Haru : First Date
6 years ago, on a hot June evening, I was introduced to my best friend and husband Shiraz.
It was a beautiful Sunday and I had spent the majority of my day on Governor's Island at the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo match. The Polo match is a chance for New Yorkers dress up in their very hippest.
Not to be outdone, I decided to wear a lavender Catherine Malendrino with Louboutins and a Chanel Bag.
For my date that followed the match, my bestie Anjie decided I HAD to change. I can still hear her laughing that I would "scare" a man away with my ruffles. She styled me in her black sweater dress, made me leave my bag at her home and wear flip flops.
We met Shiraz on Irving Place and took a short walk before the girls decided to make themselves scarce. Since I was feeling peckish (which I always am) and we couldn't stop talking, Shiraz recommended a quick bite at Haru. And that was the first date for our Happily Ever After.
