The Four F’s

27Jun10

Ay bay bays! Friday was an amazing day that was beyond blog-worthy. What made it this way were the four F’s.

First off, there’s fashion. It is essential. I use fashion to express mood, to play, to explore an arty/edgy/sporty/spicy/what-have-you side of me. The possibilities! Apparently, the ever-lovely Danielle knows this about me, and decided that a wonderful way to spend a day together would be to visit the Brooklyn Museum‘s American High Style exhibit.

Excitement.

Warhol AND fashion? Yes. Please.

We may have spent most of our time trying to find the exhibit, but when we finally did locate the exquisitely preserved gowns, bliss overtook. Despite my wanting to photograph every single outfit, I wasn’t sure it was permitted. After taking one picture, I got so nervous I dropped my phone. Thus, the single picture from the fashion exhibit:

I naturally wanted to try on everything. I also wanted MamaJ to be there because it was SO HER.

I did, however, work up enough courage to photograph plates of two greats:

I wonder what that shape means...

Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Hey, I guess this is merely the artist’s version of food blogging.

Which leads me to the second F: food. I had plenty deliciousness yesterday:

Rawesome Rawstar. (Yeah, get ready for the puns.)

Kale salad with pear and some sort of rawe-inspiring dressing.

The innards of these chipotle hand rolls were rawkin'.

These are supposedly raw falafel. They were rawful.

Danielle and I de-veganized ourselves hours later with this blog world staple:

Pinkberry! My first. Gosh, I'm so trendy now.

Mango topped with pineapple, vanilla snackanimal cookies and crushed Oreos. Unbelievable.

But for dinner, I got back with the vegan program at Cafe Viva. For all my vegans, this sign’s for you:

DAIYA!!! Revolutionary, fa sho.

I felt I had no choice other than to select a vegan slice:

Daiya formaggio on whole-wheat crust.

The last two F’s go hand in happy hand: friends and fun. Sometimes it’s hard to have one without the other. Dancing our tails off at Turtle Bay, Danielle, Leslie, Sofia and I had a blast (OK, maybe I’m putting words in their mouths, but I had a fanfreakingtastic time):

BLOG LOVE IN THIS CLUB!!!

I am beyond thankful that in this wonderful city, I get to both meet new, fabulous people and spend time with my one and only:

Pure, unadulterated happiness.

The fact that it all occurred on a Friday–another fab F– is just a fun little fact.

Go off and be blissfully happy this weekend! Love you!

Ciao for now,

Kailey

    haahahaha i laughed soooo hard when i saw the virgina woolf. Im much to lazy to scroll back up and see how its spelled, excuse me 🙂

    I seriously though it said (vajay) wolf, i then proceeded to imagine little mini wolfs coming out from yonder lady parts. yes, i have a weirdddd mind. Hope your having fun in NYC missy! I know I LOVE IT THERE.

    You MUST go to the wax museum, that was the BEST THING EVER.

  37. I am just now following you, and I will be totally honest and say that it’s because I read your “about me section,” and you had me at “sarcastic” and “Weezy.” Then I read this post, saw the plate and V Wolfe comment, and decided it had to be done.

      Rachel- Good lawd, sometimes I don’t realize just how ridiculous I can be. OOOOPS. I’m glad it won you over, though! Welcome!

  38. Amazing pics and fun weekend and awesomeness. And so jealz that you and Gena had a meetup! Saw it on her site and had to come racing over to say I’d LOVE to meet both of you 🙂

  39. Now that, my friend, is one helluva a good weekend. Great pics! The museum looks amazing. And Pinkberry, get in my face!

  40. It’s a fact known to man that words that start with F, and naturally, B are just really really better words. Food, Fashion, Fun and Friends! Sign me up. I met Leslie before- total sweetheart, and happens to be living my second life. Beyond cool. Looks like so much fun Kailey!

  41. Ok, maybe I need some help with that sign. Why is soy cheese not vegan cheese? And what is Daiya?
