I ♡ New York


3 months away with my sister.
3 months of drinking cocktails.
3 months filled with a lot of shopping.

One of my favorite places of course was New York. Breathtakingly beautiful every corner you take, and scenery just like the movies. There wasn't a day I was stuck at taking a nice photo.

Day One: 25.11.11
Excited about yellow taxi's and hotdog stands, it would have been rude not to take the opportunity to capture the sun beaming down on the small yellow hotdog stand in the middle of the pavement.

Leaving the subway at Union Square, 14th street, we found a cute little Christmas market which we had to adventure through, looking at lots of quirky stalls and listening to enlightening conversations of what American's did for their Thanks Giving,(which happened to be the previous day.)

After having a mooch around the Christmas market, we adventured through the streets, wondering around like typical tourists, snapping at every opportunity we had, and walking with our heads pointing upwards, taking in the surrounding buildings.

Having shopped in and around a few shops, a shop that really got my attention, but not completely for the right reasons, was LF Stores, (150 5th Ave, New York, NY 10011) Selling beautiful, stylish clothing and accessories, but not taking any care of them, and it all just seemed to be dumped in piles, randomly around the store, with no thought to merchandising what so ever. Yes the clothes were nice, they probably sell themselves, but seriously, when your selling garments at that price, shouldn't you think about caring for them before the customer purchases them? It was such a strange shop, but filled with the most beautiful things, I actually wanted to buy it all...but instead just purchased the silver skull bracelet in the picture above.
