It’s interesting to see how small the world is and the limitless connection we unknowingly build everyday. During a recent holiday celebration, I spoke with a gentleman who works at Rogan NYC and he explained how he had a friend at the John Varvato Bowery shop. To my curiosity, I asked him who his friend’s name was and it coincidently turned out to be the same person that assisted me with my recent python skin hi-top Converse purchase!

I couldn’t help but notice that similar connection I build when Karen sent me a tweet asking me what kind of camera I used. And what initially started off as a twitter conversation ended with me asking her if she would be interested in taking photos as part of my “In The Spotlight” feature. I was actually familiar with Karen’s blog ever since a friend introduced it to me; so I was interested in meeting this creative fashionista myself. What I love about Karen is not only her energy, but also her ability finding vintage treasures and creating DIY items such as her studded bag. Overall, the shoot was definitely fun and I was glad that we extended our day by sitting down for a late brunch at Schiller’s, one of her favorite restaurants located in the Lower East Side.

    Okay, that fuzzy hat, and the languid way in which she wears it, is absolutely fantastic. It takes balls to mix so many different elements (giant hat, over-the-knee boots, ARM WARMERS geez), but somehow she makes it work. Clearly, I need some pointers.
