Lovin', Is What I Got.

Well, I didn't really get "Lovin" while I was in NY for two days, but I sure got a lot of clothes. Which I don't know about you but it was sure good enough for me. Let's review!

American Apparel -
Exibit A:

Exibit B: mesh top sweetheart geo-print dress (I'll post a pic later!)

Alexander Wang cropped knit turtleneck sweater -
   This one was my favorite. Made it to Opening Ceremony at Ace Hotel finally, sans celebrations but most importantly sans crowd! The people working there were very nice, they offered to hold my suitcase and already present shopping bag while I looked around. Very impressed with the staff. Polite inquiry on if I needed help finding anything or if I had questions. I liked looking around at what they had. Some items peaked my interest but not longer than a couple of glances. And then, I saw the sweater. Trust me when I say my wallet was halfway out of my purse before you could say "Alexander Wang". (I still tried it on, always err on the side of caution. I still loved it.) Only thing is I wish it was a small or xsmall rather than a medium. But hey, you take what you can get.

H&M -
Knit vest flyaway cardigan sweater
Spaghetti strap ruched mini dress
(Pictures to come!!)

Surprisingly, I didn't get anything from Topshop. I mean, I typicaly do, but it was getting towards the end of my shopping excursion and everything I saw reminded me of what I had already gotten, cept not as good. Tried three things on, wasn't impressed. Especially for the prices. Although I am disappointed I didn't take advantage of their year round 10% student discount...

I did find a FABULOUS pair of denim from What Comes Around Goes Around. Those however are being shipped to me, so I'm gonna have to wait on showing you those. Sadly.

Quick stop at Opening Ceremony yielded no results. I wasn't exactly into it because I had already found what I was looking for. And I couldn't find any remaining Alex Wang items - those get me every time. The staff also seemed pretty exhausted, which is understandable. I was relieved when staffer Lizzy offered to hold my bags (must be an Opening Ceremony thing, niice). There was a Rodarte display up, which was mad cool. Noticed a lot of new faces since the last time I was there. And yeah pretty much. Good times in nyc!
