Grey Area

8.20.2012


Alexander Wang skirt (similar look here), 
Zara tank (similar style here), 
Rose Gold booties, 
Vintage tassle necklace and rings, 
Alexander McQueen tote.

It's not often that we shoot in Manhattan, but with plans to hit up 5th Avenue for a little shopping trip, Micol couldn't help bringing her camera along in hopes we'd discover some cool new backdrops. 

The first few pics were taken at Drybar, whose white walls and crisp aesthetic immediately caught our eye amidst the bustle of the Flatiron district. A place entirely devoted to making your hair look fab with a blowdryer?  Sign us up!

Finding other interesting locations to shoot was tougher than we thought it'd be, however. Compared to our preferred locations in Brooklyn, everything on 5th Ave seemed so corporate and cold. We finally gave up in order to concentrate full time on shopping. And let's just say, we had better luck with that task.

  28. I've been meaning to try out Drybar here in SF but maybe I'll just make an appointment while I'm in IFBCON & LuckyFABB. You may not have found great spots to shoot but the look is stellar. Perfectly New York and I'm drooling over the booties :)
