Person of Interest. Feature Moment of the Week: Little Tokyo crosses the Big Pond


(all garment pieces + shoes + hat  local Tokyo boutiques, fleur de lis pendant random New Orleans shop)

Randomly enjoying my fix of toro & sea urchin at my fave sushi restaurant, walks in this ginormous glow of energy. Politely smiling and making eye contact with all the service workers you can't help but stare. There was something about her..something indeed. Was it her confidence? Unique sense of style? Definitely all the above.
It's been quite sometime since I've personally encountered someone with such natural, angelic looks and effortless style + grace to match. Immediately I envisioned this Japanese exotic beauty frolicking along the Thames River on a hot British summer day. Somewhat reminiscent of a modern day character straight out of Disney's,"Mary Poppins". Sweet. Flirty. Playful. Definitely always refreshing to see someone not only physically beautiful but just equally owning a unique sense of style. Kudos to this refined Possessionista!
Here's to your Feature Moment!

Until next time...
Peace + LOVE + Fashion

**Pardon the fuzziness & poor quality of the images but I only had my iPhone to capture her. Regretting changing purses this day & leaving my camera in that one.**

A Sunday Kind of Love Affair.

(Displayed are some of Degas' infamous paintings. Some say he's the founder of Impressionism. His ability to capture the complexity of human motion was absolutely mind boggling. Hence, a majority of his portraits are depicting "scenes of life" occurring in a Parisian atmosphere. Still to this day, the ballet series continues its increase in popularity.)

(Alcee Fortier Park located directly across the street from the restaurant. Local artists display sculptures here.)

For as long as I am able to recall, Sunday has always been my favorite day of the week. The beginning of new,exciting things is the way I like to look at it. A day set aside for quality time with family, time to relax, gather yourself together from a rough weekend and of course, brunch! Any excuse to have a lazy day. 
One of my favorite places to dine at for this meal would be this cozy, little cottage called, Cafe Degas. Oh how I look forward to their menu & specials for that week! Living in New Orleans where there are an abundance of the many options and as equally delicious food makes it that much  more conflicting on where to dine.
Personally, this has never been an issue. Aside from the service, menu selections, location & ambiance; history & culture is conveyed throughout when setting foot through those wooden doors. This French bistro meets European style dining, restaurateur Jacques Soulas & Jerry Edgar partnered up to pay homage to the infamous French artist, Edgar Degas; whom was rumored to have stayed for a period of time on Esplanade Avenue not far from the restaurant's location. Located in the heart of the historic Faubourg St. John neighborhood, you'll discover classic French dishes with a modern twist. It's everything you've envisioned it to be & so much more. Picture-esque setting & scenery. A tree sprouting inside the middle of the restaurant. Murmuring fountain. Consistently alive. Yet, a sense of calm,serene feeling comes over you as if you're dining at an authentic French countryside cafe. Everything seems to move at a slower pace & you truly get a chance to enjoy your meal. Very unusual these days to the many of us always on the go. 
C'est vraiment une experience et un doit essayer!
(It truly is an experience and a must try!)
