Rainy day in NYC.

St. Patrick's Cathedral. 5th Avenue, NYC.

Source: unknown.

It's a rainy day today here in NYC, and inconvenience notwithstanding, it's the kind of weather that makes me sentimental about New York, especially around this time of the year when everything is gearing up for the holidays. It reminds me of running to catch a train, darting between the jungle of umbrellas of bewildered tourists, determined commuters, and other New Yorkers on a mission (is that a weird thing to feel nostalgic about?) or meeting up with friends between classes for a chai tea latte and a jumbo cookie at Starbucks... It's funny to think how rain can make NYC feel so cozy and familiar to me, kind of like a well-worn, comfy sweater.

Cin cin à la 007.

Reminds me of a cocktail with James Bond.

Good eyeliner.

Erin Wasson's cat liner.

I think Erin Wasson frequently demonstrates that dramatic yet effortless is not necessarily a contradiction in terms. For me, it's a phenomonon to be filed under "good inspiration," to be revisted and referenced time and again. It's also one reason why she's a style icon of mine.

ESQUELETO: antique rings.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

I love antique jewelry because it's unique and has a great deal of meaning and sentimental value becaue of its connection with the past.

Blue man-tailored shirt.

I just got one of these. Basics are trusty.

Zara is launching a re-edition of some pieces from past collections, and when I saw this campaign from Autumn 2003, I was hit with a bit of nostalgia. I was a junior in high school on the Upper East Side, and I remember seeing these ads around the city or in the window of the Zara flagship that was near my school. It was a time when I started to get more "with-it" in terms of my wardrobe (LoL), making my foray into an "edgier" way of dressing via Zara clothes and MAC makeup. It was an all-girls high school, so it was a supportive environment where mutual inspiration abounded.

Casuale, nº6.

1.

The aviators are the star of this photo... In the end, they are the frames I most prefer. I love how they look, especially when part of a personal style that isn't fussy. I think the key is to wear them in a "throw-'em-on-no-big-deal" kind of way, and just let them make their statement.

Cool necklace.

Chloe Fall/Winter 2020.

Anna Brewster and Lola Nicon for Chloe Fall/Winter 2020 campaign, photographed by David Sims.

The first photo is what really caught my eye about this Chloe Fall/Winter 2020 campaign. At first glance, the choker worn by Anna Brewster (right) reminded me of a Native American bone choker... I would love to wear a structured oversized tweed blazer with an accessory like this as my only ornamentation. Right up my alley.

Since we're on the topic of wearing red (see last post), I would just like to leave this outfit here.

She gave me an idea...

Navajo-style silver and turquoise matchbox.

Child of Wild Light My Fire Matchbox with turquoise stone.

I gave this beautiful matchbox to my brother for his birthday. It's inspired by the work of early century Navajo silversmiths.
