Dress Up

Every time I’m in New York City, I just can’t help but get all dressed up. Though in theory NYC is the champion of the all-black “model of duty” look, whenever I visit I’m instantly inspired to put together extra fun outfits, even for just a casual outing. I mean if you can’t wear it in the big apple, where can you wear it right?

I suppose this whole mentality about New York is what lead me to spend an entire day shopping in Soho in a pink tulle skirt. By the time we got back to the hotel later that evening I was shivering, tired, and barely able to stand on my heels anymore, but the moment when a little girl gasped and pointed “Look it’s a princess” on Broadway made it all worth it.

Like Emmett said, “I feel like you’re that sparkly tulle princess from, what’s that movie? Oh Enchanted!”

I'll Follow You Anywhere

Living in Toronto makes it almost too easy to constantly take mini trips down to New York City, the miniature universe where even the grime glitters with excitement. I’ve visited quite a few times over the past five years, but my most recent trip was perhaps the most special. My best friend Sarah and I drove down to take a bite of the big apple (and all the tasty food within it) as a farewell weekend before she moved across the country to finish her schooling in Vancouver. It was a truly unforgettable four days of delicious food, gorgeous sights and a LOT of spending. Here’s a little (ish) snippet of our adventures and a mini directory containing some of our favourite places (scroll all the way to the bottom.)
