Untold Stories: Manhattan 

It was one of those moments… In New York City, the hustle and bustle of folks rushing past, each with their own stories — their own places to be. 

  

But in this instant, this was my place. I had nowhere to go, I was already there, and all I wanted was to bask in my moment. 

  
  

It’s an interesting thing, walking through the streets of Manhattan in a bright pink tutu.   

  
One woman stopped me and said, in a heavy Russian accent, “verrrrry niiice.” Another pointed me out to her preschool aged daughter and said, “look! She looks like a princess!” 

  

Mostly though, people just walked briskly past, giving a quick glance, and returning to their fixed-eyed, onward-bound stares as they continued to where they had to go. 

  
But for me… Time stood still. The yellow cabs whizzed by, cars honked and pedestrians whirred about, each, undoubtedly with somewhere very important to be… It was all just a blur — a dazzling kaleidoscope of colours and light.

  
So, there I was in my custom made tutu from The Tutu Experience, (AKA the fabulous Miss Lion Hunter), a pretty crochet detail blouse and Jessica Simpson Sandals from Addition Elle…  

   

 

My playful and whimsical accessories, a bag that my mum picked up for me as a donation to The Humane Society of Canada, a gorgeous gold hoop necklace from Fashion To Figure, and my adorable alphabet bracelet from Ready To Stare, creating the perfect balance between fairy princess and Times Square funk… 

  

 

I was a little awestricken and overcome with the untold stories around me… But amidst all that commotion, as the humid breeze blew through the tulle of my skirt, I knew that mine, was only beginning.

P.S. I’m basically fat Carrie Bradshaw now.
