The Street Where I Live

British by birth, New Yorker by nature.

Happy Friday and hurrah for the weekend!  Firstly, I do realize that I failed spectacularly in showing you any of the promised photos from our Superbowl party last weekend, apologies one and all. I'm afraid I was simply having too much fun- on account of the fact that I make excellent Margaritas, a double-edged sword of a talent that is sadly my cross to bear (behold, my one piece of evidence, which involves me teaching my friend Ethan my signature dance move "the cucumber sandwich"). Anyway, the more Instagram evidence of the party, the crappier the party, right? This weekend is set to be FREEZING in NYC, so I'll be meeting up with friends in cozy places, and hugging my sister-in-law, who's in town for fashion week. As mentioned, the gallery also has an opening on Sunday night, so stop by if you're in downtown NYC! Until Monday, sweet friends. My usual round up below.

Guys, I've had a little clear out and am selling some designer stuff from my wardrobe, including the Lanvin silk dress you see above, at shut the front door prices over on the Instagram account tswil_wardrobe. Silk scarves, vintage gowns and rad tribal crop tops all included. First person to comment gets it. International shipping totally cool with me.
