Take Me Out to the Ball Game: Yankees x Red Sox Edition

“I decided to wear sneakers, something blue, and denim for the occasion.”

“Yeah but you’re not wearing denim pants nor Yankee blue. Also, you’re wearing black Converse. This doesn’t count.”

Prettttty close if you ask me. Jeter would approve. Ok, probably not.

From the Archives: Gaultier at the Brooklyn Museum, Buffalo Exchange, & White Manna burgers!

I cannot believe I almost forgot to share photos from the Gaultier Exhibit! Not that it really matters at this point because I’m sure everyone’s seen and heard about it on social media (especially the holographic faces on the mannequins). It was really great to see the clothes in person – I honestly didn’t realize Gaultier’s scope and influence on pop culture, directly or arbitrarily. Anyway, Le Boyfriend bought tickets for Valentine’s Day weekend but because of the head injury I got from The Great Fall of February, we had to wait until the next weekend to venture out to Brooklyn for the exhibit. Scroll below for some pics of my faves.

All The Way, John Cusack, & Cheese Porn.

I forgot to tell you guys how awesome The Grand Budapest Hotel was. I enjoyed it so much, I’m probably going to go watch it again.

In other news, I’m going to see All The Way tonight. Hope Bryan Cranston doesn’t disappoint as LBJ even though my knowledge about the former president is pretty comparable to what I know about professional football. (Elementary at best). Still, if the pace is as riveting as House of Cards, I won’t mind a refresher course in American History.

In other other news, I was wearing this outfit last week when I was out having drinks at The Ace Hotel. In the lobby on my way out, I accidentally dropped my stuff on the floor. As I was huffing and puffing while picking up my stuff, I glaced up to see John Cusack staring at me. Oh, New York. Your sense of humor kills me. Continue reading

The Grand Budapest Hotel & Tortaria

New York is doing this really cute thing where it’s super nice and springy one day and then being in an arctic chill the next. My wardrobe is confused and so am I.

If we’re friends on social media, you’ll know that I’ve been mentioning it all week but I’m so so SO excited to see The Grand Budapest Hotel tonight! I’m a huge Wes Anderson fan; he’s one of my favorite film makers (because of his AMAZING film sets/props/costumes, the color schemes, and his awesome camera angles). Can you imagine being a part of any of his productions? UGH I’d love to live in one of his movies. Maybe I’ll have a Wes Anderson-themed party instead. If you’re not familiar, here’s a really cool video! (Although it hardly does his work justice.)

I’m seeing it at Union Square but not until after dinner at Tortaria – another one of my faves! Their tacquitos & grilled corn? YUM.

I’m just hoping that nothing bad happens – the last time I went on a dinner+movie date, I slipped, lost my memory for about half an hour and got rushed to the emergency room. Best date ever! Crossing my fingers that my brain is intact by the time I get home because I’m pretty sure that Budapest Hotel is something I’m going to want to remember.
