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!

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

Steps:
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.
