I've got the East Village blues.
One of the best travel tips I ever received was, "Go out and get lost." At first I was a little skeptical, why would I want to do that? What if my phone dies? But, they were so right. It's always been something that stuck with me whenever I'm traveling to a new city or country, or basically any new environment I'm not familiar with. You turn down streets you never would have, find restaurants you never knew existed, and come across hidden gems all over the place. I've found so many cool vintage shops, and coffee bars all over my new neighborhood. I've lived in New York 5 years now and it's always cool to come across new places you haven't seen or been before. If you live in NYC you know that when we leave our door we usually are on a mission to get from point A to B, avoiding tourists, and traffic at all coasts. So it was fun when I did this shoot completely unknowing where we'd end up... It kept things fresh and exciting.
We ended up choosing this cool artwork to add some color to my all denim look. (If you guys know the artist comment below). I'm wearing a FW 17 vintage wash denim jacket with contrasting sleeves from McQ by Alexander McQueen, Ine Cigarette jeans from AllSaints, white Nike Free sneakers, wool cap and AMOUR hoodie from Sandro.
To be honest it wasn't warm enough for the weather that day, feels like Winter is right around the corner. Counting down the days until Art Basel in Miami! Anyone else going?
Thanks to my girl Tyra ( @theedgyhippiechild ) for embracing the cold and helping me capture this look effortlessly!
Hope you guys have a good weekend.
