For the first "East" post in our East//West blog I donned my warmest fur coat, in true New York style, and hit the fashion-forward streets of SoHo with my fabulous friend and photographer, Lacsana.
We risked our lives, dodging the continuous flow of oncoming traffic while simultaneously snapping pictures in the middle of charming, cobblestone-paved Greene Street.
Since one huge fur coat obviously isn't enough to keep my wimpy Californian self warm in this frigid New York air, I layered a pine green leather jacket underneath, also lending a bit of a downtown edge to the look. And as I'm sure you will quickly realize, I am a huge proponent of a good printed pant. They, along with a killer pair of shoes, allow you to wear that same worn in sweater you love three times a week and somehow still make you look perfectly put-together.
I also have an obsession with nail art.
And decaf coffee.
This cup happens to be from Delicatessen, the trendy little restaurant on Prince Street, where we sat and snuck stalker glances at Prabal Gurung who was sipping his orange juice just a few tables away!
