Bella and Brooklyn

Bella and me at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference last September. Photo by Elissa Stern of Dress With Courage.

I’m over at the Citizen Rosebud today, doing a guest post for my friend Bella, whom I adore. The topic is place but I couldn’t help writing about Bella because it was such a treat to meet her in person last September at the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference in Manhattan. I hope she comes back to Brooklyn soon.

For the post I shot some pictures of my favorite walk in my neighborhood, from Prospect Park West to Grand Army Plaza. I never get tired of seeing the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Arch, honoring those who fought for the Union during the Civil War. I think of it as Brooklyn’s Arc de Triomphe.

Do head over to the Citizen Rosebud for more photographs!

Just stopped by your beautiful guest post, and I loved all of it! Couldn't agree with you more about the sheer splendidness of Bella, too. What an inspiring lady!
