Wally’s Beverly Hills Restaurant For My Birthday

I went to Wally’s Beverly Hills restaurant with my friend on Thursday for my birthday lunch after treating myself to a signature facial and an aromatherapy massage at The Hotel Bel Air spa. Chef David Feau outdid himself with the menu. Even the burgers and fries are special. I had the truffle fries with the cheeseburger and it was outstanding. They even shaved quite a bit of truffle on top of the fries with the sea salt fries. I had a glass of rose from Napa Valley while chatting  with my best friend and digging into the juiciest medium rare burger I have had in a long time.

The bar is a full bar well lit with the perfect bar stools and cool marble counter tops. It is pure luxury in every corner. Every detail from the lighting to the wine racks and cheese counter will make you want to come back every single day to try something new. The place is an experience and is definitely on my list as one of the top must go to spots for dinner or lunch.

We ended the meal with a meringue bottom flourless chocolate cake with a raspberry sorbet. What a finish and look at the presentation below. No detail was left unattended to. If you have a special occasion or just want a bite to eat after shopping on Rodeo Drive or Beverly Drive, visit Wally’s Beverly Hills. It is a must try. Bring home a bottle of wine and some cheese too.

Saks 25% off Friends and Family Sale

Saks 25% off Friends and Family sale It is time again for the Saks 25% off Friends and Family sale. There are so many great sales right now and you might think, I don’t really need anything. My advice is to really take a good hard look at your closet and clean out what you don’t want and donate all those things or sell them at the Real Real and get the new stuff you really want. No sense letting it all sit in your closet collecting dust. Your daughter will most likely not want your hand me downs when she is old enough to wear those pieces in a few years, so go ahead and clean that closet and then sit back and look through the site and see what is new for the season. I am a huge fan of AG Jeans and found the perfect ankle length distressed jeans for us petite gals on sale. Halston Heritage has the prettiest strapless chiffon pink dress for the holidays that is part of this sale too. And if you are looking for boots for the winter, check out these See by Chloe modern wedge boots for 25% off.

MM6 Maison Margiela has the coolest engagement ring pendant necklace with a 30 inch chain this season that has a double clasp. The necklace goes perfectly with the R13 stack boots.

Yesterday was supposed to be the last day, but now today is the last day.

So now that I am home on a Saturday morning, I can sit down with a cup of coffee and really take my time and see what else I want to buy for fall. Other pieces I have my eye on include this amazing Self Potrait lace dress, this Shoshanna floral dress is also gorgeous for 25% off, and you definitely need a pair of velvet sweatpants from Joie for the fall and winter party season for the days you do not want to wear a dress to a casual cocktail party. The APC velvet trousers are great to pair with the Ulla Johnson ruffle sweater that I am obsessed with for fall. This is a great sale, don’t miss out. And don’t forget to invest in a great pair of combat boots for this season. My favorite are from R13.

Self Portrait Pink Lace Dress

Self Potrait Pink Lace DressI recently discovered my new favorite dress designer. As you all know, I love Ulla Johnson and cannot get enough of all the great Ulla Johnson dresses that are out there. I also love Isabel Marant for her perfectly designed dresses as well. However, recently, I discovered the ultra flattering and beautifully made Self Potrait dresses and I have not been able to resist buying as many as I can find. Recently, I bought this perfect pink dress from Self Portrait and my daughter wore it for her bat mitzvah. The lace on this dress is exquisite. You can see the detail and texture on the dress that gives it that almost couture look. I now own a few Self Portrait dresses and they are definitely a new go to designer for special occasions.

Self Potrait lace dress above is available here in blue.
