throwback thursday

In honor of #tbt, I will share a few pictures from weeks ago when we were at the Crosby Street Hotel grabbing a drink- though we actually spent most of the time admiring the eclectic decor. It is probably one of the best decorated hotels/spaces in NYC! Aside from the huge alphabet head that is much instagrammed, the lobby had these comics dogs that we thought were really cool. You can’t miss the lighting structure in the restaurant/bar. And the colorful couches and dreamy outdoor area – we are just waiting for some sunshine to get out there! The cocktails were delicious, too!


A week ago I went to All’onda for some ‘Japanese Venitian fusion’, and it was pretty good/ok. I ordered the kabocha squash side and the cavatelli. The squash was a little on the sweeter side from the raisins but it complemented the saucy, cheesy pasta.  Although, it might have been a little too saucy and cheesy… We shared the olive oil cake for dessert (which is the only thing I didn’t like). 

Aside from the food talk, I loved the upstairs seating area. The ambiance is great. I also really wanted these striped napkins. The side squash. Where can I get this dish?And the saucy, cheesy pasta. Now I’m hungry. 

Annie Leibovitz: Pilgrimage

Annie Leibovitz Pilgrimage was an exhibit at the New York Historical Society. I went for obvious reasons… because it was an exhibit honoring Annie’s photographs and well, I’m obsessed with her photographs. In theory, I imagined it to be glamorous, just like her LV Series 2 campaign. Hello Freja Beha. Those are the photos that I can get behind!


This exhibit? It was slightly disappointing. No celebrities, no fashion, no glamour. Just lots of historic sites and artifacts. Yes, she is an amazing photographer. Turns out I only care when it is fashion related. Sorry.IMG_9663 IMG_9664Read this review from the NY Times for more.
