NYC eats

while in New York last week we managed to sit down and have some really delicious meals.

first up: El Toro Blanco, yummy mexican food and swanky (but not too fancy) decor. loved the vibe.
get: the guacamole, house marg (no mix--score) and the cheese crisp.
Bocqueria tapas bar. we ordered the spinach dish twice; once during dinner, then another for dessert. 
Antibes Bistro was a little spot with dim lighting that had live jazz that night, always a cozy plus.
what are your favorite spots in NYC? I'd love to hear!

in the kitchen: brian's pickles

Brian made pickles for our Tahoe trip. So yummy. I thought I'd share the recipe here...

Blue Farm at Kingpins (Los Angeles)

We met up with Chris of Blue Farm at the Kingpins show to check out their latest collection. We have been collaborating with them, designing some of the plaids and prints that appear in their collection. So, it's great to see the final product. As always, it all looks amazing!

indigo NYC 2013

our trip to NYC was a whirlwind (isn't it always?), but lots of fun. 
I got to peek into the Isabel Marant store (they were closed!), and it's just a dreaaaam. sigh.
I'll do another post on where we ate, because - well - it just deserves specific attention. 
1. sweeping slope
2. colorful zebra at the Alexis Bittar store in Soho
3. morning coffee at the hotel
4. showtime!
5. hangout spot after the show 
6. our vintage dresses sittin' pretty, waiting for the right home

love from They Roared Vintage

the lovely gals over at They Roared Vintage included our pinterest page (along with some other great pinners) on their blog last week. Funny thing is, I get the most excited when I see their pins -- lots of great fashion photography and pictures I haven't seen anywhere else. (They must scan images all the live, long day). 
These ladies have great taste!

happy new year!

we started 2013 in the beautiful mountains of Lake Tahoe, California.
we stayed in a cabin that was under multiple feet of snow with a hot tub and lots of friends (+ two little ones!).
such a nice way to start the year.

cheers to new adventures!
