Things I'm feeling for this spring: asymmetrical sheer black jersey dresses, tough boots, florals, 90's, crosses, grunge grunge and more grunge.

I must admit, I was a little intimidated by these platform wedges when i first got them in the mail (via ebay). However, they've definitely grown on me, --I can't keep them off my feet! Super comfortable and gives me the height that I don't have.
Decided to wear them to the park the other day and got some weird and slightly petrified stares by a group of little girls picnicking next to us. Whoops.

Was going to put my name on the waitlist for the ridiculously back ordered (until may, wtf) black seude pixie boots by jeffrey campbell, until I ran into these babies at LF.
I definitely have a soft spot for leopard print anything, so these HAD to come home with me.

Took full advantage of the freakishly gorgeous weather (a perfect 70 degrees) by cavorting all around lower manhattan with my good friend Allyson.
Hit up Motorino in the east village after hearing nothing but good things about this little pizzeria.
I kept getting distracted by the mirrored ceiling.
I ordered the much raved about brussel sprouts pizza. The center of my pie was a bit soggy, but overall the pizza was really good. The brussel sprout leaves were light, crispy and salty and paired well with the pancetta. The dough of course was amazing, --soft and chewy.
Allyson ordered the margherita pizza, which was really good as well. Definitely beats your average cornerstore pizzeria.
Ended up doing some sunning in union square. Turns out all of lower Manhattan had the same intentions, --the place was PACKED. Clusters of people all sat around the square enjoying the much-awaited spring weather. Was proposed to by this hansom fellow, who promptly asked me for money afterwards.
Hit up whole foods afterwards, and then went for a bit of shopping around soho. Stopped by LF and bought what could be the most perfect boots ever. Stay tuned.
All in all, a good day.

Sorry for severely neglecting this blog, but I've just been so ridiculously busy. Here's a post to hold you guys over until I find the charger to my nikon. Regular posting will commence, I promise.
The only shoes I wear at the moment
Frye engineers, Emma Cook x Topshop, Platform Creepers, Ashish x Topshop, Ash Wedges
Just acquired the ash wedges. So comfortable (definitely made for city walking). The light brown color is PERFECT for spring/summer, no? Can't wait to pair them with slouchy gray socks and little liberty print/floral dresses.
