|How cool is this bracelet? I love that it's delicate yet hilarious. I can't think of anywhere that I wouldn't wear it.|
It's been exactly a week since I posted, but I promise I wasn't just sitting around watching the 2nd season of Orange Is The New Black! I was in NYC for a couple of days with one of my gal pals to catch a music festival on Randall Island called The Governor's Ball (more about that later).
We also spent an afternoon in Brooklyn at Smogasburg, a food flea market where you just walk around tasting delicious treats and eats from mostly local vendors. I ate a ramen burger there, which is essentially a burger with a bun of pressed noodles. There was a moment there where I thought I'd died and gone to foodie heaven (more about that later).
We would have loved to stay longer, but were catching a band in the late afternoon so our escapades in Brooklyn were confined to a couple of hours. I think we still did pretty good for ourselves. On our way back to the subway we stumbled across an artist's flea market aptly called Artists & Fleas and couldn't resist taking a peek inside. Well, I'm glad I did because I got the best wine lover's swag of life.
While perusing, I saw a little booth called Metal Taboo, which featured metal art jewelery with deviant messages such as FML, STFU and Hot Mess. I'm a bit square so I had to really meditate on what the second acronym meant. Ahhh...I get it now. Anyways, I ended up buying a delicate bracelet with the words WINO engraved on it for about 30$ USD. I know it's a bit expensive, but I figure it's much cheaper than Johnny Depp's Wino Forever tattoo. If you're feeling a little deviant yourself, you can always check out their online shop on Etsy.
When in Williamsburg...
