Lookbook: Frills and Cheap Thrills

1/21/2013

You know what's one of my cheap thrills? Food. These were taken before the hubs and I went out for some bulgogi in Japantown. Have you ever had bulgogi? It's pretty delicious. And Friday night we went out to this pretty cool restaurant/bar in Oakland called MUA. If you're local to the bay area, I suggest that you head over there at some point because it has a great, creative atmosphere. I stuffed myself on butternut squash mac-n-cheese, tomato bisque, creme brulee and Kahlua and cream. I love me some Kahlua and cream.

I think my love of Kahluas is going straight to my thighs. But either I'll be OK with fat thighs or I'll slim down and get cheerleader thighs, also known as square crotch. You know what I'm talking about.I really wanted to wear heels with this outfit, but I was having the hardest time with my shoes. I hated everything, so I just decided to go with the flat boots since it's still a bit cold over here. Have I told you all that I'm tired of the cold yet? Well...I'm tired of the cold.

  14. I'm tired of the cold too. Here in the North Bay, is doesn't want to thaw out. I went for a hike yesterday and found a stream (in the shade) solid ice.

    Is Oakland very far from you? It would be so amazing to get together and grab lunch! We could go to some little spot in Oakland - perhaps when the weather is warmer.

    I love the print on your jeans!
