“He was lost on that troubled night – but we will always wake for him, so that his time, which was not doubled, but cut in half, will live forever in our memory, and in our beguiled and broken hearts.

We dared to think, in that other Irish phrase, that this John Kennedy would live to comb gray hair, with his beloved Carolyn by his side. But like his father, he had every gift but length of years.

We who have loved him from the day he was born, and watched the remarkable man he became, now bid him farewell.” - Ted Kennedy

NY Fashion Week Inspiration

The countdown for my trip to NY Fashion Week has begun and I have less than a week to get my outfits together. I guess the best way to describe my inspirations are the ultimate downtown girl chic. A mix of wild child Kate moss cross bred with the classic style of Caroline Bessette Kennedy. I know strange combo, but I’m a Gemini.

Statement Print Jacket dresses up any outfit. I love a leopard. It may be winter but you don’t have to look frumpy in a big old coat.

Party dress with a blazer.

Fur vest you can wear for casual chic.

A must always, a crisp white shirt. Can be worn day or night.

Classic influence. Timeless, these images are from late 90’s, these looks still work now especially for the ultimate downtown NY girl.

I love shorts and boots. Something I’ll likely wear to night time event or a late night after party at SLS, Boom Boom or The Box.

Anyone of you tumblrs going to be in NY for Fashion Week? What are you wearing and what shows are you hitting up?
