Favo ~ The Not So Pretty Side Of New York..

~Klik hier voor Nederlands~

I want to be a part of it.. New York, New York! is Frank Sinatra’s message ever since 1980 (or 1978, opinions differ). And don’t we all just wanna be?

Partly thanks to the not-so-subtle promotion by Carrie Bradshaw in Sex And The City, New York is on many fashionista’s to-visit-list. The New York Ladies-style is an inspiration to women all over the world and a real contender to the Parisienne and her easy-breezy-look. But before you pack your bags and leave for The Big Apple you might want to know this..

#1
The New York subway smell is far from pleasant. No matter how much Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf you spray..

#2
Besides the wow-effect of Sky High Heels they have a practical side; the streets of NY are dirty. You will inevitably end up with black soles at the end of the day when wearing flat sandals.

#3
Meatpacking District and West Village may be hotspots, they are absolute Not-Spots for wearing high heels. Cobblestones + Heels = Not A Match Made In Heaven.

#4
Strappy Sandals won’t last longer than one season. Sadly, Carrie Bradshaw’s Happy Shoe Closet is not totally based on reality.

#5
The moment you really can’t walk any further in your heels will be the moment the city runs out of good old Yellow Cabs.

#6
Marilyn Monroe and her stirred up skirt have reached the iconic status. When you are caught on a subway ventilator, you will not be that gracious. Not Even Close.

#7
During the summer your hair frizzes up, like 5 times what it normally looks like. And your make-up will melt, like 5 times faster. Life isn’t fair.

#8
During the cold winters the sidewalk becomes a real deathtrap. The 6 inch heels you subbornly keep wearing also won’t help.

 

 But still.. Gotta Love This City
