It is often said about New Yorkers that we don't know our neighbors. For the most part, this may be true, but not necessarily if you live in Brooklyn. I was recently strolling down Franklin Avenue in my Greenpoint neighborhood and met the wonderful people behind Hayden-Harnett, the best boutique (and coolest shopping) that Brooklyn has to offer. Just weeks later, I found myself appearing in their fall newsletter called "IRL" which stands for In Real Life.
The concept of my task was simple: choose some outfits and explain why I selected them. I felt like Cinderella at the ball! I shared the page with Anne Sage of San Francisco, a woman with great style who is also behind the blog, The City Sage and co founder of Rue Magazine. Together, we "creative blondes" picked some very stylish ensembles! Above, are three of my favorite looks that I chose from Hayden-Harnett's new fall line. I don't want to spoil all the fun though, so check out the full newsletter here.
There's another part to this story- Hayden-Harnett's Brooklyn store also has some of my artwork featured with a kick-off that started with a party celebrating New York Fashion Week's FNO (Fashion's Night Out).
