Lower East Side

Monday, June 5, 2017


Just another evening of doing what one does when arriving early to dinner... taking photos against random apartment buildings, of course. Just around the corner from our hotpot dinner was this corner that quietly served as the perfect backdrop for some outfit photos. Despite needing frequent breaks from the city, there is no other place teeming with as much character at every step.

New York's Lower East Side is has this imperfectly cool vibe that lets you breathe when the madness of Manhattan starts taking over. It feels darker and more unrefined than its neighboring areas while still holding some of the best spots in the city, making it a reminder that imperfection builds character. Maybe I'm just using that as an excuse for my realization that our Lyft ride left seatbelt marks on my top (oops). Or maybe it's totally okay to have a wrinkled gash down my top while walking the streets of a neighborhood that still carries New York's authentic grit. I'll go with the latter.

  5. I used to think I've always wanted to live in NYC, I love it but have not been in ages. I think it's a city that I just love to visit, but probably not reside. But, who knows! The top is adorable!
