Walking into Spiritual America on Rivington St. in Soho was like imaging up my ideal closet and then swooshing open the doors, voila, dream come true.
I couldn’t pick just ONE item but unfortunately, I don’t have Chiara Ferragni’s cashflow. So, I copped the raspberry pink Rodebjer knit sweater because it caught my eye. In fact, I thought about it overnight before purchasing, just cuz NYC is full of amazing shopping I didn’t wanna blow my load prematurely, if you know what I mean.

The next day it was settled. I walked 4 blocks in the rain to get the sweater and wore it right out of the store. If that’s not excitement, call me a cab. I threw it over my floral Zara pants for a crisp morning in Times Square.
Designer, Carin Rodebjer, hails from Sweden. She studied fashion design in New York and now works from the Big Apple making amazing clothes for her eponymous line, Rodebjer. Check their website for the FW2012 collection just in. I really admire her use of colour, it’s warm and at the same time, refreshing. There’s a precarious balance of hot and cold in her designs that I can only describe as so.
