Good Friday

What a Good Friday! Had the day off so grabbed brunch with M at Alcove Cafe in Los Feliz. Mmmm red velvet cake. I'd love to have brunch here every (sunny) day. The outdoor patio overlooking the street is like a backyard garden--really tranquil and great for chatting whilst sipping your coffee, or maybe mimosas if the ocassion calls for it! BTW very stylish crowd here!

For some reason, the food at Alcove really hits me as colorful. Everyone's plate seemed fresh with vegies and colorfully assorted!

Trying to do some pattern mixing! Red stripes, black stripes, and black plaid.

  26. Stripes on stripes is really hard to make look simple but you have done it so easily.
    Usually it would look really fussy but you carry it off with ease.
    Gorgeous :)
