something borrowed

08-08-2011
vintage sweatshirt from Painted Bird, Citizens of Humanity jeggings, Gap men's parka, Karen Walker sunglasses, Rachel Comey Miner boots

Someone asked me the other day why I stopped wearing this parka... THIS is why. I remember trying to convince him to add a parka to his wardrobe but he was skeptical about pulling it off and wouldn't listen to me. I found this in the men's section at Gap a few months ago, bought it for myself, and sold the parka I used to have thinking that I'd found a good replacement. Ahh well, it fits him better anyway! I'm still looking for an olive green parka though. I almost bought one from A.P.C. that I blogged about here but it sold out! Bummer. Has anyone seen any good ones out there?

Anyway, I have BIG news to share...

I'm going to New York next month!

Did I ever mention that I've never been to the East Coast? Weird travel phobia, I guess. I've never really cared about going but I figured I'd finally plan a trip out there since a few of my friends are going. I'm not sure how many Fashion Week related activities I'll be participating in but we'll see. I haven't really thought about that, I'm more excited about going on an actual vacation! Is anyone else going? I'll be there September 8th-13th!

lucky you travelling to the big apple during fashion week. even if you won't be participating in any of it, it'll still be neat to say you were there for that week. i really love that parka too, but i always love men's clothes more. i have a green cargo jacket from macy's that's roxy branded. it doesn't look like roxy on the outside but it has the symbol on the inner lining. it's a great parka, it has a massive hood. but no pockets. so, in short, check out roxy's jackets. :)

I just came back from New York! It was fantastic. You must line up for ramen at Ippuro. It's about a 2 hour wait but their pork buns are MOUTHWATERING. Also the MET is a must! Admission is actually by donation so ignore the suggested price and pay what you want.

A got a great one from Maje a couple of weeks ago! Amazingly soft and hangs perfectly

I just moved from Brooklyn over to LA! Go to Pommes Frites in the East Village!! You will be in love with it, promise. One of my favorite New York memories is sitting in the train station eating fries out of a paper cone dipping in war sauce ahhh soooo good! :]

anna rachael pang said...

cool, I'll be in NY during that time! well I'm actually moving there for school (I'm from Canada)! I find that new york can be a bit overwhelming and busy but I guess if you avoid Times Square, then you won't feel that way. Anyway, enjoy your trip! :)

Dom said...

You're so cute. I for one think that parka looks really great on you. I know that H&M were selling some ones similar to the one you're wearing. Though they came in multiple colors, I don't think it came in olive green.

Charline said...

You are so lucky to go to NYC! Have fun :)

I just returned from New York, now in LA at the moment and I'll be heading to SF in a few days! New York is so beautiful, you should definitely check out Brooklyn and (since you're as much a food-lover as I am) the foodmarket close to Pier 17, downtown Manhattan. No idea when that market is actually there, but it's GOOD! The food is so fresh, so delicious. The pork filled taco/wrap things are definitely worth trying, they are one of the best things I've ever eaten. You're gonna love NY!

Love, Lisa

I've never been to NY either, but my mom has and she said it was awesome. I definitely think you will love it. I would love to go there someday and see where John Lennon lived. Have fun on your trip. Oh...and I also love your boots. I use to have a pair similar in the 90's, I believe they were Timberlands though, lol.

check out the j.crew men's store for green parkas - i bought one that's very similar to the gap one you're wearing. Not sure if they're still selling it, but they are still selling similar styles

This is a little late, but as far as green parkas go I'm really digging the brand Penfield:

The selection is a little slim right now, but there will probably be more come fall...
