To New York City, Love Acne Paper

I was reading a interview with Thomas Persson, editor in chief of Acne Paper. This current issue is dedicated to New York and features photos and stories about the beloved city. What struck me the most in the interview was something Perrson said about  those who come to New York. Here is the excerpt from the interview:

What do you think makes New York so mesmerizing?
Because it attracts a certain kind of person. People who choose to live in New York City are often full of ambition and drive. They have an enthusiasm for what they’re doing and for life. So it has this electric intensity that you don’t find in Europe. You come to New York if you really want to accomplish something. There’s a very high level of energy. Also, because it’s so compressed. It’s this little island, it’s a small place and the whole world has gathered here. I think that is really unique.

“You come to New York if you really want to accomplish something.” That’s my favorite part. Millions of people here in this city, struggling just to make it. But for most of us, that is something we chose. We’ve all come to New York for different reasons, but ultimately our shared reason is to be inspired.

Saturday Night Chic

Tomorrow night….is Saturday. My best friend is coming up to New York to visit me and tour NYU since she was accepted their for graduate school. We plan on hitting up one of the hottest, most coveted bar/club in the city. I wanted to post what I’m thinking of wearing. This club is for the fashion elite, who’s who, models, press, pr power players and bosses of the city, so I have to be on my A-game fashion-wise. Here’s what I got so far:

  1. Hot Pink H&M Blazer
  2. H&M floral corset top (the one pictured is from Topshop and looks similar to mine)
  3. Black Lace Shorts from Zara
  4. House of Holland suspender tights from Topshop
  5. Black suede-looking wedges from H&M
  6. Pink Noveau lipstick from MAC (contemplating buying to complete this look)

If this all works out, I’ll definitely post pictures from my night out.

New York

Hi, everyone. I know it’s been a while since I last updated but I made the move to New York City to try and pursue my dream of working here full time, and possibly working in fashion. Since I’ve been here I splurged a bit on a few items and I just wanted to share:

Chanel Attraction nail polish, from the Spring 2012 runway. Apparently this is supposed to come out in May but I got it in SoHo.

Topshop MOTO Baroque Hotpants

Hot Pink Blazer from H&M
