Brooklyn



To be honest, the train ride across the bridge to Brooklyn had me a little concerned at first. It involves a somewhat symbolic journey away from the iconic NYC skyline, and towards what appears to be a never ending wasteland of graffiti and derelict buildings. However, upon arriving, Brooklyn immediately felt like a home away from home. Scattered with small cafes, thrift shores and independent boutiques, it is essentially exactly what I'd been searching for in NYC. 

On another note, I've decided I need to stop shopping at Zara. I had an embarrassing, and slightly ironic, realisation today that while I was walking around the incredibly hipster Brooklyn streets I was dressed almost entirely in Zara - one of the largest fashion chain-stores in the world.
Oops.
Maybe it's just because Zara isn't particularly accessible in Australia, or maybe it's the relatively low priced but still chic items, but I think it's safe to say I've been under a Zara-inflused haze over the last month. So, I'm starting a challenge with myself to incorporate more thrift-shopping, DIY fashion projects, and local labels in my wardrobe, along with less Zara. Wish me luck! 

Wearing: Zara coat, jeans, striped-tee and scarf, Forever 21 Jumper, Hunter wellingtons, thrifted sunglasses.
