I Think I Like You But It’s Complicated

I want it all to remind me of the first time
Willing to fall into forever if I think it feels right

date night for the edgy gal

Leather, spikes, studs. Edgy style personifies me so when new DC boutique Rosies and Rockers approached me to work with them I knew we’d be a perfect match. Reminiscent of my adolescent days of growing up trying to shop in Hot Topic (and my mother forcing me to return my purchases the following day), but with a glamorous feel of sexy body hugging and diamond accents, I chose pieces that reflected my versatile style. Perfect for a hot date night out, all this dress needs is the right accessories and some vampy lipstick.

this tortured heart is not for wasting

Homesickness

It’s been a long two and a half months away from my New York City; a long tumultuous few months. But pending review from my primary doctor tomorrow, I should be back staring at the skyline from the Brooklyn coast the beginning of August! For now, a few visits and this tee shirt shall suffice.

Life is Too Short to Care What Others Think

Getting in on my spring time brights and breaking out some sneakers. These are one of my favorite pair of kicks, but living in NYC I rarely find wear for them, so I’m sure they’re happy I’m in MA for a few weeks. Sure, shoes can have feelings too, right?

Also, this is one of my favorite tee shirts ever, for obvious reasons. Crass and bold, and it always gets people to stare at my chest, for better reasons than is more common!

Girl Crush: NYC Fashion Blogger of The Month: Candy!

Okay, so this is a two birds with one stone murder type post. As a coordinator for the NYC Fashion Blogger MeetUp Group I’m in charge of picking my favorite blogger for the month, so obviously I’m going to pick a girl who’s style I’m totally crushing.

I’d seen pictures of the lovely Candy of Taylor and Demolish before I met her and immediately asked the other coordinators who she was and why I hadn’t met her and her always-studded self. Once I finally met her it was like we instantly clicked. As previously stated, she’s always wearing something studded, and she tends to reconstruct and sew her own clothes! She’s got both sides of her head shaved (yea, I’m a little jealous), tattoos, leather boots. Yea, she fits right in with the rest of my girl crushes 🙂 Oh! And she’s a fellow Brooklynite 🙂

Here’s some pictures of Candy being an amazing NYC Fashion Blogger:

Candy and I!

If you’re into kick a$$ style and AMAZING DIY tutorials (clutches, dresses, studded chucks…) be sure to check out her blog, Taylor and Demolish.

And By The Sea is Where I Thrive

While on vacation in Maine I couldn’t JUST relax the whole time! I did a few photoshoots! Here’s some images from a beach-y shoot with photographer, Kyle Burnell!

DIY Inspirations

I’ve always been a crafty creative person. I used to make plenty of clothes and accessories in high school and shortly after, for example this dress:

Sadly, with my demanding schedule and social life I rarely find time to sit and have some one-on-one with my sewing machine. The most recent thing I’ve managed to whip up is this slouchy clutch.

 

However, I do have an entire folder on my laptop of ideas and plans brewing for things to be made! I figured I’d share my inspirations with you (after being inspired by this post by Fashion Infusion).

I’ve already started on a fringe-sleeve top and have recently made some purchases from the trimmings stores on 38th street. My sewing machine is finally getting some much deserved love and I can’t wait to go to my parents’ home for a few days where I have a HUGE stash of scrap fabric!

Stay tuned for some great DIY’s, my loyal readers ! ❤

Bedford Ave

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.

Thursday

As previously stated, Thursday I attended an exclusive preview of the Rebecca Minkoff Resort collection, where no photos were allowed. After it, however, a few fellow bloggers and I went to my favorite eatery, Cafeteria. Mac n Cheese spring rolls and french fries and salad; YUM.

With Cynthia, Monroe, and Preity.

I also suggest trying their signature blackberry lemonade, or if you’re into alcohol as much as me, try adding a splash of  vodka!
