In February, I went on a trip to New York and created 4 style stories there, each inspired by a New York fashion icon. This is the second part. You can find part one of my New York Style Stories here!
Hi! Those that follow me on instagram have probably already seen part of this look and the amazing view from this place. I made a super over-the-top video of me and my BFF singing Empire State Of Mind by Alicia Keys & Jay Z. If you haven’t seen it yet you can watch it here!
My second style story is inspired by Jessa, one of the characters of the Girls series. I relate to her bohemian look and especially to her love for kimonos, feathers, hats and statement earrings. She’s got a big mouth and attitude, which is basically me. Watch her best moments below. Btw, if you like Girls you will sure dig this illustration blog with quotes from the series!
During our trip we were staying at a friend of a friend’s apartment and she was so kind to take us to her favorite spots in Brooklyn (which I’ll share with you in the next post!). Around sunset, we had some G&T’s at The Ides, the rooftop bar at The Wythe Hotel which is located in Greenpoint, at the tip of Brooklyn. The view was amazing, as you can see! I would love to stay in this hotel whenever I come back to NYC. It used to be a factory that was transformed into a boutique hotel. If you’re looking for a nice spot to sip cocktails while looking over Manhattan’s skyline, The Ides is the place to go. Also a good bar for people-on-a-date spotting.
As I mentioned before, next up is a post with a whole bunch of places to go in Brooklyn. Stay tuned!
