loveworldtour NY... an afternoon in Williamsburg

There are hot days... and then there are hot NEW YORK days.  The heat in that city is unlike anything I've ever felt since... well never actually.  It sticks to your body & weighs you down like Satan's claws pulling you towards the core of the earth with each passing step.  All the drama aside.. it's really really hot... but you get the point now.  So you must understand just how hard it is to have to rush around the city on some Amazing Race x KTV Reggies Rush vibe finishing off the last of my to-do list on my last day.   Needless to say I didn't get through it all but I did make it to the beautiful Paul Smith sale outlet in Williamsburg & then discovered some gorgeous little street side boutiques (my favourite of which was called Joinery..will tell u more about that later) & vintage stores and a great lunch spot where I had the yummiest salad I have ever had. And then we got caught in the most intense NY Summer rainstorm as we navigated the subways and sidestreets towards my last little shopping stint in Soho. These are the kind of days movies are made of... seriously...

These sweet potato fries are pure magic... from Lodge in Williamsburg

This is the salad.  I get hungry just looking at it now - also from Lodge

The next few pics are of the store I mentioned earlier called Joinery.  It really is one of the most beautiful little boutiques I have ever seen.  Although I didn't get the opportunity to meet her personally, I feel like the owner and I would have a lot to talk about.  It's owned by a lady named Angela Silva whose love of design and good quality materials drove her to personally select & source each item in the store and carefully curate them into one beautiful shopping experience.
