American Graffiti – New York City

Lush cutout dip hem top, Topshop leopard belt, Madison Marcus silk cargo pants, Tory Burch patent flats

Been in NYC for the past week, having a blast = totally neglecting blog. Oops, but here are some pics we snapped while walking off crab pork soup dumplings from Joe’s Shanghai when we came across this condemned building. I liked how even though it’s defaced, the graffiti gives this urban architecture a gritty and eerily desolate feel in a neighborhood that’s mixed with old and new, showing the contrast of the city. Cool enough that I withstood the pee smell on the steps to get some shots.

Anyway, I’ve been wanting the perfect pair of cargo pants for the past few months but never liked any enough to commit until I came across this Madison Marcus pair that girlifies (this word wouldn’t fly in Scrabble) the typical utility cargo. The silk and paper bag waist make it easier to dress up even though cargoes are usually casual. Switched out the standard belt it came with for a leopard one I picked up from Topshop.
