fashion - beauty - foodie

short list

1. gunbar - you now no longer have to choose between meatpacking and the LES.

2. LC’s new dip-dyed rainbow tips - a total homage to 80’s cartoon lady lovely locks.

3. redhook lobster - the best lobster roll i’ve had in new york to date (and i’ve had quite a few). the nytimes has equally glowing things to say. track them down at Lot 30 on a hot summer night.

4. british dance pop phenom ellie goulding is coming to america. her title track "lights" is totally addicting.

5. diane kruger in brian atwood’s felini pumps (courtesy of whowhatwear). this girl kills it every time.

PISMO BEACH DISASTER

SCENE XXXVI

CHER V.O.

Later, while we were learning about the Pismo Beach diaster, I decided I needed a complete make-over, except this time I’d make-over my soul. But what makes someone a better person? And then I realised, all my friends were really good in different ways. Like, Christian, he always wants things to be beautiful and interesting. Or Dionne and Murray, when they think no one is watching, are so considerate of each other. And poor Miss Giest, always trying to get us involved, no matter how much we resist?

strawberry rhubarb

this post instantly reminded me of how delicious the warm strawberry rhubarb crisp was at gjelina in venice beach. my absolute favorite dessert, and i loved the individual-sized cast iron baking dish.

gelato al limone

it is tradition, on our annual summer trip to italy, to consume gelato at every available opportunity. lemon is one of my favorite flavors and it is nearly impossible to find here, so my mom and I recently set out to make our own.

this was a simple, but looong process with quite a bit of stirring and waiting - so set the expectation that you won’t be eating gelato for about seven hours after you start. it wouldn’t be a bad idea to double the base and make two flavors while you’re at it.

step one: make the base…

- 2 cups of whole milk

- 1 cup of heavy cream

- 4 large egg yolks

- 2/3 cup sugar

first, combine milk and cream in a saucepan over medium low heat, stir constantly (don’t let a skin form) and bring to 170 degrees F.

grey street

i am the imelda marcos of grey sweaters. i cannot stop buying them. i have multiples in every iteration - grandfather, shawl color, cotton, cashmere, marled, heathered, cropped, oversized, button down, dark grey, light grey,  the list goes on. and yet anytime i walk in to a store, this is the first thing i gravitate towards. i have made a promise to myself to never buy another grey sweater again, ever!

except for this one.

ok, from the front - it looks just like five other ones I own… but!

behold… the back is all super stealth and sexy! and now i have to have it. only alexander wang could re-imagine this classic (and ok fine, rather boring) article into this chic, french, gamine, outfit definer.

hair apparent

the start of spring, for me, always brings the itch for a new look - specifically, a new hairstyle. i long to sit in my stylist’s chair and request something other than “the same thing as last time, just a trim!” but time and time again, that is what i insist upon.

perhaps the least drastic (and thus, most appealing) of cuts is the long bob or “lob” that continues to be all the rage in hollywood - jennifer aniston being the latest to grace the gossip blogs for chopping it off. i’m a fan in general - but, i think the problem with this cut is that it can border on looking a bit mom-ish, and i fear that i would run out of ways to style it, and hate every second of the growing-out period. (bangs 2009 - nightmare!)

so, you can imagine my delight upon discovering tibi’s new spring ad campaign, starring olivia palermo. the clothes are great, obviously, but palermo’s hair is the true standout in this collection. pictured are four of my favorite very-wearable, very-modern ways to rock this shoulder sweeping cut: side parted and textured, sleek and glam, pulled-back and refined, and soft and romantic with a deep side part.

i am totally envious! now, can i work up the courage to take the plunge?
