Chicago on Broadway

Bodysuit, Nasty Gal. Pants, Devlin. Sunnies, Foster Grant. Bag, C Wonder from QVC. Necklace, Zara.

Sheer bodysuits, wide leg pants, and all that jazz. (Okay, I’m a cheeseball.) After living in New York City for eight years I finally went to see Chicago on broadway! Talk about flash and pizazz. This show was a lot of fun and we were singing in our seats. Mama, played by Natasha Yvette Williams, was ahh-maz-ing. What a powerful voice.

Going out for an evening of theatre in the city really makes me feel like a New Yorker again. In the spirit of Chicago I wore my new sheer body suit from Nasty Gal. (Sometimes when I’m home alone I wear just the body suit and pretend I’m a gymnast or ballerina, but edgy…) I’ve been wanting to wear these wide leg pants for awhile and it made my bodysuit a bit more formal for an evening at the theatre. To break up the all black look I added this heavy metal necklace from Zara.

Have any of you guys seen Chicago?? Also, any suggestions on what show to see next?

Xx, Emily

P.S. A special thanks to Chicago the musical for the tickets!! We had an amazing evening 🙂

Dress, Rebecca Taylor (2ta.) Boots, Ted & Muffy. Sunnies, Foster Grant.

Flowers and flirty dresses are always a great combination, especially for a day at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I picked up this Rebecca Taylor dress at 2nd Time Around on Houston (in NYC) and fell in love with this beautiful dusty purple color and each and every cute little layer of ruffle. I felt a little over dressed for the day, but they alway say it’s better to be over dressed than under dressed. Also, I was feeling super royal when I was looking out over the gardens from the banister (even though it was just a platform on a staircase and not a balcony off my castle… but, close enough… for now.)

You must take a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens if you have not already, it’s absolutely worth it! It’s such a nice escape from the noises (aka constant honking) in NYC. I particularly loved the Shakespeare garden. They have so many herbs and plants that are mentioned in Shakespeare’s work. I also enjoyed having zen moments by the pond watching all the turtles sunbathe! Flowers are one of my favorite things, so I had a wonderful day being completely surrounded by them. What do you think of this look?

Destination Canada: Wining & Dining

A couple days ago we had a luncheon with Destination Canada, and it went above and beyond our expectations. We walked into Acme Studios to find Mayssam, a cool as hell DJ spinning awesome music as a video of Canadian wildlife played on the wall. Eric Pateman of Edible Canada walked us over to mixologist Nader Chabaane who was creating cocktails we could have never dreamed up. Look at that mini ice bowl holding the raspberries! Pateman then took us over to culinary expert Scott Jaeger who was whipping up unbelievable bites.

I don’t know much about oysters and caviar, but I slurped both the butter coated and sake soaked shells, and spooned the salty caviar wondering how Canada isn’t well-known for both! I also basically drooled over the warm smoked sockeye salmon and Atlantic lobster stew. Top it all of with wine expert Felix Leonard-Gagne serving up some of Canada’s award-winning wine. Apparently these wines aren’t easy to come across, but when sommelier Felix gets a hold of them and pours them aplenty, I’m a very happy camper.

We will soon be planning our first WanderLust Girls trip to Canada, so stay tuned on which region we pick!
