Tiffany and the City: Adventures of a Fat Shopaholic. The New naKiMuli Studio!

Thursday, September 9, 2010

Today I went to DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Over Pass) to visit the new naKilMuli studio and have champagne (I brought Moscato though) in honor of securing the new space. It most certainly was a interesting trip. I was having a bad day and got some really bad news. In the mist of crying and trying to sort things out I was trying to get ready to go to DUMBO because I thought the festivities were from 5 - 7 p.m. After finally getting dressed and out the door then attempting to navigate my way around downtown Brooklyn I made it to the studio only to find out the shindig was from 7 - 9 p.m., so I was right on time!

The studio was huge and in a great building; Tennille has a lot planned for it and I can't wait to see the out come.

Here is what I wore. I shredded this Asos tee with see thru panels because it was stained beyond wear and I  thought with the shreds it would look cool and the stains wouldn't show up. I paired the tee with a mens plaid shirt I found at the Salvation Army for half off on Monday. It's a mens tall 4x, so it's long and baggy which I like. The skirt is a Torrid peplum skirt I had to alter because I lost weight. I like the idea of this skirt, but not the execution. The peplum doesn't flare out, so its not noticeable and the skirt kept riding up, but in the end I actually liked the bike shorts being visible; I think it played well off of the sheerness of the tights.

The pin on my vest has been there since I purchased it. The guy on 82nd street said he got it from a old Russia lady that wore it in the 20's. Lie or truth it is my favorite vintage pin. Finally the head wrap is a Erica belt (this style isn't available online yet) reminiscent of the American Apparel sashes I haven't worn in a while. I saw Tennille wear this as a belt on Facebook and asked could she make me one and she said sure! So happy with it! Oh and these Avenue sheers were very comfortable, but fell apart after one wear. No Dice!!
