Poached Eggs with Garlicky Kale

June 26, 2014


People say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And while the saying is a little tired, it couldn't be more true. Breakfast gives you energy, stamina and leaves you feeling full to power through until lunch. In these busy times, there's lots of yogurts, granolas and bagels. But when you've got time for a luxurious breakfast, give this dish a try. Eggs for protein, kale for your veggie intake and bread because, well, bread.

  • 1 slice wheat bread
  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 egg
  • splash of vinegar


  1. Fill a medium-sized pot with water and add in splash of vinegar. Heat over high heat until boiling.
  2. While the water boils, put your piece of bread in the toaster.
  3. Add butter to a small skillet over medium. Once the butter has melted, add in the garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in the kale and toss to coat with butter and garlic. Saute 2 to 3 minutes until wilted.
  4. Place the kale on top of the toast.
  5. Crack egg into a shallow bowl or ramekin. Once the water has boiled in your pot, use a slotted spoon and start swirling the water to form a whirlpool. Add the egg to the center of the whirlpool, give it a gentle stir and then cover the pot and remove it from the heat.
  6. Set a timer for 3 minutes. Once the timer goes off, use the slotted spoon to carefully remove the egg, draining off excess water. Lay the egg gently on top of the kale and toast.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

October 14, 2020

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

Size Chart

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
