I love Chelsea for its charm, dining, speakeasy’s and the overall artistic vibe. I appreciate when business owners try to be unique, different and classy, and so many entrepreneurs have done just that to make this a great neighborhood. Although I live on the Upper East Side, my outfit seemed to do me well as an understated blend of “look at me if you want to notice” instead of “LOOK AT ME”. I find it funny that whenever I have a guy take my photos they don’t take the full body of my feet, but you get a little peak at my shoes. I’m wearing one of my favorite BCBG Maxazria blazers mixed with my grandmother’s silk pink button up top, brown corduroys and strappy leather and brown platforms.
I feel this is the perfect transitional outfit from this past ridiculously long winter to this warming up spring time. Showing a little leg and mixing light and dark is the way you can do this. As the temperature rises, the hemlines go up, toes will break out, and necklines swoop. Till then, I wear a light weight and color turtleneck, a slit light and dark skirt, and booties that give a peak of skin to make a statement “It’s not winter anymore”. My bag is italian leather and actually purchased on a cart vendor in the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. I recommend going shopping down in that area as the weather starts to get better and better.
This hidden gem of a restaurant is located on the 6th floor of Bloomingdales at 1000 3rd Avenue off of Madison ave. My friend Sandra has a fashion blog SandraManay.com and we went to Parsons together. We decided this would be a great spot to have delicious and traditional Croque-monsieur and Mussels in white wine sauce. Sandra and I talked about blogging and our love for fashion. The sunglasses I am wearing are now my favorite pair of sunglasses thanks to this lovely company JPLUS, an italian brand that has quite unique shapes and styles.
