There are pretty much only two occasions a year that I properly get dressed up for; our anniversary and my man's birthday. So this is what I wore to the latter. I realize that my idea of "dressed up" is probably your casual friday getup but ordinarily I never dress this fanceh. I snatched up this American Apparel lace dress at 50% off because I'm Asian and can't resist a good deal and also because it reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana FW10 (or all seasons). I paired it with my worn-to-death leather jacket to balance out the girliness. I'm not sure why I didn't get a better picture of the Cole Haan x Jen Brill shoes because the tassel laces and ox-blood red color are !!!!.

To celebrate, we hit up Blue Butcher for some real-deal steak and buttery bone marrow. I try not to post shitty photos taken in low low light, but the bone marrow is too ZOMG to ignore. Another epic meal for my epic belly but I was kind of disappointed to find out at the END of it that the waiter forgot to offer us our choice of sauces. Every little bit counts.

Lol you sound like me- I rarely take photos after 6pm.... the incandescent lights ruin my nice white blog layout. And that steak looks friggin amazing- I plan to drag my dad over there next week. Do they have Béarnaise sauce? Have you tried the skirt steak from Balthazar in NY? I really miss that type of steak and sauce.

Now hungry. Should sleep.


Ps I thought you took your photos in some cha chaan teng seeing the tiled floors. hehehe.
Pps. we should meet up soon!
