When I heard the slight echo of strings from the subway platform, I was certain that I my morning commute would be serenaded the sounds of either Beethoven, Bach, or whoever.
When I reached the top of the stairs and laid eyes upon the musicians, somehow their music became much sweeter.
The West Village Quartet had not only captivated my attention; entire L.I.R.R waiting area were captivated with admiration.
That’s the way to start the morning commute!

Le Look Du Jour: Miss Winfrey for Harper’s Bazaar by Terry Richardson.
I believe fashion rules were made to be broken. Fashion is all about self-expression and experimentation in my book. However, I do have a few self-imposed fashion rules and one of them is “SUITS SUCK.”
I define the suit “as a corporate slave outfit designed to suck the soul out of the person wearing them.” However, I think I’m going to have to make an exception to my NO SUITS rule, because Auntie O is rocking this sleek suit to infinity.

Happy Columbus Day???
Just in case you’re still clinging to the lies your teacher told you in 3rd grade, Christopher Columbus, (whose real name is Cristobol Colon) didn’t discover America in 1492. Indigenous people and Africans were already living in the western hemisphere, thousands of years before his expedition.
However, we can credit Columbus with enslavement, rape, and the liquidation cultures.
