SoHo Details


This past weekend, my dad and I ventured up to New York for his 30th college reunion. He actually went to college in Connecticut, but I was promised a shopping day in NYC if I joined him. I, of course, couldn’t pass up a shopping trip in NYC with my dad. I mean come on, how could anyone pass that up? 


We were only there for the afternoon and decided to stay in the SoHo area. It was sweltering hot, and my dad isn’t much of a shopper so, under the circumstances, we didn’t do that much shopping. I ended up only buying two tee shirts, but I also ended up with a fun snap story. 

When SnapChat first came out I didn’t really understand what the hype was about. You take pictures and your friends can see them for like five seconds? “Big deal, Instagram is cooler,” I naively thought. But it has since grown on me. I really enjoy the idea of a temporary representation of yourself. A little mini photo diary that can change and evolve and is temporary. There’s something magical about the temporariness of SnapChat that I love. 

So anyway, I decided to take photos of cool or cute little things that I saw throughout the day. It started unplanned, but it evolved into this artsy little photo diary of my day. I got a lot of compliments on the photos so I thought I’d share them with you. Obviously, this takes away form the temporary aspect that I like so much, but they’re pretty pictures so pishposh. 

If you ever find yourself in SoHo I totally recommend the Clare V. store and the Sleepy Jones store. You’ll love them.
