4th of July, 2012!

There are just 10 teeeeeeeny sleeps until we leave the cold of Australia and return to the amazingness that is New York City for the THIRD time! I seriously can't believe I have been twice already let alone preparing for the third trip. I feel quite snooty actually when I tell people that I have been twice before but trust me when I say that E.V.E.R.Y spare penny goes in to the savings account to get me there, lol. This year we are super excited to be attending some Full Figured Fashion events as well as seeing our beautiful New Yorker friends!

This has me remincing about last year's trip and about how much I haven't blogged about it! Sooooooo say hello to my 4th of July afternoon at the African Arts Festival in Brooklyn!

It was soooooo hot in the afternoon as we made our way to Brooklyn on the subway. We were greeted by our fab Trinni sissy Candice who had a cab waiting and then headed to the festival. Cue a sea of vibrant colours, fly, organic style, delicious food, live music, giant lemonades and intense heat! It was the most amazing sight! The eyeballs went gaga. We were invited by our newly found sisters Gabby and Candice to go watch Gabby dance at the festival and so glad we was a complete visual treat and we loved every minute. Here, have a look...

What I wore:

  • Floral blazer did NOT last long in the heat)- thrifted, $3
  • Oversized black cotton top- Kmart $5
  • Blue tube skirt- Kmart $10
  • Beach comber canvas shoes- thrifted, $5
  • Clip on earrings- thrifted $3

10 sleeps, 10 sleeps, 10 sleeps...

I can't wait!

Big love xx
