when mary and i first started this blog we had discussed posting pictures of favorite recipes. i admit, i’ve failed miserably in following through with that particular goal (minus the recipe posted here). i tend to blame it on the fact that we have a small kitchen but that is just a terrible excuse. thanks to my mom i really enjoy cooking but let’s be honest, having a kitchen with ample space to stir, puree, and marinate is helpful. excuses aside, i’m making a resolution to be more active with posting recipes. and until i am able to have a spacious kitchen i’ll imagine myself cooking in these spaces…
i just started reading a Parisienne style guide my sister bought me and after only a few pages i feel i have spent years studying their look. my first lesson: they have mastered the art of mixing expensive with inexpensive. while this arielle de pinto fingerless glove is quite the investment, i could see it on the arm of an ultra hip Parisienne wearing a white button-up from H&M, her mans pants that she has perfectly belted, her hair in a bun, and a dab of red lipstick. always turning heads in her understated but tres chic ensemble.
