Memories of Brooklyn

December 6, 2013

I may have mentioned this before (I am pretty sure I did, but one of my favourite things to do when I travel is to go shopping. Not only because I like seeing things I can’t find where I live but also because when I wear them back home it always reminds me of the good times that were had.

As I wore the bunny jumper seemed like the perfect excuse to share these photos of Brooklyn, as they have until now remained hidden on my hard drive. I took them last year, a day before hurricane Sandy hit the city. I bought that jumper on that weekend, when Mr D and I went shopping together in the Soho area.

See, I cannot resist a cute bunny wabbit.

Nor an owl…

… or a (big) cat.

Here is the outfit that sparked this trip down memory lane: Coat – H&M (via Ebay), Jumper – Forever 21, Leopard skirt – Ebay, Shirt – Ben Sherman (thrifted, also worn here) Shoes – Seaside (discount shoe store in Portugal), Black Scarf – Oscar (Oscar de la Renta, via TK Maxx), Leopard Head Scarf – Flea Market in Lisbon

The last two photos were taken by Filipa, on our lunch break.

Tomorrow I am going down to ASOS in London for the Social Media School event. I’ll be posting about it as well as a new post for the Tattoo Files feature and my very own Christmas shopping guide! Stay tuned and have a lovely weekend!

    Wonderful pictures! The figures on the doors to the library are lovely, and I can’t believe how big that doorway is! You were there the day before Sandy? I assume you were still there when it hit? Must have been so scary.

    Anyway, such a cool outfit, and I love the color of your hair!

      I was there before and during Sandy! One of the scariest events of my life – we don’t get many hurricanes in Europe.

    The gold door plaques are so whimsical, like a fairytale, such a great invitation to a building. Incredible. I’m glad all these good memories come back. And the photos of you are awesome. I love your bunny shirt especially.

      I was fascinated by that portal, just what an entrance to a house of knowledge should be – fascinating!
