A Look at The Look Book
Yes, yes, I am obsessed with Amy Larocca's weekly New York

ELISA: Right now I am living life. Because I can. I’m living, and I’m enjoying. I collect art, I collect fashion. I can’t lie to you, I love it. At some point you follow a type of life with a schedule, and I kind of said, “You know what? I’m going to take a hike for a while.”
That's right! Take a hike, lady! Do it in your riding boots and gray skinny jeans. While you're at it, get yourself a TV show or go become Paris's new BFF
. She would heart you!
