I know the orange scarf is an unusual combination, but this outfit needed… something. I am looking into getting some more scarves, ones that are longer but more narrow. Think they will be a great alternative to these thicker pashminas and shawls for the warmer months. Any suggestions on places to look? I always have the best luck in the lesser known stores and even stands at markets, festies and such but don't really have the schedule right now to go shopping to those sorts of places. Maybe that is Life telling me to hold off for now… I really haven't had much of an urge to go shopping lately anyway, just would like some new accessories 🙂
However I have done a teensy bit of shopping – got some black patent peeptoe heels from BCBGirls for Spring (gosh that brand feels custom made for my fat little piggies), my new purse from Banana/eBay, and I finally saved up to get something I have really really wanted for a very long time…. a food processor! I know, it's not clothing but I have a passion for cooking as I do for fashion. Not so much fancy recipes, but I really like getting creative in my kitchen and trying out new things. Now I can make a ton more things like my own hummus, salsa and try out a vegetarian version of the fabulous potato-leek soup I used to make with my now-defunct immersion blender! (and I got the classic Cuisinart one – no need for super fancy or super big at this stage of my life…. this baby is already bigger than my itty-bitty kitchen counter!)
Any suggestions on fabu healthy vegetarian dishes that require me to take my Cuisinart out for a spin? Nothing phases me – love it spicy, love it savory, love the lesser known, have plenty of international markets around so can often find more obscure ingredients… bring it on! 🙂
