More importantly, however, the HSF features FOOD. Delicious, wonderful, scrumptious food. We salivated over EVERYTHING and, since all we had had for breakfast that morning were two left-over Macaron Café macarons each because we spent the morning
Seasoned & buttered corn-on-the-cob from Brooklyn Taco Co.

I also realized that my outfit that day was pretty much the perfect street fair get-up.
Dress: Kimchi Blue; Belt: Kimchi Blue; Platform wedges: Aldo; Bag: Marc Jacobs
- The dress is lightweight, sleeveless, open-backed, and airy- perfect for tackling the ungodly heat wave that has started to sweep over the City.
- It’s also long, so you can sit and eat in grass, on random ledges, etc. etc. without flashing poor, unsuspecting strangers.
- It ALSO features a dark print that can easily disguise unsightly grass or food stains. What’s that, you say? You manage not to stain or drop things on most of your clothing because you are no longer five years old? Oh, guess that’s just me.
- The black platform wedges are super comfortable and can
elevate me above 5’2” so I don’t look like my usual hobbit selfelevate you a bit in crowds so you can see better.
