Distinct Style at Morimoto


Jacket: Ryan Seacrest Distinction

Vibrant hues line the walls at Morimoto, a restaurant partnership between the Iron Chef and Stephen Starr. It’s quite the experience to indulge in a nine course Omakase tasting menu while the lights behind your date’s head change from intense red to opulent orange to cool blue. Briana and I stopped by just before Valentine’s Day (friend date!) to experience the Omakase meal. My favorite dish was a scallop accompanied with A LOT OF TRUFFLE. I love truffle. After dinner, and after most of our fellow diners left, we stuck around to shoot my dinner jacket by Ryan Seacrest Distinction. The velvet blazer with a satin shawl collar was perfectly suited for the luxurious evening. My all-dark outfit provided a blank canvas as the vibrant hues changed the interior of the room as well as the allure of my attire.

My Favorite Coat For Arctic Temperatures

Coat: Triple F.A.T. Goose

One of my favorite parts about winter is when I start breaking out my outerwear. This season I’m wearing the Triple F.A.T. Goose Chenega coat. It’s slogan “For Arctic Temperatures” held up… during the snow storm a couple weeks ago this fuzzy coat kept me super warm. It’s lined with goose which is one of the best and lightest insulators, it’s water-resistant and the hood is trimmed with coyote fur. DREAMY. One of the other neat features that I wish we would have taken a (probably awkward) photo of is the underarm zippers. Sometimes I unzip the armpits if I’m feeling a little sweaty… excellent zipper placement!

Fitted Suit in the French Quarter

Suit & Shoes: Primark | Watch: Shore Projects | Sunglasses: Givenchy

Continuing with my affinity for blue and black attire, during my trip to New Orleans I sported this suit for an evening out. Before dinner Briana and I explored the French Quarter stopping in Jackson Square. Isn’t the Saint Louis Cathedral gorgeous?! While snapping our photos we watched a couple pose for wedding photos in the garden. It was really a magical moment! Then we jetted over to Magazine Street for our dinner reservation at Shaya. Modern Israeli cuisine.. mmmmmmm yum. If you’re heading to NOLA definitely plan to stop there for dinner, but make a reservation a few days (or weeks) in advance. The place books up fast. We loved the hummus and meticulously crafted cocktail selection. After dinner we went back to the hotel and regrouped before heading out for some dancing.

Special thank you to Loews New Orleans for the generous hospitably. See my review on the property over on Wear We Went’s STAY section!

Into The Blue | Denim, Leather, Sweaters

Sweater: Distinction | Jacket: Andrew Marc | Jeans: Sebastian McCall | Shoes: Noah Waxman
Watch: Smart Turnout

Lately I’ve been gravitating towards navy. My closet has transitioned from a once very vibrant selection to a subdued color palette of mostly navy, black, gray and tan. I like it. Pieces are easy to piece together making getting ready in the morning fast. I could wear this blue leather jacket with this navy Ryan Seacreast Distinction sweater or switch it out for a black or gray top. The jeans fit like a glove. A darker wash, Sebastian McCall has quickly become my go-to denim brand. I mix and matched them with almost everything in my closet. I can’t forget the shoes! While these boots aren’t one of the four hues mentioned above, green is my favorite color and an honorary neutral in my style book. This look can easily be dressed up by switching the boots for a sleek shoe like Noah’s Odeon oxford. How would you interpret this outfit?

New Year New York

Wearing a Andrew Marc coat and Hershel backpack in NYC.

Every NYE I sit down and reflect on the year. After making a list of the year’s top accomplishments today, I am beyond pleased and thankful for all of the support from my readers. This year was a dream come true, over and over again! From kicking off 2015 by taking a flight to Beijing to visit one of my best friends (that’s you – Mollie Snyder!) for a project with LifeStyle China to producing the second Shop Like A Local Retail & Style Guide with Kimpton Hotels to launching WearWeWent.com, leading to more travel with Mollie, so many memories were created. I am looking forward to a few new projects in the pipeline for 2016 and a pretty major announcement in March. Until next year… be safe, don’t drink and drive and hopefully you will be dancing tonight like me!

Cheers, IMC
