the rest of the gershwin

We really couldn't get enough of this place, so we took a whole bunch of pictures! Here are some more of the inside of the room.

The lobby, with the huge horn that runs through the middle of it.

And the outside, with lots of horns! You definitely can't miss this place, especially not at night!

Weekend in NYC - the gershwin

The other weekend Ethan and I went NYC for our friend's 30th birthday party. Being frugal grad students, we stayed at the cheapest hotel we could find within a reasonable distance of her place. Usually staying in really cheap places makes me quite nervous (this one was even less than the YMCA), so i wasn't quite sure what to expect. but, the worrying was for nothing, cause when we got there, it turned out the hotel was amazing!! Its an old building that had previously been apartments and all of the rooms had hardwood floors and really old radiators. the new owners converted it into an art-themed hotel with these crazy horns on the front of the building and through the lobby. Our room was simple but very stylish and just felt very new york! Here are the first of a series pictures we took... i'll put up the others over the next couple days. In these photos, i'm wearing a vintage 40's dress and shoes and several pairs of tights from the typical places. my headband is from forever21.

I want to introduce you to someone new... she arrived for me on christmas, under a very huge blanket, and I couldn't be more happy with her! Ethan found her for me somewhere out in rural PA and managed to bring her all the way to christmas with my parents. We will all be seeing much more of her as soon as i set her up, because she is going to help out with the photos for Stellate Vintage.
