A colourful fashion blog supporting independents & sustainable fashion in Bristol and beyond

At the beginning of February I went to New York with my husband Phil to celebrate his 40th Birthday (so we are both 40 this year, how did this happen?) we stayed at NobleDen on Grand Street in between Little Italy and China Town. A cool and modern place to stay Downtown with a view of the Empire state building from our window. A perfect base for our first ever visit to New York and highly recommended.

Places visited
Staten island / Statue of Liberty
Time Square
Ace Hotel 
Otto's Shrunken Head
911 Memorial and Museum

A random and personal itinerary of places visited, all unique to our favourite things including fashion, kawaii, skate, art, toys, brilliant eateries including traditional American diners, Thai, Mexican and Italian restaurants, modern hipster cafes and bars, a Tiki cocktail bar playing all of our favourite music, plus many of New York's famous landmarks.

Fashion-wise, New York is freezing in February so lots of warm clothes and layering are essential. My life savers were my Topshop faux fur hunters hat and coat, polo necks, oversized jumpers and fleece lined tights! I enjoyed extreme layering and pretty much got it right despite the freezing temperatures, I was warm, comfortable and looked good. I was glad I could dress up in my usual city style mash up, most holidays I go on are either in family orientated hot Mediterranean or English seaside towns, where my style is usually met with confusion!

New York, I love you! I could honestly live in New York, we met some lovely people and characters and I will definitely be back. Miss you already xx

We met this lovely lady Lindsay Lowe in Otto's Shrunken Head on our last night in NYC, Lindsay designs brilliant vintage rockabilly style catseye sunnies and glasses, influenced by cartoons and Horror films, these glasses have SFX and glow under UV lights!!  Lindsay kindly gave me a bright yellow leopard print pair of her sunnies and tried to take us to a Vice Magazine party (oh my gosh, we would have loved to have gone but we had to pack!!!) Thanks so much for the sunnies Lindsay. Check Lindsay Lowe eyewear out today! lindsayloweeyewear.com
