What to WEAR in NYC (New York City) – EARLY- MID SEPT

August 25th, 2018

General Tips: Casual Chic is the New York Style. People no longer dress for the theater or museums, although looking smart is always in style. All black is common for a New Yorker,  but you need not comply with this.

WHAT TO WEAR:

YES – do bring your white jeans and comfortably wear them until mid September. Although its post Labor Day, the rules have changed and the temps can still be in the low 80’s.

Great outfit for warm September day in new york city

 

DO

  • Pair your white, blue or black jeans with a non- white short sleeve top or off the shoulder to for the daytime shopping, lunching, meandering.
  • For dinner and/or theater, opt for a stylish top with a  light-weight jacket (jean, cloth, light leather, blazer.)  A simple dress with a light leather jacket is always a winner.
  • Feet: Post Labor Day, you may want to leave your very casual sandals and flop flops home. However, open toe boots, closed flats, closed low boots(booties) and cool sneakers are definitely “right” for this season.

NO NO’s:

  •  Stay away from white on white outfits.
  • Leave your summer florals home
  • No need for heavy wool sweaters
  • Do NOT wear fur trimmed or sequin items.
  • Do NOT bring a cocktail dress for dinner out , unless you are invited to a legitimate cocktail party which calls for this.

June 14th, 2018

A GREAT LATE DAY INTO EVE on One Block of the the Lower East Side NYC. NORFOLK ST.

Lower East Side speakeasy

Once upon a time, the Lower East Side was the hub for pickles, Jewish deli, cheap clothes and poor immigrants. It’s Long been gentrified and the pace of building is astounding. The most interesting and least known streets are the most Eastern ones ( we are talking almost at the Williamsburg bridge) A couple of hours on Norfolk Street (between Delancey and Rivington)

LA CONTENTA: lacontentanyc.com. Great Mexican in this tiny outpost. like most of the area, a daily Happy Hour for reduced priced food and drinks draws many between 4 and 7pm

THE BACKROOM(SPEAKEASY): backroomnyc.com. Dark and moody – good for snuggling – with a truly precarious entrance leading to 1930’s prohibition themed spot. All cocktails served in tea cups.

NURSE BETTIE: http://nursebettie.com. Go for happy hour, Stay for the free Burlesque shows.
