Chinatown || Matching Mint with Secrets in Lace

Exploring all of historic New York City will probably take a lifetime, and I only wonder what took me so long to be here!  Immigration to Manhattan's Chinatown began in the 1840's, and according to Wikipedia, still home to the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere today.  The longevity of authenticity and culture in this area is so obviously apparent, and it was a breathtaking sight to behold.  With buildings over 100 years old, splashes of vibrancy and colors, the aroma of food, this area is an amazing experience just to walk through.  We even stopped for dumplings which were only $5 for 20!  ...and were in fact the best I've ever had.

Inspired by the vibrant & bygone aesthetic of old Chinatown, I donned a floral kimono style top and matching pastel mint stockings from Secrets in Lace.  The Spanish Heel Full Fashioned collection offers a fun range of subtle pastel shades, with a vibrant seam up the back!  Made of 100% nylon on the same machines used in the 1950's, they are of the highest quality and luxuriously soft.  Under my blouse, I wore the Cabaret Plunge Bra for a smooth, subtle lift.
