Big Bad Wolf

There's nothing like good company, easy music, and 
yummy food and drinks to soothe stressed, frazzled nerves.
So, since Nicco and I both just came out of 
our respective exam weeks (my midterms, his finals)
he suggested that we try out this restaurant called
the Big Bad Wolf at the corner of 5th Avenue and McKinley Road at the Fort.

He even suggested that we wear matching outfits and have 
a little ootd photoshoot. 
I know, he's just sweet that way. <3


I love vertically striped dresses because it can make anyone look taller and thinner!
The X detail on the chest gave the dress just the right accent.

Leather jackets are perfect giving any outfit that edgy touch!
Sometimes, I wish that we had a colder climate so I can wear more jackets and coats like this.
This jacket certainly would look good with most of the outfits I have!

The leather bag with chain straps and studded ankle boots completed my outfit!

Outfit details:
Striped black and white dress, H&M
Leather jacket, TOPSHOP
Black leather bag, STEVE MADDEN
Studded ankle boots, NINE WEST 
Lock and key pendant and necklace, TIFFANY & CO.

Nicco wore an all black outfit (because he's badass like that) and a leather jacket.

Leather jackets look absolutely good anyone, especially on men!
As I said, it can make any outfit, no matter how simple, look edgier! 

Nicco's outfit details:
Black shirt and brown combat boots, TOPMAN
Black jeans, HOT TOPIC
Leather jacket, ZARA

It was such a relaxing afternoon because it took our minds off the things we've been busy with lately
 and gave us time to just chill and hangout together. 

I love how cozy and homey it was at the Big Bad Wolf, 
where they mostly played bossa nova and light rock music and had very comfortable furniture. 
It's a good place to relax, eat, drink and catch up with friends.

There was also an exhibit held at that restaurant that day
featuring artists, Oz Mendoza and Donna Tan.Look at these stunning pictures.

We just had coffee and a few beers with our friends there 
but since we were kind of lazy to move somewhere else, 
we decided to try out the food and have dinner there instead. 
Too bad though that I was on a very strict vegetable and no-carb diet 
so I wasn't able to try the main courses that they had, 
which according to our friends, were really good!

I had the Pesto-rubbed Chicken Salad (P220) which was yummy 
except that it had a little too much onions. 

Nicco loved the Poached Egg Carbonara (P295) and 
says that it had a generous amount of truffle oil (his favorite) in it.

If you guys are looking for a place to relax, study, work, or just cozy place to
hang out with your friends, 
the Big Bad Wolf is a really good place for that!
 It's not too crowded, not too noisy, and they have a wide selection of food 
and drinks, which I have yet to try!
