Apollo Theatre, Harlem

Jacket: Opshop $2.50, top: borrowed, shorts: old, boots: target, bangles: city chic

Definitely one of my most favourite places in New York.

It's hard to say this because I felt like I really only saw a glimpse of New York. I can't get over all the little places we visited and the unknown beauties showcased by those lucky bloggers who get to call New York home. There is a trillion and one things to do and see....but the Apollo is one of those places you just have to experience.

You couldn't stop me getting on my feet and dancing...the band was THAT GOOD....the acts were kinda a let down but the host and the band made you forget all about them.

 I loved seeing the mix of people at the show and also the reactions of the local people when we were walking around another day.... my eclectic group of friends received certain looks (LOL yes we know we are an odd looking bunch), grunts and comments > walked into a sandwich bar when this old lady sicked her tongue and grumbled "what the hell?". Out of all the interesting characters in Harlem, I can't believe they noticed us :D Finally got to wear my fave little jacket. I love the pattern and it complimented the solid colour (top borrowed from my sister) adding some interest to a pretty simple outfit. It was one of my most favourite, cheapest and comfortable ensembles that I wore in NY...or maybe I just love it so much because of where I wore it and the good memories that come flooding back when I see these photos.
 *Sings loudly and dances around the room* "This is amateur night, this is amateur night!"

Big Love,
