Brunch at Five Points and The WINNER of the LNA LEGGINGS!

Jacket: Theory
Tanks: F21 and Old Navy
Leggings: Old Navy
Pumps: Chanel
Bag: Fendi

I apologize for being MIA this past week. I've been swamped at work and preoccupied at home. Last weekend, I went to Five Points with one of my dearest girlfriends. I'm always looking for a quality brunch place, and Five Points, an excellent restaurant in NoHo, did not disappoint. We also heard that Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Penn Badgley were there the week before!

I can't live without pancakes, and these Lemon Ricotta pancakes were delectably moist and sweet without being overwhelming. My only complaint? No fresh fruit.

Mac 'n Cheese at its finest. If you're the type who lives for real cheese--the smelly kind that's imported from idyllic farms in Europe--then your taste buds will burst into song at the first bite of this cheesy goodness. But as a person who eats relatively less than the average person, I do recommend three dishes for two people, as each entree was quite small.
And now for the winner of the LNA leggings...

Congrats to Grace of vitaMinn Style, winner of the LNA leggings! Thanks to everybody who participated and to Chickdowntown for this amazing giveaway. I wish I could give all my readers a pair.

Hi Thumbelina!

I was looking through one of my moms many closets and drawers....(she has a walk in closet plus another big closet) and i found a bunch of fabulous vintage finds. Also, I found a miu miu windbreaker/rainjacket from the runway collection, about 5 years old. I thought of you! it is a gorgeous short jacket with big shoulders and sleeves, and many silver zippers.

Oh, another place that I would have gone to if I still lived in NY - I find it strange that these places are opening & I don't know about them. It's weird to think that NYC continues without me ; )

I also love pancakes of any kind and those lemon ricotta ones look great. And I love love love macaroni & cheese! (in the UK they drop the &, it's just 'maraconi cheese', but they put the & into bread pudding instead, and it's become 'bread & butter pudding').

Those leggings look great - more like proper skinny trousers. The zips on the bottom are so on trend. I'm going to see if they're in the UK.
