Prada Spring 2011 Stripes

The Scene

During our fall trip to NYC, my mom and I met the baby girl I used to babysit when I was a teen and she was a tween.  She is now bicoastal (a dream) so we caught up with her for brunch at The Dutch. Had been hearing about the SoHo spot from fashionistas and foodies alike so I knew it'd be perfect for a girlie pig/gab fest.

The Food

Started with TDF biscuits slathered with butter and honey.

Shared the two fried eggs, hominy grits, chorizo and salsa verde. Muy delicious. Not as greasy as it sounds.

And finally the Eggs Okonomiyaki, a Japanese egg pancake with pork belly and shrimp. Finger-like bonito flakes move and curl on top, beckoning you to get your grub on. Crazy creepy and craaaaaaazy tasty. Never eaten anything like it. Highly recommend if you are the adventurous type.

The Commentary

Built the outfit around these sensible, stripey kitten heels.


Sadly after a few hours huffing around NYC even they weren't sensible enough. F to being an Angeleno without a car service. Had to change into super not fierce ballet flats.  Dowdy-ied up the cool striped skirt and poppy top combo.

Bought the skirt because it cost less than 20 bucks and approximated the Prada Spring stripes that I'm still loving.  Endless possibilities with this skirt. And love the thirty something appropriate length.


Love Spring 2011 so much that  on my last day in NYC I couldn't resist these stripey Prada sunnies from the same season at Century 21. Not the most flattering on my huge face but I don't care.

I fear I'm two pairs deep into a bonafide Prada sunglasses collection (read: obsession.)
