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.

And so we’ve arrived at the last of my Long Island City industrial OOTD photo shoots. *sad face* One more Fashion Friday for you. I need to find someone to take some photos for me at my new job, stat!
*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.
I can’t post this OOTD without getting teary. This was back when I had my lovely photographer/friend/colleague Danielle to take photos for me. And this was back when my hair was actually long. The one thing I don’t miss is the surroundings. They may make for good fashion photos, but try working somewhere where this is all that’s around you!
It was certainly too cold to leave the office without a coat, though it was just slightly warmer—enough for me not to have to bundle into my big, black puffer coat and break out my beautiful purple coat.

Affilier 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!
“Socks in Perfect French” was the subject line of an email I received from Mes Chaussettes Rouges, a French company that sells men’s socks. I was told that they’ve been catching on with women, as well, because everyone needs warm and well-made socks, and asked if I’d like to try a pair.
I don’t know if you know what New York has been like this winter, but let me demonstrate for you:
And it has left me feeling cold, as well as:
So when a lovely Frenchman named Jacques asks if you’d be interested in receiving warm socks from France, you say, “Oui! Bien sûr!” (And, of course, “Merci beaucoup!”)
