The Only 5 Wardrobe Essentials You Need

  I asked my dear friend and also roommate to take LinkedIn headshots for me one day because as a college student, that's something we do. However, the photoshoot turned into some cool pics I thought I'd share here. I couldn't get myself to put on a suit or even just a blazer on for the photos--apparently I only allow myself to wear suits or blazers ironically. My outfit was simple yet showcased my style in what I consider to be basics. Sneakers. Jeans. White t-shirt. Leather jacket. "B" necklace. That's all. ...

Food & Fashion Soup Dumplings and The Puffy Shirt

  One day recently I came across a NYC Dumpling Map on the internet. Since then, I had been craving soup dumplings, which I have never had. So I dragged a couple friends to Chinatown this weekend to embark on what would be a dumpling adventure at Noodle Village. We all had soup dumplings in the back of our mind, but we ordered a bit of a variety to fully immerse ourselves in the experience. Chicken fried rice (possibly the BEST fried rice I have ever consumed), not-one-not-two-but-THREE orders of Steamed Shanghai Soup ...

Prince Coffee House Bronx, New York

Take a stroll down Arthur Ave. in the Bronx and you'll come across a few things. Italian restaurants, some grocery markets, a few bars; all seething with an Italian and Albanian influence. But keep walking! On the corner of Arthur Ave. and Crescent (right before 183rd), glass windows enclose Prince Coffee House. Upon walking in, you are greeted by copper Turkish coffee pots hanging from the ceiling. It is a specialty of the shop and a personal favorite. Turkish coffee is finely ground beans brewed directly in those copper pots on ...

Tweed in San Francisco ft. the O bag

blazer turtleneck pantsshoesbag I've been back home for a couple weeks now and while I expected to come home to sunshine in the Golden State, I was greeted with cold winds and lots of rain. My New York wardrobe has enabled me to dress for the cold at home that I am unaccustomed to. While the rain held off this particular day, I channeled all my energies into warmth on this day. I established warmth mostly in the colors: lots of browns in the tweed coat and penny loafers and a warm-toned grey turtleneck ...

Food & Fashion  Ruby’s Café and a Red Lip

My roommate and I recently headed to Ruby's Café for lunch and then stopped at the New York Public Library. At the first aforementioned location, I ordered an ah-mazing salad with a soft boiled egg on top which is truly the perfect addition to any meal. My roommate got a burger that also had an egg on it and it was also delightful. I highly recommend Ruby's burgers, I've even taken my mom here so they are mom-approved burgers. At our next stop, we were only served with books and lengthy ...

A Wool Coat in the Winter ft. Sightglass Coffee

Returning home for Thanksgiving after three months away, I felt the obligation to explore parts of San Francisco I may have forgotten about as well as return to some old favorites. This post chronicles exactly that. Our first stop was the latter, an old favorite. Sightglass Coffee, located on 7th St in SoMa, serves our favorite Neighborhood Bakehouse pastries and an amazing cup of coffee (or espresso con panna which is what I opted for). My mom and dad both ordered cappuccinos, which were also delicious. Please also note the hats ...
