take me anywhere; i don't care

March 15, 2009

Yesterday was James and I's one year anniversary! We went to Melting Pot, a favorite restaurant of ours, and took some pictures on his camera afterwards.


I wanted to dress up just for the spirit of the day and because it was pi day ( = 3.14159265).



I'm wearing a piece of fabric that I strategically wrapped into a dress. I promised a DIY on this, but I apologize that I'm such a lazy person. The belt is vintage RJ Graziano.

Here's some food porn from Melting Pot - ugh, to die for. Take that Camille





For those that have never heard or been to Melting Pot, it is pretty much just a very intimate, overpriced fondue restaurant. I personally just go for the appetizer (of different flavored cheese) and the dessert. The entrée is a plate of raw meat, that you dip into a boiling brother consisting of wine, garlic, other herbs and vegetables, and after it cooks, you dip it into the various dips they have set up for you.
