My friends… I’ve got news for you. Plaid is the new floral print. No, seriously. It’s everywhere and you’ll see it again next summer (as seen at Dries Van Noten) and I finally figured out how to wear it. It’s such a trick print, you really need to style it right, otherwise you’ll look like a carpenter or Aidan from Sex & The City (yeah, I started watching the show again before going to NY and stopped at episode 10 from season 3). Well, you get my point.

So, here’s what I wore last Monday in New York. I had a meeting with Ilse, the owner of Wink Stores, who showed me around the new store in Soho. Loved it so much! Huge space and it feels very urban yet girly. You must check it out if you’re in town, you’ll find fabulous dresses at reasonable price points. I got my hands on some really nice pieces that I’ll be posting on the blog as soon as I get this university dissertation out of the way! Following this meeting, I had such a yummy lunch at ABC Kitchen - you need to try it! It’s super trendy/super healthy – perfect combo, right? These pictures were taken in SoHo right next to the Opening Ceremony store and before my meeting with Tibi! But i’ll get into that later this week… stay tuned!
