HEY!!!! Whats up?! Day 3 has arrived.. yes I know time flies when you’re having fun reading my blog. So here we are, Chermelle and I making our rounds in New York, and today brings us to one of my favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Greenpoint. Besides Lena Dunham saying so, I’ve loved hanging out there for ages.. It’s quaint but gritty, there are fun bars and hot men.. what else could we want? Oh yes.. how about good coffee shops and vintage stores to shop at?
Here is a recap of our day:
Coffee Shop: Café Grumpy Greenpoint
Coffee: Deri, Kochoha, [Sidama Region] Ethiopia.
Thrift Store: Fox and Fawn
Coffee Notes: You handle me with strength and gentility. Your floral flavors in my face so beautifully, I welcome how you demured my spirit – as if I were dried flowers contained and beautiful just the same.
Thrift Notes: balanced beauty, feminine, complex
Gasp! Exaggerations escaped me because the Victorian goodness of this lady number went viral in my heart. Its detail, its fit was perfect. It was a message in a bottle from a faraway place and it said, “meet me in sidama.’
Coffee Notes:Your wild and I like it! I’m humming to the tune of guava and tobacco in a field of grass. Is this true, it must be, you give me the memory.
Thrift Notes: punch of something, high
Thrifting Find: I almost didn’t find you. You were subtly tucked somewhere with perfect imperfections, giving you the kind of character that begets the story of a history before I came. A petite hole here, a missing sleeve there. I spin in you and flowers from Sidama seem to appear in my hair.
What did we think? Are we in love with the idea of shopping at Fox and Fawn
and of course having a cup of joe at Cafe Grumpy?
Do it, do it!
Here are a few of my favorite outtakes from the day:
During our cupping!
Can you believe we both found dreamy white dresses?
