frolicking in greenpoint & fred flare


i'm mildly obsessed with reading nymag everyday, just to see what sample sales are up and around. after i read about the fred flare sample sale and browsed their quirky website, i knew i had to give it a go...plus a good reason to trek across to brooklyn! it was supposed to rain so i wore my mens' windbreaker hoodie which is ridiculously comfortable and this forest green printed shirt. pretty hobo-worthy i know, but so comfy and good for walking. chose my chunky clunky black boots (mens) for no other reason than to simply keep my feet dry (i hate hate hate rain and wet feet but it ended up barely sprinkling anyway) threw on some f21 rings and was dressed in less than 4 minutes. good stuff.

ended up getting a tiny perfume bottle, sprinkles ring (had to, won't wear it but its rainbow fabulousness was too alluring for someone stuck in forever fantasies of rainbowland), green stone? ring, and a diamond contraption that photographs incredibly. included a bunch of pictures of trinkets and collectors' items, would have gotten those headphones in the last photo but seeing as i've put 4 pairs to death in the past year....thought i'd spare a life or two. also did i mention, coolest cookware ever? not only adorable but entirely functional... these baking cups (silicone) that are non-stick, decorative in themselves and just perfect. they were a little pricey so i'll be hunting for some online soon. all in all a good adventure for a faux-rainy day.
