It’s been a while (sorry new blogger). I’ve been really busy working full time trying to build an art career, being a wifey, watching Netflix, breathing and trying to take over the world. It can be pretty stressful, so I’ve been needing some time with my girls. A nice trip, like the one in the movie Girls Trip, but just on one small little detail. See the way my bank account works, well ain’t nobody got money or time for that. Queue Nanthale, my friend who decided we should have a girls trip, a NYC staycation – a vacation where you stay your ass at home. Because honestly there’s no where better than NYC. Excited? Wanna hear about how it went? No? Well I’ll tell you anyway, here we go Staycation part 1.

How does one enjoy a staycation? Great question, doll. Food, Fashion, Friends and Fun (in that order). First let’s talk about the first event of the day a fun and educational: The Badass Bitches Tour by Museum Hack. Before we get into that let me introduce my girls: Marlena (bigcitycurvygirlthinwallet), Brooke (Madame Finehouse), Marcy (Fearlessly Just Me), Nantale ( N.E.C. Style) and Fabiola (Fabiola Michelle). My girls joined me during the Badass Bitches Tour (hereon known as BABS) to bring down the patriarchy.
The BABS tour takes a “normal” museum tour at the MET and turns it on it’s head. The theme is Feminism and the lack of female artist in the museum. Spoiler alert- there ain’t that many. On this tour you be taken on a scavenger hunt to find….well I won’t give it away, but be burning down glass ceilings. 5 stars, the best time you’ll have looking at paintings of dead folks by other dead folks, I guarantee.
So what does one wear to a Badass Bitch Tour? Easy you wear looks by Woman Within’s Chelsea Studio via FullBeauty.com. The theme was comfy, casual and cute (Why the side eye Marlena? This is my casual). I choose a lovely navy blue sleeveless maxi and paired it with a patterned headwrap with a simple kimono (sold out but similar) for a perfect boho look. The best thing about the look is it can be dressed up or down depending on how you style.
After leaving the Met, we decided to end the day with what inspired it all the weekend – the “Girl’s Trip” movie. Off to IPC Theaters we went for the “Ultimate Night Out” at iPic theaters. iPic is a unique dine-in movie experience located in Fulton Market. There you can order from a full dining menu and bar with amazing drinks, this is a grown folks only type vibe. It was the perfect way to end the day. Stay turned for part 2 coming soon!
