Hey everyone! I guess by now you’re wondering where I am. At least that’s the hope anyway. Well, I’ve been very busy lately writing, and interning, and planning, and trying to squeeze in some summer fun, so blogging hasn’t been on the top of my list. I’ve decided to take a break from blogging indefinitely, but at some point I might return to this wordpress.
In the meantime, I’ll still be posting my photos and inspirations on my tumblr, which you can check out here. I’ll also be busy updating all my social networks and you can follow along by clicking any of the links and buttons on my sidebar. Plus you can peep my published work and info here. So I’ll still be all over the interwebs just not in this particular corner.
I want to thank everyone who’s followed this blog and liked my posts, especially recently. For about 3 years, I’ve documented all of my fashion and culture obsessions here, worked with some cool people, and really had fun sharing that part of my life with you.
Alexa Chung and Brooklyn = the unison of cool.
Jil Sander S/S 2011
If any of you are still actually following this blog, I am still alive and well and want to provide you with the best info on the world of fashion! NY fashion week was great and I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer there. The atmosphere of Lincoln Center was fabulous and it was so cool to see so many stylish people in an equally stylish and classic American setting. Change was also in the air when it came to silhouettes. I really like the direction fashion is going in now. The loose, easiness of the clothes is something I am really drawn to. Lately I have been obsessed with buying my shirts one or two sizes too big and I am just in awe of all the loose, slouchy pants worn down the runway. Although there have been many great interpretations of 90s and 70s looks this season (Marc Jacobs anyone?) there have also been looks that seem new and different such as Proenza Schouler (a perennial favorite of mine if you haven’t noticed.)
On a more specific note, Raf Simons has given me a reason to love Jil Sander again (I would post this whole collection if I could). Honestly, I was not taken by his last F/W collection. I thought it was cold and as devoid of emotion as it was of color. This season, however, I am obsessed! The colors that came of of Milan for spring were so bright and happy. An inspiring thing to look at if you are experiencing the rainy weather of NYC today!
1-4 buildings and a church (with detail 3) on the Upper West Side,
5 & 6 Views from the Central Park Reservoir Trail
Today I decided to break-in a new pair of G by Guess flats by walking through the Upper West Side, through central park, through the Met and back. Needless to say I stopped to pick up some band-aids along the way. Lucky for you my trek resulted not only in blistered and cut feet, but also in some great photos of buildings and artwork. This is what I passed on my way to and through Central Park.

Despite the new onslaught of Back to School promotions, it is still summer and it is hot! In honor of the prevailing season, a compilation of Resort 2011 swimwear and images from Florida.
