Troy on Melrose, Los Angeles

January 8, 2010

I’m back in NYC in like 25 degree weather (i.e. it snowed this morning); but I’ll continue posting photos from LA to make my cold-weather viewers jelly (or not?). To be honest– and you could read a bit more about this & my views on Los Angeles from last summer in another post here— I really enjoy changes in weather and how much difference it makes in peoples’ subjectivity insofar fashion is concerned.

This is the second time I have photographed Troy. Here’s the previous post, where there’s a legless mishap. woopz!

Thanks again Troy, see you around.



Clarice on Melrose, West Hollywood/LA

January 7, 2010

I ran into Clarice and her friend, who spent the day shopping and hanging out in the area. It was around 75 degrees– there were plenty of flip flops and skirts out, and that’s not what I was necessarily looking for– only a few fashionable folks stood out to me.

I particularly liked her vintage style shoes and use of color. She successfully layered in warm winter weather; that’s serious in my book!

I mean, look at her scarf! She even tied it like a ribbon. =)

Thank you Clarice.


Matt in West Hollywood, Opening Ceremony

January 6, 2010

Matt and I decided to hit up the Opening Ceremony in LA. I was really feelin some shoes there but they didn’t have my size. =(

We walked around quite a bit in the area – went to Urth Cafe and the Beverly Center Apple Store. I’m going to miss this dude.  Here’s to LSE or NYC, Matt.



PS. doesn’t he look like Tom Cruise in this picture?

oh, here’s another:

12.20.09 Stuck Mode in NYC

So I have a flight tomorrow, but I’m not sure of anything until I’m seriously on the plane and in the air. Wish me luck. I’m still trying to enjoy the blizzard aftermath! WOOOT

Snow Day 12.19.09

December 19, 2009

I just got home. It’s the day before I leave for Los Angeles. I expect my flight to be delayed in the morning, but I’m being hopeful it won’t be canceled and/or seriously delayed. I decided to do some last minute shopping and snow-frolicking, you know – New York stuff. Chris Reed and I drank hot cider and brandy out of his thermos and trekked the streets, from Mudd Coffee to Bloomingdale’s SoHo for a Narciso Rodriguez Musc I have been wanting for a hot minute, which my mother bought as one of my Christmas presents over the phone while I was there (I know, big fiasco, hella spoiled blah blah blah?). Then we managed strategically through UNIQLO for some wonderful, colorful (and not so colorful), goodies. We swung back up to the East Village for an impromptu Metropolis photoshoot and purchase-making sesh. I’ll now begin packing, drop Killer (our kitty) off at our neighbors, drink hot cocoa to warm up and see if my flight will be delayed in the morning. Anyhoo, today was an A+ day. Thank you, friends. Here are some of the photos from today. More coming on Chris’s blog, Might Like You Better. A few photos already up on!

Just found out my flight it canceled… wish me luck, I’m on hold with Virgin America.
