In our last one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn, we were inspired by the vibe in Miami so if you ever walked in you saw a bright colors and plants everywhere. At least I hope it was Miami-styled and not some Wizard of Oz technicolor over-the-rainbow nightmare. We have since moved into a 3-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn and had the opportunity to start fresh with a blank canvas; literally. All the walls were white and there were so many of them–we were actually intimidated by so much space. Maybe that’s why it took 3 months to finally do something about them…and the final verdict was to leave them white, but in a creative way that would allow us to nest yet live in a sophisticated space.

What do you wear on your first date with some one new? You want to make a good impression right? Or are those days over? Is it more about how sexy you look, feel, and want to be preceived? Have we moved away from the first-date wardrobe jitters? In case you haven’t–here’s a video with a few tips from a few New Yorkers on first-date wardrobe.

Fashion Friday Tip: Accessorize, people! Make your office outfits adorable, show that you like to play! William’s hat is a great example of how much more interesting can your outfit get. And Emilia’s red sunglasses are totally cool. Two more details I love about these folks’ outfits! Look at the length of William’s pants. Exactly! The boy understands it so well, oh so well! I think that in general we wear our pans and sleeves too long. The shorter, the funkier 😉 And Emilia’s shoes. Perfection!
