We are finally here! Our North American adventure has begun. Im currently sitting on the couch(which also doubles as our humble sleeping quarters for the time being) of a new friend, trying to fit in a blog post before I get deep into my Multinational Management class readings for the week. Theres so much to you all, so many things to share... I dont really know where to start. I suppose Ill start you off with one of my most favourite places on this trip so far, Williamsburg.
Williamsburg is basically the super cool dude part of Brooklyn. Its only one stop into Brooklyn from Manhattan on the L-train. You can't really walk past a single person without thinking to yourself "I love that jacket/those boots/that hair". Plus its packed full of some of the most amazing vintage stores I've ever seen in my life. First of all, there's Beacons Closet on N11th.
This place is like crack for vintage lovers. It was basically a gigantic warehouse full of amazing pieces at relatively decent prices.
Even Regan managed to find an abundance of stuff.
And then...there was this amazing cord cape!
Vintage cacharel.. $20 :)
It really didnt bother us a whole lot that we had lost a material possession. What got to me was that we would lose some of the first pictures we took when we got to the US. Plus, when we got on our Sanfran to Newyork flight Regan found an ipod in his seat pocket. It was pink, so he asked me if I wanted it. We both decided that we didnt want to risk any bad karma and decided to hand it in... despite the fact that the girl would probably never get it back (United Airlines :-| ).
