Pearl necklace: Wedding gift
Flower hair clip used as a brooch: Mexico Street vendor (Look here for other ways to wear it)
Lace shorts: Forever 21
Shoes: ALDO (Steve Madden has an enitre collection dedicated to neutrals!)
My justification for buying these shorts was their versatility. So here begins my love affair with these lace shorts. Since, I am a fan of neutrals, I had to kick start them in a feminine outfit laced with pearls and flowers.
I wore these pretty lace shorts to Tapas Papa Frita, a Spanish Tapas Bar in the surburbs of Phoenix. This bar supports local flamenco dancers, and, makes it easy for you to support them by offering an extensive tapas and Spanish wine menu. While they do serve entrees, it is their small plates - the Tapas, that people keep coming back for. Close your eyes, point at anything on the menu - you will be more than happy with your choice!
The flamenco performance
We started with shrimp bathed in garlic & pepper olive oil and shamelessly mopped the plate with the warm bread. It would have been a shame if we did not do justice to every ounce of that garlicy gooeyness. The Patas Aiolo Verde, potato wedges spiked with cilantro and garlic puree and topped with bits of ham was gone before the waiter left.
A Spanish meal would be incomplete wihout, at least, a spoonful of Paella. None of us was satisfied with a spoonful, and, every grain was scratched off the pan! As much as we wanted to be good and skip the dessert, the Churros were longingly staring at us, from the menu, and of course we are a kind lot!
The Churros and Tapas deserve an entire post (which I am working on) which will be the beginning of posts dedicated to our food chronicles. Soon there will be more calories on Wardrobe Menu :)
