Black and White and Stars

It’s not exactly smart to wear a lot of black on a humid summer day in New York City, but that’s what I did anyway. I wore this outfit to work last Wednesday, and then to the Fabipops and Snapette events that same night. Hope, Alex, and I met a little early so we could take pictures in the West Village, another area that I love. The streets are quiet and the buildings/apartments are so picturesque- if only I could afford to live there!

I’m sure that it won’t surprise you one bit that I love the stars print on this top. When I was introducing myself to Caitlin from the Snapette team later that night and I mentioned the name of my blog, she said “Ah, stars, like your shirt,” and I said “Yes, exactly!” I didn’t really think about my outfit reflecting my blog name until she pointed it out!

(photos of me above taken by Alex and last picture taken by Hope– thanks ladies!)

  12. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
