NYC Date Night

image

image

The other night, in an effort to use a gift certificate & also to splurge a little - my better half and I ventured over to an iconic NY spot we’ve passed many times under the Williamsburg Bridge. This classic restaurant is in fact the only steakhouse in NYC to be awarded a Michelin Star. As we strolled into Peter Luger for our 9:45pm reservation (yes, the only time that was available!), we took in the history on the walls, well dressed waiters, wooden tabletops and glowing chandeliers.

After being seated right away, we dined on shrimp cocktail, creamed spinach and an enormous porterhouse for 2 (which boasts a hefty price tag). Don’t be fooled by the masculine vibe, Peter Luger is actually owned and run by a group of very powerful women. After being purchased at auction in 1950 from a loyal customer, Sol Forman enlisted his wife Marsha to select and purchase all the high quality beef. Today, Forman’s daughters & granddaughters still run the 126 year old establishment. All in all, a must have NYC experience! 

Fabulous finds for a night out in NY :

Texas Spotlight : Road Trip!

imageHowdy y’all!  

With the cooler weather rolling in & the weekend on the horizon, I wanted to share one of my favorite day trips south of Austin ——» If you’re from Texas, you’ve grown up with Shiner Bock Beer.  Annnd if you aren’t, with their Ruby Redbird launch in NYC a couple years ago … I’m sure you can check the sweet sip off your list too.  

But have you ever visited where that delicious refreshment is brewed?

A quick drive on 95 & you’re taking a step back in time to 1909 when the Bavarian founder, Kosmos Spoetzl, was perfecting his now famous recipe.  A very iconic house … not much has changed on the lawn the last hundred years!  Even though I’m a g-free gal myself, I highly recommend this adventure!  It’s such a picture perfect place & little gem!  My suggestion is bring a picnic to enjoy on the front grass under the big tree while you reflect on your tour & sip on your choice of succulent or savory brew-ha-ha.  This area has so many Texas treasures … I’m going to keep them to myself in this post, but I encourage you to make a day out of heading down to Spoetzl Brewery!  Many historic stops & tiny Texas towns to discover … Carve your own way back to ATX after you’ve relished in your lunchtime ale.  

Our  Top Ten “Take a Shiner Beer Break” Essentials :

  1. RIFLE + RADFORD Aubrey Bar Necklace - Silver + Aquamarine
  2. RIFLE + RADFORD Molly Horizontal Necklace - Silver + Sliced Agate
  3. J.Crew Silk Sleeveless Blouse - Heart Dot
  4. Dooney & Bourke Green Drawstring Handbag
  5. RIFLE + RADFORD Colette Bar Bracelet - Silver + Chrysoprase 
  6. RIFLE + RADFORD Harper Bar Bracelet - Silver + Turquoise 
  7. J.Crew Collection Geo Brocade Short
  8. RIFLE + RADFORD Petite Pavia Studs - Silver + Titanium Dipped Druzy
  9. RIFLE + RADFORD Penelope Agate Ring - Size 6 SALE
  10. J.Crew Allie Metallic Gladiator Sandals

ATX Date Night ——» View of the Colorado

imageimageGrab your date + head over to this hidden Eastside Austin gem ——»

Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile

Opening it’s doors just little over a month, the mastermind behind this modern ranch chic restaurant, Adam Jacoby, has truly hit a note of perfection.  Inspired by his family restaurant in Melvin, an underlying thread of his true Texas roots takes hold of chic city living at this superb spot overlooking the best patio view of the Colorado River.  The indoor bar with the great local beer + adorable deer head coasters feels like I am back in one of my favorite Chelsea haunts (It’s so well designed, but this is actually authentic!).  Walking out through the barn doors to the amazing back porch feels like you’ve waltzed upon a 1000 acre ranch in the middle of the Hill Country. Pleasantly confronted with a 180 view of a beautiful Texas sky + a part of Austin I’d never seen, we greatly enjoyed the sunset view.  Gazing over the water from the long wooden tables adorned with tasteful succulents + cactus whilst sipping on blue mason jars and munching on a super fresh charcuterie, we almost thought we’d made it to urban ranch heaven! The delicious train of amazing dishes + super service just added to the twilight sparkle. (The food is to die for … all sourced locally!)  This is a twist of Austin at its finest.  So, go go go before the frenzy begins … I assure you it will with this one …

For this Modern Ranch Date Night, we suggest snappy easy breezy attire with layers of fun colorful jewels:

Cheers!

Texas Spot : Driftwood Estate Winery

image

I recently had the pleasure of touring the hometown and true source of inspiration of the head lady behind R + R & one of my best gals, Melanie. A highlight on our adventure around Austin and the surrounding area was definitely Driftwood Estate Winery. During our memorable visit, we sat on a bluff, sipped our favorite Longhorn Red and enjoyed the majestic vista. The Hill Country has tons of other hidden gems which I won’t divulge in this post, but let’s just say it includes a little bit of two-steppin’ and a lot of delicious BBQ. 

An easy ensemble for a hot Texas day:

If you haven’t taken a trip down to this Lone Star State, I highly recommend it & be sure to have an expert tour guide with you like I did. 

Happy Monday!

Xx, C

Happy Friday! We are lovin’ the way this Amethyst Geode Pendant sparkles in the warm morning sunlight. Find dazzling Statement Jewels at rifleandradford.com. Cheers to a great weekend! #rifleandradford #amethyst #iolite

NYFW Inspiration

It’s that time of year again in NYC! Heels are hitting the pavement and models are hitting the runway. Here are some of our favorite looks, so far, from New York Fashion Week paired up with our favorite R + R jewels!

Oscar de la Renta sent quintessentially feminine and flattering frocks down the runway. His floral embroidered coat is absolutely to die for! We love it with a pair of Stella Chandelier Earrings + the Tallulah Bar Necklace

We can’t help but admire Theory’s luxurious simplicity. A well cut, white Theory dress is a wonderful palette for layering your R + R jewels. For example, we love it with the Ora Pendant Necklace, Petite Clementine Horizontal Necklace, Sydney Statement Solitaire Ring, + Petite Rosie Studs

For Spring ‘15, Tibi is all about fluidity and Asian + South American influences. One of the results is this breathtaking watercolor dress. The Luna Ocean Jasper Necklace is perfectly complementary, along with the Aven Single Drop Earrings + the Piper Statement Solitaire Ring.

Monique Lhuillier, an authority on all things evening wear, ventured deeper into the realm of daywear for her Spring ‘15 collection. Her pieces shimmer with iridescence and we R + R gals love a little sparkle! Some luminous jewels to go with a luminous Lhuillier: Eryn Horizontal Necklace, Anastasia Petite Coin Necklace, Petite Phoebe Studs, Verdia + Prehnite Nesting Rings

Lyn Devon’s models are pretty in pastel, paying homage to the glamorous sixties. We’d top off the pineapple print swing coat with a pair of Marguerite Studs + the Grace Teardrop Necklace

Trends We Love:

White Out

——> White is making an appearance all over New York Fashion Week. It’s refreshingly graceful and simple, as shown by Theory.

Structure Less

——> While we love a good tailored item, like Oscar de la Renta’s embroidered coat or Lyn Devon’s swing coat, we also noticed that some more loosely structured, flourishing outfits have made their way onto the runway. See: Tibi.

Pastel Getaway

——> Lyn Devon and Monique Lhuillier referenced the Bahamas and Bermuda, respectively in their collections. We love the rosy and peachy hues!

Happy Fashion Week!!

Xx, The R + R Ladies
