As much as I am a fan of happy hour (especially on Fridays, who’s with me???) I am hardly an aficionado of happy hour’s cheap eats. NEVER, I repeat NEVER a valid indication of the restaurant’s main menu, to truly get a taste of the cuisine, I always dine during regular hours so I know the food is fresh and the ingredients focused. When did fried batter become a food group anyhow, right?
Another one of my late-night Craigslisting adventures…sometimes yields junk on top of trash on top of scraps piled amongst rubble. But every so often I manage to unearth a diamond in the rough like this gorgeous campaign-style dresser complete with all original hardware and even a pull-out tray table to boot.
===>Insert sad face here :(
My stress level has been at the ultimate high juggling multiple clients, various projects, designing and furnishing a move for 2 different studios, not to mention trying to pretend I have some form of a social life where I show up half-awake with a tiny semblance of functionality. Phew!!! It’s been a total clusterf*ck in my camp so I’m more than ELATED to share that I’m nearly past the hump!!!
You can catch all my foodie friends in action HERE and HERE. I swear I’m the luckiest little gal to be surrounded by such a versatile and passionate group of gourmet aficionados. One minute we’re devouring gorgeous delicacies of foie gras with berry remoulade, the next we’re pounding cognac shots by the second. Ohhhhhh yeah, work hard, play HARDER hunnies!!
I’ve been known to style entire ensembles around a fabulously bitchin’ accessory. Case in point: Sway Chic sent over this gorgeous faux snakeskin clutch with a contrasting metallic copper and red ribbon band down the body. I pulled this fabulous rouge/rust color story right from her shiny skin et voila! Saturday-night ready in no time at all!
I first found this restaurant through my clients while designing their Huntington Harbour home. Industrial chic design located in a forgotten corner of a Trader Joe’s strip mall, Red Table’s got every element of a trendy/hipster dining establishment: Tufted banquettes, distressed wood tables, and plenty of pretty long-limbed PCH locals for days.
