I get my haircut on the Upper East Side, which is pretty much the only reason why I go that far uptown (besides a Central Park escapade every once in a while). Despite the distance from where I live in Brooklyn, I find it charming, peaceful and, at times, inspirational. Quite notorious for being slightly high-brow — especially around Madison Avenue (even the pigeons & shearling vest-wearing French bull dogs look down on you) — it harnesses that “old money” feel and quintessential New York-ness filled with brownstones and the kind of window shopping that encases beautiful displays that basically gave window shopping its oomph. So the other day, I took a moment to wander the 60s and rake in the inspo in what wouldn’t be a terribly traditional UES outfit, but hey, this is me and this is 2018.
