I went into Manhattan today for some work meeting and other projects I have going on in the city, including some design consulting, so I decided to dress appropriate for 'the office' but also with some edge, because after all, this is New York City. I mixed in some of my signature vintage accessories to keep the look true to my style.
And, my Jerome Dreyfuss makes its debut on the blog! I've had it for a couple months, and it has not left my side since I got it. I love how inmense it is– I can carry my entire apartment in it, including a change of shoes, makeup bag, huge wallet, cellphone, keys, extra tote bag (not that I needed it)... you name it! Because when I'm gone for the whole day I really need to have all my stuff with me, just in case. The best part? The tiny little LED flashlight that is the Dreyfuss signature makes find anything in my bag a cinch! LOVE it.
Jon took this pic with my iPhone, and captured the sunset behind me just right! Thanks Jon!
A detail of an amazing Buddha necklace by Pauline Rader I got at Amarcord, plus my new woven leather wedges from Zara
I visited Zara recently and went on a spree, as you can probably tell... I usually don't go to 'fast fashion' stores because I feel clothes should last for many seasons and be produced in a sustainable way, but I have to admit I did find quite a few gems when I was there. The blouse is silk charmeuse and the shoes are genuine leather, plus the seams are all straight, which is more that you can say from many of the fast fashion chains. Oh well, as long as it doesn't become a habit... The shoes already paid for themselves after a certain Creative Director from a major beauty company complimented them in the hallway. Making an impression is always good!
