Sometimes I think of myself as the Winners queen. I find serious gems there and all at a great price. It’s hard to want to shop for quality pieces but not always being able to afford those high price tags that come along with well made garments. Winners makes that available to the average fashionista; ie me! I love Winners. Honestly I find it calming, which is probably an insane thing to hear, but for me sifting through the racks on my own time is like an alcoholic having a drink. It fills a void for me. It inspires me. Even if I’m not buying anything it allows me to get a feel for fabric, learning different sizing and seeing what trends are coming in and out.
This particular outfit combo I wore for my birthday out to dinner with the boy to Enoteca Sociale in Toronto’s West Side. Their patio is so beautiful it feels like you’re in Shakespeares forest in A Midnight’s Summer Dream; also duh the food is delicious. We Shared the arancini, of which you can order as many or as little as you like and I find that perfect, and the beef crudo for starters. If you are a fan of tartare I would say run there to try it, it’s unreal. As for our mains we shared two fresh pasta dishes, the Cavatelli Di Ricotta which was probably one of the lightest most delicious pestos I’ve ever had, and the Tortellini In Brodo which was a braised lamb and lemon filled pasta in a buttery broth. I can’t even explain how delicious and rich this was yet so light at the same time. It reminded me of the broth filled dumplings I had at Din Tai Fung. My man topped off the night with a hot sticky toffee pudding and went to bed with a food coma. My man is a friggin keeper I tell ya.
