Down By The River.

30s¬†First outing for my “new” vintage dress from the 1930’s that I got at my favorite vintage store Another Man’s Treasure. I had a limp this day due to my Saint Laurent boots that absolutely kill my feet, so I thought I’d try to hide my limp just a little bit by wearing a long dress.. Sadly that did not work. Luckily my limp does not show in pictures.

Move Around.


Happiest face in town, running around snapping pictures of people for a school assignment, and my darling friend Maya snapped a picture of me as well.

Chic Rabbis.



Speaking of exhibitions, one of my favorites from last year was the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the Brooklyn museum. A huge exhibit going over most of his archive. There was one collection I fell for a bit more than the others, the collection was Chic Rabbis F/W 1993. First of all the entire ensemble in the picture above is beyond incredible, and also, this is sort of exactly what I want to wear when the temperatures drop.

Chinese Whispers.


The news on next years Met Gala theme is out, and I’ll honestly say I’m excited for this one. The theme is chinese whispers, which will include art, film and fashion. And show how westerners have included the eastern culture and both understood and misunderstood it. I also look forward to seeing how people will dress on the red carpet for this one (last year was a slight failure, red carpet-wise, in my eyes)

Green Velvet.


Although my New York “stash” of shoes currently contains about 100 pairs, I couldn’t help feeling that I “needed” these green velvet Dries Van Noten ones, and when they’re marked down 80%, it’s totally okay right? Or maybe that’s just my logic. Although I haven’t had the chance to wear them yet, I’m sure they’ll become a wardrobe favorite.

Sweater Weather.


It’s that perfect season in New York where the weather is even more bipolar than the inhabitants of the city. Also called the “Sweater on, then off, then on again season”. Truth be told, I just wanna keep my sweater on and bury myself in it, at least during classes when the air-conditioning is blasting. There is no doubt that the large chunky sweater will be my fall favorite, but due to a recent wardrobe cleanse, suggested by my boyfriend, I find myself owning only small, practical sweaters, alas, what can a girl do, except go and find some new sweaters to throw in the closet? These sweaters by Zara are my ultimate favorites at the moment (also because they don’t cost a months rent).
