“New York is the thing that seduced me // Nueva York es lo que me sedujo.

New York is the thing that formed me // Nueva York es lo que me formó.

New York is the thing that deformed me // Nueva York es lo que me deformó.

New York is the thing that perverted me // Nueva York es lo que me pervirtió.

New York is the thing that converted me // Nueva York es lo que me convirtió.

… and New York is the thing I love too // … y Nueva York es también lo que amo.

Yeah, that’s my little prayer for New York // Si, esa es mi pequeña oración para Nueva York.”

– Patty Smith.

Today’s look was shot around the Meatpacking District and in the Highline. Florals on florals? Why not? You saw these shorts here, but I wanted them to try them in a more colorful way. Do you think I achieved it? BTW, did you know if you click on the lines of the poem above the links will take you to my old New-York-City inspired looks?


Top and shorts, Topshop.

Shoes and sunglasses, Aldo.

Belt, MOA (France).

Ring, JC Penney.

Bangles, present from my friend Adriana (Saudi Arabia).
