Weekend Roundup

9 Dec

The last few weekends have been a bit of a snooze fest, so I was really excited to have a packed schedule of activities over the weekend.

FRIDAY– After a long week of work it’s tough to get all dolled up for a night out on the tiles. That’s why I was grateful my friends decided for a low key girls night. We went to dinner at Star Tavern, the BEST pizza in NJ. This was definitely a stretchy pants kind of night.  And then watched the endless number of Real Housewives episodes that I DVRed…I love that DVR has become a verb.


Saturday night Lindz, her beau JB, and I went to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (aka BAM) to see a performance of Trombone Shorty. I was a little skeptical since I’m not a huge jazz fan, but this guy…I was left speechless! He did a 5 minute solo, literally non-stop. Not sure how he did it, but somehow he simultaneously inhaled while continuing to blow his horn. AMAZEBALLS!!!

After the show we went to Junior’s for the most delicious cheesecake in the world. Since I’ve been 10 years old I wanted my wedding cake to be Junior’s cheesecake. This was Lindz’s first time there, which I couldn’t believe, and she got the full experience. The crazy was all out that night and it was SPECTACULAR!

Sunday I went to my dad’s place for Hannukah brunch.  I got these amazing gloves that can be used with my iPhone.  Now I won’t have to freeze my fingers off to text.

After brunch…and much needed nap time…I went with My Midget to see “Burlesque”.  I went in with very low expectations so as to not be disappointed.  Needless to say I was completely BLOWN AWAY with amazingness.  I mean it had Cher, Stanley Tucci, a ridiculous story line, and the worst acting performance since Mariah Carey in “Glitter”.  In fact, if “Glitter” and “Chicago” had a love child it would most definitely be “Burlesque”.  If you haven’t seen it, you MUST!  Don’t expect Oscar worthy performances, but Cher is still fab-u-lous, and a Stanley Tucci stole the show.

I also submitted my entries for the Michael Kors contest on Polyvore.  What do you think?


Happy Harry Potter Day!!!

19 Nov

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Pt. 1 arrives in theaters today.  I’ve already pre-purchased my tickets to see it.  The local movie theater has just been revamped to be a dine-in theater…I’m still not sure what this means, but the tix cost me $20!!!  I think there are tables and waitresses, and most imporantly a full bar 🙂  For that kind of bank I better get a cocktail on the house.  I’ll report back tomorrow on how the movie is, although I’m sure it will be nothing short of FABOO.

Here are a couple OOTDs to catch up on:

This week’s outfits include some new pieces like a gold feather necklace purchased at a boutique in my home town, and the Theory Kaleb sweater dress/tunic. I don’t know who can wear this as a dress, but it hits me about mid-thigh so I guess it could be dress for someone shorter.

Ladies Who Brunch

14 Nov

Today I met my high school girlfriends for brunch and some much needed girl talk.  Whenever we’re all together it’s usually with boyfriends, husbands, significant others, and now even babies.  So to get us all together without these “distractions” is quite a feat.

We went to George & Martha’s in Morristown.  I’ve only ever been to the bar, but was pleasantly surprised with how good the food is.  I had flank steak and eggs…nom nom nom!

3 1/2 hours later…like I said, there was a lot to discuss…I’m back home relaxing with a Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family.  Only 6 more days until HP and the Deathly Hallows!!!!  I’m too excited to sleep!!!

H&M taupe asymmetric sweater
Target skinny jeans
DV Dolce Vita biker boots- I bought these on Thursday with my Bloomies friends & family coupon…the shaft (hehe, shaft!) folds down to convert them into booties.  LUV!

Am I really doing this???

12 Nov

I don’t know why, but I’ve decided to start a blog which I’ve obviously named “Darth Vestis.”  This brings together my 2 favorite things in this world- Star Wars and fashion…Darth as in Darth Vader, and vestis which is the Latin word for clothing.  Yes, I know I’m a dork.

So welcome to my page, and my journey into the blogosphere (is that what they call it???)

To start, here is an OOTD (and yes this is taken in the bathroom at work):

  • H&M button down tunic
  • Tory Burch boyfriend sweater
  • GAP riding leggings
  • Kelsi Dagger “Winchester Boots”
  • Fuschia pashmina (this office is FREEZING!)
