoor concert. See all the deets for this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate features our Rita hoodie dress in black at Boucherie. This fashionplate was a sister brunch date. We had spend the late morning taking a practical herbalism class at Alchemist Kitchen and then shopping at some of the little stores down there. We were famished and I had made a ressie at Boucherie in advance. We got there and were seated promptly but unfortunately that’s when the good service ended. We ordered iced coffees and waters and a blue cheese and duck breast to start. Our little app came out before our beverages which were forgotten. The meat cheese were delish. We then decided to split the croque monsieur and the burger. We waited very long for our entrees to come out. A waitress at one point thought we were done eating. The food finally came and both items were delicious. The fries were great too. We both really enjoyed the food here, however it pains me to say the service left a lot to be desired here.
Now on to the fashion part, it’s weekend brunch so come cozy and casual, although some older couples were more dressed up. There are so many great french bistros in the city so due to the service we probably won’t be back. See all the ootd deets here below.
This week’s fashionplate takes place at Speedy Romeo’s in LES and rocked our Taylor buffalo check flannel shirt. I met a gf here for brunch on a surprisingly warm weekend. Of course we started with Bloody Mary’s, mine extra spicy. We then decided to split two things so we could try a pizza and something else. We got the Ritz pizza, which features taylor ham, an egg, plenty of cheese and tabasco, we all know I love my hot sauce. This was delish. We also got the baked eggs that had a delish tomato sauce and lots of cheese plus crusty butter bread to dip. Both of these dishes were yummy and we left brunch having to call our asses an uber. Fatgirls fo life. There weren’t a ton of people here but we had a late brunch for a non party brunch around 2:30 or so. See how I styled our Taylor shirt for this fashionplate below.
The latest fashionplate takes place at Sons and Daughters a fun spot in Meatpacking under the Highline. Went for brunch with a friend to catch up recently and thought our Taylor buffalo plaid flannel tunic was the perfect in between layer for the finicky fall weather. We opted for the aycd option for brunch as if you have 2 drinks you might as well. I started with their version of a bloody which was tasty although I only really can have one or two bloodies. I then switched to the hooked on a feeling which my friend got which was quite good. I got the SD burger which was tasty and the fries were crispy and good too. My friend got the veggie frittata which was also yummy. There were mostly couples and some brunch dates, mostly young trendy peeps. I will definitely be back for happy hour or dinner. Check out how I styled this fashionplate below.

Another fun show and brunch with the fam for this fashionplate. La Pecora Bianca is a bright and airy Italian cafe. We decided to check it out for a late Sunday brunch. We started off with the trio of toasts which were amazing. We also got the farro salad which was very good. Everyone loved their entrees-the eggs benedict, the veggie lasagna the french toast and the ricotta whole wheat pancake were all very good. I stole my sister’s specialty coffee drink which is pictured and was amazing. They were out of most of the bread basket which was kind of a bummer but all in all it was a nice brunch. Service was a little slow but it was busy. Definitely would have breakfast meetings here earlier in the am. See how I styled this new hoodie dress for this fashionplate below:
One of my favorite weekend activities has to be a leisurely brunch with my girls, all the more better when it’s aycd. So I knew I had to get down to the East Village/Alphabet City asap for a fun girly catch up brunch at Pardon My French for a fashionplate. I was the first to arrive somehow and the waiters couldn’t be sweeter and sat me at a table anyway and made sure the bloodies kept coming which were delish. They also have a cute outdoor garden. I decided to wear our new Sophia cami and make it a little fun and daytime approbs. Some of the girls got mimosas instead of bloodies which they liked as well and my one friend got straight champagne since she’s allergic to citrus. I got the Croque Monsiuer and 2 of my friends got the croque madame which we all loved, so delish. A friend also got the baked eggs which she seemed to like and one friend got the eggs Benedict.
Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. The crowd was very downtown hipster save for one couple with a baby. Everyone was mostly well dressed, festival fashion or all black everything. The waiters were very french, sweet and attractive. Definitely a spot to check out. Check out the full OOTD deets below.
