When my friend Karin recently came back from New York* she told me how incredibly groomed and stylish New Yorkers are. Everyone! she says. Well, I can tell you, the same does not apply to Berlin. Which is partly why I like this city. It's liberating. No pressure. You can wear the same old pair of jeans for weeks… It's fiiine. But sometimes I sit in the tube wondering if maybe, in a few years time I will have stopped wearing make-up for good, and ONLY wear flats (so much more comfortable) and also will have given up on the bra (style naturelle, why not?!)… But only until I end up in places like Villa Harteneck, an interior design nirvana where no lamp goes below a few thousand quid (and probably none of the ladies' faces strolling around either…). The place smells like heaven (aka Diptyque candles) and everything is just biuuutiful. Ah well, never underestimate the power of being put well together... ♥ ♥ ♥
*She went and left before Sandy, and absolutely loved the city. I haven't been in a while, but NY holds a big place in my heart and I so hope New York(ers) can recover from the storm quickly.
