happy sunday style!
i found loads of goodies while i was back in MA for thanksgiving, among them was this blue angora sweater. my mom had mentioned that it had been a couple years since she wore it and then i saw the proof…a dry cleaning tag from 2001. naturally, i swiped it. took those tags right off, along with it’s shoulder pads and wore it out to a dinner i had once i had returned to NYC. i paired it with some new backseam stockings, leopard wedges and a black american apparel scoop neck dress. to top it off, i wore my grandmothers cape. this is my favorite winter accessory. my nan was the best dresser and i have so many clothing & jewelry items from her that i am so happy to wear on a daily basis. 3 generations in one photo. beautiful.

happy tutorial tuesday! how to parallel park.
okay. i hate to brag, but i am damn good at parallel parking and everyone who gets in my car agrees with me. 99% of the time im in there on the first try. no turning around, no straightening out, im in. my ex-boyfriend taught me a couple years ago and after my first try i nailed it. parallel parking is a breeze if you follow these steps.
1. line up with the the car in front of the spot, mirror to mirror.
2.put the car in reverse, turning your wheel into the spot all the way.
3.look in your drivers side mirror. when you see BOTH OF THE HEADLIGHTS of the car behind you, turn the wheel all of the way away.
4. put the car in park. you just champed that spot.
this is the car i drive. its a perfect banger city car. it was given to me this past summer and has proven to be extremely convenient in getting here and there. woo hoo.
hello & happy monday munchies!
yesterday i took on a task i’ve wanted to take on for years…making my own sausage. i bought the sausage stuffing attachment to pair with my meat grinder a year ago and finally got around to scheduling something with my lovely lady friend, kasia.
now, if you want to read a great explanation of how to make sausage, read kasia’s sausage post here. sausaging is not a solo-job. you need a partner. sausage making compatibility will be a very important part of my decision to date boys in the future. (hah!)
experimenting is the most fun part, here’s what we put in ours:
1. Indian Sausage
Pork Shoulder rubbed with curry, masala, salt, crushed red pepper & rice vinegar
Diced Onion & Potato
2. Bacon, Egg & Cheese Sausage
Pork Shoulder rubbed with black pepper, salt, sriracha & apple cider vinegar
Diced XXX sharp Cheddar
3. Thanksgiving Sausage
Turkey Thighs rubbed with sage, thyme, nutmeg, salt, apple cider vinegar & the juice of 1 clementine
Diced Sweet Potatoes
Now, i had an idea a long time ago to make a thanksgiving sausage that incorporated corn bread into the mix…but on the outside. i made corn bread batter, and dipped a cooked thanksgiving sausage into the batter. we then fried the batter covered sausage in vegetable oil. game changer. it was like the best, craziest, most thankful hush puppy ever.
woo hoo! we did it and were going to be making this a yearly tradition. pop on some christmas songs and get stuffin’! happy holidays, everyone!
happy tutorial tuesday! how to: look like me!
voila! my oversized cateye glasses are now available for you to buy! they’re so fun and if you need glasses to see, bring these frames into your local lenscrafters and get your prescription lenses put right in! woo hoo!
happy sunday style! straight from soho.
my new boots seriously make me feel like a star on toddlers and tiaras, especially when worn with any of my full circle skirts. i look like an edgy 4 year old.
old navy polka dot tights, LAMB for lesportsac tote, vintage cowgirl boots, topshop leather jacket, diy red chiffon headscarf, found pashmina scarf.
happy fashion friday!
this past weekend i had the pleasure of styling the bakshi/gandhi project for MTV Desi. Jules Bakshi is an amazing modern dancer here in NYC and Kiran Gandhi is a badass drummer, currently on tour with MIA (and a full time student at harvard business school-i told you she was a badass). here are a couple shots from the day. the collaboration will be out on MTV Desi soon.
