N Y C ☆ part 2 - shopping!

1 Comment »

Shopping! Here are most of the things I bought during my stay in New York City

It's a bit mixed - mostly casual stuff but also things that would work for gyaru, cult party kei, shironuri and street style!

H&M: Red dress
Really simple but I've wanted a dress like this for a long time, and I've really grown fond of red lately! And it fits perfectly ♡

Forever 21: Betty Boop Sweater // Soft knitted pastel sweater
The Betty Boop sweater is currently one of my favourite clothing items.. It's a bit kitschy, wonderfully oversized, super comfy and cozy!
The knitted one is so so cute, I feel like an ice cream when I wear it..

Second hand: Pippi cardigan // Vintage chiffon robe
The cardigan for casual looks, and maybe mori girl?
The robe for cult party kei or maybe shironuri..!

Second hand: School girl like skirt // Fake suede shorts // Flower printed dress/top
The skirt is super cute and comfy, and it's a really good fit! Will use it for casual outfits, or maybe something school girl inspired.
The shorts are too big but they look so nice.. Will try to coord them with something for a gyaru like look, and they are super soft too!
The dress/top is actually sleepwear, but I will use it as a cute top instead, maybe with the shorts.

Second hand: Pink Sweater // Century 21: Badger cardigan
Just a simple pink sweater to use when it's cold, it was really cheap too!
We went to Century 21, a huge department store..! The only thing I found after almost two hours of searching was a badger cardigan. It was so unique and cute so I just had to buy it.. It's really soft too. ♡

 Random stores: 5 pairs of tights (dark blue, white, lilac and 2 pink) // Cat collar (for me.. It was cute okay) // Foundation // Brown eyeliner // Concealer // Heart jewelry - a necklace, bracelet and two earrings // Pink fluffy socks
Second hand: Betty Boop wallet - the wallet I currently use, it holds a lot and it's perfect!
MoMA store: A pink soap with a bite mark - it smells wonderfully of lemon, will have it on my shelf
Grocery store: A can of Campbells tomato soup.. As a Warhol fan I just had to, we don't have those cans in Sweden..

Bookstore: 0,5 mm black gel pen - forgot all my ink pens in Sweden and this one looked so nice..!
John Green: Looking for Alaska - Finished his book The Fault in Our Stars when I was there, so bought this one
Julie Maroh: Blue is the Warmest Color - Really want to see the film, but I want to read this one first! Saving it for a cozy night at home ♡
Grocery store: A package of original skittles - No idea why I haven't eaten those yet.. But I will.

Other things I bought was mostly gifts and such, so couldn't show them here! Well, that was my NYC blog posts.. Oh, if you would like a review/closer look at something just tell me. ♡

N Y C ☆ part 1

As some of you know, I got a trip to New York with my dad for my birthday! We spent a week there and it was lovely but cold, I really fell in love with the city. Never been to The States before, so this was big..!

Not going to go into detail about what we did, because we mainly walked around, ate good food, looked at stuff and just had fun! Neither of us are much for tourist stuff, and my dad has been in New York before.

We lived at a really strange and interesting hotel in central Manhattan (5 minutes from Time Square!) for the first three night. It was named YOTEL and the whole hotel had a real sci-fi feeling to it (they had a huge robot arm that took care of your luggage for example)!

The entrance.. I mean, just look at it! More pictures on their website:

For the rest of the trip we rented an apartment in Brooklyn, it was lovely!
Here comes a bunch of pictures my dad took, I barely took any pictures because my phone memory was full, and my hand were super cold 99% of the time..

We ate so much good food! We found a great place in Korea town, best kimchi I ever had!

In Central Park and then at the airport, just before we left..

We also visited some relatives! My dad's cousin to the left, and his lovely daughter. ♡

Strawberry Fields.. This was big for me and my dad, I have wanted to visit this for a long time, I really want to see it in the summer too!

Found a weird beetle sticker in Brooklyn, I really loved how the walls were so cluttered with things! There was inspiration everywhere. ♡
And here's some pictures I took!

My dad looks like a really nice walrus ♡

Fact: I'm obsessed with everything food-ish in small packages - if it's in a cute little package/bottle/carton I want it, no matter if it's caviar or chocolate pudding or milk. I got way too exited when I found mini pies for under one dollar.. And then I found goat milk, strawberry flavoured! (as a milk allergic goat milk is great, for being milk that is)

Went second hand shopping in Brooklyn, found these amazing (but a bit too small..) shoes, and a Yoko pillow..?

Kudos to my dad for making me eat properly ♡

Obligatory food collage - everything was so delicious..
Peking duck noodle soup // American banana pancakes // Best frozen yoghurt I ever had // Tonkatsu, and bento in the background

That was part one! Part two will be about my shopping finds, stay connected ♡
If I'm ever going back to New York, is there something I need to do that I missed out? Because I would love to go back!~
