A Blog Is Born

I obsesses about the following: music, history and fashion.  I have a fourth love: food.  The thought of a thick Arrabbiata sauce, a slice of raw or cooked salmon or the bitter taste of dark chocolate makes me wanna sing like Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music (another obsession btw).  It's safe to say that I eat home cooked meals during the week and dine out every weekend in the search of that perfect meal of whatever my tummy desires at the moment.  It's also a fact that I photograph my eating experiences and engross in deep conversations about ingredients and preparation with friends and family that adore food as well.  For some people dining is something that you do, but for me dining is an event!  For this reason I am starting a food blog!  I have the material, but the name I am still unsure about.  In the meantime, here are some of my photographs of some of that delicious food I've savored and loved...

Current Musings

These are a few of the looks that will inspire me this chilly season...

Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 ready-to-wear

L.A.M.B. Fall 2010 ready-to-wear

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 ready-to-wear

Blumarine Fall 2010 ready-to-wear

Oh what to wear on these fall/winter days? Personally I adore piling on the faux furs, which totally reminds me that I have a faux fur Russian style hat from H&M that I purchased a few years ago.  I must fish that out of my closet.  Thick tights are also a necessity in this treacherous weather (Alaska and New England people this is the part where you laugh because California doesn't have icy cold weather compared to what you must be accustomed to.) The tights + ankle sock combo has never been attempted in my part so this could just be the year I try this.  I'm still on a prostitute high platform vibe so I think I'll be wearing my tall Dollhouse leather boots on a heavy rotation as well.  

Thank you Saint Selena for the wonderful site that is for the plethora of photos
