Bold Fashion in Dark Times

Yesterday I wore a bright sweater with “Gucci” vibes, and distressed denim. Today, after reading the headlines, I would not choose to wear color. I would want to wear black. I was at Bloomingdales supposing their efforts to fight breast cancer,  and I bought two items where the proceeds went generously to that cause. I have included a shopping collage, for those of us who want the shopping distraction!

 In dark times, it is helpful to embrace Fashion and Art; to train our eyes, collectively, on the light at the end of the tunnel. I wish you peace, joy, and the bit of light that comes with illumination.

XOXO, Elle

Eclipse in vivd orange/ Outfit For the Solar eclipse In NYC

Dressed in a #EvaMendes wrap skirt, via NY&C , I went out to see the solar eclipse The sky went dark and the crescent moon was the same fiery orange as my bag, and dimmed to the coral of my top. I did not intend to mirror this miraculous natural event with my random outfit choice , but there it is. What wonderful experience : throngs of New Yorkers were lining the street and erupting into gleeful OOHS and AHHS- What a lovely change of venue and mood for this city, and elsewhere, I am sure!

Grand Opening: Studio34

I enjoyed the grand opening of the Midtown East location of Studio 34, a salon that specializes in balayage and ombre hair color . The opening celebration was lavish and fun. I wore a silk tiered halter dress, a mini bag by Coccinelle, and a cuff bracelet via Etsy, made by Swarovski. I love to support small and local! — Ok, this city blogger is off to the Hamptons for a bit! Happy weekend!
