Hi.

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

Solstice Hijinks

Solstice Hijinks

Keeping in this week's theme of vodka-sponsored bashes, I wanted to share a few photos from last month's Reyka Summer Solstice cocktail party, held atop Williamsburg's stylish King & Grove Hotel. It was a perfect rooftop event--plenty of free flowing libations, beautiful sunset views of the NYC skyline and lots of photo booth fun.

Feeling festive, I decided to debut my yellow and black patterned maxi ($15) from the Ladakh sample sale. I had trouble choosing a shirt or tank, however, so I ended up creating a makeshift tube top out of an old American Apparel mini skirt ($32) that I hadn't worn in ages. Pro tip: Clothing doesn't always need to be worn the way it's supposed to--I've repurposed many a skirt into a belted dress or top in a pinch. I finished off the look with an industrial-style necklace ($10) from Buffalo Exchange and a gifted Michael Kors clutch, bringing the outfit total to $57, and $77 with shoes.

Upon arrival, I realized I had apparently dressed to match the party's Big Bird-inspired yellow art installation, created by Icelandic-born artist Hrafnhildur Arnardottir (aka Shoplifter). You can check out more of his colorful and very hairy work here.
