Lunch at Saks: Café SFA

One of my favorite things to do: lunch at Café Saks Fifth Avenue. I'm so habitual (it borders on peculiar) that I request the same things every time: a grilled cheese sandwich with french fries and a table in the room with all the windows, from which you can see 30 Rock (aka Rockefeller Plaza).

Dior "Mise En Dior" Tribal Earrings

Dior "Mise En Dior" Tribal Earrings

I saw the girl in the Dior department at Saks Fifth Avenue wearing these, and I thought they looked SO cool. Seriously, very cool. And they're just right, not too overstated.

Mary Kate + Ashley: The Row x Barney's Dinner in San Francisco

Image via Olsen's Anonymous, Elephantt Gun

I like that pic of MK+A at the dinner for The Row x Barney's; I like the chic minimalism of their outfits, and I'm glad to see that the Birkenstock is making a healthy comeback this year. In fact, while I already own a pair of oilcloth black Birks with the traditional cork bottom, I'm on the lookout for a pair in all black in the Monterey model. I really like the way they look (and they are very comfortable- I can vouch for that!)

I love the peach accents of these two images, as well as their overall chic look.

When I scroll through my Tumblr, and I happen upon two photos that look like they belong together, I take it upon myself to play matchmaker.
