New York Snap Shots...

Here's a little peak into our trip to New York. It was incredibly busy but superb as always! In between the walking, refueling and many outfit changes we sourced a huge amount of incredible vintage bridal gowns, party dresses, rhinestone jewels and probably our biggest hat and glove collection yet.
Here are a few snaps of our week...

Excellent and slightly obscure signage!
