There was alot going on in September yet somehow the month didn't seem to zoom by as quickly as August. The weather actually still felt somewhat summer up until the last week and now my outerwear is out. Here are a few highlights recently as seen through my lens and posted on Instagram. As usual, I'm not going to overload you with a million pics here so to see more, click over to my Instagram feed and you can also follow if you'd like.
New York is known as the city that never sleeps and it is sometimes even more vibrant and full of energy after dark. I love how the new World Trade Center just lights up our downtown skyline. I caught this spectacular view at the Blue Les Copains show at the Top of the Standard. And check out this gorgeous technicolor sunset too!
I attended a few NYFW shows and one of them was for Taiwanese designer Malan Breton's SS2016 collection. The menswear portion featured traditionally inspired Hakka blue shirts and the giant red umbrellas really brought a sense of drama to the presentation.
My recently acquired New Balance 620 sneakers have been getting alot of wear lately.The first day of fall in New York City was beautiful, sunny and warm but not hot. I wish it could be like this all the time.
Some signs of fall. It can be so pretty when the leaves are turning in the city.
Beautiful Beaux Arts architectural details spotted outside the Duke Semans Mansion on the Upper East Side.
Tasty pork and leek spring roll salad from Sam's Spring Rolls on the Lower East Side. There are so many great dining options in that neighborhood that we want to explore.
Snowskin mooncakes for the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival. I've never been a big fan of mooncakes. The snowskin ones are prettier than the regular ones but they don't taste any better in my opinion, just sweeter which is definitely not my cup of tea.
We finally made it Smorgasburg in Brooklyn and East Coast Poke was one of our favorites along with these fries and and this taco.
New to my beauty stash is AB cult favorite Son & Park Beauty Water which can be used as a cleansing water or toner and their Beauty Gel with encapsulated oxygen that I've been using as a primer. Beauty Water is available for $25 at Memebox and Beauty Gel is $30 through Sokoglam. Let me know if you'd like to see a full review on these.
