Perfect Morning on Crosby






(d.RA top, Koshka pants, Mango boots, Coach bag, Ax + Apple necklace)

I'm currently in LA, sifting through all of my NYFW photos, and boy I did not realize how many photos we took! SO MANY. One of my favorite batches of photos are from this morning, spent with my favorite girls Christina, Dylana, and Bonnie at an early Lulu's breakfast get-together at Soho's Crosby Hotel. Even through all the madness between shows, we managed to get up early for a delicious all American breakfast of eggs, french toast, coffee, and lots and lots of BACON. I kept my look fairly simple. A really casual crop tee with some of the coolest cords ever. Yes, I am wearing CORDS. I don't know when they came back in style, but I'm totally diggin them. And oh my, I've been on a purse craze. I think during all of fashion week I wore a different bag a day. Problem? I most certainly think so! But it's been fun to say the least. Photos from the shows and events to come! For now, you can take a little sneak peek into my time at NYFW on VOLCOMUNITY! Speaking of which, I'm heading back to the Big Apple first thing in the morning. I always feel all weird when I leave LA, only because I'm never really sure when I'm coming back, and I always miss my family and home. But I had a great time here. I got to work with Lucky Magazine for their Tacori and Bloomingdale's event in Century City (more deets to come!). It was a great event and a perfect excuse to to fly home. Sad to leave, yet a bit excited to get back in the New York groove.

KINGA said...

You are one of my favourite fashion bloggers. Somebody can say that your outfits are normal, you know, nothing special, but I don't agree with these words. Coco Chanel said : 'A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.' You always looks so classy and fabulous. You have a style! Simple, but chic.
I hope one day I will meet you! It would be a pleasure for me ! ;) xx,K.
