It’s been a while.

New York was amazing – the month went by really fast and I was sad to leave, although hopefully I’ll be back soon. I did a lot of shopping (obviously) and managed to hit up thrift stores in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and New Haven (I took a tour of Yale on the way back home). More on that later…

This isn’t really an outfit that I wore somewhere – I just wanted to put on a dress and heels and dance around for the camera a bit, something I haven’t done in a long time. The dress is new, from H&M on sale. It really reminds me of Twiggy, and the 60’s in general – when I get a chance (aka when it’s not too ridiculously hot to wear something creative) I’m going to put together an awesome 60’s outfit with this dress.

I didn’t take any outfit photos in New York, and it turns out that taking photos from Facebook and cropping out everyone else (to protect the innocent, duh) doesn’t produce the best quality photos – but here are a few.

1. July 4th – I wore red, white and blue! If I was at home I would have put together something really spectacular and crazy, but since I needed to be just a tiny bit practical (we went to Battery Park to see Conor Oberst and Jenny Lewis, and sitting on the ground was involved) I wore my sailor sweater, red heart sunglasses, a blue headband, and my awesome new late 90’s/early 00’s tacky denim shorts (more on that later!)

2. My class went on a field trip to PS1 – they have this super cool installation (?) that looks like a pool, but it’s actually an inch of water on top of glass, and a room underneath that people can go into and be “under” the water. Pretty neat stuff. So this is me in the pool, grinning from the sheer awesomeness of it all.

3. So we went shopping and my friend had to return something at Juicy so me and my other friend goofed off and took photos in the fitting rooms. Fun fact: The fitting rooms at Juicy are ridiculously plush and silly and fancy-schmancy – yeah, we had fun.
I’m wearing my 50’s-style bathing suit under a sheer UO tee, a high-waisted skirt that is now too small in the waist (damn Pop-Tarts) and my precious Payless heels.

Oh funny story – I was walking back from class and this girl behind me was like “I love your shoes! Those are the Marc by Marc Jacobs ones, right? Are they comfortable to walk in?”
and I was like “um, no…These are from Payless. They cost $9. But thanks!” At least I’m fooling some people… I think that’s a good thing…

More on New York, my purchases, etc. later… Right now I’m doing various sewing projects, being lazy, and studying to get my learner’s permit…We’ll see how that goes.
