Oh I've been gone since Wednesday.....now I'm back.
You know, summers in NYC can keep a girl busy.
Such as, my bike ride on Saturday.
(I finally got my free bike fixed up and ready to go)
*Note: I did not wear a practical bike-riding outfit, then again--I'm not a practical kinda gal.
I do not intend to stunt my height by wearing flats just because I'm bike riding--I gotta keep up my taller than 5'6" appearance or else the jig is up!
*Beige chiffon floral print dress-Forever 21
*Old skinny jeans-Uniqlo
*Brown booties-Steve Madden
*Navy embroidered vintage purse-Beachland Ballroom's vintage store (Cleveland)
*multiple neclaces-Thrift Store and from a jewelry designer in Soho
We biked to Fort Greene.Hit up the Brooklyn Flea...
To which I tried on too many jewelry pieces, touched every dress, and bought an iced tea.
And out of all the wonderful vintage goodies, I found one.....one that I could not leave behind--
That's right....my love of 80s hairbands, shining through. With musical preferences like mine, how could you pass up this beauty offered at only $20!?!?
(LittleVioletDress.....you might be the only one who appreciates my purchase-as I do remember the first times I read your blog you were wearing a Bon Jovi t-shirt)
Of course, all further pictures included Bon Jovi.
Funniest part of all, was as Mel was taking these photos, a homeless man who had already stopped us once, came back several minutes later.
He proceeded to peer closely at my flea market purchase to which he said,
"Is that the girl from Fleetwood Mac? Oh man, Don't tell me her name....I've got it, I've got it....oh man what's her name?"
And I looked at Mel, and she looked at me, shooting eachother a look of,
"Is this guy serious".
Yes, he was serious.
I said, "You mean Stevie Nicks"
Homeless Man said, "yeah, that's her name."
He proceeded to get even closer, gazing more deeply at it, to which the most classic line of the day spewed from his mouth,
"Man, Stevie Nicks is looking good!"
We did not have the heart to ruin a guy down on his luck, so we left it at that.
How could you tell him that it was not a modern picture, nor was it Stevie Nicks, let alone not even a woman?
The rest of the day was spent eating, enjoying some cocktails, and hanging out with friends.
So you see, I've been busy.....
Ummmmm, busy drinking too many beers to properly ride my bike back home.
I crashed into a street sign late at night.
