This is the outfit I wore for the 4th of July here in NYC. I know it’s not very American, but I had just been dying to wear this particular outfit! Most of what I am wearing, I got here in NYC -in markets, etc. The vintage floral waistcoat is one of my favorite finds so far. I got it for $10 at the Brooklyn Flea Market in Williamsburg a few weeks ago. Bargain or what? The Levi’s shorts are from The Vintage Twin Pop-up-shop I went to last week. The girl who owned the store was so so nice & she added all the tears on the shorts for me in the store. The glasses, belt & gold chain are from Hell’s Kitchen Market (which is my absolute favorite market over here). Incase you missed the post on my Vintage & Market shopping adventures so far over here, check it out HERE. At the end of the Summer when I’m leaving NYC, I’ll do a special post with a list of all my favorite vintage spots to shop here, for those of you who are planning on visiting soon time soon. So hopefully that will be helpful :)
I had the best day on Wednesday with all the celebrations for the 4th of July. During the day we went to Central Park which was so beautiful & then that night, my friends & I got invited to a rooftop BBQ/Party in downtown Manhattan which had the most AMAZING view. It was so prefect for watching the fireworks. Also, during the day in Central Park, I got approached by an Abercrombie model recruiter!!…so I met with the managers yesterday to have a chat about everything & they offered me the job this morning. This city is honestly SO exciting !
Also, I have a really cool giveaway going on over on my Facebook Page – Retro Flame – where you can win a £50 pound voucher for the really cool online jewellery store ROCK ‘N ROSE. Celebrities such as Pixie Lott, Una Healy & Fearne Cotton have been spotted wearing pieces from the store so be sure to check out this giveaway !
Have a great weekend everyone :)
Stylishly yours,

    You know as I was reading up to the part where you said u’d be leaving at the end of the summer and I was just thinking how amazing for you it would be if you were just offered a job at the end of the summer to stay (…would you?) and then you mentioned getting a job with Abercrombie! Congrats!

  16. I have these sandals too and thinking whether I will actually get to wear them in Dublin this summer… funky outfit, me like ;)
