Coffee Made Me Do It

I have had a DEEP love for coffee ever since I was 17-years-old.  It started summer of 2001 and the search for a part time job was on and I ended up getting a gig at Starbucks near Rockefeller Center. It was rad, blocks away from school, all the coffee I can drink, and a deep discount to match. 

Fast forward to 2017, nothing has changed...I still love coffee more than ever. So when my friend Candy launched her tee shirt line that had  a cute coffee pun, I had to support.

Thankfully, the Meatpacking District has coffee shops at every other corner.  While I still love my Starbucks, I do enjoy an intimate coffee shop as much as the next gal.  The sounds and smell of an old fashion espresso machine just feel like home.

I'm a tee shirt/sweatshirt fanatic there's never enough in my closet! If you are looking for some inspiration head over to 1214 By. Candy Washington.  There are now coffee mugs on the site! 

 

This post was done thanks to a big cup of coffee!  Shouts to coffee!!

Leather Up

Cold today, warm tomorrow. NYC you confuse me with your cray weather, but I still love ya! It feels like every February NYC gets a rush of warm weather, than a blizzard the next day.  It can get tricky at times figuring out what to wear.

Since NYC was blessed with 60 degree weather the other day, I went to my favorite material: LEATHER.  It's a rad base to build any outfit.  And it's adaptable in semi warm or cold weather. Esp if you are meeting clients, running errands, or finally grabbing that long overdue drink with a friend.

 A good leather skirt, leather jacket, and a knit makes the in between weather much bearable to deal with. One of my style goals this year is to build my leather wardrobe up adding a few rad neutrals: light browns and nude pinks. Leather has def become my base of choice as I get older, no fuss, makes a sexy statement in a sophisticated way! Leather Up!

The vest has sentimental value, it was actually my sister's in the early 90s! It's super duper vintage and a gem :)
