The trenchcoat I made is too big for me but I still wear it 
I’m headed to Norway in a few days and in the meanwhile I’m enjoying the sun and NYC.. and also working on a new project!

I’m going to remove the NY guide I made after living her for a few months. I thought I’d make a new, shorter one with only my top favourites instead now that I’ve lived here for almost 3 years.

This place, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, will be included as one of my fav shops to visit (the rare times I do go “shopping”/browsing.) I really like the selections of designers and products, and I would also like to own every pair of her shoes from her own label.

There is Bronx and then there is Brooklyn Botanical Garden as well. They’re both worth a visit!
I missed out on the blossoming cherry trees, but with or without, it is one of my favorite places in NY <3

uniqlo and lemaire

I haven’t been excited about a designer collaboration for a long, long time but uniqlo and lemaire definitely has my attention.

“Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran commented, “The UNIQLO AND LEMAIRE collection is based on the philosophy shared by both UNIQLO and LEMAIRE of making high-quality clothing for everyday life. We focused not simply on enhancing design, but insisting on high quality in the materials as well, with the aim of creating clothing that is simple, beautiful and comfortable.”

Looking forward to this :)
