Advanced Style at Levain Bakery

I was walking past Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side when I saw this gorgeous woman sitting on the bench outside. She was born in Argentina, but has been in New York most of her adult life. Being a long time resident of the UWS I asked her if the bakery was any good. She told me that she had never been there, but that she was using the laundromat next store. I picked up a cookie for us to share and then wished her a beautiful afternoon.

  • You have a magic eye and can spot true beauty like noone.
    Love and admiration always.

  • How LOVELY! I LOVE that she's dressed up in red to go to the laundromat. She is too cute!

    I love how she's dressed up to go out, even if it is only to do laundry, and how she's tucked her scarf under the tie on her blouse, such attention to detail!

  • Did I tell you today, how much I love your blog? Yep, I do. Simple wonderful article!

  • I love these photos. She has such a nobility to her carriage. And red certainly becomes her!
