new york street style pink fendi bag

Saw this girl walking around after the Karen Walker show in the Meatpacking district. She looked just as regal in real life as she does in this photograph with her monochromatic pink outfit; the bag, a satin Fendi with interlocking F’s. So chic. She is a vision in pink!

The skirts were full, brocade and luscious. Elena V’s Tzarevna’s East Side Tales collection was unveiled this past Friday at the Ukrainian Museum in New York City. Tapestries on the wall provided a rich subtext. And with the likes of Anna Karenina currently a la mode, I could see myself wearing this collection boarding the Orient Express, off to a faraway land. The blizzard that touched down in New York that evening was pathetic fallacy, at best. My favourite look from the evening was the opening wool Bermuda shorts paired with high socks and utility boots, charming proletariat.

Irene Kim of The Genteel and Frank 

Irene is all smiles atop the Nomad Hotel roof, despite subzero (frankly, Canadian) temperatures. The Topshop feather cropped jacket must be keeping her warm. Gosh, I love her style!
