downtown photo diaries

Over labor day there was a little bit of this.

Israel and I enjoying a glass of champs.

The saving grace of the spectacular view of downtown from the Standard hotel.

Well, well....laborous weekend indeed (but not really). Took a step out on Sunday to go check out my favorite musical selecter of all time, Harvey, at the Standard hotel in downtown. I loathe that place only because their sound system is more like listening to music from speakers coming out of your car radio, (sucks balls) and usually the scene..is well...er..uh...sceney. But you can't beat the spectacular view of the engulfing skyscrapers, which to me never gets old, while you dance with the sun and pop continual bottles of Chandon champagne. Hard life. I was a little worried about the motorcycle ride there, because my outfit was a bit ridiculous on a bike wearing 6 inch heels and all, but the entrance to the hotel made for an editorial one. What I thought was just a simple bat wing top from Saint Grace, actually made for a dramatic effect half tucked into my bottom bathing suit. Who woulda thunk? I felt like a gypsy quasi hooker, but I got a ton of compliments about the outfit, so I decided to post these pictures even though the quality might not be up to par.

Oh yes, for those of you who don't know...I do spend a lot more time with my music blog. Go and check it out, there are tons of FREE downloadable goodness for you to not check out. I'm putting out mixtape #10 as we type. It is my ode to summer, which to me was one of the best ones I've had in a long while.
