Fall is in the air (and so is mercury retrograde). Between birthday celebrations, rooftop gatherings, performances in the Thompkins Square Park, dinner at german pubs and Brooklyn diners, freelancing in midtown, midnight photo shoots (with an abundance of sparkles and sequins) and attending Fashion’s Night Out, it’s been an eclectic mix of events this week.
Follow the arrow. I love this sign! I just noticed it a few days ago on Ave. A near my friend’s apartment and supposedly the document proclaiming the sale of Manhattan was signed in the bar below.
Fall fashion. Last night I visited the Miu Miu boutique and fell in love with a white coat and black flats with gold toe caps. The cooler weather is here and strolling through Soho at night while peaking into boutique windows is a nice way to pass the time.
Midtown. I spent a few days working at a marketing agency this week and it was fun getting dressed up for a change and taking the train up to Grand Central Station. I love mixing things up routine-wise and get a thrill trying out new settings.
Speaking the truth. During a visit to Williamsburg, I noticed this poster. One of my favorite things about New York is the abundance of homemade street art.
Fashion’s Night Out. Bianca and I hit Fashion’s Night Out last night and my favorite experience by far was visiting the Phi boutique. The staff was super nice, the entire collection was impeccable and the ad campaign covering the walls was pretty flawless.
Turning 26. Bianca turned 26 a few nights ago and had a birthday bash complete with red velvet cake on Wall Street. We met back when she was 20 and its nice having a friend that you can grow up with and always depend on no matter what. It’s funny how the social circles in New York are actually really small; I’ve ran into Timothy and Jeffrey (on the right) on at least three occasions in the last two weeks! Adore them.
Strange posters. Can you believe that this is a Converse ad? It stopped me dead in my tracks because it was so weird. Those crafty marketers!
Head Shots. This week I finished my first legit magazine writing gig and realized that I didn’t have any basic head shots to accompany it. I called Bianca and by that night, the problem was solved! What can I say? Virgos are super punctual and organized. This is my trademark ‘scholarly look’….which is really quite far from reality!
My birthday is swiftly approaching; I’ll be 28 on September 14th! It’s been a roller coaster of a year but change is good, right?
