Oh darling East Village, how your quiet vibes and loud-speaking graffiti have wooed me...
In case you can't already tell, I seem to have suddenly fallen deeply in love with a neighbourhood in Manhattan. It took only a single leisurely Saturday afternoon for me to fall head over heels.
Now you may be asking, why do I love East Village so much? My answer can be summed up with four dainty bullet points:
- the quiet, relaxed vibe
- dozens of community gardens
- graffiti galore
- foodie heaven (wink wink, Big Gay Ice Cream)
I've recently been gravitating toward black and white stripes on everything - shirts, dresses, you name it (I even bought a black & white striped shower curtain the other day!). I love the ease of black and white stripes - they seem to pair well with anything and are a definite fashion classic.
A tip for fellow lazy-girl fashionistas: having a dress in a classic print such as black and white stripes makes dressing in a rush so much easier. All you have to do is throw it on and voilà --you can pair it with pretty much anything and chances are, it'll look fab.
