Fifi: The PassMonday, August 26, 2013
Oh, hello. I'm Fifi.
When Vy asked if I wanted to do a guest blog on The Tasteful, I quickly and happily agreed. I admire Vy's blogging prowess and her posts are always delicious, cheerful, and fun. Much like Vy herself (that’s right, delicious).
I have a blog of my own, but it isn't food focused. Despite this, I knew I had the perfect subject for an entry for The Tasteful--The Pass.
The Pass & Provisions is a two-in-one restaurant in Houston from chefs Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegel-Gardner. The PASS restaurant offers a prix fixe 5- or 8-course while Provisions offers more casual options that you order from the menu. I had eaten at Provisions last year, but had yet to try The Pass. The Pass has recently gotten some great accolades, so it was the perfect time to finally have a taste. The boyfriend and I accompanied Issa from We Wear Things (another blog that I contribute to. BLOGS FOR EVERYONE.) and her husband for dinner there to celebrate his belated birthday.
Since I am predominantly a style blogger I thought I’d include some photos of what I wore that night. A basic black jersey dress with a not-so-basic slit and asymmetrical hem.
I wanted to highlight my “headgear” (i.e. piercings), so up went the hair into a topknot. I thought the simplicity of the dress would be a good way to also highlight the heels. Heels I may or may not have snuck away from hosting a July 4 party to purchase...HAHAHAH sad.
