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.

These photos were shot in sunny, gorgeous Virginia! My hubby and I came into town to see my lovely parents and their new dog (who you will meet tomorrow). The weather was beautiful and it was great to shed my coat for a few days.

I spent the bulk of this shoot dancing around because it was colder than cold outside and dancing is the #1 most effective way to warm yourself — trust me, I’m a doctor.
Would you all mind if, from now until April, I just wore my giant winter coat in every single outfit post? If you want, I will even switch up the scarf I wear! Any takers? No? Okay.

I just couldn’t resist the urge to make cheesy collages to highlight 2012.
What a great year it was!
I had some great life updates in 2012. I put my favorite moments in this collage.
I got married ♥ I went on a glorious honeymoon ♥ I celebrated three years as a Harlem gangsta ♥ I got bangs ♥ I have been blogging for nearly four years (though, in my humble opinion, I hit my stride this year.)
This year I tried to introduce way more outfit posts and change this blog from a fashion inspiration blog to more of a style diary. It has been a great journey refining my personal style and showing off my tendency to wear the same thing over and over again on the blog.
In 2013 — expect even more outfit posts!
Happy New Year!
