Yesterday was so nice in NYC. Finally! All this rain and humidity had me in such a funk. Been gone for a week or so focusing on getting life back on track. I’m focused man!
I saw a picture a few days ago of Zoe Deschanel in a baby doll dress. And the caption read something like would you wear a babydoll dress and 60% of people said no. What?! Why?! Welp, I decided to take mine out the closet and I love it. It’s so comfortable and cute. Not to mention perfect for Spring days.
I love The Gift Man. So I paid a return visit. Bought more shades and they had a new display. Old lamps with super hero lamp shades. Totally cute. And this time I met the owner, Jack. Hi Jack! The Gift Man was featured a few weeks back on my blog here. Definitely a place to get funky sunglasses and cute little gifts for people. I also got those grey frames from here also. His store is located on 176 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
This one I got at my last visit, but it didn’t photograph well. So here it is again.
It’s the first of May and with the rains, fog and humidity earlier in the day, came allergy attacks. Late for work to boot, I just threw something on quickly and figured since my eyes were too irritated for makeup, there was no better time to try out my new geek chic frames. I got mixed reviews… On the street, on my way to work and during lunch, I had soo many stares. The wierd thing is usually I will get the “suits” scanning me up and down (as I am a lot of the time dressed in office attire) but now it was “trendy/hipster” guys checking me out. No scanning up and down, just like all in my face saying hello. So I kind of found it interesting that this radically different look attracted different people (yeah, i know, I think way too much into things, lol). Maybe I look smarter or something? I don’t know. It could be also that they were grey and not the typical black so i stood out more? Anyways, the gurlies loved to hate it and then I had some were really nice girls who wanted to know where I got them while I was shopping at LF. Who says New Yorkers don’t talk to one another! I love these frames. Nothing like trying a new look!

I posted this pic because of my number one blog on everything shoes, Shoecloszet.com! The lovely author of the site and I sidetracked from commenting about her big news–She made 50k views today (congrats again!) to taking pictures of yourself and being photogenic. And I feel this picture doesn’t necessarily highlight my beauty but for some reason others found beauty in it. It just makes me that much confident in myself (because any blogger knows, it takes confidence to post yourself and your opinions for the world to view and scrutinize). So Ms. Shoecloszet, I am expecting to see your OOTD soon! xoxoxo.
While waiting for an “EXPRESS” train for 12 minutes (Oo), my girlfriend snapped some pics. Everywhere I go and I wear these sunglasses evryone asks me where I got them from or I get wierd stares like WTF does she have on her face? I love these shades. They look like teashades (think Ozzy Ozborne sunglasses) but a modern version. So I coined it modified teashades. I got them from the The Gift Man in Park Slope. I blogged about this store and its wonderful treasures. Check out the previous post here.
