Cosby sweater...Along the Thames, London

My flight landed very early at Heathrow. After a quick ride to London, we immediately go to Borough Market for hot chocolate and pastries. We then walked to the Tate Modern to view the Rothko exhibit. This picture is taken along the Thames as we walked from the Tate to the Waterloo station.

Around Camden, London

Some things don't change. I'm still in love with Camden. Some things do change though, one of my favorite cafes, the Bean and Cup has been replaced by Reason to Eat.

He said, this is the first thing I threw on after a night of drinking. Digging the jacket.

These ladies are visiting from Australia.

Joey on Newbury, Boston



Have you ever been thinking about someone and there they appear? My sister and I were strolling down Newbury Street, and I thought, it'd be so good to see Joey (as I knew him in High School). I kept the thought to myself, but said to my sister instead, "keep your eye open for some fabulously dressed people." I then turn my head to look at the Calypso window and see this guy standing on the steps. I say to my sis, "Ooh, I love what he's wearing!" Of course, it turns out to be Joey.

Joey aka, mon amour, (we were in French class together), works at Riccardi's. If you haven't been, go! Their clothes are awesome (be sure to go upstairs). I had a religious experience earlier this year when Joey gave me a tour of the spring collections.

By the by, Joey's jacket is Comme des Garcons.

John and Don

If these two look familiar to you, that's because they've been voted as one of the "25 Most Stylish Bostonians of 2008"

Columbus Ave, Boston

It was so cold yesterday! While waiting in line for the Bazaar Bizarre, I spotted this lovely lady. Who says you can't look good on a cold day!

Salmagundi: for ladies and gents...

I spend a fair amount of time in Jamaica Plain, on Centre Street to be exact, but I haven't had much luck stylehunting there. Apparantly, I need to be at Salmagundi around 2 pm on a Saturday to see some truly well dressed people. I have a paper due this Saturday, so I'll just have to go in a few weeks. In the meantime, here are some pics from my new favorite accessories store, Salmagundi (765 Centre Street, JP).

Co-owner, Jessen. Digging the grandpa chic look. Apparantly, Chrystos' hat is from Salmagundi.

During our conversation about sociology, about the history of Boston and about the best places to go salsa dancing in BOS, I was very, very distracted. For that, Jessen, I apologize, but really, it's your fault for having such a cool store.

The hat is of course from Salmagundi.

I've been wanting a business card case for a while. Glad to finally found ones of women who look like me. Hmm, this may be enough inspiration to wrap my hair tomorrow.

Driving gloves anyone?

The last of Project East

So this is the last of my Project East posts. The fashion show was held under a tent near the Harvard River Houses. The rains came the night before turning the field under the tent into muddy slush that seeped into every single pair of open-toed high heels and caked quite a few kicks and Ferragamos. Though the clothes were fun, and free Redbulls were handed out (There were some girls scantily dressed ladies painted in Red Bull colors...if you're interested, I'll post a picture), I'm just thankful for having worn boots that night. Apparently it rained last year too. Hopefully next year will be kinder to the Harvies. Overall though, I enjoyed myself. Hope to go next year.

What I saw a month ago at Project East

I like his use of colors and patterns. This picture also reminds me of a post that would appear on What I Saw Today.
