Fashion Friday: Black and Gold

Friday, December 5th, 2014






Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold… Ok, and Skingraft.

I love all black. I love casual attire. I love leather. So it’s self explanatory why I love this look. Skingraft has the best leather. Their designs definitely rival luxury designers like Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.

Also, because a girl can never own too many shoes, I snagged a pair of Supra kicks for cruising the city. I wore holes into my last pair of sneakers, so I needed an upgrade. I didn’t have good shoes for trekking camera gear around in the rain (this is how I’m justifying it) and have been eyeing Supra’s high tops for months.

Thanks Sarah for outfitting me in NYC and helping with photos, and thanks Freddie for helping with kicks!

Sweatshirt, leggings and clutch: Skingraft

Never Forget

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Eleven years ago today, but it still feels like yesterday.

“Bessie, turn on the TV. A plane just hit the World Trade Center,” Dad yelled.

I ran upstairs and turned on the television, just in time to see a second plane hit. It gave me goosebumps, partially because it looked like a movie but mainly because I knew, even at 14, it was something more.

Eleven years later, and so much has changed. Some might say for the better, others argue for the worst. To be in NYC for September 11th is an odd feeling. I walked home last night and saw the tower lights. An eerie reminder of what remains.

Walking to work this morning, in my American flag button-up, New Yorkers smiled and nodded. It’s gorgeous today, much like the morning of 9/11. I can only imagine what New Yorkers must have felt, seeing smoke billow up in the clear, blue sky. It gives me chills just thinking about it.

Regardless of beliefs on who flew those planes (and honestly, after much research even I’m not sure) it’s a day to remember the lives lost. Remember the heros who sacrificed their lives to save others. Be thankful for what you have. Tell friends and family you love them, because in a New York minute, anything can change.

The Typo Terrorist

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

A few snaps of one of my now-favorite street artists, The Typo Terrorist.

First spotted his work on my bike ride to work. Imagine my surprise to come to NY and see it scattered around Soho and the Lower East Side.

A few other tags include “Slavery has evolved, it’s called unpaid internships” and “Corporations United… No, Citizens United sounds better.”

Thoughts on this street art? Do you agree with the artist’s message?

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!

Sending lots of love from NYC and The Cultue of Me. Here’s a few snaps from Le Bain on Saturday. Fools Gold knows how to throw it down.

Met two really rad ladies as well. Masha, from LA, and Aimee, a recent NYC transplant from SF. Needless to say, I am amped on my bi-coastal friendships.

*Huge thanks to Jane for this vintage patriotic number. Let’s just say it got me noticed! ;]

Don’t Go Home

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Love this ad campaign from Cole Haan.

Took a peep at their latest collection. Coupled with these ads, it makes me think Cole Haan is trying to reach a younger demographic. If they need any design advice, I might know a girl who loves shoes…

Go with the bad boy. #DontGoHome
