Last Sunday I met friends at While We Were Young in the West Village for brunch. You may or may not have seen this place pop up on your Instagram feed. I kept hearing great things about it so I decided to check it out. It’s A-DOR-ABLE. Especially with the nice weather we have been having in NYC this is the perfect place to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere and food were great. They don’t take reservations so my friends & I were the first ones in line before they opened at noon. And of course I just had to snap photos of the decor as soon as we walked in.
Adorable, right? I will definitely be back at night for cocktails. Their cocktail menu looked delicious. Can’t you just picture yourself sitting on one of those bar stools on a spring/summer evening people watching with a cocktail in hand?
In other news…
Victoria Beckham for Target collection launched today. I looooooove Victoria Beckham. Not sure how I feel about VBxTGT collaboration as you know my distain for fast fashion. I haven’t seen the clothes in person so I can’t comment on the fit or quality. However, I can get behind her children’s collection. Kids grow out (and ruin) clothes so easily I understand it’s tough to “invest” in their wardrobe. Leave that to the crazy aunts like me who don’t mind paying full retail for Petit Bateu.
Switching gears to high fashion, Hotel Piagelle just announced their newly-minted Suite Belle. Complete with your own bartender, a closet full of designer clothes (in your size!), jewelry, etc etc. This takes playing dress up to a whole new level.
Allbirds was christened the ‘Most Comfortable Shoe’ by Silicon Valley. They just released a new style “The Loungers” for women and men.
Meditation + Manicures = sundays nail studio. They pioneered this combination service helps with focus, memory, increased confidence and overall wellness. Fascinating. Perhaps I’ll make my way downtown to try this.
