Every day is an adventure... dress accordingly!



One of my favorite things about warmer temperatures, and the activity I miss the most in an arctic climate, is the ability to dine al fresco. I’m a little particular about temperature anyway, as I despise utilizing central air conditioning unless absolutely necessary and prefer fresh air even if it’s sweltering outside (I am often guilty of turning my sweet Honda SUV into a “ghetto convertible” by driving fast with all of the windows down). The divinity of basking in the sun’s glow while enjoying a feast among friends really makes the experience memorable for me, particularly because of all the sensory engagement. When my friend Patrick extended the invitation to my friend Jen and I to a crab and crawfish boil in Central Park, we couldn’t help but oblige!

Gal pals meeting up (We are SO excited to be half of my bestie’s bridal party next year!)


I was starting to get hungry and poor Chewy looked delicious!


The many ingredients for a delicious boil!


The chef himself with his incredible spread! Even the neighboring picnics were jealous!


Up close and personal into an amazing meal – it was my first time learning crawfish technique!


The Great Lawn – Central Park, NYC


I’m rocking a vintage dress and belt, hat from Marshall’s, $5 sunglasses from Claire’s, snakeskin bangles from Loehmann’s and shoes by Jeffrey Campbell.

La Discothèque

If those robin’s speckled eggs candies and the Easter bunny went to Studio 54 and danced the night away in a passionate and hazy, drug-induced trance of flashing lights, polyester prints, snakeskin, fur coats and deep plunging necklines:

these would surely be their illegitimate love child.

Miu Miu Fall 2012 (bestowed upon me by the shoe gods at over 80% off)

Some shoes are TOO good to be called shoes. They are just INCREDIBLE, wearable art.
