My time in NYC was fantastic. I carpe diemed every minute. Leaving very inspired thanks to the girls Lani, Saskia & Sutida (Make sure to Check Out the creative Stuff they do), the Conversations we had, The ethnical diversity, Culture, and (street) art. I kept it quite casual most of the time and brought a lot of vintage pieces to NYC – as a challenge to keep my wardrobe more sustainable. The way I see it styling vintage is A lot of fun. And the options for Vintage Shopping in NYC are greeeeat! We checked out every vintage store we could get a hold of. Shop til you drop 😉 Stores like Hamlets Vintage, Friends NYC and Beacons Closet both in Brooklyn and Manhattan are definitely worth a visit. Also check out Dover Street Market which feels like a fashion museum. Since I got a lot of input and inspiration, here comes a quick overview of my favorite items, vintage finds, and outfits for NYFW.
I rocked the new Ray-ban Evolve almost every day – they aren’t out yet but will be very soon. I love the shape and yellow tinted shades that spice up every outfit and match my afro – looking groovy and serving foxy vibes. Fun Fact: I dropped the glasses from the 5th floor of Moma to the 2nd floor, and they didn’t even get a scratch. When I picked them up at the security desk, I couldn’t believe they were in perfect shape. Big UP to Ray-Ban!
If you followed my story you know, I wore the clear belt bag almost every day. It is very convenient and stylish at the same time and allows you handsfree texting and story-ing all day. 😉
As you have undoubtedly noticed animal prints are ON this season. I rocked my Leopard flared silky skirt from The Frankie Shop a lot (exact same one here). I love to style it down with a cool T-shirt – and up with some heels and a cute top. I also realized that a Leo skirt is a perfect shopping buddy. Meaning it’s a piece that looks good with a lot of tops, shirts, hoodies. You know those kinds of dangerous outfits to wear on a shopping spree that seem good with everything? Well, that’s a Leo skirt.
I LOVE TO BUY ACCESSORIES AND STICK TO THEM. One of My favorite online Shops to buy miscellaneous is Los Feliz Shop. I bought the blue straw bag (first look), the shell brooches and some other amazing stuff there. The shell broches are soo versatile – worn together or separately, they add serious venus vibes to every outfit. Felt like a perfect goodbye Summer look, now that the warm days are coming to an end.
Am I the only one who loves to wear stuff immediately after purchase? 🙂 Well, when I found the overknee snake boots in Beacons Closet I had to jump right into them. Accompanied by a funny coincidence: The blogger who owned them before was shopping in the store as well and was like: you go girl, Rock them! 🙂 And that’s exactly what I did.
And don’t forget to Mix & Match! 🙂
