The other week, I stopped into one of my favorite new-to-me cafés in the city, Lost Weekend, for a quick coffee and also to take pictures of myself getting said coffee. #META. More #META? This is me, asking myself five questions about the Montauk-meets-the-LES establishment:
Hi, Sean! What are you drinking? A cappuccino. Always.
What are you eating? A lemon poppyseed muffin!
How did you discover Lost Weekend NYC? While strolling around adjacent Chinatown, where else?
What do you like about it? #1: It's Supercute. #2: They sell cool isht, like good coffee (duh), and also 'zines, tees and candles. Plus, their space is intimate, but bright and spacious. A great place to sit for a friend date or an afternoon blogging sesh.
And what are you wearing? Hat by American Apparel, shirt by Uniqlo, sweater by Saturdays Surf NYC, coat by Uniqlo, jeans by Cheap Monday and vintage lace-ups. And bag by Steve Mono! And vintage gloves!
This is a good example of 'uniform dressing', seeing as the foundation of this look was blogged a mere week or two ago, in this post (and the jeans and sweater debuted here.) I just switched up my accessories - the bag, the hat, the gloves - et voilà, it's a more polished outfit, with purposefully complementary colors and a slightly less boho patina. Which version do you prefer? Photos in this post: David Williams, me. Visit Lost Weekend at 45 Orchard St., or online on Twitter or Facebook.
