There's nothing like delving toe-first into a bit of exploratory Manhattan apartment hunting to convince yourself to stay just where you are for the next, oh, 17 years. The end of my lease is coming up in a couple of months so I thought I'd see what was out there--I needed more space, another closet, perhaps a proper bedroom, et al. Right. After traipsing around in the cold looking at a handful of inadequate apartments with a confused, inept broker this morning, my little downtown home looks absolutely perfect. And that's that.
On a brighter note, it's warm and sunny today! I can feel the winter thaw happening right under my feet, and it's putting the biggest smile on my face. It's only a (short) matter of time before we're all hitting the streets jacket-less, pants-less (with shorts on, of course), and exponentially happier for it.
But for now, I guess I better keep my pants on for at least a few more weeks. I'm wearing a Jen Kao tank, Lia Kes silk pants, Brian Atwood shoes, and a Smythson travel envelope I've decided to use as a clutch. All pictures by Mark Iantosca.
