Sunset Dunes

I’m enjoying my time by the sea, playing mermaid and never wanting to leave. Definitely feeling Ariel inspired in this DIY skirt, Wet Seal bandeau, and thrifted tank.

Out of Place, Out of Mind

Today I was excited to do a “fashion” thing in Massachusetts! I was set to go to a fashion show of area designers presenting their version of a “little black dress”. This was to be held in Berlin, MA, which for you out-of-staters who may not know, is a small rural town quite far from the hub bub of the Boston capital. It was exactly what you’d expect; and drastically different from what my still-New-York mind expected.

Middle aged women gathered in their best chunky two inch heels from the 90’s in the old “Town Hall” in various versions of LBD’s (down to their knees). Their hair; either too short to style or in the sleekest of French Twists.

Enter: Sahra. In a mesh, see through leotard with a tucked in maxi skirt and 4″ platform pumps. God, I did not belong.

Okay, Okay. There was a good part. The woman who’s dress I went to see was actually spectacular. It was on-trend with a sheer top, low cut sheer back, and fringed trim. Something I would definitely wear and could actually see people in the real world of cities wearing out to a party (to Le Bain maybe?). Sonia, and her line Passion, are exceptional. And the goodie bags were adorable and smelt so great! Sonia and Passion are exceptionally professional and I can’t wait to see her expand and hopefully come to NYC!

Anyway, I’m clearly out of place here. I hung out with my future NYC roommate last night and all we did was reminisce about The City and plan our future apartment. August can’t come soon enough for the both of us.

Last Day in Manuel Antonio

Manuel Antonio was GORGEOUS, if you hadn’t gathered by the previous posts’ pictures. I mean, so was Costa Rica in General, but the beach owns my heart. On the last day I rocked a comfortable, airy maxi skirt with my bralet from Urban Outfitters and took one last advantage of the balcony and view.

NYFW Day 2: Fashion’s Night Out

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.

Dream come true! Now, I just need to figure out how to get him to photograph me…

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 !

Fashion Friends, Fleas, and French Food

Sunday I met up with a few of my NYC Fashion Blogger friends to hit up the famed Williamsburg, Brooklyn Flea Market. It was however, my third week in a row there, so I just perused my favorite booths and added my two cents into the other girls’ purchases and potentials. We lounged around for a bit on the gorgeous waterfront which is coincidentally my second favorite view in all of New York City.

As fashion bloggers, we took a substantial amount of pictures of each other, so the images all link back to each blogger’s blog!

After walking around followed by relaxing, we headed to a late brunch down Bedford Ave at an amazing french restaurant. We all had some sort of delicious plate, and then were surprised by a dessert tasting! My favorite is the creme brulee, though the chocolate mousse was decadently rich like a thick fudge and the seasoned fruit cake melted in your mouth.

Mmmm….fancy, delicious, AMAZING creme brulee! Now for the fashion; What I Wore:
