Dreaming in lemon...

Dreaming of sitting on a beach in one of these little suits,
with a cute guy, sipping on some alcohol infused lemonade!

For me this is heaven.
Only a few more months!!

Fresh air please!

Photo by Carl Christensen

I've been a little homesick lately.
I really need some fresh, clean, New England air.

This photograph is so beautiful.
It allows me to take a deep breath in this crazy city.

My favorite dress of the night..

The color, the little bow brooch, her hair, 
the corset, the little skirt detail...
I love it all.

The accessories are absolutely perfect too.
Butterflies for fashion.

Because you love me.

The Atomic Bomber

This is my "if Stevie Nicks dated someone in The Clash"ensemble.

This bomber jacket is one of my favorite pieces in my closet.
It's warm and it's the statement piece of all statement pieces.
The other cool detail is my matching sweater and mitten set..
My youth meets my mid-twenties.
 It's really the new generation of sweater sets!
And you wouldn't have that rocker edge without the 
Dr. Marten combat boots.

Fashion Mission: Overalls

I was G chatting with my friend Sweet Dee 
the other day and she asked me a question which
inspired my newest fashion quest.

"Are overalls ever coming back?"

The answer is YES Dee!

Mission Overalls:

And I would wear them with these flat forms by Juicy Couture!

And my new sunnies.

I will make this happen by Spring.

The New Age Crown

{To: Taryn  Love Always, Top Shop.}

This was the perfect look for a night out
at the famously chic Indochine restaurant.

Super! Market

Once upon a time..
in a land called NoLita, 
there was a magical place called 
Super! Market.

And it is awesome. 

It's basically a farmer's market of the coolest
vintage and modern jewelry, accessories and clothing.

This is where I found what I like to call
 my first impulse purchase of NYC...
aka my 1970's  Celine Handbag.
It is the "gum" of my closet.

{this will be a post at some point in the future}

The first table at this "fantasy farmer's market" that 
 I was drawn to  belonged to this adorable French girl named
Virginie Millefiori.

I was initially drawn in by
her hot air balloon necklaces.

They reminded me of  my little girl silkscreen.

All of her pieces are playful and whimsical.

The best part of her pinwheel collection is that
the pinwheel rings actually spin!!!

Virginie's pieces are 14k gold plated with painted enamel.

Of course I couldn't walk away without
supporting this artist who was so excited, 
talented and more importantly humble!

I love supporting the arts when I can afford to!
I am super excited to say that I own the triangles bracelet-ring!

And this is how I style it..

Thank you Virginie! 
You were a pleasure to do business with!

One year later on LPD..

Yes, today marks one year of 
The Life of a Paperdoll.

Though it may just be a place where
I post pictures of my outfits and of parties 
I go to or places I've been, I feel proud
that the blog is still going and 
you dolls are still reading.

A lot has changed in one year.
My environment, my job... my life.
And I'm excited to share the next year with y'all! 

Happy Sunday.
