More in NYC

Snapped a few photos after lunch at Balthazar...
For some reason, New York makes me want to wear all black. Wearing a 60s wool dress, Uniqlo cashmere turtleneck, antique jewelry, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, and Miu Miu boots.
We took a trip to Astro Gems to find inspiration for my upcoming collections...
In the Roman showroom, wearing J.crew striped shirt, vintage wool coat, Madewell jeans, Karla Deras for Roman Luxe earrings, and  Prada leopard pumps.

blue roses said...

i always end up wearing monochrome black in manhattan as well, especially in the winter. it just seems clean, and usually matches the bleak background of towering buildings.

balthazar for lunch is the best; champagne and oysters!

ok, because you're so perfect I think I can say this, but in that very first picture - did you ever watch Arrested Development? - with your hand on the wall like that you remind me of Liza Minnelli as Lucille 2 with her vertigo! haha, but of course you look amazing, just a funny frame of reference if it makes any sense!

New York makes you want to wear all black? Or is it because you packed in black clothes?
The fur coat is a big no no. I like the purple coat tho.
