On the Street... Upper East Side, NY

Sometimes I like to pretend that I'm The Sartorialist. I snapped this photograph of my lovely friend Linda while waiting for the bus. (Very glamourous, the life I lead, I know.) We were headed downtown to attend the FIJI Water Holiday Cookie Swap and Bake Off.

Linda was kind enough to answer a few questions...

What are you wearing?
Zara faux fur coat, Vince oversized button down, Uniqlo leopard belt (but you can't see it), American Apparel leggings, Frye boots, Olivia Harris leather bag, Ray Ban aviators

What are some of your style inspirations?
runway looks, street style blogs, menswear, vintage

Favorite designers/brands?
DVF, Walter, Surface to Air, Uniqlo, and any good Target-designer collabo

What are you looking forward to most about spring?
Bare legs, light jackets, and al fresco dining!

These delightful Chocolate Malt cookies were made by our friend E of Culinary Studio. (Read more about the event and these cookies on his blog here.)

I loved browsing the cookie selection and ended up with a tin full of goodies. In the end though, the majority of the cookies were donated and enjoyed by the kitchen staff of the restaurant where M works. I decided to be nice and share, and also really didn't need to eat all of these cookies myself. They lasted about 5 minutes in the kitchen.

Loved these lamps that were hanging in the venue. 


  1. Not sure what looks better - Linda's kick butt street style or those scrumptious cookies!

  2. She looks great, thanks for snapping her pic Sartorialist style. :)

  3. Great picture! Linda's look is awesome! Luv that coat!

  4. You have a great sense of humor. Linda is gorgeous.

  5. I love that fur coat!

  6. Cookies? Oh I am jealous.

    Just Better Together is having a giveaway!

  7. Linda is beautiful!!! Those cookies look so yummy!

  8. I tend to shun "faux," but I've seen some really pretty ones lately, Linda's being one. Very nice! Oh and that last pic of the lanterns is to die for...

  9. Linda is gorgeous! I love her look and her outfit. Those cookies!! YUM!

  10. I do believe we all have our moments and want to be like the Sartorialist.
