Badass in Brooklyn

My friend Alexis and I stepped off our little island and stepped onto another little island--- Brooklyn. I have already sworn myself to go to Brooklyn at least once a week from now on, it's so alive.

With last night's playlist of "Empire State of Mind," "Bad Romance" and "Tik Tok" on repeat in our brains, we meandered to Williamsburg in 45 degree, sunny weather (a.k.a. HOT for nyc right now) and shopped (mostly resisted buying things), and ate (the most DELICIOUS caesar salad i've ever encountered at Fabiane's).

While we were sipping on our soy chai shakes at Fab's, we see the it model of the moment: Natasha Poly. She looked disgustingly chic in her jet-black outfit, wearing a cozy coat with pencil-thin legs jutting out underneath.

I found a few pics of her that are absolutely stunning:

Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol Live For a Day

I dressed as Edie Sedgwick and my friend dressed as Andy Warhol for Halloween this year. I had the best time and am seriously thinking about dressing like this all the time!!

The REAL Edie Sedgwick (and Andy Warhol)

Let's get some SHOES!

Since my bff has been in NYC with me, I've bought 4 pairs of shoes, and am in deep love with them all.

I got these at a vintage shop in the East Village for $65

I got these on sale at Topshop for $45!!!!

These were also on sale at Topshop for $35!! I like how you can criss-cross the straps

I've been looking for cool high these in Brooklyn for $45

Monique L'huillier

This is another fashion presentation/show I went to during Fashion Week Fall '09. Monique L'huillier is a genius---the most gorgeous dresses I have ever seen! I love the shredded pantyhose sleeves contrasted under beautifully created dresses.

Fall '09 Fashion Week: Rachel Roy

Outside the building where the show was shown

Love the mirror necklace

Love how there's feminine silhouettes like bustiers mixed with tailored menswear

Andre Leon Talley was there!!

Olivia Palermo from the City was also there, snuck a pic of her

My friend David, who interns with a stylist, had some "ins" for Fashion Week in February and brought me along. I WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZED. Rachel Roy's collection was absolutely stunning...such a great color palette!!

Anna with Sienna Miller (love her)

I am absolutely in love with/terrified of the most powerful and influential fashion icon out there now: Anna Wintour. I am reading this book called Anna Wintour: What Lies Beneath the Chic Exterior of Vogue's Editor In Chief, which portraits "a fashion-obsessed teenager in Swinging Sixties London who claws her way up the ivory tower in New York."
Not even finishing high school and donning a bob since her early teens, Anna Wintour has always had only one goal in mind: to be the Editor In Chief at Vogue. She's decisive, bitchy, smart, charming, fashionable, and competitive -- characteristics that helped her get to where she is today.
