city lights will inspire you


Hi All!
Well, I'm finally back from New York. The travelling there and back was hellish (I'm not a fan of flying), but the trip itself was absolutely fantastic! I had so much fun exploring the city, eating at fabulous restaurants, and shopping. It was especially great to meet some readers, thanks for introducing yourselves, it's always such a highlight to meet people who read the blog. The only strange part of my stay was not being legal drinking age there... It's hard enough looking 16 when the drinking age is 19. I definitely can't pass for 21 even though it's only 4 months away... but thankfully all waiters either took pity or were clueless and served me anyhow.
As promised, I said I'd list some of my favourite spots:
Le Pain Quotidien for brunch, Opening Ceremony for letting me come face to face with Adam Levine (who is 100x hotter in real life, if that's possible), Daha Vintage for fabulous vintage coats and bags, Tokio 7 for well curated consignment, Fabulous Franny's for wicked vintage eye wear, Baja News Cafe for the largest rack of fashion magazines I'd never even heard of, Buffalo Exchange, where you can occasionally find fantastic scores, Acapella for old school dining and impeccable service that doesn't exist anymore, and The Ritz-Carlton for the city's best concierge, staff, bar food (hello parmesan and truffle french fries!) and for letting me steal as many pens as I wanted.
There were many other places that I'm forgetting, and so many other places on my list that I never got a chance to visit. I guess this just means I've got to go back again soon!

God i love NYC!!!!!! These pictures are all gorgeous in their candour and you KNOW i LOVE LOVE LOVE that scarf. this is a great nyc jaunt outfit- comfy chic, just the kind of thing i woud have packed and lived in on a similar trip.
im soooo scared of flying too so i can relate to how you felt (in fact i won't do it without knock-out presciption drugs going forward lol!) and i know the weather was particularily conducive to turbulence around the time you went so i sympathize completely :)

Did you bring home any great pieces?

I definitely feel your pain on the drinking age here. It's so idiotic - but I'm 21 in 2 months, at least. & how funny, I saw Adam Levine once too at a restaurant near LA. He is definitely a looker. Love the crocheted scarf.


I like the header, too.

Oh the drinking age. We manage to survive until we're 21, here. You just have to be clever. but it's odd, isn't it? I LOVE that big scarf. Fantastic. And your outfit is so New York (and I live here, so I have some expertise!)

ahhh! my dear you look so wonderful in new york!! I absolutely love your scarf! It's great to know that you had fun there!

About photobucket v. imageshack - photobucket has a very small bandwidth limit - which means that if your site gets certain amount of traffic and you're past your limit, you need to pay to upload your photos or else they just won't show up when you link them, but with imageshack you can upload virtually as many as you want without exceeding a bandwidth limit!!

I hope that helps!
