The adventures of yesterday consisted of exploring the Meatpacking District, grabbing quick brunch at The Standard Grill, and walking some more.

I really like all of the places I’ve been seeing so far-Meatpacking District, Greenwich Village, and SoHo. They’re all so different yet connected in a weird way. I’m surprised I haven’t stumbled upon a place that I absolutely dislike.

On another note, I can’t believe NY Fashion Week and FNO is just around the corner. Talk about perfect timing.

Wore a basic top with scalloped edges from Topshop and all black everything else. Grabbed lunch at Red Bamboo in Greenwich Village and I must say the veggie-chicken tasted rather authentic.

Since walking is a main priority in New York, I guess I should start looking for tennis shoes.

I’m now officially a resident of New York City! Not quite settled in completely, I’m still looking for little things here-and-there for the apartment, but it’s all coming along together nicely. I still can’t believe I’m here. Surreal.

I moved towards The Upper Westside and found a nice little studio that overlooks the city. I know one thing is for sure, I sure did take the luxury of square footage for granted in L.A. Although, the compensation of my balcony size (and location) couldn’t be more perfect. Regardless of all the craziness that’s been going on (with the move and all), I have no regrets and can’t be happier than I’ve ever been in my life.

Noir Essentials

My black iPhone case, Stila waterproof eyeliner, mini sketchbook, and oversized round vintage shades have been very useful during my stay here in Virginia. I guess the whole ‘black’ thing is just coincidental or maybe my subconscious has been steering towards anything of that nature.

I just started wearing Stila’s liquid waterproof eyeliner like a week ago and I don’t know why I am just now introducing this to my face. I have this thing where my eyeliner tends to fall down the half of my face right after applying and it’s the saddest thing ever. EVER. I’m constantly correcting my face by smearing my fingers across my waterline every minute of the day. I feel bad for the people that happen to be staring right at me witnessing this process take into play. Anyway, talking about how upset I am about this is not the point, the point is that I am completely in love with Stila’s liquid waterproof eyeliner! I apply it on my upper lid and lower waterline; it doesn’t fall and stays on the entire day. Wow, I guess this sort of sounds like an infomercial so I will stop right here. Thank the heavens for this product!

(dress: Forever21, slip dress: vintage)

I’m back in Virginia spending some time with my family before making my official move to New York. I have been in for the most part, which explains my lack of posts, I know it’s been a while. I should be getting back to blogging on a regular soon!

One of the perks of being out in the country are the long drives through the fields of nothingness. I made a random left into a cornfield and seized the idea of a photo op. This dress I got from Forever21 was the lightest thing I could find, enough for the humidity and scorching heat, the closest thing to walking around in the nude.
