I don’t wait it to be true but all good things must after all come to an end. This has been a magical experience that’s not only taken me to various neighborhoods in the city and shown me so much culture, fashion and coffee, but it’s also brought a new friend in my life and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it!
The last stop in Coffee + Thrift takes us to the LES, more specifically alphabet city, where our wild card coffee shop 9th Street Espresso provided us with some warmth and comfort from a snowy day. I had not had my morning coffee on that day and I ended up having a drip cup just to get me going. This cup was so damn delicious that I ended up ordering a second one (shameless).
Following our coffee session Chermelle and I headed to my FAVORITE thrift shop in the city. I’m sure you’ve seen me rave about it on multiple occasions.. cause I seriously find the best stuff there. Of course I’m referring to No Relations.
Here are our notes from the day:
Coffee Shop: 9th Street Espresso
Coffee:Three-Bean Brazilian Blend
Thrift Store: No Relations
Coffee Notes: Though I sleep through the night, coffee is my reset button at the beginning of the day. I like it drip; I like it dark.
Thrift Notes: Bold, loud, crafted.
Thrift Notes: I would never need a second impression after this first one. These bold, hand-woven colors in a classic shape were an immediate obsession. My mind raced, when I caught up with it, we were both in the happy place of Brazil. I’m ready for a statement now.
Coffee Notes: Coffee + Milk it’s such a great pairing. Your what I simply want, but you can often be simply complicated – like a good pair of blue jeans.
Thrift Notes: Don’t fool me.
Thrift Find: Tried, true and blue is my sum adjective description of a great pair of jeans. Hard to find, but once found you can’t get enough of ‘em. With trademark Wrangler stitching and as Stefany said, “a great butt” these jeans became not just the wildcard but a smdlr style staple. Awesomeness!
And now for some sweet out takes from the day:
Thank you so much for checking out our post and taking this wild ride across New York City to explore some of the best coffee and thrift around!!
