My Lastest Clandestine

Now about that date. Let's use the word clandestine instead shall we? Date and squire scare the hell out of me! And it's always hell trying to pick out what you what to wear,no? While I had met my suitor once before, I was still a bit wound up, so I had a cock-a-tail. Then I decided to go with my slim fit Hudson's, with a v-neck sweater and a loosely tied tie. I love ties, and have been known to wear them with tie shirts already! But I did a fitted buttoned down from J.Crew.......a loose traditional look, with a touch of urban.......

Since the warmth left us all of a sudden and decided to get chilly, and rainy, I got to wear the new investment, my Burberry trench for the evening......

and my new Billy Reid's completed the look for the evening......

Then it was off in the townecar to his place, where we had very nice conversation and another cock-a-tail. One of my luxuries is eating out, I just plain love it. So when I was told we were going to Buddakan, a Stephen Starr joint, I was overly excited, another off my bucket list. He may have thought me nuts when I said I was a Starr groupie!

Still one of the favorite restaurants in Philadelphia, Stephen Starr's "gem" in Old City serves up delicious large portions of some of the best Asian fusion dishes around. With such mainstays as tuna, lobster and calamari salad, Buddakan improves upon the standards and adds creative twists such as, wasabi tuna pizza, which I got, angry lobster, and a crispy calamari salad with ginger dressing. They even had Sake Flights, which you guessed, I ordered. And I had no idea warm sake hit one so hard!!! The snow pea ravioli I got was also out of this world! The place itself is yet, another Stephen Starr masterpiece! The place is breathtaking, and seemed a hot spot, while sitting at the 24-seat, self-lit communal table. At the center of the room sitting just below the bar and the room's focal point, was giant Buddha! The long table allows for a fun dining experience,whether chatting with your friends or getting acquainted with your "neighbors," it's fun to be part of the room's "main event."

So with a handsome date, the ambient lighting, and the wonderful food, it all conspired to make for a evening of enchantment. We ordered dessert to go and had it at his place followed by a nightcap. I'd be remiss if I didn't say I was a little smitten. Now, you didn't really think I was going to kiss and tell did you? Tootles!

  6. My oh my Mistress B! Look how handsome is thee! You really know how to make a girls heart flutter ;) While a great pair jeans (especially ones filled out as well as yours) can make a man I have to say the shoes & coat did it for me. Without them, well you'd still be a dish just without the cherry on top. I hope your friend realizes what a lucky man he is. The restaurant looks divine, as does the food. I don't eat fish but it still looks delicious. Oh FYI... YES I EXPECT YOU TO KISS AND TELL, AND....WELL EVERYTHING AND TELL! A girls gotta get her kicks somewhere! I'm just a boring old housewife from middle America, help a mama out ;)

    Glad you had a nice time Doll

    2. I understand the Mistress is fond of taking inseam measurments, so watch out! She knows her stuff though..... about clothing I mean. The sex thing I hear is street hearsay.

  13. I have always said your cute, but you have always amazed me by the transformation into drag. You make me sick that you have double beauty.

  14. You look so urban and put together, yet very relaxed! I just bought my first pair of Hudsons and may never go back! They are fitted, and suprisingly comfortable. Suzi loves them too. The Burberry trench looks great with evrything. I love your mix of textures like the belt and then the tradional pattern of the jacket. I love clothes, and I always get asked if I'm gay!!!!! I sometimes tell people that suzi is my fag hag! Great post, lets see more clothes post!!!!!

  15. GREAT POST!!! You look like someone I'd be glad to go out with. So many guys just don't take pride any more what they wear out on dates. And after that dinner did you do your best Madame Butterfly during" pillow talk"?

  16. Wow. You look uber impressive! I’m studing this, and will begin to re-build my wardrobe for sure. You must enjoy your job. I would love to see you do more post on this, to see what you put together. I always enjoy your drag and lifestyle post too, so keep it up, the posts that is!

  18. Ohhhhhh, lets go on a date!!!!! You look great! Sounds like you had a good time.I think one thing that can be added to this post, is good underwear. If it looks old you need to throw it out. I mean everything from, wife beaters to boxers to socks. A gentleman should get at least 7 new pairs of under wear and socks every 6 months. That way u will at least have some for every day of the week.

    1. Oh Midnight Magpie will you please explain this to the Sailor! He swears the older and tattier they are the better the boxer briefs are! I once got yelled at for tossing a pair with holes in them!! At least he lets me get him new under shirts & socks every other month.
