This week, we were asked to be inspired by Parisian style, & what could be more French than STRIPES?! Nothing! Nothing I say!
Lydia Hudgens — who is the brightest star in my universe right now! — met up with me in the East Village for a spot of bike-riding & some fiddling about with my Diana camera. I didn’t think about it when I slid it inside my satchel that morning, but the camera is the Diana Parisian! HA! How appropriate!
I picked this blazer up the other day at Century 21 (um, new mecca?!), & it was the deciding factor in going for a Gossip Girl on acid look! I’ve been looking for something like this for years. PSYCHED!
Pink Marc by Marc Jacobs blazer
Black & white striped Betsey Johnson thermal shirt
Black leather skirt by June
Betsey Johnson kiss stockings
Sam Edelman Zoe booties... I have seriously had these forever. Okay, not forever, but two years of hard slog, at least!
MNG by MANGO satchel
Moschino gloves (in the satchel!)
Forever 21 headband
...Hey, do you like my BIKE?!!!
It’s a Dahon Briza, it folds up to practically nothing, & it makes me really happy… ! Riding it around the East Village is one of the most fun things ever.
It has a sweet wicker basket for storing essential items (like satchels) & I love love LOVE it! A bicycle is such a great thing to have in New York City. I should have bought one YEARS ago!
I feel the same way about my camera. It’s so much fun to use, & I love the pictures you get out of it. It’s definitely frustrating sometimes, though! I’ve been told I have to tape up the entire body, which I’m procrastinating on, because I love its stripey exterior!
Here are some photos I’ve taken with my Diana of the view from our hotel room in Miami, & two churches in the East Village… Light leaks ahoy!
These photos were taken on East 10th Street, between Avenue A & Avenue B. The street is gorgeous, it borders Tompkins Square Park & is so, so lush & green. Though probably not for long! There are some yellow leaves starting to appear…
