ice box and giggles

fun date night with the boyfriend. he brought me to see gabriel iglesias for the south beach comedy tour.
[cardigan: bcbg; tank: f21; skirt: yigal azrouel; shoes: steve madden; purse: chanel]
i love love love this restaurant. the menu is constantly changing... it all depends on what the chefs bought at the market!
yummy tomato and basil bruschetta
tilapia with a guacamole and sweet corn aioli, served with roasted sweet potatoes
argentinian skirt stake with chimichurri sauce and assorted roasted veggies
so awkward, i was so tempted to lick the plate

and of course, you need a slice of ice box cake! this one is strawberry.

and he was the whole reason this night happened. hilarious.

target collabos

i am always excited for upcoming collaborations with target. however, with anna sui and even rodarte... i always returned the dresses because i am just not satisfied. march 7th will be the jean paul gaultier launch and april 25th will be the zac posen launch. unfortunately, the prices for these collections are more expensive than the past. tear.

anyhoo i'm 100% sure that my shopping cart will be full nevertheless!

the miami airport is a complete headache. so, after i arrived back home, decided to check out my dvr. watched "coco chanel" that was featured on lifetime a week or so ago. [speaking of lifetime... i'm so excited project runway starts TOMORROW!!! ekk!] the main actress, barbora bobulova, is a complete doll, in a bad-ass independent sort of way.
and speaking of chanel... i'm still unsure about the temporary tattoo trend from s/s 2010, but if you can rock it... go for it!
this necklace looks so ethereal.

in other news: happy birthday patrick mcdreamy! ... i mean dempsey.
