The Know: Agent Provocateur

Ok ladies... [and gents] if you have not heard of Agent Provocateur, you should really look into it.  Their intimates and lingerie are so sexy, a bit provocative but with class! 

Similar to Chantal Thomas, Agent Provocateur [however, a British brand] makes really great pieces for all occasions.  Unlike the cutesy lingerie you see at Vicky's [Victoria Secret], their goal is to create pieces that are fashion forward.  You definitely will see it in the collection that they have now for Spring Summer 2012.  Go to their website and take a peak.

The Look: Beat It



Girls night out and bon voyage party for my besty.  She's heading to beach and sunshine of Santa Monica.  Will miss you Ms. Later!  But, kinda glad I will have a place stay when I head down to L.A.!

Continuing the love of flatforms, put on my TBA Kine Saturday night for an evening of standing, dancing, and jumping fun.  Wore the shoe with my beatlejuice skirt and a T.

Food: Nuvrei Patisserie & Cafe

After waiting for them to open their cafe the last year, we decided to stop in Nuvrei for a try on Sunday Funday.  

Of course, my only reason to head there was for their macaroons.  A co-worker had purchased them for us and I nearly fell out of my seat when I took my first bite.  It was so delicious!  Of course, nothing could beat the unrivaled taste of Ladurée but hey this is Portland, not Paris.  It is still quite delicious and is as airy as those we had in France.

They also have an extensive collection of baked goods as well as sandwiches.  If you're in Portland, be sure to stop in and try some.

P.S. I did asked if they make beignets.  Unfortunately, the location does not have room for deep frying but their future location will!  Can't wait.  I am in need of some really good beignets.
