This past Tuesday, I was finally able to experience something I have been wanting to do for several years now. I had diner at the Versace mansion. It even sounds dreamy to type because those mega mansions are like a whole world away for most of us. I always wondered if it would be like that one episode on the Kardashians (anyone remember this) and to my surprise, it was pretty similar. For a more elaborate tour I suggest you watch this. 🙂 View Full Post
Rainy days in NYC in general can be seem to be a nausance for many different ways. It’s most commonly found to be an inconvenience due to the damage it can do to homes, such as flooding or rotting of roofs and foundations due to unclean gutters (which is actually easily rectified with Clean Pro Gutter Cleaning Seattle). However, I think the sound of quiet rain and the slowing down makes for the most romantic day ever. I don’t mean romantic as in the novel worthy Fabio sense, but romantic as in how overwhelmingly beautiful the world can be- if you just take a few moments to appreciate it. Today I’ve got some good tips on looking great in the rain with a little help from my friends at Brag Vintage. View Full Post
I’ve been trying my hand at photography as of late. What do you guys think?
Fall has officially defended on us here in New York, New York. And while the anticipation of fall was rather large, it came rather shockingly fast. On the first day of autumn…a single leaf fell on the pavement in front of me, and immediately afterwards, I shivered.
It can be a little tricky dressing for fall here because the mornings and early afternoons can be freezing. Then, the late afternoons are sweltering. What are you to do? I like to keep a t-shirt or blouse on with short sleeves, or totally made of cotton, with a jacket that’s easy to remove.
There’s a beautiful little story behind this clutch. I first saw this in an advertistment in Cosmopolitan. I knew that one day in the future I would move to Manhattan. I remember telling my mother about it and showing her the photo. We looked high and low for the clutch and then one day… as I was walking out of a store in the mall. I saw it. I pressed my face a little too eagerly against the glass in Kate Spade and about five seconds later it was in my hands. A gift from my mom, I treasure this piece particularly. It was one I acquired from my hometown and I realized how monumental it was that I actually moved and could wear this piece. I get asked about it very often.
Shirt: Vintage 70′s
Jacket: Zara leather
Shoes: 60′s smoking slippers (resoled to wear out!)
The second outfit I wore to New York Fashion Week was filled with lots of color. It’s a well known fact that most women in NYC wear black. And while I love noir, I love color even more. It can be easy to just want to fit in and shy away from what we love but I decided to be a little daring and wear bubble gum pink.
Love this little pin I found at a costume jewelry store in the meatpacking district.
Matched my Dior sneakers with this adorable little bow (actually a sash from a cocktail dress) Double duty!
