Here are a few purchases I made during my NY trip, which is why I am so broke now…. *sigh
I spent most of my time and money at Topshop in their accessory section, along with the street vendors in Soho
As you can see, I stuck with Topshop’s new “Freedom” jewelry collection. They’re great and so affordable.
This orange spikey bracelet is one of my favorite purchases, because the leather is so buttery soft and the lady selling it was so nice enough to make it specifically for me, since none of the ones on display fit my small wrist.
The light purple knot bracelet is also special because its made out of silk.
Bought a few lip balms from Topshop for some friends back home as a souvenir. It beats “I love NY” t-shirts
Unfortunately, I was unable to buy any shoes in New York, since I had limited space in my luggage, BUT I got a chance to buy a couple of platforms when I got back home. These are probably my last shoe purchases for the year….(maybe)

You can’t really tell from the lighting, but I fell in love with the color of these shoes. It’s almost like a pastel coral/pink color. The suede fabrication isn’t as soft as I hoped it would be, but you get what you pay for from Steve Madden, I guess. I haven’t worn these out yet, so I’m not sure the comfort level of it. I’m anticipating a lot of blisters and the occasional “limping”.

I’ve worn these out twice so far and I have officially made these my “going out/vegas/drunken debauchery” shoes, because these have been through war, and yet it still keeps its elegant look. I’ve worn these out two nights in a row, and I didn’t feel any throbbing or blistering on my feet the next day. The chunky heel might be the answer to this. These have got to be by far one of the most comfortable shoes I own. I give myself a lot of credit for this one. A great buy if you ask me.
I took advantage this past weekend to check out MOCA’s “Art In the Street” exhibit, since it was the last weekend they were showcasing it.
I made sure to take as many pictures as I could of all the great graffiti arts from a variety of talented street artists. I also made sure to take some shots of my black leather litas as well
The entrance into this amazing 1-2 hr exhibition…
I got in for $5-without a student ID, after persuading the guy at the front that I was still attending college. Never thought I would say this, but Thank you Asian genes for making me look like a youthful 18 yr old fresh out of highschool. I always knew you would come in handy some day.
Below 5 photos are from Banksy, which were one of my favorite artists from the exhibit…and I don’t care how many of you argue about how he never crafts his own artwork anymore. Even if he has his minions go around displaying his stuff, I still think it’s cool.
I can relate to this photo above…seriously, the story of my life. Except, its Mondays for me everyday.
Don’t be fooled. They weren’t real people, just mannequins dressed as one.
Yes, the back of the wall really spells out ‘Corn Bread’
At first glance, I thought it was Madonna… apparently, it was a sketch of another lady that looks just like her. Perhaps her doppleganger.
Ok, call me a little creepy by taking this picture of a random girl’s back, but look at her tattoo. I thought it was SO original. I wonder if its supposed to mean something? Or if it was one of those drunken nights…
LOILA striped “hamburglar” shirt, Zara black messenger purse, H&M skirt, Jeffrey Campbell ‘Lita’ booties
Sometimes we want things that are kind of out of our budget, but have no fear, ladies! I’ve come across some great bargains of shoes that look almost identical to your favorite brands!

When I think of the color silver, I dont know why, but I automatically think of foil and the tinman. ..
In this case though, I see silver being incorporated in various clothing, accessories and shoes..
