Magic Stripes

June 29, 2011

Top – Hallelu, Skirt – H&M, Necklace – Forever 21, Bracelet -vintage, Bag – Hobo International, Shoes – Steven Madden via Shop It To Me

When in doubt, always wear stripes. A motto to live by for sure. The thicker the better I think. My Hallelu striped top is my new love. And I love that it strays from the norm with beige rather than navy or blue. A touch more feminine I feel. This is what I wore to happy hour with my dear Philly friends Bonnie and Kim one super humid day not too long ago. We stopped by this historic street to snap our outfit pictures (Philly has the most beautiful streets in the world I swear) before heading off to chow down on pizza while we watched a few Sex and the City episodes on DVD. Hot summer nights are bliss (though also a little sweaty). Oh, and finally you get a better look at my new Hobo International San Fransisco bag. It carries everything and anything and it is essential. And what do you think about this lip color? I tried on Kim’s fiery orange Revlon lipstick in Siren. Now I need to get this color for myself . . . it is so much fun!

101 Dots

Top – YesStyle, Shorts – Forever 21, Shoes – Steve Madden via Shop It To Me, Bag – Hobo International

Weekend wear made interesting with pretty pastels and all over polka dots. You see . . . dressing in the heat isn’t all that bad. Not sure whether or not there really is 101 dots on this top, but it’s nice to now that there possibly might be. And this San Fransisco bag by Hobo International is my new love. You’ll have a better view of it on the blog soon my dears.


I Love Food

June 27, 2011
I thought it would be fun to change things up every once in a while on the blog and start featuring one of my favorite things in the world . . . FOOD! And it makes total and complete sense to do so now that I am living in such a “foodie” city. There are amazing places to eat at every corner here in Philadelphia, and I have yet to try them all. One of my favorite restaurants here in Philly is Penang (117 N 10th St.) which is right in the heart of Chinatown. I actually visited the real Penang last spring. This island state of Malaysia is known for its spicy and eclectic food offerings. Malaysian food is one of my favorite types of foods, so when I first found this place I was basically in heaven. Nothing compares to the real thing, but this place gets pretty darn close. I love taking my friends here so they can get a taste of something exotic and fun! The Roti Canai (crispy pancake with curry dip) as a starter is a must, the Chow Kueh Teow (famous Malaysia stir fry noodle) is superb, and the Penang Kari Ayam (lemongrass chicken curry) is the perfect Malaysia curry I gotta say! Eating here always brings back memories of my favorite South East Asian country!

City Strolls

June 22, 2011
Top – vintage from CALICO, Jacket – True Religion, Shorts – Zara, Shoes – Salvatore Ferragamo

The weather here in Philly is super bipolar and funny. Humid, then rainy, then cool, then dry. And a lot of the times it changes during the course of just a day. This can be a problem when getting dressed in the morning, for what feels comfortable earlier in the day most definitely doesn’t work for the weather later on. But hey, I’ll deal with it. Had an amazing past weekend hanging out with new friends and checking out the local scenes here in Philly 🙂 I think I’m starting to figure out my so-called city haunts from Chinatown to Old City to the infamous South Street. There’s always something to do here in Philly.
