Brie, turkey, and raspberry jam sandwich

Glory. I added extra jam on top of mine.
Today I went grocery shopping with my mother and was excited to come home with a fresh ciabatta loaf and some brie cheese. Sandwich time. I had seen an episode of Giada at Home around Father's Day and it inspired me to create this sandwich. It's sweet and savory and delicious!

Two slices of bread
Brie cheese
Raspberry jam
Brown sugar
Olive oil
Sliced turkey

1. Rub olive oil on one side of each slice of bread
2. Add generous amount of cheese, jam, and a slice of turkey to bread.
3. Top with the other slice of bread and sprinkle with brown sugar
4. Cook on a pan (or in panini maker) until both sides are brown and crispy (bread gets a bit soggy from the jam but it's still good!)

CFDA Fashion Awards

Tommy Ton snapped some photos of the CFDA attendees and I really prefer these more candid photos he took to the usual stand-on-this-X and pose for a picture photos. I'm assuming that most people expect the best of the best when it comes to what people wear to the CFDA Fashion Awards since it is, after all, a fashion award ceremony. I thought most attendees looked exceptional. These are a few of my favorite photos:

Resort 2014: Alice and Olivia

Aren't these super wide, flowy pants from the Alice and Olivia resort collection awesome? I saw a pair from the gazillion Coachella photos and although I'm getting a little damn annoyed with the annual overindulgence of Coachella coverage regarding so-called "style", I did appreciate that particular pair of pants. 

Bonus points for the way the pants above are paired with a loose, striped sweater instead of a crocheted or fringe top and face paint. These pants win.

I'm also quite smitten with the dress below. I think it's because of the high neckline. Overall, the other looks were pretty standard, but still timeless- like this red skirt and polkadot top combo.
