Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style and city living. Hope you have a nice stay!

A Taste Of Lace

A Taste Of Lace

Earlier this week, I spent a lunch hour scoping out Madison Square Eats. The mini food fest, which is located on the far west side of Madison Square Park, features food stands from a bunch of NYC faves, including People's Pops, Roberta's and Momofuku Milk Bar, among many, many others.

After maneuvering through the packed crowd and long lines, I decided to try Arancini Bros for the first time. Based out in Bushwick, they offer an oversized and perfectly fried version of the classic Italian rice ball for just $4.

While on this culinary adventure, I wore one of my first-ever thrift finds--the vintage lilac lace skirt ($4) that I purchased back in high school. As you can see, it's held up pretty well over the years, and this time I paired it with the rhinestone-encrusted shift dress from Buffalo Exchange ($1, which I also wore here) and a minimalist belt ($6, NY&Co.). Total look came to $11, and with shoes came to $31. 

If you still want to check out Madison Square Eats, the festival runs through the end of May, from 11am to 9pm daily. But for weekday visitors, I recommend going either early (before 1pm) or later (after 3pm), otherwise the lunchtime lines can get pretty cray!
