Lookbook: Eighth Street

October 21, 2011

Blouse, Millau. Vest, Piperlime. Denim leggings, Topshop. Pumps, Jessica Simpson. Latte, The Bean.

Life at NYU seems to be a play in contrasts: One minute, you can be at an art show in Brooklyn or enjoying your 23rd floor view of Manhattan; the next, you can be eating dining hall food out of take-out containers in the library and comparing prices on laundry detergent.

These photos, taken by my fabulously talented friend Kristina, sum up that contrast perfectly. Sure, it’s fun to go heavy on the glamour at 2:00 in the afternoon in fur and lipstick and heels  – but ultimately, we were wandering around in a dark, gritty subway station. Welcome to college. (However, the afternoon did have some glamour to it. After playing model, I went uptown to meet my friend Sydney at Via Quadronno, where we chatted about blogging and boys, college and careers. Go take a look at her blog! She’s going to go far, for sure.)

In these photos, I’m holding my daily indulgence, a drink from The Bean. Conveniently located a block from my dorm, it’s one of my favorite spots in the city! Try their dirty chai lattes and adorable macarons.

That’s all for today – time to study, write, and later on, enjoy more of that mega-glam dining hall dinner we all know and love…
