I am currently eating the most expensive burger I've ever had and kind of sad that I'll be leaving this incredible city tomorrow..

Went vintage-scouring down in Soho and found a few kind of crazy pieces like a ridiculously oversized lapel jacket, a floral embossed leather clutch, and a strapless sequined rose-print bustier. 

If you're ever in New York, check out Screaming Mimi's and Tokio7!

Wearing vintage pale yellow drop neckline blouse, Zara trousers, vintage Wranglers denim jacket, necklace from a sample sale in LA (can't remember the designer's name), Marni wedges

Your my favourite fashionblogger! It used to be Fashiontoast but that girl has gone a bit too much to the trashy road..You're grungey but never too much. It's still feminine and clean. You have a perfect balance imo.

sophia said...

love your necklace

Sarah said...

Love the ensemble, especially the wedges and the trousers. And as for the expensive burger, i hope it taste as good as it cost lol

Frou Flu said...

Just discovered your blog and I love it--why didn't I find it sooner?! I hope you're having a fab time in NYC! I love it there, and I always visit Tokio 7 every time I'm there. Even though it's pretty claustrophobic in there, it has some great finds! I got a Marc Jacobs wool jacket from there and it was in perfect condition! Enjoy the rest of your stay in NYC!

I love your wedges. The outfit is androgynous and reminds of Shane from The L Word. My friend recommended this site http://www.makemechic.com and found cheap apparel and women's shoes that fashion lovers like me with a budget can splurge on.
