The story in pictures


1. Historic Hamilton Heights Limestone. Some neighborhoods are grand in architecture and scale. This is one of them.
2. Grace closes up as we walk down the block for a cup of Korean Ginger Tea.
3. Madame Grace Poon herself. (Love the glasses!)
4. Original decorative historical light post.
5. Can't tell you what she just said.

Why I love her
Always on the same page. Always having fun.

So the story goes...


Conversing With: Los Angeles Born Photographer & Stylist, Grace Poon
Years Acquainted: 11
Parked In: Hamilton Heights, Harlem - NYC
Her Next Move: Tokyo, Japan - Spring



Conversation On Leather Shorts & A Yellow Polka Dot Blouse

Sana : I googled you this morning and saw you on a couple of photographers websites. I need to know where you were headed when Facehunter stopped you. Dressed like that!

Grace : It was Fashion Week and I was actually going to my friends house with the intention of going out later. We ended up watching a short film that was so provoking, I was in my head about it and I didn't want to go out anymore so I stayed over and wore the same thing to Telfar's show the next day.

Sana:  Well you looked *hot!

Grace: Thank you. I didn't know who he was at the time and I mentioned him to my friend. She said "Girl, you better take the picture." So I did. (laughs)

Her glasses are so cute! I almost went for clear plastic frames when buying my latest pair.... but chickened out for fear of comparisons to my science-goggle-ridden high school GEEK days. She makes them look FAB! :)

Sana said...

@Niki She rocks them but I can still see you in a clear rosy pair! I'll try to find a pair I've seen in the past and send them your way!
