Nicole in the East Village

This is Nicole. She is a lifestyle photographer and owner of Preservation, an exquisitely curated vintage and modern lifestyle shop in the East Village. Nicole just has such a great eye for style. I couldn't stop gushing over her outfit that she wore yesterday. It's pretty recent, that she has set out to own her own business and turned her dream into a reality, and I can't wait to see more from her. For me that's the goal - to wake up every morning, excited to work for yourself. I'm happy to know so many strong, creative women in this city.
