Hello gorgeous readers! Welcome to the blog. I'm Maria and I run the show here. New York City is life. New York City is home. My New York City is Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks coffee, graffittied walls, noisy subways, slow taxi-cabs and quiet museums. A born and raised Italian Brooklyn girl --original sans hipster-- who loves fashion and beauty. Don't let the pretty make-up fool you though, my interests far exceeds the frivolous. I have a passion for all things philosophical, cultural and spiritual. I'm just an intergalactic alien traveling the universe waiting around for the mother-ship to pick me up --making mental notes of everything that ignites my soul. Some info about me: I have an Associates degree in fashion marketing, merchandising and management with a background in public relations and visual display. I've studied costume, art history and have worked as a freelance stylist with opportunities to work behind the scenes at fashion shows. Two of my greatest moments would have to be participating at a Giorgio Armani show --he might not remember me but I'll never forget the moment-- and having the pleasure of meeting --and shaking hands with-- another icon, Oscar De La Renta, while working a retail internship. Some of my hobbies are reading --I'm a serious book addict w/hundreds in my collection and an entire section dedicated to astrology. I can't live without science fiction, classic films and music. I'm also a foodie blogger and recently started a small creative business that's about to launch. I've also started writing again, finished a few short stories with a writing blog in the wings waiting to be published. The new year has started out as one of great personal change for me that has led me to realize all the things that seemed impossible might actually be possible. Baby steps...

QUIRKS: collecting chopsticks, eating inordinate amounts of olives and pistachios and the compulsion to buy music CD's in physical disc form versus downloads. 

CONFASHION:during musings of my youth, I had an a epiphany to dress myself in nothing but red. Red draws attention. With acquired experience or an inner wisdom prevailing, I soon realized an even greater power in going about unseen in silence...
