NYC Monthly

...according to The Fashion Issue of 'New York City Monthly'

I was given the book on fashion's night out.

At first glance it looked boring honestly because I thought there would be more pictures of fashion and upcoming trends. As I read deeper I noticed it was NYC!! I mean, almost everything (if not every single thing) about NY is packed into the 86 pages of this book. I was amazed.

I'm going to share with you what I've learned :) Don't say I never thought you anything lol
