Love of Style

“One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.”

Seeking the intrinsic beauty amidst the droning chaos in the city demonstrates a daily challenge. The portrayal of unique style between the melding of the multitude of cultures, however, proves to alleviate that stress.

From the contrasting cozy studios in walk-ups and the highrises with classic nine layouts to the three-piece suits in the early morning trains and contemporary hipster-chic urbanites to the seasons changing with sweltering summers and frigid winters, I truly can't get enough of the ever-changing whims of the inhabitants and physique of this city.

Although I look to New York and its city dwellers for creativity in design, cooking, and traveling, I learned best from my mother about true style. She embodies the traditional elegance and classic beauty throughout all aspects of her life that I can only hope to achieve.

Here's to timeless inspiration, to endlessly being guided by our surroundings.
