[ on new york time ]

New York was hot today in every sense of the word, especially temperature wise. Parades, horses, fake Louis Vuitton bags…you know, everyday stuff. By the time mom and I finished exploring, our feet felt ready to fall off and the idea of posing for another picture evoked a mild allergic reaction. On the whole, our day in New York was a “great success,” despite a horrible map and an unexpected bill of $26 for two glasses of draft beer (Rink Bar at the Rockefeller Center). We did manage to find a restaurant with super spicy food, which I love. Ever since we discovered Khmer Thai Restaurant in Toronto, with their insanely spicy-delicious Cambodian soup, I’ve been a huge fan of spicy everything. I now crave a new approach to spiciness where ever I go. Today New York satisfied my cravings to the point where I couldn’t stop drinking water for half an hour; hot, hot, hot!

What I’m wearing:

  • Silk blouse by “Milly”
  • Pumps by “Nicole Brundage”
  • Vintage skirt
  • Bra by “Sonia Rykiel for H&M”
  • Crystal nepal ceylan topaz ring by “Swarovski”
  • Clip-on earrings by “Alexis Bittar”
  • Sunglasses by “Missoni”
  • Vintage inspired leather bag by “Etienne Aigner”

  1. Goodness you are brave walking New York in pumps. You look hot in that silk blouse and mini skirt. Great ring! Swarovski is my new love nowadays. Just got a few items, such as a snake bangle and a ring. Love their design. Will definitely blog them soon. BTW, you just got yourself an online blogger buddy who happens to LOVE spicy food too. If you ever come and visit Boston, I will surely recommend some good restaurants to satisfy your appetite.

    1. Vicky you are such a cuttie. It seems like we have some things in common – love for spicy food and swarovski. I would definitely like to know what those restaurants are when I come down to Boston, because you know how long it usually takes to finally find the good ones. BTW, to be honest, I didn't walk in those heels the whole time. I had a pair of flip flops in my purse so I would alternate whenever heels got to me.
      Love Lida

  2. I love this outfit but I think you're VERY brave to wear heels while walking around New York. I'm also jealous that you're in NYC right now, and I'm stuck in Toronto where it's crazily hot.

    I'm a big fan of your blog–and I love to see some of the local spots that I photograph in as well. Keep on-a-postin'!

  3. It is not just only the wheather, the pictures are hot as hell! Thanks for sharing them wih us.
    It is a pity that I just change planes tomorrow in NY and don't have time to walk the city.

  4. Love this outfit. I'm heading to Manhattan again in August for the third time. Any good restaurant suggestions? We had brunch at Pastis last time and I loved it.

    1. Pastis?…I'm going to try it next time. I can't say that I found any restaurants yet that I would definitely recommend in New York. The places I've eaten at were good but nothing earth shattering, to be honest. I have some amazing suggestions for Montreal restaurants and if you ever decide to go there let me know. You must be excited about your upcoming trip though? I hope to go to Manhattan again before the end of the summer 🙂

    1. Oh I know your blog and I LOVE it. I would definitely like to exchange links and I will try to add yours within the next few days. I'm in LA right now and my friend keeps bugging me about going the beach…

  5. I love the collar detail on this blouse. You look so chic with your lingerie showing through. I've never had the balls to try this in real life, but I love the look!! Hope you're enjoying New York (how could you not)! xo

    1. Thanks Becca. New York was super cool, as usual. Like most people, I'm crazy about that city. You know what…for the longest time I had a pretty strong aversion to even abstracted display of undergarments but I now feel that, if the bra is opaque enough, it really can work with some sheer blouses and tops (especially when it's vintage inspired). I feel that somehow vintage inspired lingerie is generally less sexy and revealing than the more current stuff.

  6. So my best friend and I decided on Sunday morning that we wanted to go to NYC for the day. We hopped in the car and 2 hours later we parked and breathed in a lil city air. We just left the parking garage and were walking down 5th Avenue when I saw this gorgeous girl in a black skirt and pink shirt (my fav color combo) getting her picture taken as she walked across the street. I said to my friend- “how fun! I wonder if she is a blogger?” Flash Forward to today when I stumble upon your blog and there is the girl I saw in NYC! I wish I would have been a fan sooner because I would have loved to have met you. I'm a fan now 🙂 Love your blog and love your style. So glad you had fun in NYC!
