When I was in New York a few weeks ago (so fun being there for July 4th!), I spent 8 days mostly working but whenever I could find a free second, I slipped out to hit this or that design store -- so many great places to shop, omg! I hit Kate Spade one afternoon after a shoot, the homeowner actually brought me there to go shopping with her and then she pointed me over to ABC Carpet + Home where I fell completely in love with their ceramics, pillows, jewelry and the Madeline Weinrib Atelier. There are no words to describe that store, right?!?
But Kate Spade was such a highlight for me, the store was so decked out in all its colorful amazingness - a little quirky, a little retro, and a lot of style and color! I wanted to buy everything I saw but I only had a pair of sunglasses in my budget so I picked a pretty pair and now I can't stop wearing them - so comfy and no lines across my nose - yeah! They came in so handy too - we were in New York during the heat wave and it got up to 103 F one day so my little purchase really got me through that crazy weather - and in LA too - I wore them on Hermosa Beach and Santa Monica and felt like a million bucks because well, that's what a great pair of sunglasses can do for a girl, am I right!?
