I live in wrap dresses, particularly diane von furstenberg wrap dresses. they are the easiest solution to looking chic with very little effort. saks fifth avenue and diane von furstenberg have put together this little wrap cheat sheet that taught me a thing or two.

On April 29th, Matwey and Alegría will open the doors to Tutuma Social Club, a new restaurant/music venue in mid-town Manhattan that combines upscale Perúvian tapas with the best in live contemporary Latin and Afro-Perúvian jazz every night (no cover!).
Main courses include arroz con mariscos (Peru’s take on paella made with cilantro rice), Tacu Tacu—a traditional “hangover” dish made from butter beans and rice topped with glazed pork ribs, and crispy pig’s ears. Sort of makes you want a hangover, doesn’t it?
Tutuma will open April 29th
164 East 56th Street (corner of 3rd Avenue)
with the trees budding and air warming up for spring, we're finally ready to put away those big winter reds and bring out the crisp summer whites. this year we're smitten with Chile's take on the same grape
keep these bottles in mind for pairing with spring's first crops of vegetables:
2006 Kingston Cariblanco Casablanca Sauvignon Blanc ($15) In addition to its bright citrus flavors and crisp acidity, this wine offers minerality and a silky texture (oceanwineandspirits.com).
2006 Matetic EQ San Antonio Sauvignon Blanc ($16) Warm nectarine notes and a welcome hint of smoke intensify on the palate and makes this a perfect alfresco party pick (wallywine.com).
2008 Casa Lapostolle Rapel Valley Sauvignon Blanc ($8) Tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and banana linger in this soft, value-priced bottle (pjwine.com).
2008 Montes Limited Selection Leyda Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc ($12) Intensely aromatic, this wine's aromas of clean linen (seriously) are followed by racy acidity and lemon-lime flavors; try it with ceviche (hitimewine.com).
