Saturday

she only reads love poems and fashion magazines.



chiffon, denim, braided leather, minimalist black dresses, simple necklaces, quirky sunnies, tight gloves, florals, choppy hair, multiple crosses, gold sequins, embellished eighties jumpers, velvet dresses, tailored trousers, crushed velvet blazers, little girl dresses, loafers & socks, tan satchels, sequined tops, sheer black blouses, laceup boots, kitschy graphic tees, bright patterned blazers, cameos, oxfords & tights, rhinestoned shoulder padded jackets, furs & sequined dresses.

just a bit of random inspiration for the weekend. i've been sifting through my folders obsessively lately trying to sort out appropriate outfits for two weeks spent in nyc; for my twentieth birthday soireé & for two la roux gigs. it's a lot to fit into one oversized balenciaga weekender & a vintage suitcase leaving enough room for whatever i decide must come home with me. & i have less than one week to figure it all out.

leave the names of places you think i must visit in the city. a favourite book or record shop. park or art gallery. cafe or tea room. my schedule needs filling with new unvisited places.

My favorite quiet park is Stuyvesant Square Park. I would also recommend Sundaes and Cones for good ice cream and atmosphere. My favorite little coffeehouse is Ost Cafe (Camille from Childhood Flames also visited when she was in New York).

I've been eating up the pictures of Frida & her little Ferragamos on Altamira!

Anyway, the Roebling Tea Room in Williamsburg is my favorite place & has the perfect little outdoor area. It's a snappy walk from the Marcy Av. metro. Plus: Fantastic tea, of course.
