These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

I included a few out-takes in here which I am dedicating to the wonderful and always entertaining Man Repeller, Leandra Medine.  Her latest blog post was questioning the lack of smiling by bloggers. I am guilty of only revealing my sullen pout on Molly Pocket, and maybe I should start splashing out with a few dorky grins. What do you think? Is TMR right? Does the blogger pout equate to vanity? I always thought my smile gave a sense of 'cheezyness'! Maybe thats what my blog needs: more CHEESE.

I probably should have worn tights today....but black from head to toe gives me the willies. Studded jacket, shaggy dress and velour cowboy boots: nice combo if I may so myself!

I am letting you in on a little secret of mine: I am totally head of over heels in love with this street. My grand master plan is to make millions and live in this overly french inspired building, 311 Lafayette Street. I actually joined the gym opposite where I am standing above, for the sole purpose of visiting this place daily. 

So, I know this isn't quite a 'statement jumper,' but it's close! It's a far cry from Kenzo, but it will do for now until I am living the high life on Lafayette. Finally got around to buying a hair straightener (Walgreens finest for $20!) and am trying to get back into the routine of actually doing something with my mane.

THE SUIT has been the most male-associated outfit on the streets. The fashionistas today have wonderfully transformed and occupied it into a feminine entity, by manipulating its fitting qualities and accessorizing with jewels and glitter. Women have dominated THE SUIT in a far more exciting and playful way, in a way men never could! So here is my spin on it....

The Gloss

I recently featured in an Irish magazine, 'The Gloss'. I wrote a small piece giving a quick synopsis of my style and small influences that effect my outfits on a day to day basis. Hope you enjoy it!

In the photo I am wearing my new Topshop coat: everything tartan is music to my ears at the moment xxx

(TOPSHOP hat and gilet :: FOREVER 21 tee and necklace :: H&M bag :: UNIQLO pants)

So we have finally been restored with power in East Village. Yesterday morning EV looked even more beautiful than I remember it to have been pre-Sandy!!! This outfit was also pre-sandy, and even though it was not so long ago, the weather has changed so dramatically that i will need to be adding many more layers to current outfits. The heating has been switched on and we are preparing for a very cold winter in NYC. Ps I love the subtle yet almost identical colour crossover between my hat (favourite new purchase) and these plaid pants!
