Last weekend I once again headed to Soho to meet fellow blogger Josephina of Josephina Collection for brunch and some shopping in Soho. I had a long week and was greatly looking forward to spending some time with someone who loves fashion as much as I do. We headed to the Mercer Kitchen for lunch and I had the Avocado Toast while Josephina had the Eggs Benedict, and after I caught a glimpse of what she ordered I almost changed my order. The Avocado Toast was not the most robust dish on the menu I must say. And the service was surprisingly slow. But the location and space itself was great. Plus we sat next two other fashion enthusiasts and had a bit of chat. One of them started a yoga business Mesh Yoga and the other started a site called Radiche. An online destination to learn about up and coming movers and shakers in tech, fashion, media and the like. That is what I love about New York and Soho, how everyone seems to be energized with a love of fashion, good food, and the better things in life.
As it was going to be a low key day with a lot walking I chose to wear something simple and made sure I was wearing comfortable shoes like my go to Adidas kicks. I recently picked up this Vince Camuto bag at Macy’s and as usual I got quite the deal on it. It was %50 off and then I got an additional %20 off for using my Macy’s card. It originally retailed for $250 but I ended up paying $108. It is perfect for summer and I am loving it. Both the pants and tee are from the Gap and the jacket is from Express.
I am done with stylists. I will cut and blow my own hair. I do a better job
The only caveat to a mostly fun day was that half the film that we shot I didn’t end up using because my hair looked atrocious. And that is because the blowout I had done that day was bloody awful. I generally do not like the way stylists blow my hair, and now that I could see the evidence in photos, my disdain has been reinforced. My hair looks better when I do it. I literally looked like I had wig on, and my hair looked flat and dirty. It is hard to tell in the shots I did post, but wow. Do any of you have this problem? My regular readers know I have struggled finding a good stylist. I swear no one knows how to do hair well in this city. And I am on a mission—I am not getting my hair cut for the next year. I am still dealing with the repercussions of a bad hair cut I got a year and a half ago. I am done with stylists. I will cut and blow my own hair. I do a better job.
