Fall decided to come overnight in nyc. I went from living comfortably in layers, my leather jacket and wool blazer, to pulling out coats, and fur. I have acquired quite the collection living in nyc. I will admit never thought I would, but it's the only thing keeping this LA native warm. I am a not built for the cold, but I accept it in style. Last night my friend Danica and I were trying to get a cab over to the east village. We decided to be those girls with no shame and have a photo shoot with my iphone in front of the Houston and Bowery wall.... After all we were rocking awesome fur while standing in front of an awesome wall, so the moment needed to be seized.
Danica got this jacket for the amount of.... 5 bucks Total insanity, this is the best thrift store gem you could find. (That store clearly doesn't want money, this jacket could easily go for 100+) Thrifting in Jersey, I need to get on that
This is my new favorite item from L'agence that just arrived on my door step. A fox fur stole with pockets, need I say more. (also wearing, Shirt: L'agence, Jeans: J Brand (Big time, a fall favorite) Coat: My Tribe, Bag: Alexander Wang Brenda chain zip) To see another image of the stole see this post
Cute boys walking by were nice enough to help
Not surprised the wall has been tagged by others already. It has been up since august. The current art is the product of Barry McGee (San Fran painter and graffiti artist) with the help of colleague Josh Lazcano(Amaze). They filled the wall with the tags of fellow graffiti artist from the start of the movement until today, leaving their own tags for last. I love the simplicity of this idea, it's the refreshing spin the wall needed after Shepard Fairey's contribution last Spring. For a wall created to pay respect to street artist, there is no better, subtle, yet striking way to do it then with a can of red spray paint. Not just clever, but genius
Before the wall was subjected to contributions
