Sending off Lindsay with Brunch at Punch



Nnenna, Stéphanie, and our guest of honor and dear friend Lindsay (center) who has sadly moved away from New York.

It’s always difficult to send a friend off on the next adventure of her life, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be an afternoon get-together filled with light and laughter. And that’s exactly what happened one rainy Saturday in Flatiron.

We brunched on cocktails, a fantastic bread basket, and all kinds of fancy eggs at Punch Restaurant. Definitely added to my best brunches in New York list.

Rafael Cennamo Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week


Everything was aglitter at Rafael Cennamo F/W 2013. Having also seen the spring collection, I thought that the fall collection was a good next step forward. This one appeared better cut to my eye, as well as somehow more wearable than the last without losing any of the drama and flair I associate with the brand.

Night in Times Square


Dear Caitlin,

On Friday after the kensie jewelry preview, Nicole, Nnenna and I decided it would be a good idea to take some photos in Times Square. Or rather I decided Times Square was a totally perfect location and dragged them along with me. It was a little windy, but surprisingly uncrowded. It still weirds me out that there’s no traffic there any more. No more iconic photos of taxis stuck in traffic on Broadway.

Kensie Jewelry 2013 Preview – Tell Me Something Pretty


How pretty is this little bracelet? Generally I don’t wear beaded jewelry, but this was my favorite piece at the kensie jewelry preview party. Bright color, geometric shapes, and gold dominated the collection, which mostly consisted of necklaces and earrings. I also noted a few bangles and bracelets to round out some sets, but sadly no rings.

PARKCHOONMOO Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week


Nothing matters more to me than the shows. Not the parties, gifts from brands, lounges, or anything else… so sitting front row is the absolute highlight of my fashion week.

The look at PARKCHOONMOO was stark and would have been downright severe if not for the plethora of soft draping. A collection done in black and white with hints of blue is of course practically enough to win me over immediately. I also appreciated very much that this collection actually looks like I could wear it during the fall and winter. I feel that I’ve really had enough of sheer pastels for a season or two. Interestingly, the fabrics used in the collection are all tech fabrics and the leather treated to be water resistant– something that would be amazingly useful for New York’s random rain showers.

Lots and lots of photos. You have been warned.

Letterbox By Misha Fall 2013 | New York Fashion Week


I’ve been seeing a lot of collections with strong vintage influences this season (though just as many futuristic ones, too). Sweet, pretty Letterbox By Misha Fall 2013 had a very soft elegance and a little bit of a 1950s feel. I could definitely see this collection being picked up by Anthropologie.
