School Rag Parisian Style For Lookbook Friday

Bonjour, Happy Friday all. Today I am sharing with you a French label I discovered on Instagram. A French label with an English name School Rag. My regular readers know I am a fan of the Parisian French effortless chic aesthetic. You know that unfussy, I didn’t try too hard to look like an in-the-know fashionista. Clothes that flatter the female form, and celebrate it without the overblown hype. Casual, quietly sensual, comfortable, with just the right amount of eye catching details. I will have to make an effort to visit one of their stores next time I am in Paris. They have locations all over France, but I believe at this time they are indeed only sold in France.

Makeup Trends 2019 & 2020 FW VS Social Media

By Posted on 1 min read 1014 views

There will not be a live Fashion Week this season here in New York. Fashion Week will only be three days, digital only and no audiences. No live attendees. Very strange. Apparently it was the same for mens fashion week and couture and both were flops from what I understand. So, is this the new normal? Even after the pandemic? My guess is no. But at any rate today we will be looking at the makeup trends of 2019 and the changes for 2020 and the difference between FW and editorial makeup and the looks we see on social media. Hope you enjoy!

NYFW Fall 2o20 Street Style #8

Yup we are full on in to summer and I am forging ahead with my NYFW photos taken in early February. What now seems like a life time ago with everything that has been happening. Is there an end in sight? I don’t know. I can’t lie. I am depressed, anxious and worried about the future. Looking back at these photos does give me some solace. But also a bittersweet sense of something that may be lost forever. But I hope you enjoy these photos of attendees and models and a fashionista in training!

Second Day Out of Quarantine

I was able to get out again for a second time (third time if you count the BLM protest) I went to seaside town called Babylon and even did a little shopping. It was great to get out and bing able to shop gelt surreal. I had a gift card from Christmas that I had not been able to use up until now. I found two super fun pieces and discovered a new store.

In the seventh installment of my street style photos from NYFW Fall 2020 held the first week of February. I captured some of the off duty models, attendees and Courtney, of Color Me Courtney. How happy and carefree everyone looked. Seems like another lifetime now. Summer of course is in full swing and is not like any other summer I have experienced.

Here is the next installment or part six of my NYFW Fall 2020 street style series. The fashionista in the second photo made her own dress that you see here. So cool right? Lots of style and diversity on the streets of New York for NYFW, I love how everyone expresses their own individual style. And I end the post with a series of photos of a stunning off duty model in a can’t be missed faux fur bomber. I mean was her face made for the camera or what? There is still more to come if you can believe that.

My First Day Out of Quarantine

Hands up who left home and got out of quarantine? I did for the first time last week. Though technically the first time was June 14th when I went to a BLM protest. On this day I met with a friend we spent the day at local park, got tacos and then headed to the docks to end the day and cool off. I hope you enjoying following me on my first day out. And here’s to a safe and happy summer…

An Everyday Makeup Look With Colourpop

By Posted on 1 min read 1623 views

Happy July everyone, can’t believe it, but we are already almost a week in of the month of July. I have not yet been to the beach so it seems odd to me that we almost halfway through summer. I generally do not wear a lot of makeup in the summer and I generally stick to neutrals but I have been wanting to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. So to that end I purchased the Colourpop’s Blush palette, which is my first Colourpop item that I bought along with one of their Just a Tint lippies.

BLM Protest Long Island New York Part Two

By Posted on 1 min read 1367 views

Here is part two of my photo series from the Black Lives Matter protest I attended on Sunday June 14th. As I explained in my last post I decided to post these photos in black and white. In some ways I find black and white photos to be more expressive when it comes to profound news events like this. With black and white photography you are less distracted by color and advertising. The simplicity of black and white helps to reinforce and focus in on the subject matter, distilling it down to shapes and forms, to lightness and darkness, and the under lying emotion in the moment. I hope I was able to capture that in these images.

#BLM Protest Long Island New York Part One

By Posted on 1 min read 1563 views

On Sunday June 14th I went to a Black Lives Matter protest on Long Island New York. I had wanted to go to the protests in New York and Brooklyn but was worried about Covid 19 as I live with high risk people. When I learned there would be protests on Long Island I figured it would safer as there would be more room for social distancing and the crowds would not be as large. I did my best but I don’t know how successful I was at social distancing, but I kept my mask on and did the best I could.
