Stripe Hoodie Dress + Calafia Palo Alto Review

Dress: I have 2 options for you, and they’re both markdowns from $98 to $19-$24. It’s my holiday present to you! (And yes, I paid full price a few months ago. :-()

Shoes: I’v done both pumps and flats with this dress (no, not at the same time, smarty pants), and they both work really well. I wouldn’t recommend anything too ‘pretty’, like sandals, instead try something edgier. My top two recommendations are: Sperry’s two-eye boat shoes in mint leather are so cool. These pumps by BCBGeneration are neutral (beige), and still have a lot of character (love the laser cut out) – aaaaand they’re on sale!!

So, back to Calafia Review – this is a wonderful neighborhood spot (in Palo Altos California, across the street from Stanford University) specializing in farm-to-table California cuisine, serving organic, sustainable, healthy, delicious food. I like how extensive their vegetarian section is. I also appreciate their service – it can often get busy, and in spite of that, they’re pretty attentive without hovering (I’m not a fan of hoverers). My friend ordered Fiery Bottom BBQ Pork Bowl (it was delicious!). And I ordered the Guanciale Burrata Pizza with cured Pork cheek (it was really tasty). Here’s their menu page (if you haven’t been there already).


world’s smallest (and cutest) serving of Coke, for my Rum.
