Here at the Lou, I usually chat about food and all of its fabulousness. Never have I written about fashion…until today.
This past weekend, the gals from Edit (Kara, Melina and Mea) all road-tripped from the other side of the state to put on a fashion trunk show extraordinaire. There were scarves, bags, dresses, tops and loads of jewelry, all with the colors and fashion for spring.
The Edit gals are the utmost of fashionistas- they always have a keen eye for what is trendy, cute and fabulous. And since most gals love shopping for clothing and jewelry, I figured it wouldn’t be too hard to persuade a few ladies to stop by for a look-see.
I may not be considered a fashionista, maybe more a foodista. I don't always wear the trendiest clothes but I can certainly dress a dining table with some tasty sips and nibbles. For the trunk show, I made five different appetizers, some inspired from Pinterest...
and a fav: Cool as a Cucumber, Hot as Wasabi Tuna Appetizer. These are easy little one bite yin-yang wonders! Since the tuna in this dish is raw, it is important to use high quality, sushi-grade tuna purchased on the same day you will be serving.
