food centric friday

i always read the ny times dining and wine section...after all, food is my favorite part about living in nyc. the best bit is the weekly restaurant review because i have a mental list of places that i'm trying to tick off...and a little guidance never hurt.

this past week i found the worst restaurant review i've read in a while. frank bruni reviewed the very trendy restaurant ago *pronounced pretentious* and the article went from zero to vicious and biting pretty quickly.

i hope you love it as much as i did.

i needed a dress for a wedding

and this is the dress i won on ebay. it fits me perfectly and looks stunning with some 40s inspired pale yellow leather platform, peeptoe, maryjanes *did you get all that?* that i bought on a whim when i found them on the sale rack at DSW. hopefully i'll get an outfit picture of this one.

random blog tuesday

i found bottom half nude through another cool site i read occasionally so i figured it couldn't be that bad...and i was totally wrong. it is great. it seems to just be entertaining blather from intelligent people with no real purpose...but i love it.

from the about section on the blog:

"Dear God, what have we done.

Semi clothed and sitting in a row in a large light filled space, Mary Pearls, Marty George and Benjita the Creaker became compelled to impart, well, what would otherwise simply go bandied around the workplace and perhaps slip through the nibble fingers of those who might also like to enjoy some of this nonsense. It’s just another blog, sure, nuts and natter and the like, but rather than just telling it to ourselves, we thought maybe you might like to take a peak too. Hold tight…"

check it out to waste some time and get fun things to email your bored friends.

project catwalk

since i don't have cable tv, i rely solely on the internet to provide my entertainment when i want to veg out on the couch at home. i recently discovered the british version of project runway *called project catwalk* and fell in love.

i've read about many project runway fanatics that are disappointed by the show, but give me cute guys with a gorgeous accent and i'll watch almost anything *sad but true*.

so...the show...

these are the contestants:
with host, kelly osbourne:
and these are my favorite contestants:

*not surprisingly all cute men with cute accents!* from left to right: tom is a menswear designer who brings a sporty influence to everything he does. clinton won south african designer of the year in 1998 and hasn't seemed to make a name for himself after he moved to london...he is incredibly talented. and my favorite is ross. he is adorable up and down...and his fashion sense is totally cutting edge. see:
and now...some of my favorite outfits from the show:
the clothes had a decidedly british influence as did the show itself. honestly, it felt more like project catwalk was more about the designers themselves than it was about the clothes they designed. and what kept me in the show was ross...see more cute pictures below.

if you are interested in watching the show, you can find it on surf the channel. while the quality isn't stellar, it works if you are an addict like me. enjoy!
