In true wide-eyed, twenty-something girl meets big city fashion (a la musical theatre ingenue archetypes Millie Dillmount and Peggy Sawyer), I have arrived in my new neighborhood on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, armed with nothing but a Florida driver’s license, my 305 area code, far too many clothes, shoes, accessories, books, cosmetics, furniture, decorations (you get the picture) for my closet of a room’s closet, and big dreams for the future. The promise of adventure and the unparalleled energy that this “island of joy” exudes, makes my limited square footage with a Barney’s private collection price tag seem like a bargain on par with the Louisiana Purchase (plus utilities). I plan on chronicling my most notable and entertaining adventures, challenges, and neighborhood explorations/discoveries. So please duck the turnstile and join me on the 6 train toward Pelham Bay commute into my world. Stay tuned for more posts.
