bring back the knitted sweaters.

Hits: T by Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Isabel Marant
Misses: Miu Miu, Celine
Meh: Acne

Here's a late review of the fall 2011, ready-to-wear collections. (Rather than looking at Spring '12, I rather look at some weather appropriate pieces to inspire me for the chilly season.) I've been caught up on loads of school work and volunteering opportunities. Thank God for Rosh Hashanah and its four day weekend. It's time to critic, admire, and lust for these outfits!

a toast to toast

the elvis

Give me a choice between a few slices of bacon and a chunk of a baguette, smeared with strawberry jam and pat of butter, and I'll choose the latter. While some people take pleasure in eating ginormous hamburgers sandwiched in between deep fried bacon grilled cheese (ie. these guys), I prefer simpler alternatives. Bread. Toast. Pasta. With butter. With jam. With olive oil and garlic.

So basically, I love carbs. Its pure comfort food to me. When I feel stressed out, overwhelmed, or hungry, I reach for it. Its a problem, yes. But I'm working on it!

Today, in particular, I wasn't having s great day. When I got home, I was hungry and needed something to fuel me up quickly because I had a volleyball game in two hours. I was in no mood to wash a ton of dishes and pans. I glanced toward my counter and saw a glass Pyrex filled with bread slices. (Specifically, bread that my momma made the night before and cut this morning to make me my lunch.) I toasted a slice right up and decided to see how many different kinds of open faced sandwiches/ toasts I could make. I made three.

another brick in the wall

Oh how I love a good brick wall! It brings a rustic sense to any room. It is best to keep its scarlet, vibrant shade. However, an all white room can be benefitted with a white washed brick wall. It brings texture but at the same time, clarity. When a brick wall is paired with a muted wall color, it is just simple elegance.
