Greenpoint Photo Shoot

140504-Laura-039-2

I  met the lovely and talented photographer Shang Saavedra through a mutual friend and when she asked if I’d be interested in posing for one of her in(SP)iration photo shoots, I said “Duh.” She came to Greenpoint, Brooklyn (my old ‘hood) early one Sunday morning and I showed her around while we took some fun photos.

Little Brown Bag

Screen shot 2013-07-19 at 6.30.33 PM

I love me a good bag. But I almost always wear black and, with just a few exceptions, I really don’t like how black and brown look together. So my brown bag collection is lacking.

We all love big, bold jewelry. But the thought of putting on a beautiful chunky necklace on before heading out into the muggy 90 degree heat makes me want to kick someone in the face.  So my go-to summer look is generally hair piled on top of my head and big earrings. Here are some […]

I’m in need of some time with the parentals and this little guy.  But before my trip I’m also in need of a beach ready wardrobe. Here’s my packing wishlist (from top left). (1) Diane Von Furstenberg […]

First of all, the photo above is from the Clarks catalog. Crazy, right? I don’t normally associate Clarks with summering in the Hamptons, but the times they are a-changing, I suppose. Second of all, if it ever decides to warm up in NYC, I’m going to need some new shoes. Here are my favorite heels, […]

Holla at your girl: Mother’s Day Gifts

Screen shot 2013-04-24 at 2.59.50 PM

It’s almost that time of year! The day we celebrate our lovely moms for taking on the unsavory task of raising us. We should all get them something really nice this year. That couldn’t have been much fun. This bouquet from LMD Floral is unreal, no? Could be a good option. But if you’re looking for […]

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Annabel Ingall’s gorgeous handbags ever since I came across them a few months back at Clic Gallery in Soho. (Sidenote: I want to live in Clic Gallery.
