WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

James Andrew - Grit meets Glam

There is nothing that I enjoy more than a little Saturday or Sunday afternoon expedition, meeting friends for a gorgeous lunch and then hitting the stores and boutiques for a few fabtastic treats to bring home. I found myself in Manhattan’s historic Meatpacking District this weekend doing just that. Having been considered a generally questionable part of town for the past several decades, this area has undergone a substantial transformation, and is now considered quite chic. Home to Highline park, Christian Louboutin, Alexander McQueen, 10,000 Things Jewelry, and Hudson Furniture to name just a few of my favorite destinations, the Meatpacking District is sure to delight!

I stopped to have my photo taken in front of one of the few remaining examples of graffiti that was once quite typical of this area – I’m wearing a red leather biker jacket and wool mini hounds tooth pant both by Gucci, a cerulean blue cashmere turtleneck sweater by Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin teal suede sneakers, black leather tote by Gucci and glasses by Dior my fragrance is Royal Water by Creed.

    I’m sad to hear that Rupert has moved on. I know you miss him, but it sounds like he was surrounded by love and beauty during his transition. He’ll be a good watchdog from heaven.
