A Week in Review

December 9, 2011

{ Surprise subway ride on a train from 1931 }

I’ve had an event every.single.night this week and while I’d love to say I’m happy the weekend is here, it’s looking like things won’t be slowing down this weekend either. Although I don’t have any events on the agenda, I’m planning on strapping myself to my desk all weekend to get a ton of work done. Why you ask? Because next Saturday I’m heading back to San Francisco (yippee skippee!) and I want to make sure that I can focus the majority of my attention on Christmas preparations (not to mention I have a ton of deadlines next week that are making me cross-eyed just thinking about them). As much as I enjoy a busy beaver schedule, I’m really starting to crave some time off. Here’s to next Saturday!

{ Hey there big guy! }

After a full seven days of intense outfits and heels, all I want to wear is comfy clothes and slippers flats. My staple all weekend was my favorite pair of skinny jeans paired with a rotation of super soft t-shirts and boots. Also, since I ate my body weight during Fashion Week (I’d go all day without eating and then have a romantic dinner for one at Chipotle…) I’ve been opting for all black ensembles since they’re the most slimming.

Sucks for black bears though – take the chubster in the photo above, he’s wearing an all black coat and he still looks like a chunky monkey and he has to be scorching hot. Rough, ROUGH life. I’ve actually always been more of a polar bear person but since I already featured an all white outfit (see here), I thought I’d spend some time with the POLAR opposite (pun intended).

The week ahead is looking like a crazy hectic one with two photoshoots, a taping, and the usual day-to-day shtuff so I’m certainly going to be in need of a big bear hug when this week ends. That or a dirty martini. Or both.

»· Local Jaunt : Brooklyn Flea (Fort Greene) ·«

August 25, 2011

A few weekends ago my friend Erin and I rode our bikes to Fort Greene to eat some treats and wander around the Brooklyn Flea. Some of you may recall me writing about the indoor portion Brooklyn Flea a little over a year ago (see here), but the Brooklyn Flea I’m referring to in this post is outdoors (as a flea market should be) and only open between April and November.

There are few things I love more than a good flea market. Aside from my love of rummaging through other people’s “junk,” (my brother’s and I actually used to go dumpster diving…), I also draw a lot of my inspiration from just walking around and seeing what other people are selling. For example, I’d been in the market for a new way to organize my make-up and perfumes but was stumped as to how I wanted to go about it. Then I saw this mirrored tray at the Flea and boom!, suddenly I had a new way to display my products!

What I love about Brooklyn Flea is that the food is equally as important as the shopping vendors. Lobster rolls, watermelon juice, brisket, and tacos are just a few of the delicious goodies surrounding the flea market premises and I only wish I had the time and room to to try it all. Erin and I had plans to eat lunch at a nearby restaurant so I only got some watermelon juice and sliced mango, but it’s a rare occasion that I pass up a lobster roll…or a taco…or a Porchetta sandwich.

Although I went to the Flea just a few weeks ago, I’m hoping that, weather permitting, I’ll have a chance to go back sometime this weekend. If not for a vintage watch, then at least for the amazing lobster rolls…yum!

»· Bardot ·«

June 13, 2011

Brigitte Bardot has been one of my biggest inspirations/icons ever since I saw La Parisienne about ten years ago. I immediately fell in love with her voluminous blonde hair, perfectly plump pout, and heavily lined almond eyes that have become one of her most notable trademarks. I am constantly looking to her for beauty inspiration, so much so that in high school I had a full set of bangs, bleach blonde hair and went a little overboard on the eyeliner (kind of like this picture only half the time my eyeliner was smudged around my face…oh, high school…). I’ve since tamed my “Bardot look” and only break it out every once in awhile with the right outfit which is exactly where this dress comes in.

I saw this dress at a little vintage store near my apartment and was immediately reminded of those feminine frocks Brigitte was so often seen posing in. So, referring back to my many photographs of the Parisienne pin-up (if you follow my tumblr, you may have noticed that her picture pops-up quite a bit), I did my best at re-creating her signature look. I think my hair could have used a bit more volume, but since I wore this outfit to brunch followed by the dog park, I didn’t think bombshell hair was entirely appropriate. Maybe next time…

Pink Dusk

March 30, 2011

In the spring and summertime I love making and wearing headbands made up of flowers, feathers and hippie inspired ribbons. While I’d love to wear them year round, it just doesn’t seem right to wear flowers on my head when there’s snow on the ground. This past weekend however was delightfully sunny and even though there was still a crisp breeze I decided it was time to wear my first floral headband of the season. So, I put on one of my more romantically inspired outfits and topped the whole look off with a bouquet of pale pink balloons before taking a stroll through Tompkins Square Park. I can’t wait to wear looks like this without tights and a coat. Could spring come any slower?
