Oh, how i miss New York

Ok, here goes. Some of the pics from my NY trip (what, few months ago? Gee, time flies..). Sorry for the horrible collages, there were just too many pictures to upload one by one. And i still don't have photoshop so i had to use just some online collage maker.
Click the pics to see them bigger.
I'll post photos of my finds later... It took me a while to discover that "flea market" is not the same thing there and here in Finland. But when i did realise that it was" thrift stores" i needed to find, i did find few pretty good ones! Vintage shops were all pretty expencive, but worth visiting.

The first few nights we were staying in Long Island (with few serial killers on the loose, not kidding!) with our friend PJ. Then we were off to Manhattan.
The parties, shops, people, food, museums...WOW. I gotta go back soon.

We also went to see the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition in Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was simlpy amazing. If you have the chance to go, you should!
