leather jacket: vintage, tee: target, skirt: handmade

so after arriving in nyc around 11pm (i left right after work).. i met up roz and the rest of our group to begin a weekend full of late nights, good eating and lots of walking... that first night we ended up walking back to through an eerily empty time square (albeit it was like 3am).. and TGFO took quite the photo.. despite my awkward pose with my own camera in hand... the next evening half the group went to a yankees game and the rest of us took the subway and headed to dine at morimotos for dinner... it was absolutely delectable. the next few days included more wandering the city and seeing the sites.. evenings noshing on delicious foods.. and our late nights spent partying it up in the city...

  7. NYC subways!!!! Loving this look on you, by the way. Perfect for New York. What a jacket (= loving it!

    I hear you, sizes have changed; drastically. It's hard to keep up. Which is why I end up in a crazy frenzy trying on too many things before buying. I hate bringing in 4 pairs of jeans into the dressing room just because I'm unsure of the size/fit. >< UGH!

  31. There is nothing like taking pictures in New York (it IS in New York, isn't it?). It looks so much more interesting than "normal" fashion pics. I love your blazer and your leather jacket! Oooh being alone in Times Square must have been great and scary at the same time...
