I Locked My Heart in New York City

Whenever I go on holidays I am all for finding interesting, quirky things that the city has to offer. New York was one of those cities that was full of them! However, I found the array of padlocks, locked together on the Brooklyn Bridge, particularly amazing. As soon as I saw them I went crazy with the camera taking snaps of the locks. Ten minutes later I finally noticed all the messages on the locks. It turns out that lovers from all across the world come to New York (and other love hotspots) to lock their hearts with a padlock and throw the key into the river. Apparently it is a sign of eternal love! How neat! I just love finding quirky trends in the cities I visit, especially romantic ones. I can’t lie, I’m a bit of a romantic and the idea of locking your heart in the city of love (and fashion), yep, it’s got my vote.

Mismatched Patterns

This year, I rang in the new year in the fashion capital of the world, New York City. Everything about New York was incredible and literally took my breath away, from the world famous libraries to the architecture, scenery and of course the fashion. Just watching ‘typical New Yorkers’ stroll the gorgeous streets and laneways in their outfits of all different styles was such a wonderful experience. I was amazed by the amount of women (and men too) wearing pattern on pattern, mismatched patterns at that. Somehow they looked incredible, so very stylish. Surprisingly to me, mismatched suddenly became very appealing. However, in the past I have been quite conservative (this is slowly changing as I get older) in my style, so the idea of mismatching patterns is somewhat daunting. Nevertheless my mismatched fashion has started and I am slowly getting the courage to express myself through sometimes very unconservative┬ápieces. I’m loving it and I am having a lot of fun exploring this new element to my style.
