I took this about 5 seconds before a giant rain storm hit and I found myself running down the street jumping over puddles in my leopard heels! This sea of painted metal railings is outside of my place in Manhattan. The rain lasted only through the evening and it's been sunny ever since, a welcome change from Seattles endless wetness. 
I've been getting by doing mending, tailoring, and alterations on the side and am moving into the wide world of styling. I am also beginning to get organized and start up my own sewing and design projects again. Moving takes up so much time but I'm so glad to be here.

  3. OK Stella, I've always wanted to know this.. How do you take your pics, you take them yourself? Set the camera on timer or you always have the same friend take them for you? Just always wondered that.

    This picture is very fun, shows the city girl you are.

  4. The beauty about New York is... The rain doesn't last long and the sun always comes back out!
