Free People // At First Light

January 26, 2014

Free People, stop coming out with amazingness after amazingness after amazingness. It’s make me mis my 40% off employee discount far too much!!!! Just had to post the latest Free People Intimates lookbook. It’s too dreamy not to share. And you know how much of a fan I am of white morning light through windows? And unlined bras. Now that I actually do work in lingerie, my appreciation for this realm of the fashion world has grown a thousand fold. I own so many bralettes, it’s almost edging on insanity. It’s a well known fact that wearing something pretty underneath it all makes the act of winter hibernation feel less lazy and far more romantic. Free People’s new lingerie styles will launch tomorrow 🙂

Sunny Side Up

January 25, 2014

Arnhem Clothing kimono, H&M dress, Forever 21 hoop earrings, all jewelry by Shashi, Free People sunglasses
In the middle of a polar vortex here in NYC. It’s sunny and summer feeling in California. Can’t you tell how much I’m missing the west coast right now? 
Song I’m currently in love with: . . . Berlin by RY X. The song isn’t very long, but it has a lasting impression. You feel every word he sings down to your deepest nerve. I literally have shivers the entire song through. And then I repeat it over and over and over again. It’s so sad, but sometimes sadness can be one of the most beautiful feelings.

Come down love 
Berlin in the cold 
All that fighting, all that snow 
 Sober nights 
and byron on my mind 
Tell me I’m not going home 
and I’ll stop waiting by the phone 
Bedroom floor 
and silence in my blood 
Sorry love I’m running home 
I’m a child of sun and the stars I love

F21 // Varet Street

January 23, 2014

Forever 21 dress, Free People maxi top, Sam Edelman boots, Vanessa Mooney necklaces
I’m collaborating with Forever 21 to bring you the best of my hood and of NYC (in my opinion). I’m a Brooklyn girl at heart and I love everything about my neighborhood and the surrounding areas, but I go all around the city. Every weekend ends up turning into an excursion to someplace new. Uptown. Downtown. Queens. LES. You might even find me down on Wall Street for a hot second. Every single part of the city has something special and outstanding, and I love each nook of the city for its uniqueness. Today, I start with Bushwick, a part of BK just east of where I live in East Williamsburg. Bushwick may sound familiar to those of you who don’t know Brooklyn too well, but watch the show GIRLS. Yes there are epic warehouse parties, lots of kids on bikes, and yup the boys are extra cute here and like to cuff their jeans at the hem and wear their baseball caps backwards. It’s grungy and creative feeling, with colorful graffiti painted walls lining nearly every block, and hidden coffee shops where you least expect them to be. Varet Street is one of my favorite streets in this neck of the woods because everything I need and love is just on this street or at least a block away in all directions. Tutu’s, my favorite brunch spot and late night dance hangout as I shown in my earlier post, my favorite vintage/consignment store Fox & Fawn (their other awesome location is in Greenpoint, BK), Angel Noir Cafe for a rocking sandwich for lunch or to go see an intimate show at night, Big Tree Bottles wine shop for a superbly curated selection of high and low priced wine, and then there is the famous pizza joint Roberta’s just down the street (another memorable location from an episode of GIRLS). What more could a Brooklyn girl ask for? 
It was freezing cold this fine Sunday afternoon after a heart brunch at Tutu’s and quick trip to Fox & Fawn for some vintage threads, but I decided to skip the coat for these pictures. Can’t you tell that I am SO OVER WINTER???? More to come with my local spot tour in NYC with Forever 21 🙂

Forever Dark

January 20, 2014

TYSA black maxi dress, Forever 21 lace top, Rag & Bone hat, Shashi necklace
There’s something so mysterious about a head-to-toe black ensemble. I love to romanticize an all black with sheer lace and vampire-esque lips. Victorian goth vibes. I made it work in high school and college. I’ll make it work again today.
