NYC Highlights

Some of my most memorable moments from NY include:

* Browsing the makeup at both H&M and Topshop, and being told by a sales clerk at H&M that MAC makes their makeup. (I'm not sure if this is true, but the four H&M lip glosses that I bought smell delighful, and have that shiny-but-not-too-sticky consistency that's often hard to find.)

* Spotted two rats in the 33rd St. subway station. I wasn't expecting to see any, and I wish I could've grabbed my camera in time to catch them scurrying away from the tracks.

* Amidst the lunchtime crowds in Union Square, this fearless squirrel caught my eye.


* Shopping the vast selection of vintage clothing and accessories at Beacon's Closet.

* Four things I noticed about Williamsburg: lots of bikes, dogs, graffiti, and trash in the streets. In fact, I observed a young woman carelessly dump her water bottle in the gutter right before getting into a minivan.


Other memorable moments:
* Browsing temporary tattoos, colored wigs, and endless hair products at Ricky's
* Seeing the grunge-chic employees at AllSaints and playing on the iPads in the store
* Watching a street style photographer finish up a photoshoot with two models on the Lower East Side
* Admiring the well organized racks of vintage floral jumpsuits, maxi dresses, and feminine blouses at Screaming Mimi's
* Stocking up on international fashion magazines at the Lafayette Smoke Shop and Universal News
* Accidentally discovering a street fair along Lexington and buying a tamale for $10
* Touring a tenement on the Lower East Side where thousands of immigrants lived and worked in the early late 19th and early 20th century
* Watching Memphis the musical and admiring the glittery costumes, intricate set design, and talented cast
