Having previously fallen in love with the The Big Apple; I always knew I’d be back. Back to the glamour, glory, fortune and fame…Not! Well not for me anyway (not yet). Just back to the sites, shops and skylines! Ironically, with that said, as much as I was looking up; as usual; I was capturing the “View from the Top”, and focusing down. Before VFTT 109, there has been a lot more exotic, rural and tropical shots, so I figured it was time to break it up a bit, to get back to the city and to momentarily replace mother nature . What better place to start, than the concrete jungle itself?

Since I’ve already been the clichè NY tourist; I took a step back this time and saw more of New york for what it is. Staying in Brooklyn’s finest and yet so typical Brownstone apartments, I felt like I was home. Granted, it was a short (but sweet) trip, there was something about not staying in a hotel in the centre of Midtown, that opened my eyes and made me want to go back for than just a visit. I could avoid the crazy, jam-packed city that never sleeps, yet still enjoy the “New York vibe”.  Having strolled through a couple of parks and the Botanical gardens, I could quite literally stop and smell the roses. Minus the Subway system (to which I won’t rant on about), I still love New York. Therefore, yet again; I’ll be back! #WatchThis Space

On a recent trip to the Big Apple, I realised how much I love that city and now all i want to do is go back. If not for the shopping, fabulous fashion and glamorous lifestyle then take me back to the buzz in Time Square, Brooklyn’s finest restaurants, the unique finds of Soho, and the city’s character through, art and culture! This trip also hit a harsh reality; discovering all the Beautiful bags and shoes I yearn for but can not afford YET! Admittedly watching the ‘Sex and the City’ box set is not helping, nor is the constant flicking through my photos; But hey, whats a girl to do, but dream?

Anyways here is a well overdue, overview of Seventh Ave’s “Shoe Obsession” exhibition at New York City’s Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). If I can’t have fabulous footwear (Minus my Louboutins), then I’ll just look!

So we were not exactly allowed to take photos, but i got a couple of sneaky pics 🙂

“Shoe Obsession is not a new phenomenon. But over the past decade, extraordinary designer shoes with extremely high heels have become increasingly central to fashion. Why are we so obsessed with shoes? and why are shoes so important now?”
