New York Look

I just purchased a one way ticket to New York City!!! I am leaving in less than TWO weeks! Besides having a place to stay and a way of getting to NYC I have planned absolutely nothing else. Crazy? Yes. Spontaneous? Yes. How will I survive alone in the biggest city in the world? Well, I have an American citizenship so I plan on finding a job, I also have quite a few friends and family members in New York (my mom's from there), and I've lived in New York before for short periods of time so I'm used to it. In other words, I'm sure everything will work out just fineeee.

So now the biggest thing I have to worry about is: what do I wear? I'm kind of on a budget since I have to pay for living and food so I plan on shopping at Topshop and Flea Markets only (which isn't such a bad thing...). Ideally how I want to dress this summer, especially since summer in New York is very very very hot and I have no air conditioning where I am living, I want to wear very simple, light dresses, tops, shorts, and skirts. One brand that really emulates how I want to dress, but unfortunately is only available for purchase in Europe, is American Vintage. I've written a post before about American Vintage so I'm just going to show some outfits from their Summer '11 collection along with some other things I want to wear this summer!

Look: Clean, Feminine, Simple, Light, Effortless

  3. That is amazing! And allow me to early welcome you to new york neighbor! Where will you be staying? I'm on the UWS and I love it!

    Word to the wise though for shopping, if you are on a budget Topshop will not be your best bet...you need to try Buffalo Exchange. Its a great thrift store that even has designer stuff! Plus its way cheaper than Topshop and still cute, guaranteed!
