Opening Shots

So we have arrived after an easy flight to NYC (just one thorough scolding by the airline attendant, the trip wouldn’t be complete without one). Our apartment is cozy and spotless and we can look out on W. 13th Street in the Village.

Not far from our apartment is a famous old shop, Village Cigar. Believe it or don’t, lots of fashion shoots have taken place here, including one in the May 2014 In Style magazine!

Posing for my own magazine spread.
Hamlet’s Vintage has lots of everything, including a fabulous metallic bag collection.
A lame joke on the way out of Hamlet’s Vintage. And what kind of question is that, anyway?
I’m taking a picture of Sandy, and he’s got me, the Washington Square Arch, and the Empire State in the distance.
Beautiful city.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday, my US friends, and stay fabulous,
Visible Monday is on its “off” week this week, so we can recharge, refresh, and prowl the thrift shops. ☺  We’ll be back on Monday, June 2nd (actually, the Sunday evening before)!

  1. Great pics! Keep 'em coming! And the answer of course is … shop, shop, SHOP!

  2. Oh. My old neighborhood. I used to live on 14th and Greenwich Streets! Hope you're having a fabulous time!

  3. Nothing salacious I'm afraid! Just minor rebellions xox

  4. I'm wondering what it is you do that always deserves a scolding by airline crew.

    I can almost smell that Big City smell, and I don't mean that in a bad way. It's just more of everything – exhaust fumes, food, old buildings. Have a lovely time, and happy birthday!

  5. Wish I could join you, you're looking fabulous and the scenery is just stunning. I want to raid that vintage shop.
    Dying to know why you got told off on the plane, you naughty thing! xxxx

  6. So funny, you were subject to a scolding…behaving like kids on holiday no doubt 🙂

  7. Did you rent the apartment? i'm thinking about rent one next time i'll go to NYC, but i don't know how.

  8. Are you spending your birthday in NYC? You lucky duck! Someday, I'll visit that fab city too.

  9. It is indeed a beautiful city. And you look equally beautiful, Patti! Have fun! xxx
