One of the fun things about being a fashion blogger is all the pictures you have in your “library” – especially after seven years! There’s always nostalgia, and of course the familiar “I looked so young then.” And beyond that, the pics capture moments when you maybe got it right, showed your authentic self, and felt like the real deal. Here are five of my moments, and I’d love to hear about yours:
Short sassy hair and some lace. Several of my style moments involve wearing a piece of lace in some form. Not head to toe, but I love a lace blouse over a tank top. And how cute is my girl Skinny G, getting ready to tear up a rug. I miss those loose linen trousers, and need to find a pair for this summer.
Animals and etc. on my tops. My brilliant friend Suzanne Carillo painted this zebra on a white sweater! How cool is that. The zebra even looks like she has attitude. Graphic tops, especially with animals, are one of my signature styles. You can look perfectly well dressed, and slip a little personality in.
Go edgy in the big city. Here’s another style moment: a typical downtown NYC outfit in leather and jeans and tie-up boots. It’s really easy to dress in a NYC “uniform” as I already love dark neutrals and boyfriend jeans. See you soon, Grey Dog.
When I’m not being all dark neutral, I like to let my bold floral side out. I love this look that Sandy snapped in a candid moment, outside our favorite pub. A big floral scarf makes a stylish topper, even over a floral dress. Feeling groovy.
The Blue Wall Rules. Starting about six years ago, we’ve been taking pics in front of the blue wall on Minetta Lane, in the heart of the Village. This is one of my favorite looks, an easy and loose top over a lacy dress, toughened up with boots. Our new wee studio apartment is just around the corner from the Blue Wall!
Stay fabulous and enjoy all your style moments, xox,
