Having just moved to Bushwick, Brooklyn Celine and I were excited to shoot in front of the street art that covers a lot of the walls in this area. While we were looking for a good place to shoot we decided to pop into Urban Jungle. Our friends recommended we go there and I also came across when I was researching Bushwick as a place to live. It’s the go-to vintage place with great prices so I was really excited for this shopping trip.
When I walked in I knew it was a place I could get lost in for hours. They have fur coats galore, a dedicated denim section, plaid shirts, embellished tops and the list goes on. I gravitated towards the fur coat and gillet section of course! Thinking of what I want to add to my winter wardrobe, I was looking for something special. After a while of searching I struck gold when I came across this beautiful brown suede coat! That happened to be CALVIN KLEIN that happened to be $20! Jackpot! I tried it on and I fell in love. I happened to go perfectly with what I was wearing, my F&F ’70’s style palazzo pants and a New Look polo neck. I styled these pants as part of a summer look and few months ago and I always wanted to incorporate them into a winter look, so this was perfect. It fit kind of loosely as it is a large size but it still sat so nicely and I usually get a size up for a winter coat anyway. I couldn’t leave it in the shop and not only that, I couldn’t take it off! I decided it went so well with my outfit that I would keep it on and shoot it right then! We found a great colourful spot just a few minutes from the shop to shoot and I am so happy with the photographs. I am excited to wear my gorgeous Calvin over the winter here in New York. It is so warm and soft and I a have a feeling I am going to wear it with everything!
