While I was in NYC last month, I went to see this amazing documentary on photographer, Clayton Patterson. It is a realist glimpse at the not so glamorous life of the LES in the 1970's-2000, pre steve madden and hipster bars amuk.
If you have a chance to see this, it sheds a lot of light on the Tompkins Square riots and sheds light on the real neighborhood and what happened to people during the quick changes in the demographic, from building and gentrification.
There is a show of Clayton's Photos running through Nov 8 @:
157 RIVINGTON STREET
NEW YORK NY 10002
T. 212 253 2780
Mon – Sun 12noon – 7pm

I spent the evening yesterday with jewelry designer Victoria Kray. We used her gorgeous crystal pieces in the shoot I styled for SugarHighLoveStoned last month on Oahu.
I love the detail of these gorgeous crystals hung in chains and rope, and the delicate nature of her line. The crystals speak to your heart and find their way to their rightful owner.
Next up are metal rings, bangles, and pendants, stamped with affirmations of love and light, along with choice song lyrics and quotes. She will offer custom one of a kinds with your words of choice. Highly recommened. This isnt just a pretty necklace, it is love.
More to come....
