It's raining today, perfect for staying in to watch my netflix documentary of the famous photographer, Bill Cunningham. Starting his career in the swinging 60's with a $30 camera, his keen eye for style took to documenting the fashions of NYC's most interesting venue: the streets. Sporting his trademark blue windbreaker, this 81-year-old photographer can still be seen peddling through SoHo on his classic Schwinn. A worn camera will be around his neck as he documents the lives of New York's most creatively dressed citizens. If you head to Central Park over the weekend, wear something nice, darling. Bill will be there snapping pictures for next week's edition of, "On the Street with Bill Cunningham" featured in The New York Times style section. I am infatuated with his charming video log for spring! Color, texture and fashion inspiration is blooming across the country, you only have to slow down to see it. Watch and be inspired.
Much Love, Laura

Side notes... I adore a well made trench! Always on the hunt for the perfect warm khaki edition with the most precise detailing. Of course, I have a thing for a classic Burberry but my wallet doesn't. Your suggestions are always welcome!
