City Point A Day out in Brooklyn in a Loft Maxi





New York is an ever changing place. From it’s inception New York and has been changing and evolving, be it good or bad it does not stay the same. And New York’s most recent facelift in downtown Brooklyn is the newly minted shopping mecca—City Point. My friend Angela and I decided to check it out this past Saturday, and it is, as one of my coworkers would describe it—a millennial paradise. Take that as you will it was fun place to shop and stroll about. Stay tuned for a video on that.

It was quite hot and humid so I reached for a maxi dress almost the only thing I can wear when it is super hot. I picked this one up at The Loft, I love their maxi dresses as they are made from a very light weight wrinkle free material. This one has a wonderful floral pattern and I also picked up a pair of trousers in the same pattern.

I love the color and it is made from a water resistant material that kind of looks like leather but not quite

The sunnies I picked up at Forever 21 they look a lot like the pair I lost from Quay Australia—still bitter about that. No wear near the quality of Quay Australia but they will do in a pinch. And the bag is also from Forever 21. I do not generally shop in Forever 21 but I popped in to one the other day on my lunch break as it was super hot and I needed an excuse to get out of the sun.

I spied this over-sized shopper and was surprised at how expensive it looked. I love the color and it is made from a water resistant material that kind of looks like leather but not quite. It is huge, I was able to fit my DLSR camera, an extra lens and my new Canon G7X vlogging camera in it, along with all the usual things I keep in a bag. Perfect for a day out shooting. Looking chic while getting things done—priceless.
