The allure of Coney Island has always been a hotspot of entertainment from the early century to the latter day with a particular popular time in the 40’s, 50’s or 60’s. There is the yearly Miss Coney Island parade, the infamous hotdog eating competition and it is listed as The National Register of Historic Places.

I had a delicious time on the beach wearing my Fifi Chachnil pink play suit with matching bra as well as wandering along the promenade with some Nathan’s fries (bad puppy I know!) It was a beautiful sunny day so I had difficulties keeping my eyes open in the glare of the sun but I can’t complain as it was so beautiful!

I also love the way Coney Island has a goldenesque magic to it with its bright rides and streaming banners but you also get the feeling that she knows a faded secret or too- and behind the glitter and glamour there is something far more deeper than we will ever know…

I had an absolute blast this week at The Chelsea Hotel in New York with my darling girlfriends and the help of designer Fifi Chachnil. I have watched so many documentaries on the infamous hotel so was excited to have my own Chelsea experience and feel the electricity stirring through the corridors! Many a writer, artist, musician, model, photographer and actor have stayed or lived at the 23rd Street residence including Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Dylan Thomas and Edie Sedgewick.

I got to meet and document the wonderful photographer Tony Notarberadino who has been shooting his surroundings for the last twenty two years (more on that soon!) We were quite naughty girls and even had our own rendezvous on the roof! I also found out the many changes The Chelsea is currently going through, bitter sweet but still beautiful in every way…
