Metallic and Glitter

It's been crazy at work and I have been really busy over the holidays to upload photos.
This was from my annual Christmas gift exchange + dinner with some of my girlfriends.
We had great French food and a good time at Boneta in Gastown.

The theme was supposed to be an interpretation of black + gold but not everyone listened. Oh well, I tried. 
Top: Club Monaco sheer long sleeve top over Juicy Couture tank
Bottom: Club Monaco beaded silk skirt (it weighs a ton with all the beads)
Jewel: Bulgari, vintage, Tiffany, David Yurman
Bag: YSL Belle Du Jour clutch in black patent
Shoes: Christian Louboutin No Prive black glittered platform slingback 120mm
Nails: Ciate in Ladylike Lux with blue crystal gem from Michaels

Mike and I ordered from the "Table d'Hote Dinner" menu.
$45 for 3 courses. And they were all yummy!

My first course: A salad made up of duck liver parfait, watercress, turnip, duck croquette cubes and poached egg.

Mike's first course: Beef carpaccio, quail egg, arugula, pecorino, walnuts & sherry vinaigrette.

Mike's second course: Duck breast over quinoa with sausage, brussel sprouts and mushroom sides.

I have to learn or steal the quinoa recipe from them. There was so much flavour infused in the quinoa, one that I can never duplicate at home.

My second course: Ling cod, cherry tomatoes and corn salad with lobster sauce foam and puree. 
Liz and I ordered the same thing. We were not big fans of the foam but did love it enough to utilize it all.

Mike's dessert: Ricotta & lemon curd tarte, creme anglaise & vanilla ice cream.

DSC01565
My dessert: Lemon scented pavlova, sour cherry compote, pistachio mousse & brittle topping.
I loved the sour cherry sauce and pavlova but the pistachio mousse was just too rich and creamy for my liking.

Stay tuned for my next post. I finally wrote another "How To" post. This one is all about Herm├Ęs handbags. 
Hockey is back on so that means bf is occupied and I have more time to shop! :) 
Have an awesome weekend and thanks for visiting!
