sunday, november 22nd '09

had a very nice sunday - woke up to giada de laurentiis and alex guarnaschelli on the food network followed by gordon ramsay's kitchen nightmares and mary portas's "mary queen of shops" on bbc america; forgot it was the philadelphia marathon but managed to run my full route anyway, with a few detours; found a patisserie that was actually open on sundays and went later in the day when all pastries were half price!; started my christmas shopping and found some great things for my friend and my sister; went food shopping and cooked myself a fatty (i.e., authentic) carbonara; loaded my iPod with a few new songs; did some research for work. if only i was this efficient every sunday!


my outfit looked completely different by the time i walked out the door, after all the layers i piled on...

Outfit Details


  1. i like how you pull off the lace arm warmers. i love how they look on chanel, but i dont think i could pull them off, id end up looking madonna circa like a virgin.

    love all the layering. and i find gordon ramsay attractive for some crazy reason!

  2. You manage to make just a few simple pieces look so chic, yet like you're not trying hard either.

  3. I love how you're posting more often!! I love love love your style!!!

  4. love those hyper-productive weekends. i think the layering looks great. of course, the pre-layered look does also, but you look WARM.

    i also appreciate the more frequent posts. very inspiring. :-)

  5. You always have the best sweaters and long sleeve tops, no matter how simple they are they hang on your body so nicely!!

    I miss Everyday Italian. I think Giada's new show is total shit.

  6. love the outfit even more with all the layers piled on. Fantastic boots!!

  7. yes, yes, love love all the layering in monochrome! and agree on -h's comment on lace gloves, xx
