What makes you a New Yorker? Do you have to be born in New York? Live here for 10 years? 20 years? Is it a lifestyle, an attitude, or maybe you just need to put on a big parka and stride the streets of New York with confidence.

You know I was secretly so happy when on 3 separate occasions recently that people asked me for directions in New York! Even though I only vaguely helped 1 of them, but still, to appear to be a local is a huge compliment to me. Well, as soon as I open my mouth, they’d know they asked the wrong person, but hey, that 1 I can work on!

So when I saw Dorothy from across the street I knew that this was a New York gal. Something about the way she dressed, the boots, the stride, the coffee in her hand, oh-so-New-Yorker! Well, I stomped across the street with my 3 trillion shopping bags and asked to take her picture. (Ok, 3 shopping bags, but that’s still a handful.)

Sweet winter - Williamsburg

I’m sure you had lost all hope on me, didn’t you? Heh, I knew it! But alas, I’m back after 2 months absence, I am very sorry, but sometimes you just got to concentrate on 1 thing at a time. That 1 thing was traveling for me, for the last 2 months I’ve seen many cities in Europe, the States, Canada, Mexico and Cuba. The amazing cultures in Europe, the energy State side, the nature in Canada, the amazing handcrafts in Mexico and the architecture in Cuba have all inspired me very much and it’ll all feed back into my creative outlets. So… in short, you’ll be enjoying a better blog :p

Right now I am living it up in NYC, that’s right, I got 2 more weeks here and hope to do a lot more style hunting, though I gotta say, this ain’t easy work in the bitter cold winds… nah uh! But someone’s got to do the job. Today I took a stroll in Williamburg and look whom I found! I love her hat, her shoes and the 3 nude shaded items popping the whole outfit. Liking it!

Name: Pia
Occupation: Apprentice stylist (Cristiano Cora Studio)
Describe your style: Feminine, a little scruffy and sci fi.
Favourite fashion label: Chanel couture, Miss Sixty and vintage Givenchy.
Favourite clothing shop: Beacon’s Closet and other shops in Williamsburg.

Speaking of Beacon’s Closet, I went there today, wow! So much treasure here, it was towards the end of my day and I just couldn’t be bothered to look through the huge amount of clothes. However, I did come away with a mint Coach trench long cape for a steal at $65, holy moly! I think I love Williamburg now. Oh you know, I only bought another skirt, vest and 2 pairs of shoes there today.
