Haute Punk. Chelsea Flea.

Chelsea. NYC. Summer 2017.

While I was walking around, in and out of the Gay Pride Parade, I stopped at Chelsea Flea Market. This man, who has been a fixture for so many years in Chelsea, has become known for his Punk style. New York City is made up of small neighborhoods, and like any small town, you get to know the locals.

I want that leather vest – – “G-D save the queen”

My mom used to put me in tiny plaid, pleated skirts – still love them, because they can be so East Coast preppy, and so Punk. It’s all about the accessories.

 

 

Gay Pride NYC. Style. Pride. Soul.

Gay Pride. June 2017. Gay Pride Parade.

This was such a fun, burning hot day. The crowd was a dream, for me at least. With all the atrocities and inequalities still facing the LGBT community, the NYC Gay Pride parade was all about PRIDE. It was fun, stimulating, friendly – – without sounding phony, I truly feel lucky to have had the opportunity to walk the streets celebrating with the amazing make-up of a NYC crowd, celebrating the Gay community. I was invited to parties, brunch etc…

Love these sexy women. It was so hot out and still, these four friends looked incredible.

So TULLE was a big trend at Gay Pride NYC. Why can’t we wear tulle everyday? I also am so happy to see costumes outside of these music festivals…nothing about Gay Pride is contrived, that’s for sure. The authenticity and creativity in just the surface aspect of the parade, is so insanely inspiring. Especially when the costumes, actually mean something – so much depth goes into what people wear at Pride.

HAUTE. That’s all I have to say.

More Tulle. We both met waiting in line for a bathroom, which said “broken” – it was at a grocery store, and because all New Yorkers can read through bull shit, it was obvious, the bathroom was fine – they just didn’t want to deal with Gay Pride attendees – that didn’t stop her, love that.

More Tulle, and amazing knee high rainbow socks paired with high top converse, of course. SOOOOO GOOD.

Central Park. Summer 2016.

Started chatting with this mama on a park bench in Central Park, while our kids were playing with the remote control sail boats. She’s from Colombia, but moved to NYC to continue her fabric design business.

Her love of pattern and design is pretty clear based on her floral print dress.  There is something glamorous about this mother’s look – so chic, so timeless.
