New York going on London: Personal Fashion
































Dress/Shoes: Zara ; Watch necklace: Topshop 

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t already know that I love the sun!! I am not lying when I say that, if you want to make me happy instantly at any point in life, just bring the sun out [or you could give me a million dollars…both are equally effective]. This past weekend was our first springy weather weekend in NYC and I was all ready for it. I picked out this very cute, light and airy zara dress with lace detail around the neck for the day. Paired with grey stockings and used red as an accent.

I found this really cool, vintage looking pearl necklace at topshop, which has become one of my favorite accessories. It’s got 2 watches on it. One set to NY time and the other set to London time. How cute is that? The second /darker necklace is just for added effect. It’s like a million years old, and every time I wear it, some new part of the necklace disappears. So much for quality, I tell you.

And the shoes!! My latest pair from zara. I love them. They are super tall and super comfy. I wore them with red short short ankle socks, so that you couldn't really see them from the top. They covered my toes in the cold and added that red color for additional interest. Most of my friends just thought the red was part of the shoe and couldn't tell that I was actually wearing socks, which was the point. You like? ;-)

I can’t really end this post without talking about the brilliant architecture we used as our backdrop for this shoot. 40 Bond Street is a high-end condominium designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron with a street-level gate of cast aluminum inspired by graffiti. All those squiggly lines behind me in the pictures are that graffiti gate. To the power of art!!

  11. Nice photos! looks like a 24-70 f/2.8 lens :-) and i must say bold colours and you look great!
    As a Phototgrapher, when i shoot architecture i would avoid the human element as it might not add to the composition you prove me wrong!

  15. You look absolutely amazing. You're beautiful, and you ooze style! It is a gift, and such a blessing (and a curse) to be multi-talented. Spread your "pretty wings" and fly... fashion and more awaits!
