Nothing nice in the City

Oh, where to begin??? As I had previously mentioned, I was super excited to attend FFFWeek in New York. I had mentally packed, prepared myself for all types of debauchery and randomness in the City and then.....I GET SICK. I'm talking throat on fire, nose running, coughing spells, vomiting sick. It started the Saturday night before I left that Tuesday morning and I was determined to fight it. I pulled out all the stops: sweating out the fever, tea and honey, DayQuil...you name it, I was on it. Needless to say, I woke up in the middle of the night in New York with a damn ear infection. Yes, you read correctly: AN EAR INFECTION. I drugged myself up and even visited a walk in clinic at Duane Reade, but I'll be honest; I felt like crap pretty much the entire trip.To make matters worse, I even popped a blood vessel in my eye *DEEP SIGH* I'm currently on the mend; I just hate that my trip wasn't as great as I know it could've been. I wasn't able to attend all of the events that I wanted; I was simply exhausted a few of the nights, so you won't see a ton of outfit pics. It is what it is.

 I'm going to separate my posts into 2 parts; this post will be OOTD'S and the following post will feature the events I attended. 

 This top is actually a dress with a tulip hem, but as you can see, these thighs cannot be contained. I loved the print too much to leave it in the store, so I improvised :-)
Dress: Zoe's Vintique (L.A), Skirt: H&M, Shoes: B Brian Atwood

 Scarf worn as top: Slauson swapmeet, Pants: Jibri, Shoes: Cathy Jean (btw, I met Jasmine Elder, the designer of Jibri. More on that later :-D

All White Cruise outfit (my version). Top: Asos, Skirt: Anthropologie.

And there you have it...pretty much all the outfit pics I was able to take. Next post will be pics from some of the events and a personal note on bloggers...stay tuned.
