I was browsing my pictures from New York in February and I found this shot taken in Madison Avenue. It was a freezing morning in Upper East Side and we were on the way to the favourite local cafe for breakfast. I don’t have to tell you it was really hard to take an outfit photos when the termomether shows no more than minus 15 Degrees. This is the only shot we took, but I still like it, shows that New York vibe. I was wearing Balenciaga boots, COS coat and a lace skirt.
Other thing I want to tell you. I’ve just started my own ask.fm/alice_zielasko HERE. From now you can ask me a question. I’ll do my best to answer it.
My last week’s trip to New York was short but absolutely amazing. I was invited there by Virgin Holidays to spend a few nights in The Surrey hotel located on the Upper East Side, which, in my opinion, is the most beautiful area of Manhattan. The view from my room, located on the 17th floor, was faboulous, especially early in the morning when I could watch sunrise over New York skyscrapers. The one possitive thing about jetlag is that you can’t sleep at 4 am, so you can see how a big city is waking up for a busy day. A view to remember!
The Surrey Hotel was located between Central Park and Madison Avenue. There were so many cool boutiques and restaurants around and great spots for taking photos. Unfortunatelly a freezing cold temperature didn’t allow me to take more shots outside. A friendly stuff in the hotel took care of us perfectly, so we were enjoying our time in a hotel between the shows. And I have to mention about the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten. It was a brioche french toast with maple syrop, orange butter and apple pear served in the hotel cafe. I wish I could prepare it by myslef at home.
As you could see on my Instagram I went to New York for fashion week, for AllSaints A/W 14 presentation to be exact . I loved every single piece from the new collection: sherling coats and jackets, oversized blazers, to leather accessories: backpacks, bags and shoes. Everything looked very wearable, simple but with that ‘all saints’ rocky touch to it. Black is the colour I could wear most of the time, and that’s why I chose for that day an all black total look. A high, wide waist belt and pierced boots, both from AllSaints S/S14 collection made it. You can already find them in the stores.
We took a few outfit shots outside of the presentation in the Meatpacking District. It was minus 15 degrees and it was freeeezing cold. I wanted to show you the belt, so I took off a coat for two minutes to shoot.
