1 & 2: central park. 3: chelsea. 4: brooklyn guy i met who showed me around for a day. 5: near times square. 6: made friends with a couple of awesome german guys. 7: brooklyn beach. 8: times square. 9: subway at night. 10: speaks for itself..
Despite being there for three weeks, I didn't take many photos. I instead focussed on immersing myself in the culture, rather than taking pictures of it.
I didn't do any of the tourist things..i didn't even see the statue of liberty!
New york was as amazing as i always imagined it to be. I have already decided to go for a three month working holiday at the beginning of next year..its the closest i can come to actually moving there.
My only regret? Being asked to be in a music video for a well known r&b artist and having to decline as i was leaving that day..that would have been amazing.
I had promised myself only to buy a few good things while there..it was hard but i came home with something i've wanted for a long time.
Alexander wang rocco duffle. Vintage scarf from store in the east village. cuff i found hanging on a pole in chelsea. pink ray bans. leopard shirt dress from h&m. limited edition brooklyn absolut vodka. 'new york in a box' from MOMA.
All i can think about is ways to get back to new york city as soon as i can...i think i've fallen in love.

there was a massive sale there the other day, which was housed in an empty store in the city. had i not passed by on one of my random walks i would never have known about it.
i walked out with a blouse from lover's 2008 collection, electric ladyland. Originally priced at $400, i got this baby for around 70% off.
It is two sizes too big for me, but i couldn't say no! i'm quite fond of the oversized feel, anyhow..
and a little something i also picked up on sale...

I went in with the intention of looking for a grey skirt, and wanting to make the experience as painless as possible. On my way out, next to the door, there it was. I literally gasped out loud. I knew straight away it was the one.
Don't you love when you see a piece of clothing and just know you need it in your life?

'ooo what coat should i wear today? tights maybe? boots, hurrah!'
after a few outfit changes i settled on something simple. i'll save the heavy layering, combat boots and scarf goodness for when it starts getting really cold.
dress: cotton on. cardi: witchery. boots: cassette society.
polka dots are quite cheery, wouldn't you say?
i've been thinking about colouring my hair, but i have no idea what to do...i guess this mop will have to stay until i decide.

seeing as i haven't posted for awhile, i thought this post could be my week in picture form...
part une: items i have a serious lust issue with..
i would kill for these tristan blair leopard booties. Literally murder someone. Ok, maybe not that far but i'd consider selling my soul.
part deux: today's outfit..
shirt dress: dotti. scarf: forever new. tights: sportsgirl.
a simple, thrown together outfit for rushing out the door. it felt so good to be wearing a scarf...i love autumn.
part trois: purchases..
drape cardigan: witchery
pictured here with a long satin top and acne wedges. i like to plan ways to wear pieces, although all that ever happens is a mad rush of throwing clothes everywhere trying to find something that matches.
and i swear, the cardi was all i bought this week! although even with that small purchase i felt a little guilty for my NY piggy bank..

dress and vest: sass & bide.
The dress i got on sale. The vest...well, i tell myself it is an investment piece. $490 for a vest?? insane...yet i swear it was calling me from it's place proudly displayed on a wall. 'come on...you know you wanna take me home.'
i have to admit, the thing is pretty crazy, what with it's ruffles and studs. but i love it.
another thing i've been rocking lately is pink PINK lips. a little pretty, a little whorish, digging it.
