Military Endeavour

   I don’t know where to start, there is too much to tell you about. Let me first begin introducing the occasion of my outing, which happened on the eve of my best friend Tala’s birthday. There were two things special about that evening: one, Tala is an amazing person and spending time with her is very interesting, amusing always, two, we toured the whole Gemmayze street , a very solicited area in downtown Beirut (the capital) where you have all these restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs. We started our night at The Gathering restaurant, a cozy vast place –considering every other restaurant there where you feel like you’re just 2 steps away from the street—secluded away from prying eyes. There, you feel like you have boarded another world—or country, not Lebanon at least, maybe Italy where you

have this big square and you find restaurants circling it. The Gathering is similar like that, it has 3 little houses, one for steak, another for Italian and one more “Bar √† vin”, surrounding a common terrace. Besides the fact that the place looks so charming the food is also exceptional—I didn’t want to leave a crumb in my plate even though I was fairly well overfull. We continued our night then at the renowned reference of food luxury and fine √©picerie, Fauchon Paris, where we enjoyed a dessert worthy of the maison’s reputation. Finally yet importantly, we carried on to Treesome, an awesome pub, to celebrate and drink to Tala’s step in the adult world.

Wardrobe-wise, unexpectedly yet in anticipation for the first rain drops, I was happy to show off my military pattern Current Elliot pants finally, which I wore along a white Zara shirt, Jimmy Choo x H&M leather jacket, DKNY leather peep toe heels, and bracelet plus necklace from Anna Dello Russo’s recent line for H&M.
