What's your favorite NYC shopping spot? I am mad about Opening Ceremony in the Ace Hotel. But seriously...does it get better than Barneys? Go to New York City restaurant?
For lesbian health food I love Anjelica's Kitchen. For glamour and fashion I love Il Cantanori and Sant Ambroeus. Which NY based book, movie or TV show epitomizes New York for you?
I love all the 60's /70's New York movies - Midnight Cowboy and Rosemary's Baby are my all time faves.

Who do you think of as a New York fashion icon, past or present?
My style icon is NYC! This city thrives on individualism and authenticity and people literally wear it on their sleeves! It
could be a posh older lady on the upper East side or a hipster in Brooklyn, this city just pulsates with fashion inspiration.
Do you have a secret New York shopping spot that you love?
Not secret, but I definitely shop more at J.Crew and Topshop than probably most editors do. Those are my staples. Do you have a favorite New York nightlife spot or restaurant that you find yourself going to a lot? Restaurants, one of my favorites is Bar Pitti. I love Italian food. Wherever you live, I feel like you really get to know your neighborhood, so there are these random restaurants that no one would ever know about, but it's just a cute little hole in the wall that's like your spot. But Bar Pitti, I definitely dream about that rigatoni penne all the time. I also love Peasant, the wine bar downstairs is so charming and they always play good music.

Oh! Definitely in Nolita. I was sitting in Delicatessen which is on Prince between Lafayette and Mulberry. Summer months.
Totally. It’s hard in the winter because there is so much outerwear which is just human-repelling. Summer is when the real
kook comes out with denim, studded sneakers, things like that.
Do you have a go-to NYC shopping spot?
Not really. I am going to say that I pretty much shop exclusively at Barneys and Topshop. And that’s pretty much where
everything comes from for me.
Do you have a favorite New York based movie, book or television show?
No. I mean, I get all of my NYC inspiration from Frank Sinatra. Period. That's it!
Do you have a secret shopping destination in New York?
Well I always tell people to go to Beacon’s Closet in Williamsburg because it really is like a massive warehouse. If you can’t
find something there, you can’t find something anywhere!
Do you have a favorite place to hear bands in New York?
Yeah! I always think the smaller, the better. We’re going to a show tonight. It’s always, like, whatever I’m doing today is the
best answer! We’re going to see Matthew Dear tonight.

So I love this. I love everything about this. I am not even joking. I originally saved every picture, and by random deleted half of them, and it is still the longest post. So please visit Stylecaster to see the full thing.
Does anyone know how i can get my hands on this gorgeous clutch. I think it is a Celine bag, but I'm not sure. The colour is just breath taking. I know American Apparel has similar ones, but not so sure about those. Help me people!!! Thanks!
Ok, so right after I posted the first image I found these four on another blog. I also found out this girl's name is Taylor. (No, these pictures do not mean I'm a stalker) Apparently she is known, and I feel really stupid for having no idea who she is. I am now really curios and want to know who she is. The last one just looks like the same bag, but a different colour. Incase you can't tell, I'm obsessed. What do you guys think, should I try to find the Celine (with your help, because I have no idea where to get it) or just go with the much more affordable and get the American Apparel.
You have to visit Into the Gloss and read this article. I love how Jen Brill explains her make up routine. And I need to get this Bumble and Bumble spray I have been hearing about so much. I want effortless looking waves! And as always please follow me on Bloglovin. That is the site I use to follow all of my blog loves. I follow dozens and dozens of blogs, it is actually so organized and easy to use. Just click on the bloglovin icon.
