Thank You Bill Cunningham!

After writing about some of the fabulous gifts that my thoughtful friend, Adina, had given me (these Kate Spade books and this amazing perfume),
I was starting to get a bit of a complex...

was she always giving me the best gifts? 

Surely, I must have reciprocated, right?

And, then this past weekend, Bill Cunningham,
of the New York Times Style Section,
stepped in and made my day!

He did a photo spread about the beautiful scarves
women in New York City are wearing.
And he photographed my friend, Adina,
 wearing this gorgeous Missoni scarf
that I, gave her, for her Birthday, two years ago!
How chic does she look!?
She had no idea her picture was taken
until she opened the paper Sunday morning!

I honestly don't know who was more or her!


So, thank you Mr. Cunningham.  
We love your street style photos!
And, I miss New York City...sigh...

{now I can post all the other lovely gifts she has given me...guilt free}
