I have two days left in Brooklyn before I have to pack up and head back to school in Southern California. At this point, I'm basically crying myself to sleep every night- I'm going to miss the city so much.
My best find of the summer has definitely been Artists and Fleas. Saturday and Sunday, artists bring their jewelry, clothes and accessories to an warehouse on 6th Street between Bedford Ave and Berry.
I went on Saturday for my last time and bought the best thing yet. I bought an electric blue, jaguar printed jumpsuit from the Hot Trash Vintage booth. It is incredible- photos to come.
If you are in New York now, or on your next trip you really should go. http://artistsandfleas.com/
Below, a picture of a Turkish metal belt from the 40's. I wanted it to be mine, but alas I had already spent my paycheck on Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
With just a little over two weeks left in New York, I have realized just how much I will miss Brooklyn. I finally have a work schedule that allows me to actually go out and enjoy this intricate and beautiful place where I have spent my summer.
My friend and I just started doing bikram yoga at Bikram Yoga South Slope. It is incredible. I feel more energetic and altogether healthier and happier. However, the BEST part about doing bikram yoga is how soft and clear your skin becomes. Seriously, my skin is luminescent.
If you are in the New York area I highly recommend checking it out... bikramyogasouthslope.com
I almost wish Jeffrey Campbell didn't show us all their newest look-book until a week before the shoes hit retail stores, because I can not wait four to ten weeks for these wedges. Lusting after them. Needless to say all the other shoes are just as incredible.

I visited some friends and my old house in Seattle last week. Seattle in the summer is amazing, I already miss it. I went to my favourite boutique Aritzia, and bought so many great pieces. I'll eventually post photos.
My friend took this photo and it really just encapsulates everything I love about Seattle.
Love all of LF's shoes. I've been lusting after Seychelles' Gallium boot for awhile (Number 2 shown above). I get my next paycheck tomorrow and am trying to decide between those and Jeffrey Campbell's Acme boot... I'm leaning towards Jeffrey Campbell...
