Perhaps my favorite NYC purchase/discovery was a beautiful shirt from the New York based label A Détacher. Here are a few images from their S/S 2009 runway show, to give you an idea of the amazingness that awaited me when I happened into their shop on Mott Street (262 Mott Street, to be exact).
The store was equally awesome– I would have bought EVERYTHING there if I could:
I did walk away with the most gorgeous shirt– I don’t think pictures do justice to its ingenius draping!
I can’t wait to wear it all different ways (including with a wide belt like it was shown 0n the runway):
A Détacher top worn with vintage Levi’s cutoffs (another NYC find), Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Vince cardigan….
And with that [badly taken picture of the Manhattan skyline from my taxicab window], it’s goodbye spring break, hello HIGH SCHOOL. YUCK.
