1. Can I share with you all one of the most beautiful floaty maxi dresses I’ve seen lately?
I tried on this Melissa Odabash dress awhile ago but was unable to locate it online – because I was looking under “dress” and not “cover-up”! In my opinion it’s actually a great dress too – there’s a light layer underneath that makes sure you’re covered, and the material is very soft and feels high quality. Recommended.
By the way, the tote above is from Tory Burch and it was the first time I’ve ever seen it – though of course it appears to be sold out everywhere currently!
2. I found this article about luxury price hikes quite interesting, from CNBC. There’s a lot of interesting nuggets in there – like the fact that luxury houses have hiked prices faster in Europe than Asia, in order to reduce the huge price differences that can sometimes occur. For me personally I am sensitive to price hikes, and I’ve walked away from items in the past year that I wouldn’t have a few price hikes ago. It’s hard to buy when you know an item was 30% less just two years ago.
3. For anyone whose ever been to a Masala Dosa location, or is interested in Indian food…small business success stories…or true crime..I’d recommend this interesting article via the NYTimes, “Masala Dosa to Die For.” I’ve been to several locations with friends and have always enjoyed the meal…though I definitely didn’t know the controversial back story surrounding its founder.
4. Speaking of food….I shared a photo of some home made beef noodle soup on my Instagram earlier this week, and received a few requests for recipes. Actually to give fair credit it was my mom who gave me the recipe, and Mr. Feather who made it!
My mom’s recipe is partially in Chinese and we added some steps as well. Before typing it all out I researched online and found a very similar and much more clearly documented recipe from Food 52. We used no oil (the fat from the shank was enough), baby bok choy instead of cabbage and no tomatoes. If you have an Asian supermarket near you, I might also suggest substituting your favorite noodles.
Enjoy! This is my favorite food and dinner meal, ever.
