SCORE! Pop-Up Swap

Fashion Evolutionist

SCORE! Pop-Up Swap is a recurring swap meet where everyone is invited to bring items they no longer want and in turn can take whatever treasures they find. For only a small entrance fee of $3-$5, you can take as much as you can carry, a great deal for the financially challenged, like myself. The array of people donating added to the range of departments offered, resulting in a multitude of amazing items up for grab. Though I was mainly interested in their clothing and shoe sections, SCORE! also includes books, music, electronics, arts & crafts and housewares.

Tweed Cycling Fashion

Fashion in Airports

Last Sunday marked the first official Big Apple Tweed — New York City’s inaugural tweed bicycle ride. Cyclists from as far as Harlem and Washington DC came together dressed in their tweed-inspired Sunday best. We met in Grand Army Plaza before embarking on our tour of Park Slope and Fort Greene. The ride culminated with a free buffet brunch at the lovely French-Moroccan bistro Kif.

I have always loved playing around with fashion. When I was seven, I was mixing tie-dyed tees with neon pants and have continued to experiment with clothes, trying all different types of styles. They range from Boho to retro to edgy; the possibilities of creating different looks and images are endless! Moving to New York City about nine months ago, I was overjoyed to discover that it is not only a melting pot of culture but of fashion as well. The diversity of this city is extremely exciting; the varieties of looks you can see on just one block are so vast! I feel that New Yorkers get inspired by one another as well as the assortment of styles found here. I think it’s impossible not to! That is definitely one thing that has made me fall in love with my new home.

Fashion in Airports

“The creative person looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport.” -Robert Wieder Whether I’m at JFK or in SoHo, I seek fashion that challenges and inspires me. From the low to the high, I am interested in fashion that tells an interesting story about the City. Whether it’s a vintage fur mink from a clothing swap, a pair of sneakers from a skate shop, or the shape of someone’s eye brows, what’s important is the sensibility and statement that the object or person expresses.
