HELLO FRIENDS! WE HAVE REACHED MID-WEEK, AND CAN SEE A GLIMPSE OF THE WEEKEND AHEAD. THIS ALWAYS MAKES ME HAPPY. I AM WEARING A RATHER HAPPY LOOK, TOO, TODAY, COMBINING FRILLED, RUFFLED TROUSERS, PEARL STUDDED BOOTIES AND A LACE SWEATSHIRT!
So many sleeve treatments, I feel a bit overloaded, so I went for an older lace and metallic combo sweater, in a sweatshirt style. I also added a funky pearl necklace that is contemporary, and a nice element in an almost architectural sort of way.
I carried a sweet, vintage Gucci bag, in printed silk, adorned with a classic Gucci Bee and grosgrain ribbon. NO room for a cell phone, but that is a good thing everyone now and then!
This afternoon was so crowded that the only place to have photos taken near me, was on the streets, in between parked vehicles. Otherswise, there would have been too many people in the shots.. But I did find a nice 7-Up truck and used that for a few shots. Against the green, the ruffled trousers are easier to see!
THE DETAILS, TOO, ARE EASIER TO SEE AGAINST THIS HAPPY GREEN. YOU CAN EVEN GET A GLIMPSE OF THE 5 RINGS I AM WEARING. I AM A BLING GIRL, NO DOUBT!
After this mini shoot, I walked to meet a friend for lunch. On the way I saw this lovely townhouse. There is so much pretty architecture here, and well maintained greenery adding to the home's appeal. I took a quick snap with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
THEN I PASSED A COMMON MINI GROCERY. THERE IS ONE ON ALMOST EVERY BLOCK HERE, AND THEY ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE FRESH FLOWERS OUTSIDE. THIS IS A SHOT OF CACTUS FLOWERS. I WAS IMPRESSED BY THEIR NATURAL NEON COLORS! I TEND TO BE ONE WHO LOVES PEONIES AND TULIPS! BUT THESE !
After lunch, we ended up at the Manhattan Arts and Antiques center, AKA The Maac , a multi level gallery of evil tempation! I kid, the offerings are well curated but pricey. I mostly just admire. Below a shot of a well designed space filled with Trompe- L'oiel ceramics, fresh flowers, a fabulous oil painting and floral chairs, alsmot as bright as the cactus flowers !
I SELDOM GO TO MUSEUMS HERE, AS THERE IS SO MUCH BEAUTY JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE I LOOK. I LOVE ALL OF THE NEIGHBORHOODS, EACH WITH THEIR OWN FLAVOR, AND DISTINCT VIBE. CITY LIFE IS PRETTY AWESOME !
