Featured: Tough Love

(Written by Jeanne Grey) Cityslickin’ in the wildest of cities ain’t easy when your day is filled with meetings, phone calls, Skype sessions, photoshoots alongside curating instagram posts for all these activities a.k.a the fun part of what I do!  Go to’s like Marc Jacob’s new beauty line a.k.a my fairy godmother keeps my face together as I leave the rest in caffeine’s hands.

Some days the city holds your hand. Some days, it leaves you to fend for yourself. I’d like to think that perhaps the West would treat me better. That its waves, sun and warmth would take better care of me after New York leaves me battered and bruised. But tough women like us know that there’s nothing like a classic white tee-denim look topped off with a red lip to fiercely fight through these bruises.

Thoughts like these then get interrupted when I catch accidental glimpses of Times Square at its busiest, Soho at its chicest with Marant and Gucci sashaying next to one another down the cobble stoned alleys of Soho, and feel the vibrations of the city being so alive through everyone’s energy surrounding her. The West though calm will never be New York. It won’t know the true hustle that Manhattan vibrates in its people. Though at times she hits you and beats you down, New York City always comes back and says I love you at the end of the day, leaving you tougher than you were before you met her.

No other city will love you the way she will. And you won’t find me city slickin’ and hustlin’ in Street People Atelier’s apparel in any other city than the one that raised me.
