Have you ever watched the sun rise over the greatest city in the world?

A weekend in photos, from makeup buys to tropical drinks and birthday suits (by that I mean fur).

While embellishment-design planning for senior collection, I stopped in a beading shop on Broadway & 37th, where these darling little fish were just begging to be bought.

Finally… nothing lifts a hangover like a table full of Indian jewels.

You may ask “why?” but I ask, “why not?”…
