Bow Bridge || HMC Little White Dress



Our setting today is stunning Bow Bridge, an important piece of Central Park's history.  Completed in 1862, it is the first cast-iron bridge in the park, and 2nd oldest in America!  It is named for it's elegant shape, resembling the bow of an archer or violinist.  Talk about romantic...  It was a perfect backdrop for my classic white dress, by Heart My Closet.  Every wardrobe needs one - so crisp, classic, feminine, and versatile.  My styling was a result of my continuous love of navy & white, and I added some small intricate details to balance the simplicity of this classy frock.

Green in Greenwich || 1950's with UV



Welcome to historic Greenwich Village!  Stepping through the quiet, quaint neighborhood streets, it's easy to forget you're still in one of the most bustling cities in the world!  This entire area is registered as a landmark, and each home still displays the character of it's long past life.  To top it off one of my favorite film directors, Alfred Hitchcock, found inspiration here for one of my favorite movies: Rear Window.  It was an exciting moment to visit the iconic setting that inspired the set.

For such a charming neighborhood, my Unique Vintage polka dot day dress paired perfectly.  It was refreshing to find this very nostalgic frock, with functioning button holes, adorable pockets, and made of such an airy cotton... perfect for our NYC heat!  I styled "Hedda" with a vintage basket bag to match her wooden buttons, and added a petticoat - but this beauty looks perfect with or without.

Summer with Lady Jane Vintage



Today is all about my true vintage source, Lady Jane Vintage!  As you know vintage glamour is a lifestyle for me, something I enjoy whether working on a big photoshoot, or simply dressing day to day.  Owning pieces that are authentic vintage can truly shape your wardrobe as each garment or accessory is not only accurate to bygone eras, but each is one-of-a-kind and unique.  To top it off, my mind wanders to the history of each item ... it excites me to picture it worn at a time when everyone was dressing their best each day!  Today's looks were created from special pieces that Jen unearthed.  She is amazing at knowing her clients well, and finding pieces they will love - it's truly remarkable, especially because people (I included) can be quite picky!  Recent summer days had me feeling retro, nostalgic, and glamorous thanks to the treasures she found for me...
