So I am a girl that is all about fashion and timeless pieces, and I do not need to have the “IT” bag every season. I am very passionate about the classics that are an investment instead of a money pit. Two pieces that I have been lusting after for years are the Chanel maxi classic flap bag and the Valentino noir rock stud pump. I look at buying the real thing in the store like driving a new car off the lot: it loses value when you walk out of the store, so I prefer to consign. There are two sites that I love and guarantee authenticity for a full refund if mis-represented… I purchased my flap bag at fashionphile.com, and my rockstuds at tradesy.com and I could not be happier 🙂 For date night, I paired these statement staples with Madewell high rise coated skinnies, my “Bae Area” sweatshirt from Private Party, and my fave red lipstick, Rouge D’Armani #400.
We went out for a date night in Temescal at Pizzaiolo, a gourmet Italian kitchen that I have been hearing about since we moved to Oakland, and it did not disappoint. I started with the “Ward” cocktail: rye, lemon, orange juice + housemade grenadine = YUM, then sweet water oysters with Prosecco mignonette, and for the main course, the delectable Arugula, Guanciale, hot pepper + Grana pizza (with an added farm egg). We loved the ambiance, server and food, and will definitely be returning.
Happy hump day, and thanks for stopping by 🙂
