“You’re in the midst of a war: a battle between the limits of a crowd seeking the surrender of your dreams, and the power of your true vision to create and contribute. It is a fight between those who will tell you what you cannot do, and that part of you that knows / and has always known / that we are more than our environment; and that a dream, backed by an unrelenting will to attain it, is truly a reality with an imminent arrival.” -Tony Robbins
Those of you who follow my instagram probably know I’ve been obsessing over the brand ONLY NY. Klaerizm put me on a while back and since then been hooked. I was highly anticipating their store opening that was unfortunately pushed back due to Hurricane Sandy. Either way, they’re open now at 176 Stanton Street. I, of course, went and checked it out. The store is so welcoming, which I don’t say often about shops. I’m a fan of the entire layout, the way their items are set up and especially how the owner Micah’s artwork is displayed on the wall. Everything about the store is everything…if that makes sense to you guys. I made the tank top into a crop top because it was how I envisioned me wearing it in the first place. Everyone knows I usually end up reconstructing pieces anyway. My pointy silver heels are from shoemint and sort of remind me of the mirror leather Jimmy Choo’s. My skirt, which was once a peplum dress, is from boohoo.com.
