About the blog:


The Lady D Chronicles is a food and fashion, illustration and design, lifestyle and libations website and fanzine.

I seek out adventures (and cocktails), expose new trends and check up on old ones. 



Why you should care:

- I am bored of reading the same blogs that are just a bunch of pretty pictures. Sure I've got pretty pictures, but lets dive a little deeper!
- I love fashion, but high fashion mags kinda piss me off. All the ads, fantasy clothes and stick figure girls give me a headache.
- I like to cook super healthy food…yet most of my food posts are about booze and sweet treats.
- My passion is for illustration and while I wish I could illustrate the world (and every part of the website), with a full time job I just run out of time.
- I live in NYC (Brownstone Brooklyn) and its not as indie and glamorous as everyone makes it out to be
- I'm a real girl on a real budget. I buy a lot of cheap junk, vintage and yearn for the goodwill days of times past.
- I find it inspiring to watch old sixties movies in bed on weeknights, drinking Manhattans. (You should try it…trust me on this one)
- I like dive bars, taco stands and underground shows on Wednesday nights, you don't have to deal with amateur hour.
- I like putting time and effort into my website, cause it reminds me of the zine I wrote in high school. So lets just call this an online zine.
