Brights on the Bowery

Sweater, Reiss love the 1971 Marco and Elm too // Jeans, Zara, loving these // Boots, Stuart Weitzman, still loving these // Gloves, Hermes // Clutch, Topshop UK // Shades, Tom Ford // Bangles, Hermes // Earrings, Vintage Balmain // Scarf, so old I can't remember!

Despite the chilly temps, sunshine is always a welcome to sight to celebrate in NYC. As my outfit can tell you I am not quite ready to declare spring's arrival, but winter-induced cabin fever has me ready to get out and about outdoors. It is time to explore what's popping up and shinning bright in the city around me. And right now there is nothing more exciting and enticing than Maya Hayuk's now famous mural on Bowery and Houston in Nolita. Woven neon colors and a symmetrical design pattern are typical to Hayuk's style, but her work on this large a scale is simply show-stopping. It reminds me of a giant Ukrainian Easter Egg, hand painted with colorful geometrical designs to celebrate birth, rebirth, and fertility, which in turn are all token hallmarks of the spring season. When it comes to street art, this work in particular seems to engage passersby better than any piece of instillation art that I've seen in recent memory. I had a blast shooting around it, so I hope you enjoy the pics!

Please go out and see if you are in and around NYC.

On the Fashion Hunt

What would April be without showers and... snow? Yes, waking up to a thin blanket of snow outside my window on this April morning in NYC was more than I, or any New Yorker for that matter, could bare. So it's back to winter warmers and layers of fur for me. Hoping this will be the last week of arctic temperatures here, I've layered on the fatigue-inspired fashion thinking that camo would be the only thing fitting to fight off the winter for good! If you need me I'll be on the fashion hunt... desperately seeking spring!

A Blushing Romance

Blushing pink is my obsession of the moment. It looks great on every complexion and while the color itself is soft and subtle, it's near nude tone appears surprisingly sexy on the skin. Given the masculine lines of this Theory spring suit, I chose to pair it with romance textures and details: feathers and filagree create contrasting femininity, white soft waves swept off the face with a strong wine lip suggest a carefree confidence. It's Hollywood Regency meets Parisian Regency: it's glamorous and ultra girly all at once. Now there's no question whether my take on the blush trend is dramatic. It is. But with this slow slide out of winter and into spring, any bits of sunlight are truly worthy of a celebratory couture-inspired ensemble. Don't you think?

The Matador

// Blazer, Zara //

I'm no stranger to a mad dash for the door, a quick change in a cab, or a complete 180 inside the tinted cabin of an Uber SUV. And when NYFW is in session these panicked modes of preparation become an everyday occurrence in my world. So when I had to make a quick switch from day to evening shows last month, with little to no time to spare and imminent snow in the forecast, I opted for a sudden swap to get me to the tents on time! This dramatic blue-black blazer is perfectly cropped and fitted to the waist, which instantly took this outfit from effortlessly elegant day wear, to strong statement evening style. Why does it still just make me want hashtag "OLE"!?

Back to Black

Maxi Skirt, BCBG, (old) similar // Shirt, Jeuneuse // Fur Vest, Wyler // Belt, classic Ralph Lauren // Boots, Vince Camuto // Necklace, Zara // Shades, Ray Ban // Lips, Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in "Dragon Girl"

In honor of Throwback Tuesday, I'm flashing back to a look I sported during last month's NYFW. Despite the windy wintery weather that whipped through the Soho streets as we all made our way to Spring Street to catch the downtown shows, I managed to stay warm by channeling my favorite west coast style-siren, Rachel Zoe. For me, this outfit just screams vintage, classic Zoe: the flowing maxi layers, the seventies inspired blouse, the long fur vest, the black and of course the styled hair and statement lip. Because when it comes to Living in Style, adding a bit of boho-elegance to your wardrobe is a perfect way to ensure a little glamour gets into your everyday. Shop the look bellow!
