i’ve had a wonderful time getting to know you, but i feel like we just havent shared enough.

tell me what you do, how you stay busy, how your day was…

unwind and relax…  - oh no, i’ll get the wine, dinners in the oven, lets just curl up and type like no ones watching…

Q
is living in nyc as intense as everyone makes it seem? ppl always say "everyone is fighting to survive here" and use other really dramatic statements to describe their experience.

everyone is fighting to survive everywhere. i am very very fortunate. i have a family member with deep roots here in the new york, so moving here was not as difficult an experience for me as it is for many. but its still certainly no leisurely stroll. noone slows down here, for anything. and its easy to get wrapped up into that. its for some people & very much not for others.

Q
do you like the people in fashion? they're not as sweet as you are
from:Anonymous
A

you know, i hate to generalize because fashion as an industry is so dynamic and broad. however, fashion, at least the fashion i’ve been exposed to in new york city has been very underwhelming. i’ve met some of the best people in my life via fashion platforms or connects, but i’ve also met some of the most empty, false people and its a bummer. but, some people in all industries suck. ukno?

Q
i'm moving to nyc in a few months. do you have a favorite spot in the big city where you can just relax from all the hectic chaos around you? maybe a place in central park or a specific cafe? thanks x

i do. i think thats an important part of city culture. i spend much of my weekday’s working from cafe’s or home. theres a small, rather poorly run and incredibly slow paced coffee shop on the lower east side called Cocoa Bar. for the life of me, i have absolutely no idea how they stay in business. everything is insanely cheap and it’s seldom full. it takes 6 minutes to get a coffee, even if its empty. but the place is just so damn charming. they play all sorts of bizarre music and throw open the doors even when it’s cold. the staff is just so god damn charming in an ‘sort of odd’ way that i cant stop going back. i dont even drink coffee.

theres a small park near my apartment on avenue B (btwn 5th & 6th) that just reopened after Sandy. Its divided up into wait-listed gardening plots and theres always so much organic city movement there. people from all over - real locals. no young kids worried about what other people look like, or whose looking at them. under a big tree there’s a bin of random books, on the other side there is a little turtle pond. its fucking perfect. i ate lunch there today and lost myself. shout out to Merideth Genin who i spoke to today for about 30 minutes - if anyone needs a holistic health educator living in the east village since 82’ - you let me know.

Q
This is a series of statements, not questions. #sorrynotsorry 1) I just read 43 pages back into your archives. Wow! 2) I see that your style has evolved a little. I think I liked 2012 the most, though pieces from Fall '11 were great, as well as your current shoes. You certainly know how to wear it! 3) I think you gained some weight. Not badly, but I thought you should know because I don't know if you have looked at 43 pages of your own archives. 4) You sometimes look like a young Michael Buble.
