Elaina Vazquez, founder of Chicago's Boutique Bites Fine Catering, couldn't decide which of her two loves—fashion or food—to put first. So, she chose both. Vazquez's cute series of "Fashion to Fork" videos give tips on how to whip up all kinds of sips and snacks, and how to dress the part for serving the item du jour.
The latest video, dubbed "Tailored & Timeless" gives the lowdown on how to host a brunch that appeals to both guys and girls. Cue the bloody mary bar, leather-bound drink tags, and the outfit: floral-print pants paired with a classic white shirt. Peep the video here, and let the dreams of the weekend begin. (Yes, we know it's Monday, but we're planners when it comes to spiked tomato juice.)
