Brooklyn & Vogue

I went walking in Brooklyn yesterday with my friends Katherine and Peter. We found some interesting graffiti -- though nothing spectacular, at least from my perspective -- and I had a great time exploring two new neighborhoods, Sunset Park and Bay Ridge. It felt good to spend time outside, under the yellowing autumn leaves, though I wish I’d worn another layer of clothing. I was just in a t-shirt, and the wind coming off the harbor was COLD!

Last night, I went to see “The September Issue,” the documentary about Anna Wintour and Vogue magazine. It was a fun, interesting movie -- I think it did a great job conveying the beauty and energy of the fashion industry. I am not a fashion person at all, but it left me thinking I should be more careful about the way I dress! (That feeling lasted about an hour.)

I’m going to the Zendo this morning, for the first time in about two months. I’m long overdue! And then I’m seeing Dave -- yay! -- for a wine and cheese tasting at a restaurant in Greenwich Village. More about that tomorrow!

  1. NYC is such a fashion city. I loved reading Tim Gunn's book about Quality, Taste, and Style. It all made so much sense, but after the last page I lapsed back into my unfashionable rut.

    Sounds like a great afternoon and a great chance to catch up with Dave. I hope he is surviving band season!

    I love the perspective of the photo.

  2. I love the beginning of fall. The crispness of the morning is just wonderful.

  3. Sounds like the usual fabulous Steve weekend. I love the way you live your life.
