So happy New York city restaurant week! I recently stopped by Eataly in Flatiron and of course had to get some food. Unfortunately, a lot of my go-to restaurants in the city have permanently closed due to all the COVID problems. But, I think the city is ready for a comeback and with everything these restaurants had to go through during this pandemic, it’s great to show some support. So why not book your next lunch or dinner? You can check out which restaurants are participating in New York restaurant week here.
Hey yall! Hope you had a nice Fourth of July weekend! I was in New York, stopped by Bergdorf Goodman and came across several cute finds. I specifically came across these abstract print bags from Bao Bao Issey Miyake handbags that were just to die for! Click the link to see more.
So I started wearing a mask to go out and run errands amidst the global coronavirus pandemic. And, as a New Yorker, my heart goes out to the essential workers and vulnerable people of the city. Proenza Schouleris supporting the relief efforts in the city with seven limited edition masks made from archival collection fabric. 100% of the net proceeds are being donated to the New York City Mayor’s Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund. So you can be cute, protect yourself and help the situation in New York at the same time. See more below!
So I’m headed to New York next week. Yes, I know. Hopefully all will go well and I’ll stay healthy. But, anyway, I was thinking about the weather and well, it’s a great time to wear a cute trench coat for that in between can’t decide what season it is weather. With all that is going on in the world right now, retail therapy may be just what you need. I found a few coats that I just had to share.
1. Sam Edelman Green Double-Breasted Trench Coat $180
2. Simone Rocha Frilled Trench Coat $2815
3. Alice and Olivia Monique Pleated-Back Trench Coat $660
The streets of New York are an art piece all to itself and my latest painting reflects just that. I did a painting inspired by my graffiti wallphoto. To find such beauty in the midst of such grit. That’s New York for you. Check it out below, available for print soon.
I love graffiti. There’s just something so rebellious and beautiful about it. I recently came across this door downtown and just thought it was really cool. New York is a dirty, grungy city but this is the kind of beauty that you can randomly find on the street sometimes.
Have a great day and don’t forget to check out some of my new paintings here.
So, I’m snowed in like everyone else in the Northeast right now. Jonas is not exactly a blizzard here in New York but it’s definitely dumping a lot of snow on us. I mean, I can’t even see outside too well because of this snow. Anyway, this kind of weather calls for some great snow boots. And why not be cute while you stay warm this winter? Check out these boots below and even more winter accessories here.
Last week I also caught some of Nolcha Fashion Week. It was a frenzy backstage but as usual everything came together beautifully. I really liked designs by Christian Benner, Leka, and L Catherine London. I love a good statement jacket and Christian Benner and Leka’s biker jackets scream New York City. I was also able to catch up with Christian Benner later and get a closer look at his jackets which have full rock star status. See more photos below!
This week Tracy Reese showed her Fall 2014 Collection full of feathers, sequins, fuzzy fabric and chunky sweaters. It was my kind of comfortable clothing collection. The move to comfort is here to stay in fashion guys. I don’t know if it’s the horrible winter weather we’ve experienced or what but relaxed clothing with a bit of shimmer is what to wear for the winter. Hey, like Marc Jacobs says, happy days are here again.

The Superbowl is coming to New York! And what better way to mix fashion with football than with some completely fabulous helmets! If my Patriots had won yesterday, I might’ve been a bit more enthused to grab one of these lovely helmets but hey if you’re a Seahawks or Broncos fan, you might want this as the perfect accessory for the Superbowl. Hell, after Richard Sherman’s “we the best” rant, I might be excited enough to try one. What’s your favorite?
