Back to NYC Life- Highline Park, FIT, & Buffalo Exchange

I've been back in New York for about a week now. I've really enjoyed catching up with friends and going to some of my favorite NYC spots like Highline Park in Chelsea. My friend Liz took me to a fantastic Venezuelan restaurant called Caracas Arepa Bar in the Lower East Side. I definitely recommend it! I also started my classes for spring semester. I think I'm really going to enjoy Merchandising for E-Commerce and Computer Aided Product Development. In Computer Aided Product Development I will be learning how to draw sketches in Adobe Illustrator. I've never done anything like that before so I'm really looking forward to learning something new. Yesterday my friend Brittany and I went to Buffalo Exchange in Chelsea and found some really cute stuff for so cheap! Buffalo Exchange is a second hand store where you can buy and sell apparel and accessories. The staff is very selective when deciding what to buy from customers- everything has to be the correct colors and trends for the season and garments must be lightly worn. Buffalo Exchange has locations all over the U.S.- click here to see if there's a store near you. My favorite item I bought yesterday was a lace Alice and Olivia skirt for only $30! I also bought a high low skirt by Noble U for $20.50 and floral top by Angie for $9.50. Being back at FIT and being surrounded by so many of my creative and fashionable peers is so inspiring. This newfound inspiration has spark some topics for future blog posts, so definitely check back each week for new posts :)
