The bodysuit has changed my life and gives me ease. I wear mine alone around the house along with a knit sweater. I wear it with a pair of jeans. I wear it to dance with a pair of tights and ballet slippers. It gives me freedom and movement! This one is by Sezane. They are forever one of my favorite brand partners.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I’m keeping things small. A little get-together with friends at home in Dumbo. Just the way I like it. Champagne and something baking in the oven. This is one of my truly off duty looks. Layered jumpers. A great jean. A perfect cowboy boot and baseball cap. It’s a bit Princess Diana and a whole lot of Brooklyn.
I just got to play “Lay Lady Lay” by Bob Dylan to this photo series. I have worked with Sezane for so many years and it’s absolutely incredible to watch a brand grow so organically. Sezane lovers are true Sezane lovers. We’re talking lines outside the store on every product launch, and more Instagram buzz than you can imagine. It’s exciting to be a part of the love. It’s a brand that has and always be conscious of our earth, our humanity, and our surroundings, so it’s no surprise that their denim relaunch is 100% sustainable. Each pair is made of 100% organic cotton, and produced with recycled water. The denim processing is also waterless with an overall 83% less use of chemical productions and 2x less water used than regular production. I really can lay around in these all day. So for those of us who are taking more and more steps to a more sustainable wardrobe, we can start simply with a pair of jeans.
Meet your highness, Princess Gucci. Yes, that is her real name! This gloomy weekend was one to stay inside on the Upper West Side. I find uptown to be a little weekly escape for me. My boyfriend and I walk through Central Park, make visits to the local farmer’s market, and really just stay in and watch movies. I had my camera on me, and so my boyfriend snagged these shots one sleepy Saturday afternoon. We were just playing around at his mother’s house, keeping the kitty’s company. It’s an absolutely gorgeous house, wouldn’t you agree? I love the vintage gold accents, statues, and and pops of animal prints. They’re French, and they love their cats. Gucci here happens to be one of my favorite little fluff balls and the perfect sidekick for my French story for Parisian brand, Sezane. I think she really enjoyed all the attention. I mean, look at that beauty shot! Talk about one glamorous and very high maintenance kitty. . . always sitting on her throne. When family is away for the weekend, she actually enjoys our short visits filled with treats and a little love.
