take it to go: serving 2

Apologies for being a little MIA this week! I've been focusing on rebranding and redesign issues (still working out some kinks) and since I'm not a machine, it's sometimes tough to crank out good content in between working, commuting (an hour and a half through the snow Wednesday morning) and living. On top of the usual office-gym-bed thing, I squeezed in mid-week Mexican with work friends, sampled craft cocktails at a new bar, packed for Arizona (planning takes so much longer than actual packing) and tried to stay on top of things going on outside my world—like my sister's birthday tomorrow. Wishing her the best day. Gift's in the mail! I'm so excited to see my hometown BFFs this weekend for Julia's wedding. We live scattered across the country from LA to Omaha, so getting together doesn't happen often—and is so much better when it does. Follow along with the fun on instagram and I'll have updates for you on Monday! Until then, here's what I've been clicking through this week.

IT'S NOT TOO LATE. I had no idea people used Craigslist like this. I'm not sure if it's creepy or cool, but admire the initiative of these people and can identify with their regret.  

FASHION FIND. I've never been a fan of the shirt dress, but this sleeveless adaptation (Harper's 2/27 Style Secret) totally changes my mind.

MORE THAN A MEAL. I had brunch at Pastis the summer I interned in Manhattan (only knowing it because of placement in a Sex &the City episode—not ashamed). This is a fascinating look beyond what a casual observer could see, and study in the evolution of the city.

RIVETED. I broke a sweat trying to keep up with Frank Underwood's quips in this clip. If you're not sure what the House of Cards buzz is about, here are the cliff notes. Spacey's emotionless delivery of sarcasm and strategy will suck you in. Love that shadowy opening score.  

NAIROBI BLUE. Lupita Nyong'o was pretty universally accepted as Best Dressed at the Oscars (I give Kate Hudson the runner-up ribbon), but there's more to pay attention to than her powder blue Prada. Cheers to life after twenty-one and celebrating "delayed" success.
