Food Porn Friday | 1st Annual Chef's Bet Dinner

Not only are they total foodies (yes, like the rest of y'all I'm sure), but they live and die fine dining and haute cuisine. So much in fact that the losers of superfluous amounts of random bets are left to devise, conceptualize, cook, and execute multiple course meals with wine pairings, molecular gastronomy, gold leafed desserts…the whole SHABANG!

Food Porn Friday | An ode to Ikko Sushi | Costa Mesa

One of my greatest joys of living in OC is regular trips to my FAVE sushi joint in Costa Mesa. 
Ikko’s seriously MASTER CLASS y’all. I’ve probably dined over two dozen times (first blogged HERE) and each time is a different experience than the last. With a seasonally rotating menu reflecting whatever Chef Ikko Kobayashi’s into these days, I revel at the opportunity to visit once/twice/ or even 3 times a quarter, since I SWEAR my most memorable meals were spawned out of Ikko’s freestyle kitchen and sushi bar. 

Paillettes and Lace

I snagged this little glittery vintage paillette party top from the Long Beach flea just a few Sundays ago. There she was, glistening and gleaming in the midst of a commercial garment rack jammed in between polyester pant suits and other sequin thingamajigs just waiting for someone to love her. 

Haute Khuuture turns 2 today!!!

My how time flies!
Seems like just yesterday my little baby learned to crawl; now she’s soaring up to creatively new heights and I seriously couldn’t be more proud! I owe it all to YOU, my fierce, fabulous, fantastically stylish readers from near and afar!

Trend Spotting | Pastel Hues

I’ve been living in bright bold jewel tones and all out glamour for the past few years…it’s nice to finally tone it down a bit and let the serenity sweep me right into a new season. Loving lavender and pink, aqua, mint, and buttercream, a confection of candy colors all bathed in the glow of natural spring light. Such soothing hues getcha dreaming of relaxing in an exotic locale far far away…anyone else have a case of the Mondays??
