who would think to put cherries in pasta? this sounds like the perfect end of summer/start of fall dish.
- 1 serving udon noodles
- 1 T evoo, plus more for sautéing
- 1/3 c sweet onion, chopped
- 1/3 c white balsamic vinegar
- 2 c arugula
- a few cherries, quartered
- 2-3 T chopped walnuts
- a few fresh basil leaves

1) Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil in saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes to reduce; remove from heat and let cool 5 to 10 minutes, until it thickens. [You’re making a balsamic reduction.]

3) Cook udon noodles according to package directions. Drain and return to pot.
4) Toss noodles with olive oil, onion, arugula, cherries, and walnuts. Transfer to plate; drizzle with balsamic reduction. Garnish with basil and parmesan, if desired.
spent the last couple of hours listening to lcd soundsystem sound-checking next door. torture, but also pretty cool. tried to sneak onto the tourbus or into the building as they were setting up… and failed. oh well, happy friday!
Abbey Lee was caught off duty wearing our chiffon maxi skirt that was also featured in our changing rooms video.
Her high low jumper and metallic bronze jacket compliments the look, very Star Trek esque.
Her style is great !
yep that’s right, LCD soundsystem is playing at the navy yard tonight! as i was walking into work this morning the tour bus pulled right into this parking lot in front of our building. how am i supposed to concentrate?
in honor of tonight’s show, here’s a little playlist of some LCD for your friday. the song “home” off the new album is one of my favorites right now.

our senior stylist wore the desert maxi dress with a simple gray sweatshirt and belt today and it looked amazing!
i love how our office coordinator toughened up her chiffon and lace slip with a leather jacket and sneakers!
her sneakers and necklace are pretty rad too :)
and our associate stylist looks simply adorable in a polka dot dress, tights and red shoes. i also love the lone bangle worn high up on her arm!
more styling inspiration for you today! we had our stylists demonstrate four ways to wear the lace mock neck top – one of our favorite layering pieces for fall and winter. featuring our lovely web merchandiser as model :)
the lace mock neck adds a touch of sexiness to a casual look of jeans and a plaid button down. i love how our stylists layered two plaid shirts to get a mix of prints! perfect the look with a pair of rad platforms :)
still want to wear your spring and summer dresses in fall and winter? just layer the lace mock neck underneath and add some tall socks and heels!
this look was all of our favorites :) pair the lace mock neck with a maxi skirt, tee and biker boots for the ultimate casual cool outfit. isn’t that necklace amazing too?
in this look: lace mock neck top; cp shades plaid maxi skirt; we the free graphic a-line tee; CP Shades Clothing; sport stripe slouch sock; brit boot (no longer avail.); grecian circle ring; metal leaf ring; necklace coming soon.
the last look is all about the layers – a lace maxi dress over the mock neck top, the striped tee to dress it down a little, a tweed jacket and over-the-knee boots! she looks amazing.
i’m really into our maxi skirts right now… they’re all i want to wear! i love how they allow you to be comfortable but still look put together and stylish. which of these is your favorite?
or the ruffled layers maxi skirt:
last week most of you, 35%, were digging the aviator jacket style!
Did you guys see the beautiful sky last night?
I have never experienced the Harvest moon before, and it was pretty magical.
After work last night I had a little test drive in the parking lot and had to push the break down to capture the magnificent sky that I could see through the side mirror, a deep orange glow bursting through soft grey clouds deserved to be captured on the i-phone to be kept safe in the nostalgic folder.
I wished I was laying in a corn field last night, way out in the middle of nowhere to dwell on the full evening but a crazy storm blew into Philly and swallowed up the view of the harvest moon.
However the early evening was pretty incredible!
