Last weekend, with all the renovations going on and stuff, the inevitable happened: we took a trip to Ikea, my first trip ever to this blessed land of furniture, all kinds of home fixings, and more importantly, great Swedish chocolate and exotic fruit preserves. They even have gooseberry jam, the very same gooseberry that I rememebr from my childhood! Never liked it, though, but have always been fascinated by the color - translucent green.
Anyway, from Wall Street to Redhook, Brooklyn (where the New York Ikea is  located) runs a water taxi -  a cute little boat, yellow just like a regular New York cab but offerring you a much more pleasant ride.

This stylized bathroom has an incredible view over the Hudson river.

Taking pictures round Wall Street area was a unique experience for both of us: every singe person passing by, camping by or just hanging around there seems to have a camera or posing por a picture, and we were no exception. Feeling like a tourist in your own city felt reeeally weird lol

Florals, episode 2

The floral saga continues. This dress has a little bit of a history: I bought it two years ago, after a Sunday lunch with some friends resulted in me toppling over a whole glass of champagne  - right on my carefully selected skirt. And all that because one of the friends mentioned that the chessboards incrusted in the tables were actual chessboards and there were also chess pieces stored in a special drawer right underneath the table top.
-Really?, - I slid my fingers into the long and narrow holes on both sides of the table and lifted the board, - Ouch!
I should've of course removed the wine glass before doing so but alas, this useful thought never actually crossed my mind.
Luckily, there is a Cache store right across the bar/restraunt where we were sititng so I just dashed in there and a few minutes later, emerged with this dress (luckily, they also had a sale going on).

My floral obsession

As it turns out, I love florals. In fact, it has been one of my favourite obsessions lately, and this skirt - the result of a recent trip to Bolton's - is a vivid proof to that.

Oasis in the middle of Manhattan

The background is not exactly glamorous (we only noticed it when downloading the pictures on the computer) but that's what the city looks like after a long and busy day. But don't worry, it will be fresh and clean again in the morning!

Midweek getaway

If you can believe the weather forecast by the House of Yahoo, my favourite kind of weather - 90s and up - is here to stay for the whole week. Yay!!! Naturally, it would be much more fun to go to the beach which I would do in the blink of an eye if I could but naturally, right now, it's impossible. So, as the closest approximation, we ventured to the nearest mini-park. Amazingly, Viggo doesn't mind the heat at all (which should mean that he is not a vampire if he wasn't so much into biting; need to get more conclusive evidence here).

My favourite kind of weather

To my greatest delight, yesterday we got another scorcher - 92F! Somehow, I noticed that very few people share my feeling about hot weather, seeking the safety of air-conditioned places and refusing to go outside before dark. Hmmm... are they all... vampires?!

Wearing: dress Johny Martin, sandals Lario and Roger Vivier (it was a strategic decision), hat Bolton's, sunglasses JLo

Something blue, something yellow

It finally looks like a real summer: we have had a few 80s days in a row, and yesterday was no exception. Loving it!

Friday night out

These shoes are also new old, bought about five(!) years ago at Zappos. They come very close in color to the purple elements (or whatever they're called) of the dress so I just couldn't resist weearing the whole ensemble from the house to the party location but of course, I had to carry an extra pair of flats - just in case. And that was probably one of the wisest decisions I've ever made in my life (those shoes pinch!!!)

Wearing: dress OC by Oleg Cassini, shoes Donna Karan, headband and necklace Bolton's, bag Maddalena Marconi, random sunglasses
