1 year blogiversary + Maison Kitsuné Spring Summer 15 at NYFW

Gratuit

*blows off the dust*

Well, hello, there! I know that it’s been an age. I’ll spare you the uninteresting details of how my day job has sucked up my life, but I just couldn’t let my 1 year blogiversary pass without a post.*

And a post about my first New York Fashion Week event ever! Yes, I said ever. Despite being a lifelong New Yorker. Hey, better late than never, right? And what a way to start it off, with the Maison Kitsuné Spring/Summer 15 collection, in all its adorable Frenchness. How fitting, n’est-ce pas?!

OOTD: Ça va, Degas?

Affilier Acheté

One of my favorite things to do is to take something dressy and wear it for everyday by dressing it down with something casual. I finally got my long-coveted Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt, and the sun finally came out in New York, and so I spun together my favorite kind of OOTD: a magical one.

OOTD: Tree hugging in the Popbasic Ashbury Collection

Affilier Acheté

Believe it or not, even people who blog about beauty and fashion don’t always feel so creative when it comes to makeup or clothing combinations. Some days I’m just not feeling any of it. So it was a blessing the day that the Popbasic Ashbury Collection walked into my life.

My Surratt Beauty Experience at Barneys

Affilier Acheté

Surratt Beauty It’s been ages and ages and ages since I wrote about my desire to try out Troy Surratt’s beauty line, but shortly before I went away, the day finally came for me to head to Barneys and experience the works. I had tried a couple of the products in the line here and there, but I really wanted to immerse myself in the full Surratt Beauty experience. And oh, did I ever.

OOTD: Ready for my closeup

Gratuit

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

When you work in Long Island City and are looking for places to shoot an OOTD, your choices are pretty limited. The day these photos were taken, Danielle and I meandered over to what turned out to actually be Silvercup Studios. Luckily, no one kicked us out! Alas, I was not discovered, and am still working my day job. Le sigh.

What you can’t see is that the light above Stage B was lit, meaning they were taping behind there.

Under the weather

I’m not feeling great and can’t muster up the energy for a post, so instead I’m sharing some nighttime photos I took walking to the train of the NY skyline. The only thing I miss about that commute.

OOTD: Are You Going My Way?

OOTD When you work in a very industrial area and come upon a building decked out like a yellow taxi cab, what else are you supposed to do but take photos?!

OOTD: Highland Fling

Affilier DSC_2171 I know that I haven’t really featured any lifestyle/life in NY posts lately. I guess that’s what happens when you get a job. With terrible hours. That’s not in Manhattan. I really haven’t done anything or gone anywhere. I didn’t even think that the area was a good place to photography my outfits, till someone told me that grungy industrial provides a good backdrop for “fashion.”

You tell me!
