The Preservationist

This is Mel Adelglass. He is a photographer and also a preserver of valuable things.

I met him walking down the street. At the time he was saving a reel-to-reel from destruction.

Melvin is a New Yorker. The Volvo behind him is also his. He said, to me "who has a car form 1984 any more?"

Blizzard 2010

Since I haven't been able to get out of my place (a cause de la neige!) to snap up Style File pix, today is a self post with my fave dress. This is what I do when I'm cooped up in my home by a blizzard ;)

Three the Subway.


turtleneck, cap and jacket (casually tied) with tiger broach detail

Man's: Tuque, quilted coat, and sneakers

Boots, socks and tights.This is for Bianca! I think the hobo/dress-up combo is excellent...especially with the slightly worn-out boots.

Bag from H&M, Spain. Boots from who-knows-where but they're wonderful.

Shirt buttoned to the top but without a tie gets top billing...especially given the print, layering, and texture variation in the ensemble.
