Crazy About: Blanket Wraps

We love love LOVE Burberry's monogrammed blanket wraps. Such a chic way to keep warm. 
Although Cara's and Rosie's are our favorites, we've gathered some other versions as well.

Can't Wait For: Alexander Wang for H&M

There are so many high-low designer collaborations these days, it's hard to know when to get excited for them and when to pass them up - Altuzarra for Target, anyone?  Often, the attempts at translating high fashion to affordable prices fail, with many pieces looking cheap and of poor quality.  But we think the Alexander Wang line for H&M might actually be worth shopping - the man knows how to cut a t-shirt and when to keep pieces simple, and already frequently works with cotton and jersey fabrics, as well as solids and minimal embellishments.  Sadly these designs aren't the cheapest collaboration around, but if these photographs of the upcoming collection are any indication, we are excited to shop when the line comes out on November 6th.

Foodie Favorite: The Lamb Burger at Cafe Chez Marie

We love this French Moroccan bistro, its back patio is so quaint, you feel like you're in some tiny European village. As you are aware, we LOVE burgers. Love. So of course when we saw a lamb burger on the menu were were intrigued. Seasoned with Ras El Hanout and topped with aioli, harissa and lettuce on a brioche bun, we were not disappointed. Served with a side salad, we felt less guilty than if it were accompanied with pommes frites.

Their full menu is available on their site (Edith Piaf songs start playing when you visit the homepage, be forewarned...).
