My Go-To Gilbert

Last week I remembered to ask my new video intern, Adrian, to take a few shots of me in Herald Square. Us social media people are always in need of new profile pics, etc., and it's a rare day I've got a photographer hanging out with me in Herald Square.

Top from Gap Herald Square (no longer available), pants from Zara 34th Street (other colors still available), sunglasses from Billabong Herald Square (still available).

I'm not crazy about the shoes with the whole look, but this was impromptu and these shoes sit under my desk all summer long. They are Payless (Lower East Side) from almost five years ago, and they are my daily comfortable work wedge. Seriously, I can walk all day through the district in these. And it's a good thing I'm wearing a wedge because I am standing on a subway grate. Herald Square is all subway grate in the middle.

Also if you're thinking hey, your hair actually looks coiffed today, like maybe you didn't have to spend fifteen minutes photoshopping flyaways, this is because I had just visited Gilbert up the block at Jean Pierre Salon (36th & Sixth). Gilbert is not my regular stylist (I've been seeing her for almost twelve years) but he is my fail-safe, go-to guy for bang trims, blow-outs, and last-minute color. I keep a box of John Frieda foam at home, but last week I really needed some chair time. Gilbert is wonderful, and you can find him at Jean Pierre Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
