.bodega beauty.



sometimes you just can't deny a good old mom and pop shop brand. 
my mom found this oatmeal conditioner at a beauty supply store 
and she's in love, so i thought i'd share the goods. i haven't 
tried it yet but it sounds yummy. [and if anyone tries it before 
i do let me know how you like it.]you can pick some up here.

.trench perfection.




so i'm in the market for a new trench coat
because it's seriously time to give my zara
one a break. I'm here racking my brain. i 
already own the classic khaki...
would love something a bit more casual, short, not your
average trench style. man, that alexander wang
for gap trench coat was insane last year, kicking
myself for not buying it...


until i find it on ebay for a mere 37 bucks, seriously
see for yourself here. if you're like me, you'd be jumping 
on it, but that's just me.

.her playground.



the weather was beautiful saturday, a perfect central park day. 
the funny thing about new york is that it's always new no matter 
how long you've been here [and for me, that's my entire life] you've 
never seen it all. i had that moment when...

i passed "the diana ross
playground" [i know!]on central park west and 81st street. the sign
alone was worthy to be framed.

.quick takes.






some quick takes of what i wore to central park...the weather was amazing
but i'm still on the fence about wearing sandals and shorts this time of 
year [that's just me]. check out how to get the look in the next post...

.the formula.




[if your sports bra has a round neck like mine, cinch it with a little 
rubber band or ribbon to get the deep-v effect, also any sneaker-inspired
heels will really complete the look.]


flowy tank: vintage
sports bra: modell's
sweat shorts: diesel
leggings: target
boots [above post]: miss sixty


...found some alexander wang t pieces that give the same feeling here.

.the inspired life launch.









details...







last night was the debut of cole haan's ad campaign "the inspired life"  
at a cute place called 10 downing around west 4th,
and of course all of the fashion folks came out. nicola vassell,
and harley vera-newton [featured above] were two of the seven 
featured in the ad which you can check out here.
champaign & cupcakes, yum.

.the inspired life.





cole haan has really stepped it up for spring- 
amazing sartorial styles for men [which i'd wear in a heart beat], 
leather sandal boots and vintage-y booties for ladies, that i'm 
in love with. i want them all. who would've thought?



the shoe company has paired up with fashion photographer 
todd selby [aka "the selby"] and gathered a group of creatives- 
gallery director nicola vassell, DJ harley viera-newton, designer 
james bond and a few others, to capture them in their every-day 
lives, calling it "the inspired life." i like how that sounds.
