WINK: The City Made You Look

Upon a stroll in a trendy part of the Upper West Side, amongst Intermix, Theory and excited Eclipse fans lining up at LOEWS theatre, stands WINK. A cute, girly boutique filled with hot pink and silver damask wallpaper and crystal chandeliers. It is not just any WINK store either, but the very same WINK store featured on a recent episode of MTV's The City. If you are like me, you will probably check out the store hoping to try some Whitney Eve pieces but unfortunately you will have to wait until the fall.Until then you can enjoy the lovely, flouncy blouses, rompers and dresses by Yumi Kim and Amanda Uprichard.

       Lining the walls of WINK were lightweight pieces such as an oversized floral t-shirt, a soft brocade style hot pink party dress. My favourite piece had to be a navy blue romper with white stripes with pink and white flowers throughout. Made of silk and designed by Yumi Kim, it is my official go-to piece when I want to look like I have spent the weekend in St. Tropez or the Hamptons.

For you purse lovers out there, WINK has got your covered with their decorated purse wall. That's right! An entire wall decorated with purses hanging from a nail. It takes the concept of fashion meets art to a whole new level. My absolute favourite was a red leather cross body chain bag by Andrea Brueckner. Perfect for your summer nights and autumns days. Hell, it's perfect for everything! 

WINK is my kind of store with the perfect mix of girly fun and chic style. If you ever find yourself on the Upper West Side and need a place to find your perfect summer outfit, this is the place!
