One of the last beautiful fall days before dreary winter arrives. The sun was shining so brightly I couldn’t resist a leisurely walk in Central Park. It was too warm for a coat, but too cool to go without. I went with layers and tried to wear as many colors as possible. I think I did a good job–purple, hunter green, orange, white, tan. Oddly enough, this color palate is reminiscent of the previous decorating scheme for my living room…

It’s been unseasonably warm lately and I took advantage of the nice weather to check out the skaters in Bryant Park. This year, I’m determined to go out for a spin. I’m not very good, but neither are most of the people out there. I recently picked this dress up at Lucky Shops. It’s a lightweight cotton, but can be layered many different ways, so I’m sure I’ll be wearing it all winter. The print reminds me a little of bats. Is that weird?

For my second photography class, I struggled to get my final project to work. I never did. The night before the class exhibition I scrapped my project and started over. I was sitting on the subway, stressing about the assignment and thinking what I was going to do when I got home. So I grabbed the tripod and next thing you know, I had a final project I loved…

This infinity scarf is one of my favs. I love wrapping it around and around and then snuggling down into it. Perfect for cold winter days. It even makes a decent hood in a pinch. I have to thank Mom–when I couldn’t find one here, she picked this one up at her local mall (well, I had called ahead and put it on hold…). She liked it so much, she even bought one for herself.

Rushing out the door this morning, I noticed I had grabbed brown tights instead of black. Turns out, they really make the outfit and show off my new favorite shoes.

As for the Gap wedges, I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes. Despite the 4 1/2″ heel, they are super comfortable. Everyone has been asking, and I say I could easily walk miles in them. In fact, I think I did today while running errands. I will be wearing these beauties a lot……

Years ago I went on a mission to find a vintage Lite-Brite because I thought it would make a cool art piece in my apartment. I found one, but never really had enough room to make it a cool art piece. And to be honest, I wasn’t that skilled at creating my own designs. So out it went and I’ve never given it a second thought. Until now. This video is AMAZING!! It’s a love story told through stop-motion animation on a Lite-Brite. Be sure to listen to the lyrics, you’re heart will melt.

According to Yahoo, this video took “more than 700,000 vintage Lite-Brite pegs, and the help of 83 friends who’ll probably never want to look at another Lite-Brite peg for the rest of their lives, the David Crowder Band created the video over the course of 2,150 hours and 148 pizzas. They literally made things with light, and the result–a 2D tale of true love–is electric indeed.”
