Getting Lost in the Park

The black dress appears again! This is not really one of my better or more interesting looks. I just decided on something easy. And I’m notorious for wearing sleeveless things even in the dead of winter. I’m not really in a park– it’s Stuyvesant Town. Stuyvesant Town is a pretty old development so the trees are very tall, like in all the older parks in New York. Hardly any of the city is visible, so it barely even feels like Manhattan. It’s interesting to step off the street and immediately be somewhere so quiet.

And okay, seriously… you see all those green trees? It’s barely even fall. But yeah, these photos are from October.

Later on after I got lost in the park I met Nnenna to take some photos before having pho for dinner. We went inside the courtyard of St. Mark’s Church. It’s not a high traffic area and a good place for a photoshoot.

On Alex: London Fog trench, Alexander Wang dress, Target boots, Martine’s Dream scarf (Brooklyn Flea), Longchamp bag.

On Nnenna: Target Trench and Tights, Forever 21 Dress (underneath), Steve Madden Flats, Lulu’s Bag.

Other ways I’ve worn this dress:

    I love the many ways you’ve worn this dress- it’s such a versatile piece!  And I like our little spot in the churchyard- we’ll have to go again earlier in the day :)

      This dress is one of my favorite pieces of clothing. And yes, it is comfortable. It’s the second black jersey Alex Wang I have… and I’ll likely be picking up a third during the after-holiday sales!

    I like the shot where you can see the lining of the coat, mixed with the scarf, you’ve got some pattern and color + the utilitarian boots and I think you’ve succeeded in dressing it down pretty well.

    Also, never let those boring green leaves ruin your fall photos, just make them orange in photoshop ;)

      You have no idea how many tries it took to get that shot. Too bad I deleted all the bloopers already– hard drive overflowing. 

      Ha! I’m probably too lazy to make them orange. But of course I’ll be pushing up the saturation of the yellow leaves I’ve been photographing with lately…
