September is here!

Do you remember the 21st night of September....

Rejoice! We have shifted through time to the best song-month of the year! Gone are the sandy, sun bleached idol hours of August set to the rhythm of a lapping tide. Here comes the crisp, espresso and Earth Wind and Fire fuled toe-tapping enthusiasm of this perkiest of months. It's time for newness and fashion shows! 

This month's Calendar Girl is caught in a whirlwind moment between NYFW shows. One of those moments when everything is just on point and the paparazzi are loving it. Even Bill Cunningham slammed on his brakes to capture this radiant creature.

She invites you to channel her inner killing-it, this month. You too are a show-stopping nymph of sartorial magic who is in for a marvelous night for a moondance. You deserve lace up peep toed boots and off-the-shoulder-everything and Meg Ryan's very own bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils. Go get 'em, tiger!

Elizabeth Street

November 04, 2011 6 Comments

Hello, happy Friday! Yesterday someone told me I sketch the way Bill Cunningham photographs. And I think it might be the best compliment in the world. So I promptly went out into the streets to hunt for inspiration and found these two lingering on Elizabeth Street with their 1.5 pound dog and fabulous outerwear. I hear the phrase "you can only get ___ in NYC" all the time in reference to certain foods, certain shopping etc. BUT what no one tells you is that you can only find dogs THIS small here. I swear, I've never seen such a high concentration of miniscule dogs before anywhere else in the world. I think it must be a response to our tiny apartments. Once you realize you only need a 200 square foot living space, you realize one pound of dog is enough to warm your heart too.
