The other day, a group of us went to lunch at Ippudo, since our friend Lucrecia was paying NYC a short visit. It was a bit of an inadvertent blogger lunch, with Lucrecia from Fashion Is Poison, her beau Jack, Joelle from The Owls Are Not What They Seem, Jason from Citizen Couture and Mimi from Brook&Lyn. It was my first time meeting Jack, Jason and Mimi, but we immediately had a great group dynamic - you wouldn't have known we weren't completely familiar with one another. I guess it helps when you already know each other's blogs:) Joelle was still recovering from food poisoning and I was unaware of this secret vegetarian ramen option (I got the noodle salad), but we still had a great time. Naturally, being so close to Momofuku Milk Bar, we had to make a stop for cookies and soft serve. Magic.
So, you all know that I'm the worst blogger ever and I forget to bring my camera most of the time. This was no different. I wasn't thinking like a blogger - I just wanted to catch up with my friends and meet some new ones. But luckily, we had a very talented street style photographer (Jason) on hand. Hopefully he'll put some photos up soon!

Makeup notes: MAC Pink Plaid lipstick, MAC blacktrack fluidline on eyes, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat on cheeks
Outfit note: I have quite a bit of leg before risking anything showing (I have an extremely short torso and long legs/thighs) - but when wearing short skirts and dresses, I wear matching hotpants underneath. That way, I don't have to worry about flashing anyone while walking up the stairs, or when a gust of wind comes by.
p.s. "All To All" has nothing to do with this post, but it has been in heavy rotation ever since the newest Broken Social Scene album came out. It's my summer song! You can give it a listen here.
