My First Styling Gig!!

Very excited about my very first styling gig for the awesome guys who own the Korilla food truck in NYC.
(You may also recognize them from the Food Network’s New Food Truck Race)

They were chosen as one of Stylecaster’s 50 most fashionable New Yorkers. (well, duh, of course they are)
and they gave me a little shout-out in the article! thanks for calling me your go-to stylist!

Argentine Accesories

I got an awesome accent piece while I was at a craft fair in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires last week.
It’s a piece of glass with pigment blown in, according to the maker.

As you can probably tell, I’m obsessed with tangerine orange this season.
Zoya’s Paz color is currently my favorite. alongside the teal in this glass ring, this is my favorite color combo.

Argentine Eating

Argentina is all about the steak.

I ate at the 2 most revered-by-tourists steak restaurants in Buenos Aires – Las Lilas and La Cabrera.
I also ate at a steak place that locals love as a special occassion spot – La Brigada.

A few observations:
– the meat in argentina is amazing. so much flavor in the good cuts, without any marinade or sauce. rib eye and sirloin were superb. well marbled and perfectly cooked in their gigantic grills.
– you dont need to eat at all the steakhouses in argentina unless you really love steak that much. they are not THAT different. Las Lilas remains my favorite
– The sweetbreads at La Brigada were among the best i’ve ever had. we had veal sweetbreads – they bigger than Ive seen in america. Just the right amount of gamey and juicy at the same time
– a sprinkle of coarse Argentinian salt was a nice touch

But the shocker for me was that there was some amazing italian food in Argentina (I suppose this makes sense considering the large Italian contingent there. There are even very italian neighborhoods such as San Telmo)

I LOVED Caseros in San Telmo. People stared at us as we walked in because I dont think they see very many Asians. I always take this as a good sign because it means it’s a local joint.

Their seafood tagliatelle is worth a mention as are their grilled vegetables with poached egg. speaking of which, produce tastes so good in south america!

Argentinian Fashion

Spent the last 10 days in South America.
It was lovely to be on vacation… and even more lovely to be able to buy Argentinian leather at warehouse prices!!

New ostrich heels. love the peeptoe.
ostrich is SO hot right now… (well actually, always)

and my toes are polished with zoya’s neon orange shade.

now its back to reality. poop.

Tiki Barber is… Boo?

I didn’t know much about Tiki Barber when I ran into him at the Walter presentation on the rooftop of the Empire Hotel, other than that he was a NY Giant and that he was obviously a fashionisto.

reaction from sports reporter:
“BOOOO Tiki Barber!”
“at least he wears Zegna?”
“ugh, you are such a fashion reporter.”
