Outside Off Broadway Boutique

Some of my best shots have come from waiting outside the Off Broadway Boutique on the Upper West Side. Doesn't this woman look striking in her leather pants and gorgeous scarf and jacket?!!!

A Visit to l.a. Eyeworks

Monday, April 29, 2013

Ever since I purchased my first pair of prescription glasses my mom has been  telling me, "You change your shoes and shirts everyday, so why not change your glasses." Having several pairs of glasses is definitely a luxury, but it's also an investment that you won't regret. While in Los Angeles this past weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph co-founder of l.a. Eyeworks, Gai Gherardi. I have been a long time fan of her fun and colorful frames and was delighted to meet her and her equally awesome partner Rhonda. Thank you to the l.a. Eyeworks team for my new gold Flying Wallendas. (They are definitely mom approved!)

So, I'm off to Asia again which means I have to do something that I absolutely despice beyond belief..... pack a suitcase. It turns out that I'm quite possibly, the world's worst suitcase packer (if that's even a thing)  I seem to lose any form of practical thinking and planning and throw random items of clothing into my case and regularly forget travel essentials such as plug adapters and toothbrushes. So I was pretty happy when I received a parcel from the guys at South Beach containing their amazing Sophie bikini  and Ellie crochet dress... Two pieces that went straight into my suitcase without hesitation. If you're going away anywhere on holiday (or with work like me) and share my aversion to packing check out the amazing South beach range HERE. And as a girl who's  completely different sizes in tops and bottoms, the site offers seperates at reasonable prices which cuts out the stress of bikini shopping that most of us girls have to face on the regs.

Lots of love guys and I'll see you when I return.

Well, as you may have guessed I went to Berlin last week. It's a city that's fast becoming one of my favourites and there was so much to photograph that I've been left with a pretty photo heavy blog post for you all.... I hope you all enjoy it and I promise to have more of an outfit post coming your way ASAP. We strolled round Berlin taking in the culture, history and street art that Berlin is so famous for.... as well as sampling various forms of sausage and beer (well good)

In other news, I'm also off to China and Hong Kong on Monday. It feels like my life is a bit of a whirlwind at the moment and I don't actually get to spend too much time in my apartment blogging for you guys... but it'll settle down soon.... my problem is that I love to travel, but I'm a complete home bird at heart.

In the meantime, here's an hour of Daft Punk. You're welcome...

Lots of love as always



Work Clothes

When I approached the woman above about taking her photograph she replied, " Sure you can. I'm a painter, a muralist, and I work in these overalls."

Carla Palermo, Amsterdam

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

This past weekend, Lina and I traveled to Amsterdam to speak about the Advanced Style documentary. While walking around the 9-Straatjes, I came across a great vintage store. As soon as I walked in, I noticed the shops owner and asked if I could take her photo. If you are in Amsterdam  check out her wonderful boutique, Carla Palermo on Huidenstraat 4.

A Happy Coincidence

I can't wait to share some of my new street style snaps with everyone. Isn't Richelle Jones, pictured above, absolutely stunning? When I stopped her to ask if I could take her photograph, she took one look at my card and replied, " Of course, I know who you are." It turns out that a few months ago, we were both visiting Off Broadway Boutique on the same day. Pat, who runs the sales floor, pointed me out to Richelle and told her  that she should be a perfect candidate for my blog. I happened to be on an important phone call at the time and rushed out of the store before getting to meet her. It was a happy coincidence to run into her yesterday, walking down Madison Avenue.

Shine Bright

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I was looking through my photos from the last Easter Parade and realized that I forgot to post a shot of this elegant woman. Her smile was as bright as her sparkling jewelry. I can't wait to see what she has in store for next year...

Costanza Pascolato

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

The other day I ran into Vogue Brazil's enchanting contributor, Constanza Pascolato, in front of the Plaza Hotel.  I have always admired her style and was thrilled to hear that she has been following Advanced Style from the very  beginning. She told me that it's so important to show images of older women and revealed that she would never want to try and look younger than she is. At 73-years old Constanza is a true Advanced Style icon. I hope to travel to Brazil sometime soon and hear more about her refreshing attitude towards aging and style.

Well, after a few weeks where I fell well and truly off the blogging wagon, I'm now back on said wagon and have firm control of the reins. I decided to celebrate my comeback by sharing this amazing dress that the guys over at ShopAKIRA sent me... it's literally the most perfect floaty dress. Ticking all the boxes of black, floaty and a bit sexy (all my favourite things) which has earnt it it's place as my new "go-to" choice for those days/evenings where I feel like I have absolutely nothing to wear. I'm pretty happy that this little number traveled all the way from Chicago as it'll be living in my wardrobe for many years to come.

Lots of Love,
