If you’re strutting around the Lincoln Center during NYFW, you
know that chances are big of being photographed by a street style photographer.
Me however, I was helping out one of my designer friends with his backstage
show and the most important thing was being comfortable while running up and
down the show. So the outfit choice of the day consisted of a polka dot shirt
and marine striped shorts, bought somewhere 3 years ago, but apparently still
good to go, posing here for a street style photographer.
If your apartment has the size of a shoe box, you need to go and look for your own
garden in Manhattan. I have been spending these last days of Summer on the
High Line, the architectural park between the Meatpacking area and Chelsea, built
on an old railroad spur.
Peekaboo! Here I am, blending in with nature, wearing a unique design by Suno.
I think we are entering a last round of ALS ice bucket
challenges this week before it is completely going to die and something new
“I nominate my ex boyfriend for the boiling water bucket” I’ve
read the other day on somebody’s Facebook wall. So good, I thought, I wish I
could come up with such a catchy tagline!
But maybe we mustn’t judge so much you know? And maybe we mustn’t get so
crazy about social media neither?
Remember how just 3 weeks ago, right before the ice bucket trend,
every single person on every single social media channel (probably yourself as
well) had put up a picture of the late Robin Williams? I get the whole respect
thing, his death was a tragic loss, especially for the real fans out there but
it felt as if everyone was trying to compete on putting up the most creative
and the most rare old school photo of him for the sake of social media. Some
for attention, others in remembrance and nostalgia I guess.
Anyhow, as buckets of ice water have been pouring the past
weeks I could see some similarities, like who has the coolest connections and
gets nominated and nominates at his turn somebody slightly famous or important.
Again, we shouldn’t judge so much. I’m not a hater and I didn’t miss the
campaign’s point neither, it just makes you wonder about all viral trends.
