the seedy sidewalks...

some pretty exciting news folks- saul & i finished recording harmonies for the ep on friday!! i think it'll just be one more session of making sure everything's in order, and then he can start mixing the songs!

i'm totally excited. don't i look it?

shirt- urban outfitters
hat- urban outfitters
cardigan- thrifted
pants- uniqlo
book necklace- etsy
scarf- forever 21
boots- blowfish java photos- matt panton



ever since i started following other style blogs, almost every single one i come across raves about blowfish shoes. either they're wearing them, or hosting a giveaway, or just generally singing their praises. so when they had their memorial day sale a few weeks ago, i gave in and ordered the java boots... and i must say, they're worth the hype.

i can't exactly explain what it is about these shoes, but ever since i pulled them out of the box, i've been smitten. i just get a warm feeling in my heart and a dopey grin every time i look at them. must be luv!! i've also received a steady stream of compliments since i started wearing them, often from random strangers!

the only thing i'm worried about is how they will wear in the long run... as the nyc streets are not generally kind to most shoes, and i plan on donning these babies a lot. i'll keep you updated!

so yes, here we are once again traipsing around on the lower east side, followed by a movie- super 8 (wasn't impressed.)

we then met a kind stranger as we were looking at a menu outside of a restaurant. this man ended up buying matt & i drinks, and made me a flower from a napkin!! he carries rose oil and colored napkins in his pocket at all times, specifically so that he can make flowers for ladies.

to the mens out there- i hope you're taking notes.

then as the day was ending, and we happened upon a wine store that was giving away free vodka shots (??!), i couldn't resist taking more pictures as we passed this lovely heart graffiti...
