From ModCloth Writing Team Intern, Amy Cockcroft:
Picture this: a boiling hot day in August wandering around Washington Square Park, enjoying the beauty of the city of New York and feeling overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle that is like no other. A weekend trip to the Big Apple was just what I needed to inspire me- the sights, the diversity and of course, the style. I’d only been in the city for an hour when I spotted this girl across a fountain and was immediately drawn to her look, one that screamed chic and stylish. She was seemingly unfazed by the heat of the sun that was making everyone else look pretty uncomfortable. Instead, Emma Vintäng combined a black tank under a gorgeous white summer dress, super sharp sunglasses, a quirky key on a long chain and black booties that many wouldn’t dare to don until the colder months. She, however, pulled the look off perfectly. I was green-eyed and jealous as I made my way over to talk to her, only to discover that she herself was a fashion buyer for www.grandpa.se in Stockholm, Sweden! This is a really cool site to check out, and I’d say that they definitely have the right people on the job for supplying gorgeous and modern clothing. Isn’t her ensemble just sublime?!
