What I Wore: NYC Day Two

Welcome to my second installment of NYC Mother’s Day weekend! Our morning started off in Tribeca where we had a scrumptious breakfast.

We enjoyed our breakfast at this quaint little restaurant called Kitchenette.  It was so warm and homey giving you the feeling of stepping into your grandmother’s kitchen with sweet smells swirling in the air!

Cookies and cakes galore!

Red velevet pancakes! Eat your heart out!

My girl Michele dropped by to join us for breakfast :-)

After our meal, Mom went to a salon next door for a manicure and I took the opportunity to burn some calories and explore Tribeca.

image

I came across an adorable farmers market with all sorts of goodies.

image

We left Tribeca and headed to the Soho area for some vintage shopping.  I was so excited to visit one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite shops Resurrection! It was filled with one of a kind vintage pieces from Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, McQueen and more.  Unfortunately, I don’t have Rachel Zoe’s budget so none of these beauties came home with me. Next time ;-)

A little pit stop through Times Square on our way back to the hotel.

We ended our night at a restaurant of famed chef, Marcus Samuelsson, called the Red Rooster.  It is located right in the heart of Harlem so I wanted to go ultra vintage glam with a beaded headpiece and red lips.

That’s me impatiently awaiting my drink.

What I Wore: G.N.O. & The Great Gatsby!

Finally, I got to see the much anticipated movie The Great Gatsby last night!! One of my friends organized a fabulous girls’ night where we met at the bar of the movie theater (to pre-game with libations) all decked out in our roaring twenties looks.  I was over the moon excited to have the opportunity to dress up in my favorite fashion era of clothing.  I always feel so dignified and ladylike in those clothes and I think I’m going to find a way to incorporate that look in my wardrobe more often.

image

The movie was in 3D which really made the film extraordinary.  The images and colors were extremely vibrant.  I would be surprised if this film did not win the Oscar for best cinematography and costume design.  I literally wanted to jump into every outfit that the characters Daisy and Jordan were wearing.

image

I recently re-read the book and thought that the movie adaptation was very true to the novel.  I loved how some of the more significant phrases appeared across the screen.  I have also been listening to the soundtrack on repeat and really enjoyed seeing how they applied certain songs for specific scenes.

image

Lastly, I thought every actor they chose for the parts fit with how I imagined the characters when reading the book.  Mulligan was a perfect Daisy and don’t even get me started on Leonardo Dicaprio as Gatsby……obsessed!!!!

image

If you have not had a chance to see this film, RUN (don’t walk) to the theater! You will not be disappointed.

P.S. Get the soundtrack too :-)

I was wearing…..

Hat: Urban Outfitters.  Necklaces and earrings: Macy’s. Dress: Hot Sauce (old).  Shoes: Nine West. Gloves and handbag: Vintage.

Fashionably yours,

What I Wore: Harlem Renaissance Inspiration

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a birthday party of friend of my husband last weekend.  What made the party extra special was that it was a Harlem Renaissance theme party!!! Once I heard about this weeks prior my creative juices started flowing.  That period of fashion is hands down my favorite era.  I’ve always felt like that was the time I should have been around for.  It was a time when men were dapper gentlemen and women were sophisticated ladies at all times.  I look at old pictures and it looks as if women dressed up just to go grocery shopping!  A far cry from how we look shopping today.  I also love the style icons of that time such as Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Josephine Baker.  Here are a couple of looks from the party

So often, life imitates art.  I used my costume inspiration for a wedding we attended the next day!
