I have many photos & stories to share from last week, and I am thrilled to be sharing THESE SPARKLY SLIDES today. The team at SPRING sent me these from their PRIDE IS LOVE COLLECTION to wear during this past Sunday’s festivities. I am extra excited to promote THIS COLLECTION, as it is making an impact on my community right here in New York City. If you purchase any item from THIS COLLECTION through 6/30, SPRING will donate 20% of all sales to support the LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER, which provides necessary & vital programs, resources, & services to support our ever-evolving LGBT community.
Once they arrived in the mail, I knew we had to shoot them at the rainbow intersection near STONEWALL. This is the second year in a row the Department of Transportation has created a colorful crosswalk. To say there were a hit at the Pride Parade would be an understatement. I already love the rainbow colors, but the sparkles take it up a notch. In addition to MY SLIDES, these are the other rainbow items from the PRIDE IS LOVE COLLECTION that are in my shopping cart: THIS ZAC POSEN PURSE, THIS GUCCI HEADBAND, THIS ECO PRIDE THROW, THIS PAIR OF LOEFFLER RANDALL SNEAKERS, & THIS SOLID & STRIPED SWIMSUIT. I already own this SUNNYLIFE RAINBOW REUSABLE CUP, which was on MY CHRISTMAS LIST this past year!
Living around the corner from Stonewall is one of my top sources of Pride in New York. LEWIS MILLER DESIGN partnered with EQUINOX this week to bring a “Flower Flash” to this hallowed LGBTQ+ landmark. Another reason I wanted to shoot here? For every photo snapped at one of these queer spaces covered in flowers & shared with #POWEREDBYPRIDE, EQUINOX will also donate $1 to the LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER. Help this important resource center by both sharing your photos & SHOPPING ON SPRING. I will be wearing my RAINBOW ALDO SLIDES to a special event later this week; stay tuned! Thank you again to the SPRING team for supporting the LGBTQ+ community with their PRIDE IS LOVE COLLECTION.
