March 8th and we had our first real taste of spring. With the temperature at 67 degrees I was able to ditch my over-worn denim for a skirt and tank top; finally!
I spent the day enjoying some alone time driving WITHOUT music; I rarely do that and I got so lost in thought I’d even forget that there was no noise, just me and my thoughts !Had a lovely meeting at a tattoo shop, then hung out with a friend, getting drunk of Butterscotch Pinnacle before bars and eventually, into dreamland and sleep.

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.

This outfit post is about the outfit I wore for my cold travels through the blizzard through central Maine while on my way North for the Thanksgiving holiday, and of course other familial obligations.
Basic leggings, cashmere zipper woven sweater via Eliza, Jessica Simpson moto boots, Grass jacket from Macy’s, and a warm pashmina scarf in red.

Since my boyfriend is an out-of-towner I decided to bring him to the heart of my Williamsburg neighborhood, Bedford Ave. We started by perusing some shops and restaurants before sitting down to eat at Black Bird, a place which does NOT have a quality Foursquare presence, but proved itself in our books.
The menu reeked of self deprecating and realist humor, which created a more laid back ambiance amidst the uptight gorgeous crowd that was already eating and drinking their mimosas. Our drinks came within a matter of minutes and our food within 10-15. My Greek salad had refreshingly melt-in-your-mouth feta (contrary to the frozen kind I get at PAX on my usual lunch breaks) and Cody raved about his BlackBird signature cheeseburger. We also ordered the cheese fries, which were great and had a hint of spice to perfect the batch.
After relishing in our meals and drinks we headed north to Beacon’s Closet, for some selfishness (hey, I brought him to the Men’s section first!) but was too full of bladder crushing liquor to focus on shopping.
After a much needed bathroom break we decided to head south in the hopes of crossing the Brooklyn Bridge; sadly I forgot that is much too far from walking distance.

I made another attempt at wearing a turban…starting to think it’s really not for me.
