My Weekends: Chelsea

Chelsea holds a dear place in my heart.  Not only is it the home of my school, FIT, it also has the most darling side streets, both my favorite French restaurant, La Grainne Cafe, and my favorite bakery, Billy’s Bakery, and of course Chelsea Market (though that may be Meatpacking technically).

I took these pictures about a month ago in the Meatpacking district.  At first I just thought the Moschino windows were funny, which is why I began taking pictures, but then I got down to Alexander McQueen and was literally awe struck.  Three dresses from his final collection were standing before me.  So obviously I went inside and it took everything I had not to touch the dresses.  Seriously, everything.

I went back a few days later and there were different dresses in the window, it must have been a rotating collection.

The shadow on the Stella McCartney window kind of ruins it, but I love the graphic from the ad with Natalia Vodianova.

Building Code

Between my internship, my job, and just my daily life I have been (literally) trekking all over Manhattan the past few months and with the help of my trusty iPhone (yes, that is a shameless Apple plug) I have been able to take some pictures of beautiful, often passed over buildings, and quickly upload them to my computer.  I have amassed a little collection of these, and there will of course be more of these pictures as the year goes on.
