Thursday, October 23

date night


I wore this for JD's birthday dinner the week before last. We made the trek over to the East Village for casablanca tagine, mint tea, and puff pastries at Cafe Mogador, an old favorite that we don't get to nearly enough. The place has become somewhat of a scene since our last visit, crowded and trendy with a lengthy line outside. I can understand why though, the food is consistently delicious, even on Cinco de Mayo, my victory dinner the year I picked the Derby winner, when the place was completely ridiculous. 

The East Village has a distinct feel. Much like the salon I got my hair cut at on Tuesday, I'm just not cool enough to be there. You know what I mean. Inspired by that tough, cool girl look, I decided to go with all black everything; a loose top, faded denim, and leather accessories. I topped it off with my leather jacket (not shown) and kept my hair and jewelry simple. 

On another note, I can't believe it's Thursday already.
