Hi.

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

Chambray Sunday

Chambray Sunday

After a busy weekend full of festivities--including a Saturday night wedding in Midtown and an early brunch party at a friend's apartment in Washington Heights--I slipped into some comfy duds for a comedy show Sunday night. Scored at Buffalo Exchange for just $8, my chambray button-up is perfectly soft and worn-in, and I paired it with a some equally-cozy gray jeans ($5.50, last worn here) from St. George's Thrift Shop and a scarf ($0.55) snagged at a recent Housing Works Buy The Bag sale. I finished off the look with a pair of studded loafers ($5, from a street vendor near the Bedford L stop in Brooklyn) and my industrial-style silver and gold necklace ($10, also from Buffalo Exchange). Head-to-toe including shoes, the laid-back weekend outfit came out to just under $30.

Held at Gotham Comedy Club, the show's headliner was Jo Koy, an insanely funny Asian-American comedian who's also currently a regular on Chelsea Lately. (If you haven't seen any of his stand-up, you can check some out in this clip!) It was his final gig in NYC, so we were treated to an extended show full of new material, some 90s R&B sing-a-longs and free merch, and even got a chance to do a meet-and-greet with Koy after the show. Good times!
