Dear beloved readers, meet my trusty portfolio! Yet another serendipitous vintage find I lucked upon after brunch one wintry morning at the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. (This, of course, took place when I was still on the East Coast.) There was such a neverending supply of goodies and distractions that I was surprised I even managed to spot this well-kept portfolio. The best part? I didn't even have to negotiate as it was reasonably priced at $20.

Since that fateful day, it has never left my side. I bring it to interviews, editorial photoshoots and whenever I feel like it adds to my day-to-day outfits. Stylish, functional and timeless, my portfolio never fails to elicit a complimentary reaction.

While I absolutely love and adore it, I can't help but wonder -- who or what does M.R. stand for? A special shout-out to the person who satiates my curiosity in the next entry!
