The latest fashionplate features our Katy leopard print chiffon blouse at the longest bar in NYC- Oscar Wilde. Met a girlfriend here for cocktails and apps after work one day. The bar and all the tables were crowded but I was lucky enough to snag two seats at the second bar. We tried a few cocktails, my favorite being the Smoked Old Fashion. We also split the bangers in a blanket and the buffalo cauliflower both which were indulgent bar eats. We liked this place and the crowds started to die down a bit after 8pm. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
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.

This week’s fashionplate features our Brigitte self tie halter at Public Kitchen. My bestie who became a wifey and moved to Connecticut was visiting and we decided to spend the night down in LES like we used to 5 years ago and go bar hopping. We decided to start off at Public Hotel to have civilized drinks and fortify our stomachs for a long night of drinking. We sat at the bar as it was the weekend and ordered some wine. We split the tuna tartare which was delish and we also split margarita pizza which was also good. We enjoyed the scene, went upstairs and that off into the night. See how we 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 the latest fashionplate featuring our Natalie blouse at Fatbird. Met a sorority sister from college here for a catch up dinner because we both moved fatty food and cute little spots. I got here first and was pleasantly informed that they had happy hour specials going on still. Score. Buy one get one free drinks and half off apps and sides. I went with one of the specialty cocktails which while adorable are too sweet for my taste. We also got the mac and cheese and pork belly to start. Both were fab. We then got half a bird nashville hot style and switched to wine. For sides we got the collard greens and the cheddar waffle. We loved the nashville hot chicken so yummy but the sides were a meh. However the biscuits the chicken came with were amazing. Come for mac, and apps and chicken. Skip the overly sweet drinks and lackluster sides. The service is great and the play great music plus it’s not too crowded on a weekday night. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
Check out the latest fashionplate featuring our customized repurposed Pink Floyd vintage tee at Seamore’s in Chelsea. Met the girlies here for a weekday catchup dinner on one of those in between summer days. I love the original Nolita location so was stoked when they opened a location in my hood. It took a while to get a table so we got some wine in the cute downstairs speakeasy. Once we were seated we ordered more wine and split the mac and cheese which was yummy. Then I got the seared fish burrito which was good and came with a great kale salad. One of my friends got the veggie version of this. My last gf got the seared scallops special which looked delish. All in all it was yummy dinner and I’ll be back. Tip make a res or come early. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
This week’s fashionplate features our navy polka dot maxi skirt at Aroqa in Chelsea. I love the simplicity of the our chiffon side slit maxi skirt on a hot summer day so thought it was perfect to meet a friend to catch up over drinks. Aroqa looked cute and is an Indian fusion spot in the hood. It was pretty empty on Thursday evening and we sat at the bar. Their specialty cocktails are amazing. I had one with dry ice and then opted for another one for my second cocktail. My friend also enjoyed her cocktails as well. I will be back to try food. Check out how I styled this fashionplate below.
Check out the latest fashionplate featuring our Goldie bodysuit at Motel Morris. I have been trying to check out more local places in the hood lately and have been wanting to eat at Motel Morris for a while. We ended up grabbing seats at the bar as the place was pretty jammed for a Tuesday night. We started with some wine and decided to split a bunch of things. The pimento cheese deviled eggs were delish and had a bit of spice added to them. We also had to get the fries which were great. The potato and cheddar pierogies were also yummy and had lobster and mushrooms with it. We were in between getting the burger and the skirt steak and ended up with the skirt steak. It had a gruyere fondue which was absolutely delish. I loved the cute decor of the place and the bathrooms totally reminded me of LA, kitschy and cute and pink. 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.
Check out this week’s fashionplate featuring our white eyelet shorts at the new midtown location of Mad Dog & Beans. I love mexican and I love the downtown location of this spot for happy hour. Sat at the bar and ordered there delish margs and the nachos. I love that their nachos because each chip has beans and lots of cheese on it, so good I kind of want more as I’m writing this. Our bartender Chrissy was so sweet and nice. She was the only one working that day and it was quite busy but she always had a smile. There are a lot of suits here so I was dressed a little too trendy but see how I styled this fashionplate below.
Check out the latest fashionplate at Empire Diner featuring our knit Farrah romper. Empire Diner has been around forever but has constantly changed owners. Now it is owned by the Cafeteria Group so naturally loving their mac and cheese I needed to check out for brunch with the boy. It was sticky humid day so I opted for our Farrah knit romper with crochet back for this fashionplate. We were seated immediately. They were out of the green juice so instead I got a red juice which was still good and detoxifying. He got the smoothie which wasn’t sweet enough for him. The burger looked sick on instagram, I know I’m millennial, shoot me. However it wasn’t very seasoned, I really wanted it to be amazeballs. The fries were solid though. He got the omelette which was just meh for him. Our service was a bit slow too. There were mostly couples and some groups of girls and families. See how I styled this fashionplate below:
This week’s fashionplate features our Jacqueline striped kimono at one of my fav mini chains Mexicue. Went here for lunch and sat at the bar and I had to order the Spiked Palmero which is delish, bourbon spiked iced tea with limeade so good. I love their queso so I had to get there, fab as always. Their menu has changed to smaller portions which I kind of dig. I got the spicy brisket enchilada which was cheesy and spicy right up my ally. I was dressed a little risque for the lunch crowd but it was hot out so whatevs. I’ll definitely be back for their happy hour. See how rocked this fashionplate below. Shout out to the friendly bartender Mario!
The latest fashionplate features our Chambray shirtdress at Gallo de Oro. Got some margs and Mexican here after a day of sourcing, an early dinner of sorts. We ended up eating outside. Of course I had to get a margarita and it was happy hour, so cheap and strong. We started with some queso which was bit too liquidy for my taste but I ate it anyway because I don’t let cheese go to waste. We got the chicken quesadillas which needed more cheese. The chorzio tacos were the best thing we got. This place wasn’t very crowded so maybe my fault for going here. This place was meh, so many other mexican places have better food than here plus outdoor seating. See how I styled my fashionplate below.
Check out this week’s fashionplate featuring our black and white cross print Goldie bodysuit at Massoni at the Arlo Hotel Nomad. Met some girlfriends here on a Thursday evening for a wine, pizza and gossip catch up sess. We started at the bar with white wine and rose and then moved to a cozy banquette to eat. We started with the burrata which was creamy and yummy. We then split two pizzas- mushroom and the spicy sausage. We enjoyed both the mushroom pie was cheesy and creamy. The spicy sausage was pretty spicy and the ranch on the side helped to cool things down. It wasn’t crazy full for a Thursday evening but due to the nice weather a lot of people were probably at the new rooftop bar upstairs. 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.

Checkout this week’s fashionplate featuring our Goldie black and white cross print bodysuit at Chelsea Bell. Met a girlfriend here for a catch up lunch. It was pretty empty but we still ended up sitting at the bar. Started with some rose because hey it’s spring/almost summer. We decided to split the buffalo chicken flatbread and the grilled cheese but got fries instead of the soup since we were sharing. We loved the buffalo chicken flatbread. It was just the perfect amount of spiciness and cheese and chicken ratio. We also liked the grilled cheese and fries which were also yummy. See how I styled this fashionplate below.
Checkout the latest fashionplate featuring our Ellie bodysuit at the cutest little pink restaurant Pietro Nolita. Layer are the way to go in this unpredictable spring weather. I have been wanting to check out this spot for a while so one Saturday afternoon me and a girl friend decided to finally check out this spot. We made a plan to meet there at 5:45 since they don’t take reservations. We got there and there were no two person tables available so we got cocktails at the bar. I got the Nolarita which was very good. Once we were seated we ordered the carta da musica which was flatbread with cheese and herbs so good, I wanted another one.I got the spagetto al pomodoro with extra cheese, a good classic and my friend got farfelle al funghi which she really enjoyed. Now on to the fashion part of this fashionplate. I refrained from pink overkill, although there were some people rocking the all pink everything look. There were mostly girl groups and gay guys although there were a few brave boyfriends who were here with their girlfriends. Dress to impress or go off duty model chic cool here. See all the fashionplate ootd deets here.
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.
