I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

New York excitement and new buys...

It's exactly 11 days until I go to New York! I've just booked my place on the Sex & the City tour too and I'm going with my uni course. I'm getting excited but just can't wait until I have handed in all my uni work, then I'll be even more excited!

So, I've been trying to find cute and warm things to wear whilst there, as I want to look nice but I've heard it's freezing so I'm probably just going to give up and end up looking like an eskimo :(

Lovely new hat with a corsage on the side, £4.99, H&M

Instead of my usual bright red obsession, I went for more of a dark berry red which is a colour I'm really loving at the moment.

As I always have to have some sort of bow in my hair, I thought it would look too busy to have a normal size bow in my hair, so to add a bit of detail to the hat I secured it with a tiny gold hair slide.

So I have this one and also another hat which is my favourite, bright red with a big bow on it...

Here's the bright red hat that will be accompanying me to New York~

Hat, Topshop
Shoes, belt & dress, New Look
Lace waistcoat, Apple Tree Boutique

Now to find another snood (customize with a brooch) and some warm boots and woollen socks...

If you've been to New York, I'd love it if you could give me some tips on best places to go,see and shop =)

    Have fun in New York!


  3. I'm so jealous you're going to New York. I want to go back! Have an amazing time - it's difficult to take it all in at first. It is rather cold out there so layer up some knit wear (: Furthermore, wear some comfortable shoes! Fifth Avenue is obviously a good place to start.

  4. thankyou =)
