Channeled my inner Daisy Buchanan at the annual party the Met throws for all college kids in the city. The theme for this year? Gatsby. Awesome awesome awesome.

Sorry I haven't been posting frequently. I have a econ test in exactly 6 hours. I need to sleep more. Oh boy.

meeting the sartorialist

Trekked all the way uptown last tuesday to Barneys on Madison in attempts to see Scott Schuman. Let me tell you, I have never before seen such a concentrated amount of chic people in my life.

Highlights include seeing Anna Dello Russo (SO. FIERCE.) , Simon Dooley, etc etc. I can tell you that I was throughly star-struck. I fangirled soooooooo hard when I finally got the chance to meet Mr. Schuman. I squealed about how much I "loooooveeeeeee" his work and gushed about how much of I fan I was. Kind of embarrassing.

Met up with Mer during the event, but sadly I had to go early. I'm SO regretting that, because after I left, the likes of Garance Dore, Lynn Yaeger and Giovanna Battagglia showed up. So hitting myself for that.

one year

It has been one year since the inception of this blog :) It's been interesting to see how things have changed: my interests, my styles, my life. Here's to (hopefully) many more years to come.

Oh, and I've FINALLY succumbed to twitter. Click here to follow me :)

white on white on white

ipod in pocket. haha.

Jeans, shirt, boots: Topshop, Bag: Knox, Belt: Thrifted

What I wore to the sartorialist book signing yesterday (!!!!!!). More photos on that will be posted up shortly.

You can't really see, but the jeans have some really awesome ribbing detail to them.

And yes, these boots are relatively comfortable for being the 6 inch (?) monsters that they are. Was able to wear them going to and from the event (aka, walking a good amount of blocks to the subway, standing/walking around barneys etc), without changing into flats. Got some pretty ridiculous stares walking down the street. Definitely worth the money :)

ashish x topshop

Got my refund check for college in the mail today. What do I do? Buy shoes.

Decided to go with the black ones because they kind of reminded me of the balenciaga hoofs that I will never, ever ever get. These are pretty hot though.

Soooo broke right now. Damn you topshop.

flea markets and fries

Amazing weather today: 73 degrees. Absolutely perfect day to ignore priorities (aka, my ever-growing pile of required reading) and go strolling around the east village.

Wandered onto 10th st and found to our surprise that part of the street was closed down and transformed into an impromptu flea market. Loads of gorgeous stuff was to be found: little old ladies selling their trinkets, young hip fashionistas selling off their designer wares at a ridiculously low prices, etc.

Some weird stuff were being sold also

Ended up buying a really gorgeous vintage belt from a vendor that was a vintage boutique owner. He was clearing out his stock and had the most amazing belts out for sale.

Headed over to Pommes Frites afterwards. They have the most perfectly crispy fries, and their sauces are super eclectic and delicious.

Vietnamese pineapple dip. SO. GOOD. Puts ketchup to shame.

People sunning on the roof

Back at home trying on my new belt

homeless groupie

Shirt: UO, Plaid shirt: Thrifted, Leggings: AA, Jacket: sweetface

I'm finding that lately, I've been wearing the same pieces over and over and over and over again (saggy tee shirts, leather jacket, leggings, leopard print coat, plaids, etc) which means I either look like a) a groupie or b) a hobo. I need new clothes!

Oh, and I picked up a new nailpolish color during my daily kmart run the other day (I have quite literally gone to kmart every. single. day. for the last week). It's like a purple-y blackish gunmetal-ish color. On top of all that, the color was called "chinatown". How could I ever resist?

restaurant highlight: Spice

Sorry for the lack up outfit updates, but truthfully I've been SO lazy when it comes to dressing up lately. I've been wearing the same denim cutoffs EVERYDAY, literally. 8 am classes = apathy. I'll get back into the swing of things soon, hopefully.

Meanwhile, I've been doing a lot of exploring in the city, especially when it comes to restaurants. There are SO many cheap + delicious places to eat around here, its kind of amazing. I thought I would start highlighting some choice places to eat in NYC. Let me know if this should be a regular thing, or if I should just stick to style/fashion haha.

Anyway, I went to a little thai restaurant called Spice (E 10th and 4th ave) today that's located literally a block from my dorm.

Thai Ice Tea

Shrimp Fritters, sosososo good.

My lunch = 2 orders of summer rolls (appetizers) + seafood rice with this brown curry gravy sauce (all for $9)

Friend's drunken noodle

But...the best part?


Verdict?: Definitely wasn't the BEST thai food I've ever had, but super super (yes, 2 supers) worth it for the price.

Regular outfit posting will commence soon.
