Late Afternoon Raya

Hello Darlings,

Today I bring you the gorgeous Raya Njeim. Raya is a super busy manager of international music artists, from NYC to Paris to Beirut. She took some time out to model this gorgeous couture wedding dress for me on the streets of Bushwick. I also asked her a few questions about her favourite places in the neighbourhood, so you get a little fashion and some Bushwick tips too. I'm like a one-woman Time Out here kids.

RD: So darling, tell more your favourite place to grab a cocktail?

RN: Syndicated

RD: Dollar Oysters?

RN: I'm vegan

RD: Oops. Duh.

RD: Coffee?

RN: Little Skips 

RD: Yes! I love that place. 

RD: Vintage?

RN:  Friends on Bogart Street.

RD: That place is cool. I recently bought a 'get well' card there which featured cats sitting in a bowl of cereal with laser beams shooting out of their eyes. Just sayin.

RD: Pizza?

RN: Roberta's obviously

RD: Well I know you don't eat burgers so maybe you could tell us a good little pick-up spot?

RN: Mr Kiwi's organic grocery store - to go back home and cook ;)

Thank you Raya - you look beautiful!

More soon Darlings,

Love,

Ruthie Darling xoxo

Heading For A Wedding #jk

Hey Fashion Darlings,

It's hotter than hell outside, so I am writing this sitting face first into the AC unit in a swimsuit #classssaaay

This week I am showcasing a vintage wedding dress worn in three different styles. I mean hey, if you are going to spend a month's rent on a dress, you may as well get some use out of it.

P.S Shoutout to the bride of the moment: Miss Gemma Glynn, whose glamourous Gatsby-esque wedding will, I'm sure, be gracing the pages of this blog very soon. 

Love and sweaty kisses,

Ruthie Darling xoxo

#1 Wear with Louboutins. Nuff said.

#2 For a more daytime feel, throw over a little plaid shirt (especially if you're heading for a friend's performance art gig in Bushwick) and add a pop of colour with a vintage scarf worn around the head.

#3 For a little evening glamour, throw over a beaded jacket and add some vampy lipstick.

Dress: Vintage
