Last night I attended the launch of Jeffrey Campbell’s new bag line at a Fourth of July party at LF stores in SoHo. I walked into free lemonade from girls wearing various pieces of American Flag apparel (totally IN right now, right?) and cupcakes, cake, and everything themed. I immediately found my fellow blogger friends amongst the plethora of associates mixed with the “too cool for school” teenage crowd.
After saying hello and getting accustomed to the situation I took a look around the store. to be honest, I was scared for my life. LF Stores is the epitome of force fed fashion, catering to the personality and personal taste-less followers of the Nylon bible. You’ve got your crop tops, American flag shorts, fringed “vintage” tees, and all-you-can-wear high waisted “vintage” Levi shorts. Oh, and did I mention the Jeffrey Campbell Lita’s?
Amongst the rubble of fashion vomit I managed to find the Sam Edelman heels I’ve been lusting after, as well as this gorgeous kimono.
Okay, so I don’t completely hate the shop. I think, piece by piece, they are some amazing finds. But for the most part, I’d rather not be force fed my daily dose of Nylon Magazine’s poolings all at once.
Anyway, so after waiting through two bag giveaways (one of which was won by my dear friend Monroe!), 6 of us decided to go for sushi at Noodle Zen on St. Mark’s.
Since I’d already had sushi for lunch, I opted for a vegetable tempura udon, which was quite good, especially alongside my orange chu-hi beverage.
Now for what I wore:
Misfits tee from Hot Topic (DIY/cutout myself)
Forever 21 shorts
Gifted R&Em bag (can be found here)
Peter Grimm hat
And now I leave you with this photobooth strip of Nicole and I making funny faces! ❤
So true about LF being force fed fashion, I couldn’t have said it any better myself. But I also still like it hahaha (piece by piece, like you). Those shorts make me want to scream RAWR! Love. them.
haha thanks! happy you can agree ❤

Haha, I automatically sideeye anyone that tells me LF is their favorite store. It’s like I was really excited to go there when i first heard of it. I moved near to one went and then never went back til their end of whatever sale. I just don’t get the crazy hype.
thanks so much for agreeing ❤ seriously NUTS
Really cool photos! Happy 4th of July!
thanks dear <33
This looks like an amazing time! I’ve got to agree about the LF stores thing. I’ve never successfully found something I was too crazy about, but maybe that’s because so many people are wearing the majority of their store!
Have a great day!
thanks for agreeing! I kinda liked a few of the cro tops, but they’re SO overly priced for their “vintage DIY” project apparel
wow these americas shoes rock soooo much:)
Sucha a perfect LITAS ❤
