I’m back from NYC. AMAZING MONTH. Hollllyyy shit I wish I was still there. UGH.
Let’s not get too depressing now….
I decided to compile some songs to form the soundtrack of my trip…the second each song begins..the image of THE one and only Empire State pops in my brain…. the nightlife, concerts, movies, shopping, inside jokes…whatever!
New York Girls- Morningwood
Boys Boys Boys- Lady GaGa
Man in the Mirror- Michael Jackson
Sweet Disposition- The Temper Trap
December 1963- The Four Seasons
You Make My Dreams Come True- Hall and Oates
Nowhere to Run- Martha and the Vandellas
Us- Regina Spektor
Beat It- Michael Jackson
Day and Night- Kid Cudi
Quelqu’ un M’a Dit- Carla Bruni
What A Feeling- Irene Cara
If You Leave- OMD
Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough- Michael Jackson
Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again- Cat Power
I’m Good I’m Gone- Lykke Li
(Had to include some MJ!)
Now, let’s discuss the last two…Cat Power and Lykke Li…AMAZINGLY INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN. Not only are they gorgeous, they have ridiculous style AND they can SING god dammit! Perfect people…
Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) started her singing career 17 years ago when she was 20 years old in NYC (jeezzz she does not look 37!) Her voice is freakishly similar to Bob Dylan’s (can I be this woman???)
Lykke Li is a 23 year old Swedish singer whos music BLEEDS runway show. Her songs bring a certain “overly skinny, gamine girl drenched in designer duds” image to my mind.
Both chickass began their US singing careers in Brooklyn…gahhh love it.
This is Cat Power with Karl! Girl is living the life….
Okay..soooo…I must admit…the Twilight boys are my guilty pleasure. But seriously, COME ON ….they are YUMMMYYYYY. I came across some scrumptious pictures of Jackson in Nylon the other day. Mohawk=instant turn on…not sure why. Jackson is not only delicious (why do I keep referring to him as something to eat?)…but he can also be considered a male fashion icon! YAY I love gorgeous boys who have their own style.
Need I say more???? There’s something about a boy with a mohawk who plays piano….
….sorry for the lame-o rhyme
I’m BACKKKKK! Okay…I apologize for the long absence. Like I said in my last post, I’m in NYC!!! I’ve been here for a week and a half and so far my trip has been: busy, wild, exhausting, inspiring, fashionable, challenging, HOT, rainy, sleepless, drama-filled, yummy, goofy, and so on. All of this has left me NO time to blog! Luckily, all the caffeine from yesterday has left me wide awake tonight…with nothing to do but BLOG. I would love to write aaaaalllllll about my trip but everyday has been action packed so I have no clue where to begin. Soooo, because I am constantly outside, I will discuss weather (aka fashion-conscious weather-wear). New York has been OHHHH SOOO rainy/hot/sunny/humid. I have decided that my new best friends are: Milkmaid Braids and Vintage Shades.
Here’s the deal with milkmaid braids….I’ve been oo-ing and ah-ing over them since January; howeeevvverrrr, I cut my hair in December- preventing me from achieving the look. NOW my hair is finally back to its signature Rapunzel status. NYC weather is HUMID…esp for those of us who romp around the subway all day long…this is a death wish for all hair types. The milkmaid braid seems to be the most promising solution to the problem. AND when I take them out at the end of the day, my hair has volume and waves! Ohhh milkmaid braid, you are not only cute but generous as well. I love that its a different take on the typical plaited braid trend.
Now onto shades- no need to explain. My new fave = ROUND
ALSO! I posted some of the sketches from the fashion drawing class I’m currently taking….I’ve had 3 classes so far…will try to post as often as I can!
