Everyone goes crazy for the East Village. Well, I hate to go all negative Nancy on you, but I wasn’t feeling it. It’s a great place for bars and hip restaurants if that’s what you’re into, but it’s quite loud and doesn’t feel as safe. I was running around the area looking for a store that could sell me a bottle of water, and every convenience store had a “$10 minimum purchase” rule if you only had a credit card. Um, so what the hell was I to do? Buy 10 water bottles? I mean I could have… but like, no. So I just died of thirst until I met up with my Skype ladies for dinner.
On this last day in NYC I shot with the lovely Federica, who I met last NYFW in the midst of snowstorms and multiple sufferings of the flu (blame Balenciaga cut-out boots). You know what falls into cut outs? Snow. And you know what snow in boots mean? Illness.
This time we were dealing with a polar opposite- it was blazing hot so I finally got to wear my new Alexis romper that I found on one of my favourite department stores, Neiman Marcus. I remember when I was graduating High School and looking for a prom dress, I would practically live on the Neiman Marcus “dress” section, dreaming of all the embellished and sequinned dresses. This collaboration is the gift that keeps on giving, because I swear I got complimented on the romper on every block. I had people literally stare at me as I walked past them, and then had them chase me down and ask me where I got my romper. Maybe it’s the romper, maybe New Yorkers are just the nicest people ever, maybe they just get me? I don’t know- but either way I’m dying for NYFW to come faster so I can come back “home”.

    It’s YOU in the ROMPER! It’s just amaaaaaze! If I was in NYC I’m pretty sure I’d come to you as well, after staring for like 10min, to ask about the romper and of course a photo with you 😀
    And you’re not being a negative Nancy at all, you’re just giving your opinion in the Sonya-way. That is what we like about you! You’re not someone who just follows the crowd, you do your own thing. & if you follow the crowd with a trend/opinion/whatever, it is because you like it and for your personal reasons, not because of the crowd!
    I adore how you have your opinion about everything and aren’t afraid of saying it. You’re a girl with both feet on the ground and who’s standing in her own shoes. At least, that is how it looks like :)
    PS : $10 minimum purchase, really?!?!

    I can’t believe there’s a $10 minimum just to purchase something! That’s ridiculous! But anywho,that romper is amazing! I love the mixed textures from the romper and hat. The boots are a perfect match for the romper as well!

    hhhaahhhhaahha yep that’s the LES! Once went to edie and the wolf on a hot summer noon! there are no subway lines in the neighborhood so we took a cab. Unfortunately, edie and the wolf was closed at noon! there we were with no map! It was about 40°C and the streets were deserted, we walked and and walked and finally made it to rivington a familiar place. But the area is safe, went there after dark too and the place is buzzing! 20 years ago alphabet city wasn’t safe, but now it is, okay it is grungy and okay it is the hipster place to be, but at least you can discover some true gems

    I don’t know why I’ve never come across you blog before – your quite the catch. Love the romper you’re wearing here, and you definitely deserve to be complimented for it! It’s gorgeous and it’s yellow (my favorite color EVER). The fact that you styled it with boots and a hat make it even better.

    You know, sometimes you just need to experience things first-hand to see what the hype is about. I (along with your readers) appreciate your honesty about East Village. Sometimes things can be overrated! Anyways, keep up the brilliant work. x

    Соня, привет:) Ты мой кумир! Я уже давно не ем мясо, у меня отвращение от этой пищи! я ем фрукты, овощи! Мне нравится чувство свежести в организме!
    Но к сожалению, некоторые люди меня не понимают, они сами едят мясо, убивая при этом безобидных животных, им меня не понять, меня не понимают мои друзья, одноклассники и даже родители, но нсли меня и вправду рвет от мяса и я не могу его есть! Новерно, только ты и веганы поймут меня! Это ужасное чувство когда тебя не понимают(

    Lovely pictures! Lovely outfit! I would say this outfit reminds me of Italy. I don’t know why. But these boots add a little bit of the New York chic.I call it …a creative approach to the selection of clothing.
