Damn right I love the life I live, 'cause I went from negative to positive. -Notorious B.I.G.
I will admit that New York (on a student budget) is not as glam as Sex & The City, but it is still everything I imagined and more. Every block, gritty and unkempt as they may be, inspires me. Even the piles of garbage on the sidewalk can look beautiful, which brings me to this post...
We (boo and I) were going on a Pepsi run to the bodega, and he pointed out how dope my skirt would look against the mural-in-progress on the wall. I didn't think my outfit was picture worthy, but he took a few anyway and I love them. We weren't going anywhere, so I had on an experimental pink and purple ombre lip, a basic cropped racer back, my favorite skirt (I got it last year from Nasty Gal), and my Aldo sandals.
How did I almost miss an opportunity to shoot this?! Sometimes, I forget how lucky I am to be living my childhood dreams. I have to stop and remind myself that even in my watermelon skirt and sandals, I'm still strutting those glittering sidewalks of Gotham. Life is good. And if you don't know, now you know.
