Candy stripes - yummy weekend

Another great weekend filled with food & wine...

Nothing could wipe the smile off hubby's face when we ate at a Southern Indian dosai & curry place, reminiscent of the food he grew up with.

Vanessa Bruno black wool, silk chiffon & lace dress (the dress has sheer silk chiffon panels on the side close-up here)
Zimmermann ruched puffy & capped sleeve top
Marc Jacobs pumps
Burberry quilted patent leather belt


  1. that dress looks great on you!
    the food looks delicious, and those passed out statues are too funny!

  2. mmm looks like a great weekend!
    love those statues.

    im indian too and my mum makes the BEST homemade dosas. hehe does your hubby ever surprise you with homecooked indian food? coz it really is the best. restaurant indian and homemade indian taste so different. mmm nothing beats palak paneer made by my mum ;)

  3. wow what a gorgeous looking restaurant! those shoes are pretty amazing answer your question, i'm pretty sure her dress is herve leger. Funny huh, it kinda looks like balenciaga s/s 08 from the jennifer connely campaign.

  4. Vanessa Bruno is also one of my favorites! Great clothes, always comfortable - in perfect colors! :)
    Wonderful outfit post, the dress is fabulous!

  5. You look lovely, as do those flowers! What a fun weekend!


  6. Nice outfit! I've never had Indian food before, I really wanna try it. And LOL the statue.

  7. Ooh, the dress is quite pretty. Also, the food looks and sounds delicious. I am addicted to all things involving curry.

  8. beauty look!!!

    *te invito a mi blog desde ya puedes ver mi nueva colección de zapatos!!!
    espero te guste!


    I invite you to my blog from already you can see my new collection of shoes!!!
    I wait you like it!


    je t'invite à mon blog depuis tu peux déjà voir ma nouvelle collection de chaussures!!!
    j'espère qu'il te plaît!

    des baisers!

  9. The food looks very appetizing.

  10. Ah, the fooooood =]

    And of course, your ensemble is perfection. That dress fits you so well! On any other that cut would be a tricky thing to wear, mistakenly looking boyish. But you look stunning!

    La C.

  11. that dress is so beautiful! once again i am very envious! not only that but the food too. I love it when a meal is all jumbled up on a plate like that, colours all mashed together.

    in response to your comment: there was a huge smile on my face when i saw the rick owens chiffon jacket on net-a-porter. unfortunately, incredibly out of my price range and just a jacket for my dreams, but it is just so stunning. He really has some of the best ideas when it comes to jacket, say what you will about the man ahahha.

    ps. yay! is it still for the weekend of the 16th/17th? I'll keep Dries Van Noten warm for you haha.


  12. I love those pics of the restaurant (esp. the clay drunkard!) and your beautiful outfit!

  13. IDLIS!!! love the statue!

  14. -h - Thanks! Yeah, the food was delish, and that wood carving was too funny, that's what I feel like after too much food & wine! :)

    jenn - Ooh! Would LOVE to try your mom's dosas & palak paneer! Hubby's not actually Indian, but grew up in Malaysia, where he grew up eating a lot of Southern Indian food, including dosas/roti for breakfast! (I couldn't eat curry first thing in the morning, so had my roti with bananas, like a pancake and ice cream, haha). He does like cooking Indian curries though, and I make a mean Dhal (LOVE it), if I may say so myself, hehe...Have also tried homecooked Indian food, as my dad had several Indian friends in Brazil, yum yum yum.

    janettaylor, chicsensibility, couture carrie & Mary M - thanks! :)

    Modediktat - I totally agree, LOVE Vanessa Bruno, such effortless classic French chic, always with a little twist/detail, which I love!

    cruz - Sacre bleu! You haven't tried curry? LOVE LOVE LOVE curries (Indian, Thai, Malaysian...)

    the clothes horse - Me too! :)

    meg - it sure was ;)

    la couturier - Aww, thanks! But in all honesty, this dress would suit a boyish figure too, as it is pleated to give shape & curves :)

    tina - thanks! I do miss curry takeaway from the UK!

    hrose - Yeah! ;) The food was self-service, hence it's all jumbled up, which I love...all the colours together...and the green 'chutney' was pistachio & coconut, SOOOOO good!

    thumbelina fashionista - thanks!

    Anon - Ah! So that's how you spell it! I absolutely LOVED idlis! The texture, and eaten with all the curries...yum!
