'Vintage Inspired Fashion In New York City'

Vintage inspired Rowantree pieces, featured in the independent designer fashion week
 in Brooklyn, New York City.







Sadly to say that tomorrow is my last day here in this wonderful, arty, bustling, edgy, imposing and energising city and the sailor and I have a date in Central Park, fingers crossed he packs a picnic lunch and takes me rowing.   I have had such a busy time, how quickly ten days fly past you when you are having one of the times of your life.  I have so much I want to tell you, so many great restaurants to recommend, so many shops for you to put on your list...........and of course some cheeky, little late night bars we found along the way.  But I always know when it's time to go home, I start to cuddle other people's children and dogs, stand around too long in children's fashion shops, tell the cafe staff what's wrong with their coffee and the major tell tale is when I walk past a Lucky Brand and not go in!

Meet Norybah, one of my blogger friends, can you believe we were at my favourite pizza  restaurant in Brooklyn one day apart, imagine the fun we would have had if we had met!  I really want to you to pop on over here and fall in love with these beauties.

Ladies the postcards are on the way.  Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement on my New York blog posts.  I get it that some of you love nautical as much as I, so watch this space as I will be looking out for things we both love.  See you soon!

  3. I'm kinda sad your stay is almost over - I've really enjoyed looking at things with your personal spin on them. I almost wish I'd signed up for a post card! ;)
    Hope you have a good flight home.

  4. P.S Love the clothes in the first and third photos particularly - The shirt is scrumptious, and that little orange dress is grogeous! If I'd been blessed with a daughter - I would have HAD to order it!

  9. HI Roberta,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your fashions are amazing and your fibro beach shack is just lovely. Just by coincidence I have a similar lounge chair covered in Ici et La fabric.
