I had a brilliant outfit planned for today but when I woke up to the weather report of clouds, possible showers and cooler than expected weather, I realigned my vision.

Still in need of a light jacket, I wore this Talbot's coat, Zara scarf and remember my shopaholic tendencies from the NYC weekend I posted about here? Well darling blog readers, meet my new Balenciaga bag purchased at Bergdorf's. You can thank my brother in law for this one. My sis and I were doing a lap around 5F and he decided to belly up to the bar for a beer while waiting for us. Well our 5F lap took less than 5 minutes but with a large full beer in front of him, we decided to kill some time down in handbags. This is what happens to me when left with idle time at one of my favorite stores. A Gucci bag is what happened to my sister with our idle time.
Last week on a sunny, blue skied yet still cold day I somehow got away without wearing a coat. If not for a very short commute, I probably couldn't have gotten away with it but with only three blocks to travel, I managed.
I had such a lovely weekend especially since I had Friday off of work. My Friday started off very early catching a train to NYC to spend the weekend with my sister. While waiting for the train to NYC, a woman came up to me to tell me her sob story of a daughter in the hospital with third degree burns and needing money to buy some frozen Banquet dinners for her family. I never know if I’m being told the truth or if I’m being fed a line but I gave her a dollar anyway. What can I say; I’m a sucker. Besides, if she’s telling the truth she deserves way more than the dollar I gave her and if she’s not, her creativity and acting ability are worth at least a dollar. Besides she told me I was so pretty I ought to be in California. If that’s not worth a dollar, I don’t know what is. Anyway, I arrived in NYC just in time to belly up to the bar at Gramercy Tavern for lunch. I've done the fancy prix fixe dinners there and meals in the more casual tavern. While I love both, I do so enjoy wiling away a casual afternoon with an abundance of food and wine.

It was a dreary and rainy day so after the show my sister and I indulged in a car service to cart us around for a few hours of shopping before heading out to dinner. I had done my damage the previous day but she picked up a new old school logo Gucci bag and then off we went for snacks and drinks before dinner. We ended up at Tolani Wine Bar where lo and behold I had a cucumber/pickle martini. Fate, kismet, bechert, meant to be. It was super delicious. Then off to dinner at Atlantic Grill and before I knew it my weekend was over.
After arriving home today, I met up with Elisha for Easter dinner at Hamersley's, my kitchen away from home.
