Why is this woman smiling?????
It's because I won a trip to New York City! I.know. I so freaking know, I feel the same way! I won't give out too many details yet but I'll be flying to the NYC the week of July 15th through the17th and I need some guidance. I need to know where to go, where to eat and where to shop. Ok, I really just need to know where to shop. I'll only be in New York for two days so I gotta hit the ground running. Okay, okay, you can tell me where to eat too I guess. A girl's gotta refuel.
(Shoes are from Zara. Their summer sale has given me life.)
As some of you know I went to New York last September and had a blast so I'm looking forward to visiting again. The best part of this visit: It's on someone else's dime. I also won a $500 gift card and have a photoshoot scheduled. I.know!!!!!!
Bracelets: InPink; Sam Moon; Forever 21
Tee: New York newsstand
Shorts: Levi's; old
I'm looking for items unique to New York so I want to shop thrift stores, flea markets, or anything that we don't have in Dallas. I'll be there Monday through Wednesday so I'm not sure if that makes a difference for shopping. Funky earrings, chunky necklaces, anything African print, bold colors or printed anything will send my heart into overdrive so tell me where to go. I'll be in Soho but I'm down for riding the train too, my Metro card is still active!
I'm also in a quandry as to how I want to wear my hair. Keep the braids or curly sew in? I'm terrified of them messing up my hair at the photoshoot so this is why I am not opting to wear my natural hair. What say you people?
Help me out. For real. I need you guys!
