White after Labour Day?

When it comes to fashion, I make my own rules. I love all white any time of the year.

These photos taken before Labour Day in Bryant Park (NYC). It looks like I’m wearing a dress but it’s actually a long blouse to wear over pants or leggings. There are no buttons from the waist down.

Walking over to Midtown, Times Square is the famous site of the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop. It’s an electric feeling surrounded by huge LED billboards and towering buildings, you realize you’re in the most visited place in the world! Take a look at my video to get a feel of it.

Time for some more window shopping.

Browsing through Marimekko, I bought some fabric. The same print of a dress I had in the 1960’s. It’s from Finland and this print is still being made.


Ok, how do we get to the Flatiron Building? This 22-story triangular skyscraper is over a hundred years old and has become an icon of NYC. One of the tallest buildings in its day. Nowadays, skyscrapers are more than 40 stories.

Everywhere I go I’m experiencing deja vu, like I’ve been here before.

    Beautiful dress, I love the delicacy and softness of the fabric. I love the shirt design and the gorgeous sleeves. It looks perfect with all three looks, all white, black capris and jeans. I am fan of your looks all white, you already know, but I also love your capris and also you look wonderful in jeans, it is difficult to choose one proposal over another. I love your red sandals, they are pure aesthetic strength and they give joy to the outfit in all cases. Perfect your precious bag of daisies, so yours. Beautiful all your delicate poses in the photos, you are pure harmony and beauty. I would be a bit scared with the bird on my shoulder … though he sure as hell got caught up in your beauty.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! This shirt-dress is super soft and flowy. I like the little ruffles too. Because it’s white I can wear it with almost any pants, capris or leggings. The parrot is very gentle but she loves jewellery and I was warned that she might break my necklace, so I did not let her sit on my shoulder too long. 🙂

      ❤ carmen
