The OOTD 4/22/15

So todays OOTD is brought to you by the desire to wear a skirt today.  Was like hmmmm feel like a skirt, haven’t worn this in awhile, all black today yeeeeeaaaa.  I got to work and my coworker told me I looked like I was ready for shul.  I work in a really casual office but sometimes I feel like I need to step up my wardrobe game, its like that adage, dress for where you want to go not for where you are.  So here are the deets

Skirts take me back to 5 and I find myself swishing the skirt and then someone notices……and looks at me crazy like you a grown woman!  Side mention, not sure who signed off on the cut for the skirt but I had to go up to a 16 just to get it to fit. And special mention to my other coworker for making an appearance while i was doing my bathroom photoshoot.


Date Night at Horus on A

So last Friday was date night for me and the mans, and him being such a great bf he brought me flowers (prob helps that’s I’ve been harping about it) but anywhoooo he wanted to be surprised with where we would eat at.  So after trolling Living Social I came across an offer for the Horus Cafe on ave A.   The deal included two glasses of wine, two appetizers, two entrees and two deserts.  I picked it because they have belly dancing shows on Fridays (which we missed).

So after picking me up from work we headed on down to Ave A in the LES and promptly got seated.  Its your typical middle eastern décor, beige walls, Moroccan style lamps, and these awesome copper top tables.  The café as has hookah service as well, being a former smoker I passed.  So we got hummus (extra), Moroccan cigars and a Greek salad to share.  Nom, nom, nom is all I can say.  There was enough in appetizers we were kinda full by the time the food rolled around.  For entrees the bf got lamp chops with a potato gratin and I got chicken royal.  His chops were delish!  The potato’s were so creamy and tasty and complimented well with grilled veggies.  My chicken was moist and flavorful and served in what was an Alfredo sauce and a side of sautéed spinach with CHUNKS of garlic.  I mean who DOESN’T love garlic? For desert we got baklava, which was eh.  My bf was burnt and mines was kinda cooked, plus it was served with whipped cream and drizzled in chocolate (strange bedfellows).  We did get coffee to wash it all down and MAN was it strong (which was nice and have the BF buzzing).

Overall great laid back ambiance with a noise level that makes it way to talk to your party without screaming.  Most everything was good so I’d say like 3.5 out of 5 forks.  So if your looking for something off the beaten path and a little different give it a try.

BTW I realize this photo makes it seem like I have no eyebrows………….
