Last month I was in New York for what was quite possibly thee hottest and shortest trips I’ve ever took that required me to be on a flight longer than two hours! I wanted to go to New York for two reasons; a) I hadn’t been in about eight years…I know, ridiculous and b) I needed to experience the Comme Des Garcon exhibit that is still going on at The Met. The latter was the main idea for planning the trip and I had originally planned on a longer stay but decided against it…not smart but I definitely was able to fulfill most of my NY desires!
While the CDG exhibit was amazing; Rei Kawakubo is a genius and really knows how to create clothing as art, it was my stay in the Lower East Side that really had me wondering did I still make a mistake by not moving to New York in my twenties? Any who, this post is not about the should’ve could’ve would’ve blues but rather the sights and sounds that ignited my soul with each photo detailing my trip in a short yet simple way…enjoy!
