once upon a time, when i lived and worked in new york, my boss' favorite restaurant was le bernardin. the restaurant is world renowned both for its seafood and celebrity chef eric ripert. (you may recognize ripert's name from his many guest appearances on top chef.) during the time of our frequent visits back in 2001, men were required to wear a sports coat (if a man arrived ill-prepared and didn't have a sports coat, one would be provided) and a deposit was required to make a reservation. i don't need to tell you that the food was the best i've ever had, then and since. i always meant to take my boyfriend (now husband) to le bernardin, but for whatever reason we never got the chance to dine there together. in honor of valentine's day and our third installment of wear in the world, we are going to le bernardin today in this little outfit. may even apply a touch of makeup and toss up a messy bun a la keri russell. a girl can dream, right?
what are you all up to? whatever you do, enjoy, love, and happy valentine's day!
