An Advanced Style Summer Luncheon

A Delightful Lunch at Epistrophy
Today we had the most delightful time meeting up with old friends from Ari Seth Cohen's Advanced Style blog. Lunch was at Epistrophy, an arty cafe on Mott Street in the NoLita section of New York. In attendance were Ari, Richard and me, Debra Rapoport and Joyce Carpati.

A charming outdoor table
I had never been to this cafe, which reminded me of the Pink Pony, an artist and writer hangout out on Ludlow Street. Sadly, the Pink Pony just closed, a victim of rising rents in the neighborhood.

 Ari recently did a shoot for the July issue of 
Vogue Australia.
Joyce was one of the featured models.
She looked elegant and stunning,
comme d'habitude, in an Armani outfit.

Charming details in the cafe

 that she makes.

Eccentric decor enhances the charming vibe.
