After buying basically the entire collection of Sonia Rykiel for H&M underwear I realized how incredibly elegant her aesthetic is. I am now using her pre-fall 2010 collection as inspiration for all my days in New York.
Red lipstick, wrap coats, ankle boots/heels, chunky socks, brown hair up, pleated woolen dresses & thick stripes.
AHHH oh my
I am so enticed
(the best part of this song is at 2:30min)
TO walk along Broadway in the lower east side to see Uniqlo, get Pink Berry & browse Sephora
For 34-38th street (garment district) to pick up buttons, drop samples off at So Youngs and get a hides of leather for sleeves.
Lunch at Bottego with Tracy & Kai - number 2 - prosciutto on olive bread
A dress to play a quick game of chess with the homeless men in Union Square, or to buy a plate decorated with real marijuana leaves in enamel
For an afternoon at the Met with Miro & Manet.....matching with the yellow cab that would drive me from the frozen lake at Central Park to find out where the ducks go in the wintertime
For dinner at Uppudo with Robert, Kopi & Ira with Plum wine and lemon juice
An outfit to play pool with Moses at Max fish with $3 PABS and Australian football players
This outfit would be perfect for vintage shopping at Beacons Closet in Williamsburg
To hang out with Thom Browne on Valentines day <3 before the menswear show on Monday
For catching the blue line subway from one side of Manhattan to the other solely because the book you're reading is so addictive that you can't get off
And the last and final look of love (for Sonia)
The outfit to come home in; for a midnight visit to a Safety Boy for kisses
