Miu Miu is taking over the world with their sparrow print (this trend has legs!)....and my closet. This is my ode to the bird craze. I see a DIY project looming with the jean cuffs. I recently tore out a blurb about Miu Miu producing sunglasses with the print in this month's InStyle, but I couldn't find them anywhere for purchase. Tears. If you see them out in the retail world, report back.
My grandparents. Complete opposites as people but combined they were farmers, academics, horse breeders, artists, and antique collectors. Explains a lot about all my hobbies and eccentricities. They are so vital, youthful, and stylish in these photos. I love to think of them this way and I love these vintage pictures.
My adventure to Brimfield this year yielded shockingly few items. I was initially a little morose that I didn't come away with more for all my efforts (like that vintage map of Paris, which was clearly too large for any of the walls in my tiny walk up), but a little time and reflection leave me very satisfied with my new French themed platter, perfect for Bastille day.
I put that find into immediate action for a serving of assorted frommage, some blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in prosciutto, both consumed with a deliciously crisp French white wine (Joseph Drouhin Chablis 1er cru Secher, about $30/bottle). What a nice first round of food to graze on pre-dinner...because obviously I made dinner on top of all this.
The dates are shamelessly easy for such a gorgeous and tasty product (a sweet and savory variation on the Giada DeLaurentiis recipe here).
Also worth noting, O Ya is definitely one of the best dining experiences to be had in Boston. The location is surprising, hidden within the leather district, but the secrecy makes it all the more intimate. The service was over the top helpful (special thanks to Michael for all his recommendations and delightful conversation). And the food, oh my goodness the food. There is clearly a reason it was rated the top new restaurant in the US (by the Times, click here for article) when it opened. Nothing short of sushi nirvana. Go. Now. Repeat.
