Edit: Please take a second to vote for one of my readers - she is currently trying to get funding to buy French books for her class. My teachers made a huge impact on my life, so teachers always have a place in my heart! The fact that she's doing this on her own time is really special to me. You can vote once per day and you don't have to sign up! Just type in Meadowlands, select the listed school and you're done. Vote for Meadowlands!

Please don't judge my wrinkled blouse! It's a loose fitting top and I stuffed it into a fitted, heavy jacket all day. I'll have to show you another time when I'm not being a sloppy mess, because it's a soft, comfy wonder of a blouse. As for the vintage shorts, they're wool and I have a slight allergy to wool...so I can only take these out when I'm fully protected by tights.
Kim and I started out our day at the Lexington Equinox location, where we went to show our love for Greta, the brilliant force behind Fashion Me Green. Greta was hosting the launch of the sleek Derringer pedal bike, which is limited edition and has a pretty hefty price tag ($2300) to match the exclusivity. Well, this is coming from someone who picked her bike according to how well it matched Miku's personality, so I'm not the person to consult about cycling.
Afterward, Kim and I bought way too much candy at the adjacent Dylan's Candy Bar, went shopping for lots of socks because it's freaking cold, and ate the most amazing brunch in history of brunch, at NoHo Star.
Eggs benedict on french toast, with apples and maple syrup! Favorite. I never know if I'll get yelled at for taking out my bulky SLR at a restaurant, so I took this ninja-style with my slick HTC Aria, which HTC sent to me because they probably felt bad that I used my mom's hand-me-down phone circa 2004. Hand-me-down vintage coat, good. Hand-me-down brick phone, bad. Now I'm all growed up and can take pictures and tweet on my phone.
p.s. If you aren't familiar with Greta and her eco-friendly, fashion forward movement, please reconcile that immediately. I adore her and everything she is doing. See the green makeovers she has given to some well known style influencers at Fashion Me Green. Also, please vote for her to become Sunglass Hut's full time fabulous blogger here!
