As previously stated, my grandfather recently passed. I didn’t have much “warmer” black clothes, so I made due with a thrifted maxi skirt and BCBG dress over top and was astounded with how fashionable it looked, though it wasn’t meant to. For warmth I had my Alice Yim NY cocoon cardigan, and my Grass jacket from Macy’s.
Here are some photos, for your enjoyment!
For such a sad day, I looked well, and received many compliments. Apparently, though I felt like a disappointment, my GeeGee (grandfather) praised me as his successful, eldest granddaughter living and thriving in New York City.
Needless to say, he will be sorely missed. Thanks for all of your support, by the way readers, during my tough time.
Greetings followers! Hope your thanksgiving holiday was well. Mine was alright, considering the somber circumstances.
Thanks to my lovely brother, I managed to get in a bunch of outfits photos, the first of which you are about to see, of me in my Thanksgiving dress.

Having lived in NYC since it’s beginning, Fashion’s Night Out is a scary thing for me. It means over crowded streets, starry-eyed teenagers, and alcohol. And of course, the rare occasion you actually get close enough to a celebrity.
I personally rarely get star struck. I despise teenagers who act like teenagers, and I’m not into wall to wall crowds. I made it my mission to stick to VIP/guest list only events, but even so found it hard to attend everything I wanted. I began in the West Village, grabbing a quick bite at this little french bistro then heading to J Brand, where Nicky Hilton was showcasing some jewelry. I’d met her before, and also ran into some old friends from college. After about 15 minutes, though, my “manager” for the night was ushering me out the door to Seven for All Mankind for some wine and music.After that it was time to head in the opposite direction of Spring Street, which was closeed for the Kardashian’s and Pauly D’s party at Dash, which my friends said was INSANE with everybody trying to just snap a picture of one of the self-made celebrities.
My friends and I headed to NARS to chat with Francisco NARS and play with the make up, though the heat was not the best situation. Afterwards was a quick stop in the meat packing district, hitting a dance party at Tracey Reese, gawking at the lines at DVF, and then heading to the Ace Hotel for Opening Ceremony’s carnival, and the Advanced Style party. Sadly, by the time we made our way over to the Ace everything was shutting down and ending. I got a delicious sandwich from the endings of the carnival, and a super soft Riviera Club teddy bear, before noticing a familiar face.
Now, I mentioned I don’t get star struck easily. In fact,it’s a rare form of success that affects me; photographers. It used to happen with party photographers a lot, being my dream to be photographed by them but I’ve since met everyone of my dreams. This night, though, I spotted a bespectacled face in flannel; none other than THE Terry Richardson. Of course, my fan girl self requested a photo with him and we chatted about his work and the sandwich I was still consuming, but were cut short by other gawkers coming for their photo ops.
By this point, my night was pretty much over, so I hopped in a cab home, snapping some quick outfit/cab shots just for you guys !

Lat Friday I dragged myself off my couch to go to dinner with a couple blogger friends.I blindly got dressed in a matter of minutes when I realized our reervations were an hour earlier than I originally thought. I think I managed a pretty killer look, don’t you think?
For dinner we went to Cafetasia, this lovely little Thai fusion place right by NYU. Nicole and I opted for frozen daiquiris, hers being pineapple something and mine strawberry banana. Monroe and Nike stayed away from the liquor, but still had delicious drinks(we all shared a bit for tasting purposes). I had a salad, delicious veggie spring rolls cut like sushi, and obviously, rice. I must say, I’m a queen with chopsticks, even when I’m being a goon.
I wore this dress from
the 80’s this nice little thrift store around the corner from my apartment. It was only $5! While I feel like I’m going to my 1985 prom, I still love it, especially when I punk it out like I did here with my Jessica Simpson boots,TopShop, Stein and Blye, and Bali bracelets, Peter Grimm hat, and Aldo three finger ring. My bag was also thrifted, from Savers in East Providence, RI. And now, I leave you with a music video.
My upbringing and personal style has always been influenced by a more alternative route. I adore corsetry; the history of the pieces, the feminity of a well worn corset, the exuding sexuality of wearing one…I currently own two, as well as having made a few in my HS design years (actually came out rather good!)
Though corsets are meant to be worn as a subtle slimming beneath clothes, I’ve always found them gorgeous as they are. I’ve worn mine out on many a crazy party night, but am learning to wear them in a more fashion and daylight friendly way, as seen below.
