Summer Scarf Part II

Saw this scarf-turban tutorial from What I Wore on Lemondrop. Today was a terrible hair day for me so I got to put it to use right away:

Summer Scarf

Summer scarf? Not my best idea. It's kind of hot out. But I did need something to punch up this otherwise boring outfit.

How do you like my red, white, and blue? Totally not planned.

Super scenic photoshoot on Staten Island. If you squint reeeeaaaaally hard you can see Manhattan in the background.

I got a great shot of Lady Liberty on the way over. It took a lot of effort, though, the woman is such a minx!

Thinking up titles for posts is annoying

Today was a beautiful day in the city. I met up with Emma again during her lunch break for Crumbs cupcakes and casual conversation in Bryant Park.
The real piece of resistance:
A vintage Dooney and Bourke messenger bag. You can tell I'm in love by the way I have it cradled in my arms like a child. There's only one thing I love more.

Check out the fall version of this outfit, too. I mean like, if you're into that sorta thing.

So much drama in the NYC

Times Square tourist photo shoot courtesy of my favorite Emma Aubry of La Vie en Ginger. Exposure was too high on my shitty camera (my fault) so they came out a little grainy but I'm not too torn up about it.
July 19th 2
What am I doing in New York City? Well, so far I have browsed vintage goods at Brooklyn Flea, ridden the Cyclone roller coaster and eaten greasy onion rings at Coney Island, window-shopped on 5th Avenue, and ordered a drink from probably every single Starbucks in the city. What's next: bumming around SoHo, visiting the MET Costume Institute to check out the "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity" exhibit (that I read about in two separate Vogues) and, finally, a 5-hour bus ride back to Union Station on Thursday to be reunited with the white monuments and disgruntled politicians of my homeland. East Coast one love.

Style Icon: Marion Cotillard in Vogue

Two style icon posts one after the other?! Sure, it's partly because I'm lazy and sartorially uninspired as of late, but also because when I saw French actress Marion Cotillard's Vogue photoshoot I had to share!

I love the way the stunning mademoiselle has been styled in sexy yet classy lingerie-inspired pieces. This looks almost as good as that one time I tried to wear a nightgown as a dress. Check out the interview, set in my former home, Paris, at the Vogue website.
