I was walking around my Mecca of fashion Tuesday, a place called Soho in New York. Soho stands for south of Houston Street and it is a perfect place to people watch, catch new fashions and enjoy great food! When I started walking I was feeling good wearing my plaid H&M cropped wool coat, a black INC off the shoulder tunic with skinny jeans and my black Born boots. My accessories were simple, a black Chanel bag and gold rosette chandelier ear rings. It sounds like a lot of black and that is what people think you wear in New York, all black, but truthfully it was the only thing I could pull together. My other clothing I had with me was from a Costa Rican wedding I attended a few days before and clearly my cotton skirt was not going to fly for this time of year. l black, but truthfully it was the only thing I could pull together.

After about 10 hours of trolling around Soho, Greenwich, and Chelsea my feet were killing me (in three-inch heels) – it was a little ridiculous. So in my agony I was looking around wondering if anyone else was feeling like me? No, no they were not because everyone was wearing flats! There were converse sneakers, moccasins, Doc Martens and knee-high boots. Realizing that nothing would save me now but a foot message or pedicure and, being that every shop was closed, my boyfriend just heard me whine the whole way home. A lesson learned: It is not always about style; comfort should play a huge part in your wardrobe. So be sure when dressing for here or anywhere, let yourself be realistic and dress what makes you feel and look good.
