Metropolitan Opera House

Here are just some photos I took whilst visiting the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center.
 I chose not post a front headshot of the opera house because it does not give the enormity of this building justice. From the side, you realize how tall this building really is compared that man next to the tree. You have to go there yourself to experience the initial awe in the architecture of this magnificent building.
 If you look closely at the top, what do you see?! A creepy woman looking down at you! At first, I thought it was a ghost or a reflection of myself. As I stared at it, I realized it most definitely does not resemble me. So then I looked at the other photos I took, and she was still there!! I was trippin'. 
...But then I realized... the Metropolitan Opera House has a giant sheer billboard hanging from it's windows with a creepy woman's face on it... LOL
I watched a rehearsal of Rigoletto and inside the opera house, there were giant (and small) beautiful starburst chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

Black on Black

Black is and always be trendy. However, recently, from catwalks to street fashion, I have seen countless fashionable women and men dress in all black. It is safe to say black is back. I wear black year round, but there is no better season to deck out in all black than in Autumn/Winter. 
The Phillip Lim x Target collaboration was probably the most anticipated fashion collaboration of the year. I was lucky enough to get my hands on of the cutest handbags. Although the quality is not as great as I would expect from Phillip Lim, I love the gold hardware on the bag. 
To give any black outfit more depth and dimension, add gold accessories or incorporate gold accents into each piece. When paired with black, gold adds a royal feel to your outfit. You can also play with textures. Mix and match leather, faux leather, wool, cotton, nylon, etc.
My friend Janet and I went to the Met and Central Park. It was a beautiful day. I feel like I say that every time (that it's a beautiful day), but its true! I guess I only shoot on days when its nice out haha.

Beach in the Autumn

I took a weekend trip out to Eastern Long Island and visited the beach. It was a perfect crisp autumn day and I had so much fun in an adventure-packed day. 
Beaches on the north shore of Long Island typically are less sandy and more rocky.
My childhood friend! :)
Doing the titanic (or Cristo Redento)
By the way, did you notice my hair? 
I put it in a ponytail and my brother cut it off! I donated it to Locks of Love. I love short hair, its easier to manage, has more volume and still hides my surgery scars. If you see me in person, one side of my hair is longer than the other haha. That's what happens when you let your brother cut your hair. I don't mind though, it's just hair. :)
