A few of you asked for me to “stand up” so that you could see my whole look when I introduced you all to Falstaff. Well you are in luck! There were a few full body photos. The entire look is below.

I took these photos across the street from the Natural History Museum. I had this novel idea that I would take my picture (wearing my puffin sweater) with the famed dinosaur skeleton in the lobby.
Puffin+Dino= Instant Animal Theme!!
Well, my animal theme plans were soon foiled. I did a quick location scout and realized that every Upper West Sider in the city was also in the lobby of the Natural History Museum just milling around and generally being in the way of my plans for an epic animal theme (let me just say “animal theme” again to really drive my point home — animal theme). So, I am really sorry, dinosaur. No photos for you. The sidewalk wins again.

These photos were taken at the now defunct Lenox Lounge in Harlem. Since it was such a major hotspot in the neighborhood, the community was pretty depressed when it shut down. However, there are whispers that it is making its triumphant return down the block at a venue that charges less rent.

I would like to take a moment to commend the amazing men and women of the fashion blogging universe for taking outfit photos all year ’round. That ish is hard. So hard, I have developed the dreaded freezing fists.
What is freezing fists you ask?
Well, friend, freezing fists happen when you go out to take outfit photos and your fists get so cold that they involuntarily ball up into tiny frozen fists in a commendable, but ultimately failing, effort to warm themselves. Freezing fists are often found in every outfit photo taken between the months of November and March. Please see the photo below for an in-depth analysis:
Like I always say, suffer the cold fashionably, y’all! ( I have actually never said that. I usually suffer the cold quite unfashionably, but this year we’re turning things around, people!)
Have y’all seen that Tommy Hilfiger commercial where everyone is all dressed up in their most preppy duds and they are dancing around at what appears to be a moderately fun house party? Yea, well I am hoping this outfit will gain me admission to that moderately fun party. Then, in the morning, I will meet Daphne at the Club to nurse my hangover with a bloody Mary brunch. After brunch I will put on my tennis whites and pretend to play tennis, but really I will just sit on the Club’s south-view veranda and drink more.
Back to reality, you can tell by these photos that my hair is CRAZY dry (it gets that way sometimes — esp in the winter). I am going to try my first at-home protein treatment today. So I will let you know how it goes!

Wearing chunky faux fur this close to my face makes me think of Game of Thrones (I mean, obviously.) I basically look exactly like Jon Snow in these pictures. It’s uncanny.
