Dear Shen Dove,
I picked this Tracy Negoshian dress up downtown at Aquamarine at 114. It has a doozy of a pattern. Next time I need to take a head-to-toe photo and show you. …
You may (of course) recognize this photo as one lately from Instagram that’s been put through the A Beautiful Mess app. Among the great benefits of the coast are the sunsets… and the storm clouds to keep them interesting. This one is straight out of the Camera+ app. The ability to set exposure is such an important part of iPhoneography for me. Keep reading for more (non-Instagrammed) photos from my weekend! …
I wore this dress to my friend’s beautiful wedding on the beach (congratulations!). I got it at Anthropologie in December with the wedding in mind, but I feel like it’s going to be one of my forever pieces. It has a classic cut and the print will never go out of style during the warmer months of the year.
I might even wear it to fashion week in a few days. Dare I? It might be a little unseasonable for February in New York… …
Welcome to Letters from the City, a lifestyle photoblog.
My name is Alex and I have been blogging in some form or another since 1998. I’m a former Manhattanite now living the quieter life in Queens. I like outerwear and red lipstick.
When I was younger, I was let loose in a GAP Kids one too many times, resulting in many of the fashion choices you see here in my photos. I also read, traveled, and took cooking and art classes. Art eventually led me around to photography, and to this day I do enjoy a good brunch.
Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll stay a while and get to know me. Learn More →
