I heart NY

Standard

Today I took a break from my crazy life in fashion to remember the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It was so powerful to see lower Manhattan from across the East River in Red Hook, Brooklyn, as I instinctively dressed patriotic on this gloomy day in NYC.

I was lucky to be just outside of the city on that dreadful day and there are so many connections to people in my life that were almost there—missed their meeting…went the day before…got out just in time. Though many were not as lucky and we will never forget.

Aritzia maxi dress; Diane von Furstenberg sweatshirt blazer; CLO Intimo bra; vintage belt; Toms shoes; Marc New York sunnies; Marc by Marc Jacobs cross body satchel / photos by Joshua Boccheciamp

vintage tortoise shell bangle; etc... watchband bracelets (metal, leather and cord); Marina Pecoraro "subtle skull head for the shy skull wearer" silk rope bracelet; vintage ring (designed by Andi for her wedding band"

On a lighter note, I think there was something also instinctual that made me put on my favorite Tom’s shoes for my stroll and it was probably that the spring 2012 line of Electric Feathers outfitted their models in similar pairs, some even hand painted (hmm, I smell an ispy-diy.blogspot.com project?). I promise to finallty give you some coverage of Fashion Week in NYC mañana.
