Thompson & Princeby Elizabeth Jaime posted at November 28th, 2011
For more than two years, I’ve been using In Between Seams as my creative outlet but, as life changes and as we grow, there comes a time for one to mature and move on to something new. And so, I’m moving my words and pictures to my newest blog, Thompson & Prince. Please join me there if you’d like.
Cakes And Dinnersby Elizabeth Jaime posted at November 7th, 2011
More than a month ago–maybe even two month ago–Bjorn and Christie hosted a dinner for Bjorn’s parents who were in town. Excited to try out a new recipe, I made this chocolate peanut butter cake. I had originally seen the recipe on Sprout & Pea who posted a vegan version of the cake, however, wanting to indulge in all the bad things, I decided to make the non-vegan version. It was sooo good and really fun to make. If you’re interested in baking this week, I highly recommend giving this recipe a shot.
Some pictures from the dinner party…

Stuckby Elizabeth Jaime posted at October 30th, 2011
I found myself stuck in New Jersey this weekend after that massive Nor’easter paid us a way too-early visit. Regardless of the fact that I was stuck, with no way to return, and without power, I sure do love the snow.
The Past Few Weeksby Elizabeth Jaime posted at October 23rd, 2011
I know. It’s been ages since I’ve posted. I hope you’ll forgive me. And if not, can we at least still be friends? School and my recently acquired (awesome) job has kept me far far away from In Between Seams and that makes me really sad. Last thing I want to do is stray away from what I love to do most! I can’t promise constant posting. But, I do promise to try my best! Here’s what I’ve been up to the past few weeks.
A camping trip filled with smores, invisible bears (I know you were there, bears!), and lots of heart-parts(more on that later!)
I made fresh pasta for the first time ever for above dinner party. It was a hit. I think so at least.
My mom and her fiance came into town. Nicholas and I took them to eat at Le Pain Quotidien, Occupy Wall Street, Bloomingdales, and local restaurants.
Walked around lower lower lower Manhattan for the first time ever.
Bought a pair of blue velvet flats which I loooove. ANDD…….
Cut my hair REALLY short. Thoughts?

Apple Festivalby Elizabeth Jaime posted at September 19th, 2011
With the recent chill that has descended upon Manhattan, I was super excited to attend this years Apple Festival which is held down the street from my apartment on Orchard Street. The festival actually commemorates the fact that the Lower East Side used to be an Apple Orchard Farm owned by a French man named Delancey. Now you know why we have Orchard and Delancey Street!
Nicholas, Jennifer, and I walked over to the festival which definitely had more people this year than last. After taking a look at all the different apple creations local vendors could come up with, I made my way to Red Jacket Orchard’s stand where they were selling some freshly picked apples. I bought one Honeycrisp to enjoy for myself and six of another apple to make an Apple Crumble!
More on my apple crumble coming soon! x
A Giveaway!by Elizabeth Jaime posted at September 15th, 2011
Bucco Capensis was nice enough to send me some great Belgian slippers that are really everywhere now. As much as I’d love to have three pairs all to myself, I decided I would give away one pair on my blog. This specific pair I am giving away, as you can see, has a zebra pattern. No real zebras were hurt in the making of these shoes though.
The shoes are a size eight (sorry if you’re not that size!) To enter, just comment on this post and follow me on GoogleReader, and follow Bucco on Facebook for updates! If you’re already following me on GoogleReader, then follow me on Bloglovin or something. Figure it out! Ha. A winner will be announced in two weeks! Good luck!
UPDATE: Lauren Leyva is the winner of the contest! Thanks for playing.
Sam Friendby Elizabeth Jaime posted at September 15th, 2011
Today, I’d like to share with you some music. I have a friend, Sam Friend, who I’ve known for some time now and who plays/sings/performs some great tunes. I won’t go all Pitchfork on you guys and comment on the melodies and high notes but, I just hope that his music will make you feel as good as it makes me feel.

HONOR SS12by Elizabeth Jaime posted at September 14th, 2011
Firstly, let me apologize for my absence. For the first time in my life, I’m actually getting paid to write/ do things and am not just receiving “school credit”! That first step from interning to actually making money is exciting but quite stressful! Between school and my new freelancing work, I’ve found myself with little time for my most prized possession–my blog. However, today is the first day in the past week that I have nowhere to be. And, while I still have some school work/writing to do, I told myself I would update my blog!
As most of you know, it’s fashion week here in New York. Besides crowded 1 trains and non-existent empty cabs, there is actually some cool clothes to be looked at. On Saturday, I attended Honor’s Spring 2012 show. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before but Nicholas (my boyfriend!) is a film producer and assistant director. He teamed up with our neighbor, producer/director H.Spencer Young, and a bunch of other people to create a short film of Honor’s runway show and current collection. So, needless to say, I wanted to check out all the action. What I saw was one of the most beautiful collections I’ve seen in a while. No, really. If you didn’t already know this about me, I love really feminine, dainty clothing and this collection was just that. Inspired by a photo of Catherine Deneuve (pictured below) on her wedding day, all the pieces looked like something I’d love to wear every day of my life.
Here are some photos of the collection. Hope you love it as much as I do!
I also write for Lovely and Fashion Edits. Please check out this week’s posts!

Please Excuse…by Elizabeth Jaime posted at August 28th, 2011
My absence! I’ve been visiting in Miami for the past two weeks and was suppose to be home today. However, a little hurricane called Irene has prohibited me from doing so! Once I get back on Tuesday, things will be in full swing! Be safe! x

More From Parisby Elizabeth Jaime posted at August 19th, 2011
Père Lachaiseby Elizabeth Jaime posted at August 18th, 2011
One day in Paris, Nicholas and I decided to take a bus back to where we were staying. I was feeling super lazy and didn’t want to get off at the stop that we were meant to get off at. So, we decided to stay on the bus! After many stops and finally feeling some energy again, we got off at some random stop. Without even realizing it, we ended up in front of Père Lachaise–Paris’ most famous cemetery (and maybe the most famous cemetery in the world?)! I had learned about Père Lachaise from Paris, Je’taime in the short where the women go to kiss Oscar Wilde’s tombstone. So, I thought we should go in!
I usually don’t like cemeteries at all, however, this one was really amazing. Trees were overgrown over everything, the air was so fresh, and there really was something magical about this place. Now I know why Jim Morrison (the star of the cemetery!) and Edith Piaf wanted to buried here–it’s amazing in there. If you ever find yourself in Paris just walking around, go to Père Lachaise and just walk around. I promise you’ll enjoy it.
