Style Story: A Weekend In The Rain

It might be an unpopular opinion but I love a good weekend in the rain. While most people opted to stay in, I decided to enjoy what felt like a ghost town. No weather was quite more fitting to grab a steaming fresh bowl of ramen downtown and finally run that errand that never left the to-do list. This year, I didn’t have a particular costume in mind but my regular wardrobe. This yellow puffer jacket is from the men’s section and it’s probably the brightest thing I own. Layered on top of my favorite turtle neck and pair of overalls, it was quite an easy rainy day look. Stomping around downtown was also made easy with new go-to black boots.

The impromptu rain also brought the perfect setting to spend quality time with the one I love. With no specific Halloween weekend plans on the agenda, the extent of our Halloween weekend celebrations included a trip to the movies with popcorn and buncha crunch. The jam-packed theater filled with other movie-goers told us we weren’t the only ones that had the right idea. I really love a good weekend full of unexpected bliss moments.

If I can describe this year in one word, it’s “unpredictable.” And if I learned anything at all it’s that what I do with unpredictability is what will pave way for what’s to come. What flows, flows. What crashes, crashes. I no longer force things or search for any explanation. Sometimes, it’s easier to take things for what they are and to not analyze it for something deeper to make sense of it or to even change it. Just like the unpredictability of rain, I learned to embrace the uncertainties of life. It’s so satisfying to change any situation with a positive perspective.

In the end, I am truly happier and more free.

Polar Vortex

For the first time in all of the fashion weeks that I've attended since sophomore year of college, I avoided the subway as much as possible. Winter is getting to me.

Aside from what I thought were powerful and empowering collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Prabal Gurung, Lacoste, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Mr. Self Portrait, WhoWhatWear, Coach, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren and many others, this season's New York Fashion Week not only took my breath away but it also swept me off of my feet. Of course I'm speaking in a more literal sense that I am figuratively. From sweater/ leather weather to two heat-techs and a heavy parka to raincoats and umbrellas in a matter of days, Mother Nature sure knew how to provide the best weather conditions to challenge all fashionistas who dared brave her wrath this season.

I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the wind tunnel she created outside of the Artbeam on Monday (aka Day 5 of NYFW.) It's like she knew how much I liked candid hair action in my photos. Or being swept off of my feet even when it's not Valentine's Day.
Crazy wind chills and literally zero cabs in sight and my Lyft being ten minutes away, I opted for a photoshoot. And after my hands and face turned completely numb, I quickly wanted to forgo the idea and seek refuge in a much warmer place preferably with a burger and fries and a shake.

After Jason's fingers have fallen off from clicking the shutter too many times, our Lyft finally arrived. We  made a wise decision of heading straight to Black Tap
Craft Burgers and Beer.

If you've never been, you've got to!
