Simple Style + Sushi

If you follow me on Twitter you know I was ranting about going to get some Sushi on last Friday!
I even tweeted and updated my Facebook status asking if anyone wanted to join me for Sushi. Nonetheless, I would have went by myself but being the chatter box that I am; I was up for some company.   

Whelp, nobody took me upon my offer until after talking to the Bestie on the phone she agreed to meet me at this Sushi Bar in Vinings called: Orient Express

I have been there a few times before for Hibachi Dinner but never have I dined on their Sushi side.

  I admire how the place is very well decorated…

  If you are in the Atlanta Area and you haven’t been to this lil spot please be sure to check them out you will not be disappointed! I already wanna go back! 

Aaayyyyeee... I was werrrking them chopsticks!

A closer look at my meal: Shrimp & Salmon Sushi

The Bestie working her chopsticks

A closer look at her meal... I can't remember what it was but it was spicy! Yup, I tried hers too.
It was Friday so I wore something relaxing... A Denim Dress w/ Flats! 
I always thought Denim Dresses were heavy and HOT! But to my surprise the denim was not all THICK! The dress was actually very cool and comfortable.    

Being that I am a lioness: "LEO QUEEN" 
When I 1st saw these earrings I immediately feel in love!!!! I purchased these over a month ago from a vendor friend of mine: Envy Ear Candi all of her accessories are unique and handmade.

What I Wore:

Jean Dress: Ross
Sandals: Payless
Earrings: Envy Ear Candi

I’m linking up with Cori over at It's My Taste for Trendy Tuesday; although, it's Wednesday... Better Late than Never right?


Note to You: Just over a year ago… The thought of eating Sushi was completely out of the question but thanks to my twitter friend Dani suggested that I give it a try and its be on ever since.
This was a reminder to NEVER judge anything on looks alone.
Have you ever tried something for the 1st time that you thought you wouldn’t like but surprisingly it was better than you initially thought it would be?

~ Until next time

Peace, Love, & Fashion




  1. Good times! I absolutely LOVE that chambray shirt dress you are rocking!

    1. Ohhhh.... thanks for the clarity! Chambray - that's the word I was seeking! :-)

  2. I love your dress...And with belt, perfection! I'm not a sushi person, but that looked good! Maybe sushi has evolved...

    1. I think the belt made it NOT look like a night gown… lol

      Yassss… give Sushi a try you would be surprised!

  3. Your hair is working for me! I love. I have always seen that train in Vinings and never knew what it was. I will have to take a trip in there. I'm not a huge fan of sushi. Some of it works for me but like you initially I was skeptical but I went with the right person and they steered me in the right direction.

  4. I love that dress I am not a fan of sushi but I may give it another try since I was a teenager when I last tried it.

  5. WOW those plates of sushi looks divine!!! Yum to the 10th power!! Great denim dress too!

  6. Beautiful look...and the earrings are interesting(in a very good way ) :)

  9. thanks for stopping by, happy to follow you back!

  10. Yay for Sushi time!! You know that is one of my FAVORITE meals :) You look cute and I love that belt. I'm glad that you and your bestie had a great time!


  11. I've always wanted to try that place. It's right by my dentist office. I'm suppose to meet with friends next week, so this may be our spot. Love your shirt dress.

  12. First of all, I may be a little late, but great job on the new blog header.
    Secondly, your dress and belt combo is something that I would wear in a heartbeat. In fact, I've been searching for a chambray dress like yours for awhile...and I lovelovelove stripes.
    Can I have your outfit? ;) (just kidding)

  13. i'm a leo too, so clearly i love the earrings :)

  14. I used to turn my nose up at sushi years ago as well. It taught me a valuable lesson to never say you don't like something before you even try it. Now I eat the entire ocean! lol
    Cute shirt dress, a great shape on you too.

  15. Girl I LOVE sushi! I've been recruiting folks to try out this cuisine for a while, lol. Your dress is too cute and I'm loving those earrings ma'am.

  16. That sushi looks delicious! Makes me want some right now :)
