Greetings from The Empire Stateby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 30th, 2010
Hi everyone! After a long trek through the Miami Internation Airport and a delayed flight, I finally made it into the city around midnight. However, I will say that my flight – which is usually filled with fear, sweaty palms, and shaky hands – was a little bit more peaceful this time. I had the pleasure of reading If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You, the book written by PR power woman, Kelly Cutrone. It’s a really great book that I read in one sitting and enjoyed every minute of it. I’m going to leave the details of it for another post though!
As for today, my morning started really early thanks to the kids screaming and the school across the street. After lounging around Ludlow for a bit, we made our way to Soho for some Dean & DeLuca bagels. This was around the time I told Nicholas I wouldn’t be spending any money this month on anything I didn’t absolutely need. I’m sad to announce that that little pact lasted a good five minutes. What broke it? A pair of white jean shorts at 30% off that screamed summer. I know what you’re thinking but hey – I needed shorts! After breaking my golden rule, we headed to Bloomies to find Nicholas some pants which we did find, at a great price I may add. Next thing we know, we’re riding the NRW uptown to walk around and spend some time sitting in Central Park. It really was a beautiful day. Oh! We also spent about an hour in the beautiful Japanese Tea House. It was so nice and the tea was amazing!
Wow! What a detailed post! I hope you guys don’t mind.
Coachella, 2010.by Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 28th, 2010
After years of trying to make it to Coachella i finally had the chance to pack my bags and head to the west coast. It was like something out of a dream. Watching the sunset over the California sky with some of my best friends was something that will never leave me. All I want is to be back in the desert dancing with my friends and the mountains. Can’t wait for next year! Also, listen to this.
Fashion Ebayby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 28th, 2010
If you’re like me, you love to search Ebay for last seasons shoes at discount prices. Well – good news! eBay has just made shopping a little bit easier for us! Last night, eBay launched its fashion spot which enables us to search for what we want, or what we could possibly want, by suggesting similar shoes, bags, ect. I just tried it out this morning and it seems to work pretty well. However, when I type in a certain designer, it just brings me back to the regular old eBay we know and love. One piece of advice from someone who bids on Ebay more than they should: don’t give up looking for what you want. After months of searching for this Stella McCartney wedge on eBay, I finally came across my size at %90 off the regular price. So, Happy Bidding!

The last few days at the office have been full of scanning. I decided to take this opportunity to share some of my favorites from different photographers. Enjoy!

A really bad black and white print I did back in my first semester of college. I have no patience for the developing process.

Disposable camerasby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 16th, 2010
Under my bed, you’ll find a box full of prints from my high school years. In my iPhoto, you’ll find thousands (6,372 to be exact. Yes- time to delete some) of digital pictures from my high school years. Which have a better chance of surviving till the end? The actual physical prints. What if Apple goes out of business (yeah right) and won’t save my beautiful Macbook after its been crashed? What if Hurricane Andrew pt.2 comes and my Macbook drowns? Yeah, probably none of those events will ever occur but I actually enjoy having a picture I can physically hold in my hand. The End.
To accompany my rant, I’ve included some prints from the past years.
The Keysby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 16th, 2010
I have always loved this photo I took of Nikki and Mollie in the Florida Keys in 2007. It’s not edited or anything so it’s not spectacular but sometime about the expressions on their faces are so great.
Sew me upby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 16th, 2010
I’ll start off by posting this dress I made about a year ago. I call it the peacock dress because well – it has peacock feathers. This dress was pretty hard to make because it has boning in the bust as well as multiple layers of tulle on the skirt. The cinching of the tulle in the skirt area was achieved all by hand. I would take a single layer of tulle and sew a piece of thread at the top. Then I would pull back at the fabric so it would crunch up on the thread. This took a lot of time as you can imagine. I’ve actually never worn this out anywhere and plan on putting it in a frame much like this so I can hang out in my house one day.

I want to share with you this wedding shot by Jill Thomas. I love how New York City is the backdrop to all of these shots!
The Sartorialist hits homeby Elizabeth Jaime posted at April 13th, 2010
A few years ago I just happened to walk by Lismore Hosiery Co. on the day the shop was moving out. Lismore had been a hosiery wholesaler for decades on the Lower East Side and before that a pizzeria.
I’m not going to romanticize the place and say it was a treasure or anything but you just don’t see this type of interior in New York much anymore.
It’s funny how often I find myself relating to certain posts.
