Here at the Karmic Kitchen, we get questions. Lots of questions. Have you ever made flan? Do you have a good use for the herb lemon balm? When is Dim Sum Sunday coming back? Why would anyone eat this? We try to answer these questions to the best of our abilities but sometimes you have to go to the source to get the good stuff. As it happens sometimes during our viewing of Top Chef, we tend to wander off point into areas that have nothing to do with food. For example, last week regular commenter Moi remarked how much she loved the dress Michelle Bernstein wore in the second half of the show.
(sorry about the picture quality, no good screen grab of the full dress)

Although she googled high and low, Moi could not find the designer of the dress. Well you know I couldn't let that beautiful dress languish in obscurity. So I did what any good basement dwelling blogger worth her sel de mer would do. I emailed her people.
It's good to have people. Because her people forwarded my email to Michelle and here is her answer.

"Tell her I bought it on consignment years ago and it's still one of my favorites. Unfortunately for me and her there are no tags in the dress sorry, but I am so happy she likes it!"

So there you are Moi, an answer. Not the one you were looking for but at least you can stop googling. Now please pardon me while I go make that photo the screen saver on my I-Pod Touch and bask in the warmth of Making Michy Happy.

No way! You actually emailed Michelle Bernstein's people to ask about that dress for me? Never mind that I can't buy it. Your effort alone on my fashion-adled self is worth my query. If there's anything else I can do to get you closer to Michy, let me know. Unless, you know, it entails my own restraining order.

Hell yes I emailed. It is a pretty dress. Not that I know a damn thing about fashion. But I do know that there are very few times I'd like to be Tom Colicchio. Surrounded by those three lovely ladies IS one of those times.

By the way, I think you were right, I think Andrea is wearing red crocs.

You are like the coolest person on the planet.

And if I had that photo as my screensaver I would never get anything done. But you have fun.

Awesome score, Shamy. You so rock.
