Truly, nothing feels better than settling down for a cozy evening at home after a long day taking the streets of Providence in glorious vintage inspired garb. Give that comfy evening of yours some zest by playing some of your favorite classic background tunes and cooking a meal using a recipe from one 100+ of the most rad and inspiring women in food, featured in The Cherry bombe Cookbook by Kerry Diamond & Claudia Wu, pictured below.
At a first glance, the designer in me was thrilled by this cookbook, because – hello, look at the cleanliness and simplicity of this lush color palette. The design remains consistent throughout, featuring carefully-constructed food photography in multiple hues of pink and pastel.
Fortunately, the badass Italian lady chef in me was just as pleased as my inner-designer upon seeing culinary trailblazers such as Nigella Lawson, Padma Lakshmi, and Karlie Kloss (I didn’t even know she cooked!) among the featured writers. There is a massive range of recipes and stories packed into 244 pages of pure loveliness.
But wait, there’s more. Let’s talk about my outfit that I was wearing in the aforementioned strut across the Downtown Providence.
We redheads (natural and artificial), should all understand the importance the perfect green article of clothing – red and green are opposites on the color wheel, meaning that they are complimentary, or, in simpler terms, make each other POP! The Clara Top from Voodoo Vixen is glorious in every way. Aside from its color, The Clara has a built-in neck tie, features a unique half sleeve, and its neckline falls in the *perfect* spot. Wearing this top, newly stocked by the folks here at Queen of Hearts and Modern Love, makes me feel like a glamorous 1960s Cherry Bombe whether I’m out on the town or getting cozy in the kitchen.

We think of things as predictable but with this dress it screams elegance. Wearing it made me feel like an editor of a magazine in New York. You know those ladies who walk with their head higher than their heels? Yeah those ladies, it almost felt like I was the Nubian queen. Nobody could touch me. You hear cars, the sound of people’s footsteps (click clack click clack), and cell phone conversations about how their assistant is late with their coffee. This was only a dream not reality. Taxi! It was better than that. I felt like I was walking to a business meeting to present about self expression and how fashion makes me feel in control. Self control is power of choice and choosing to wear this wonderful vibrant green dress to express sophisticated yet a feminine touch that will look great on all women made me feel powerful. Stop Staring! You can’t take the feel of such a vintage outbreak away from me. Ladies, take it from me. I am the fashion queen.
