When I was in New York this past Spring I became very well acquainted with Chinatown, where I was living. Throughout my time there, it was really cool to be able to explore the neighborhood more, since I hadn't really taken advantage of it on my previous stays in the city. The extent of variety from neighborhood to neighborhood in New York, and the unique feeling and experience each of them brings is so exhilarating. The amount of diversity and culture packed into this one little island is what makes it so incredibly special.
These were snapped quickly outside my apartment on the way to brunch one weekend. I know what you're thinking, I know what I'm thinking, an all white look in New York City is one bold move, but luckily no cabs ran through gross puddles and splashed me curbside à la Mary-Kate in New York Minute. A lucky break, if you will.
Anyway, about what I'm wearing... I have always considered white jeans as a no-go for me. But lo and behold, I just hadn't found the right pair. After lucking up on these high-waisted, wide leg pair from Re/Done during their holiday sale last winter, I am now a believer in the white jean. The stiff Levi's denim really helps them hold their shape, too, which thankfully doesn't make you feel like you just squeezed yourself in a bright white sausage casing. A look I don't find myself particularly fond of, and the sole source of my resistance to white jeans for so long. Anyway, this is the story of how we went from foe to friend. Thanks for listening.
