7 courses


I kept the hair up in a bun on route. Too humid otherwise…

Mode of transportation when it’s stupid traffic …

Over drinks at the restaurant, I let my hair down. Literally…

Waiting for a taxi home…

Dress: Diane von furstenberg. Sandals: Jeffrey Campbell. (Found similar sandals). Bag: Vintage. Jewellery: Street vendor and T&V

The boyfriend decided to treat us to a posh dinner down town Manhattan.
I wore the Diane von Furstenberg dress purchased last year on clearance. I fell in love with it from the first time I saw it when crashing NY Fashion Week and I got to see it a few feet away from me on the runway. What sold me was the model had both hands in each side pocket. Hang on. It has pockets too? That was it, I had to find one.

    I thought that dress looked familiar- a DVF! I love it on you, it’s as if it were made for you. And I actually really like your hair in a bun- you have the perfect face for it, perfectly proportioned and even a bit vulnerable (but in a really sweet and eccentric sort of way). I’d actually like to see the bun with some of your more edgier outfits, I think it’d possibly bring another element to the fabulous clothes you wear.

  2. Breeahna says:

    I think I prefer your hair in the top knot!? The dress is fecking amazing! I’m super envious!

  3. raquel & raul says:

    Awesome pictures! What setting did you use for the last two?

  4. Rachel says:

    Wow, great dress. The colors look so good on you. And there should definately be more dresses with pockets.
    And I also really like your hair up in a bun.

  15. DaniΓ«lle says:

    This dress looks amazing on you!

  16. Karen says:

    Glad you guys like the dress too. It got alot of compliments when I wore it that night (men and women!).

    I was a bit suprised on your reaction to the bun thing – thank you. I posted thinking ‘omg they are going to hate this’

    I have to admit that out of necessity I’ve been doing the top knot more often and sometimes I actually like it. Plan to see more of it soon : )

    Raquel & Amp – The camera setting is 2.8 apeture priority, ISO 400. Those last 2 are night shots so the shutter speed is very long to allow in as much light as poss, hence the blurred background. I have to stay VERY still or i’ll blur too (like the last one).

    Sandra!! – I was wondering how you were doing! I still think about that bag you had when we met. Give my love to Paula!!!!! Do you know her birthday pressie is still under my desk!?

    Antonia – Wouldn’t that be nice? Ok now I’ve slapped myself awake…ps. your message was passed on ; )

  17. Karl-Edwin Guerre says:

    YO!!! This is sooooooooo hot!!! great shots, great outfit, great subject…. the trifecta!

  18. raquel & raul says:

    Thanks so much for responding!

  19. Ola says:

  20. Ore, says:

    that maxi is stunning! πŸ™‚

  21. MODA CADISI says:

    Very nice dress, I think your hair was better with a top knot:)

  22. Old Cow says:

    Fafafafafab in that dress! I look swamped in such dresses I do so wish I could wear one too!

  23. budget chic says:

    I love the color and the fabric of that dress, I miss NYC!

  24. Susanna-Cole says:

    Wow your dress is gorgeous, I love long dresses, they always offer instant offer elegance, and the color palette of this one is fabulous too, it gives a more playful sense and definitly has a charming summer feel to it! πŸ™‚


  25. Karen says:

    G!! – I was wondering how you were doing. Thank you. Coming from a street style photographer like yourself that means ALOT.

    Ola & Moda – thank you. Its so damn humid, flowing poker straight hair is NOT an option so it works out : )

    Raquel – not a problem.

  26. Autour de toi says:

  29. anotherfishinthesea says:

    The dress is so beautiful and I love the shots with it billowing. I am slightly envious right now.

  30. Anonymous says:

    Girl, you look gorgeous here. I have always thought you should wear more colours because you have that amazing caramel complexion…And it’s summer…I know you are into that rock-chic look but bright colors do you way more justice…Look at all the comments you had on this post…Take note and let the dull colors go away for good!

  31. The Queen of Hearts says:

    Correction: best outfit post ever. There’s something about floor length, colorful dresses by DVF that just create magic, I swear.

  32. i-am-a-voodoo-child says:

    wow! you look like a hippie angel and I have to say you have the most beautiful shoulders I’ve ever see!
