Backless top, ASOS; Scarf, H&M; Cheapie jeans that kept falling off my ass, New Look; Zipper bag, BYSI; $10 worn-to-death polka dotted flats, some market in Australia. And Raybans, of course - never leave home without your Raybans.

In New York, I stayed in an apartment in Harlem that was a few doors away from a fire station. My friend Maria, was gleeful every time we had to pass by the station because she wanted to take a photo with authentic New York firefighters. I, on the other hand, was fascinated with the red brick walls.

Seriously, how cool does being in front of a brick wall make me look?!

P.S.: Yes, Maria did finally take a photo with firefighters. Tsk, tourists. ;o)
