NYC vs SF style
Ever since our move back to NYC, my personal style has been on a tilt, but I’d like to see that in a good way. In SF, a lot of times I struggled being the most dressed up person in the room. And believe me most times, I wasn’t even wearing heels.
I’m not sure what it is about NYC, but people here always dress to impress. Yes, the style is a bit more relaxed these days, and sneakers are acceptable [on occasion]. However, when it’s past 6pm on a Friday night, you won’t see a woman out without heels, even in Lower East Side. So as you can imagine, while I love keeping my California cool, I’ve been getting a bit dressier.
Bomber jacket trend has taken over the whole planet, and I obviously took my time to find the one. This Issey Miyake number was love at first sight, dressy yet cool. The pleats structure kind of reminds me of NYC architecture. Plus, it takes me back to the days I used to wear a bomber in high school. Mix nostalgia with modernism, and good things will happen.
