Candy For Lunch


Houston is the most ethnically diverse city in America.Houston is also home to over 10,000 restaurants, which makes it the perfect place to be for lunch, dinner and everything in between. The food choices in Houston represent more than 70 countries and American regions.


I asked Dana to join me for brunch at La Table, a multi-level destination housing a French-American restaurant, bar and bakery.


To rival the uniqueness of this restaurant with fashion, Dana and I coordinated in dresses called Candy Bottle, from renowned Japanese brand, Metamorphose.


This brilliant brand originated in Osaka, Japan and the dresses are designed by Taira Chinatsu, the Chief Designer at Metamorphose.


To start off, we shared La Table’s Orange Blossom Brioche French Toast made with Almond Crust, Whipped Cream and Berries. Can I just say AMAZING? It was exactly so.


When I asked Designer Taira Chinatsu why she wanted to create the Candy Bottle print, she explained the design is inspired by colorful candy shops from the West, and everyone loves candy!

My arm candy is the Louis Vuitton Rose Ballerine Brea MM


For dessert, we tried the Raspberry Tart, with pistachio cream and candied pistachio. Delightful!

Dana‘s hat is also from Metamorphose and matched perfectly with her outfit.

    I really love the colors they released for this set. That green is so pleasing to the eye! The colors of the candy jars pop so nicely too.

    The food was incredibly tasty! I had such a wonderful time! One of the reasons I love Houston is its wide range of food! Out of the brands I own so far I have to say Metamorphose is one of the easiest/most comfortable to wear. This dress in particular is wonderful – the fabric was light and airy and the print detailed – I didn’t notice at first but the candy bottles were named and I loved reading them. This dress, I felt, could be with or without the cardigan – it is very nice either way and it is nice to have options when traveling around Houston in the summer.
