New York, how I hated you and grew to love you I will never know. You made me feel like an ant in a really big big world where everything is seemingly larger than life. Perhaps I was just intimidated until I got to know you. Guess it's kind of what people say when they meet me and then finally get to know me. Perspective.
Needless to say I was beyond happy to be back in the Big Apple. Seemingly, it's always a must when headed to the US. And this time, New York had a special surprise! It was New York Fashion Week! Completely unplanned as I was in the US for a family wedding. Coincidence or fate? I'd like to say fate. After all everything in life happens for a reason. A constant chain reaction of events.
Of course I couldn't attend any shows, after all I am a 'no-one' that just happens to be a fashion addict but that wasn't gonna stop me from soaking up the vibrant bustle and excitement that is NYFW. So I kitted up, headed down to meat packing district to check out The Shop @NYFW where friend and talented artist Bradley Theodore had an incredible mural on the shop wall! If you don't know his work, check it out. You will fall in love!
So aside from checking out the official shop, I got to do a bit of shopping, walk the High Line and get a taste of the NYFW buzz with bloggers and fashionistas roaming the city streets. I wore my favorite new skirt from Pinko plus a detailed leather jacket finished with sneakers. Of course everything I was wearing was last season, but hey who cares? Plus as an added bonus, I managed to actually get some style compliments! Score!
