NYFW- Maatano A/W 2013 Food and Fashion!






Let’s skip this winter and fast forward straight to fall which is going to be amazingly dark,  laid back  and regal all at the same time. With tons of texture, gold and prints that keep you mesmerized Mataano served fall on a platter that made you want to devour each piece. The collection channeled Janet Jackson circa 1997 patent leather, cheetah print and it was rich with color.

Speaking of platter as part of the festivities Chef Roble was the master of eats serving a plethora of appetizers that made me want to slap your mother. Chicken, portobello mushroom , succulent steak, mixed greens and tortellini rounded out the menu.

 Come fall, I can see I will  need some leather of all types in my wardrobe, and what about that makeup winged liner and those vamp lips ladies get ready for the fall it’s going to be dark and lovely.

Georgetown Cupcakes

by Lisa
I fell in love over the weekend. I mean truly, madly and deeply in LOVE. This past Saturday the temperatures in the DMV ( DC, MD, VA) hit 76 degrees, a temperature that makes it near impossible to sit in the house especially given our harsh winter where we saw somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 plus inches of snow… Anyway, I digress, my romance began with a trip to Georgetown to enjoy the people, sites, and of course get a little high-end retail therapy.  It was a day for walking and as the official first day of spring, the perfect back-drop to begin this love affair.

I was deterred by my new lover at first, because there were many people who had been there before me, and I was demure about being added to a long list of former lovers. When I arrived at the doorstep, the line was almost around the block! I would not be deterred, I had come this far (I drove from Baltimore!) and I refused to turn back. I waited patiently, growing more excited the closer I got to meeting my new love. Georgetown cupcakes- is my new lover, and my affair began with salted caramel, chocolate ganache, and berry lemon cupcakes. I am planning a trip again for Thursday- because that’s when they feature Key Lime.
