My sister actually gave me an idea to recreate the Gnome Polaroids in 'Amelie' [One of my favourite films] for fun when I went away, so I thought why not!
I actually found theres something called the 'Traveling gnome prank' when I looked into it, you learn something everyday.
I took photos in different places in New york, then used photoshop to put them on Polaroids [I didn't use a real gnome, just printed out]

In the film Amelie wants her dad to do something more in his life, so steals his beloved gnome. The gnome is photographed by famous landmarks to show him the places he could discover himself if he traveled/left the house.
What I brought: Standard 'I♥NY tee'/ Faded grey anchor sweater, Forever21
Plain 3/4 length sleeve baseball top, Forever21/ Embroidered waist skirt, Forever21
You can clearly tell I liked Forever21 :) Aparently They are opening stores in the UK now, I think they're is one in Birmingham. [Link]
Black bow Suede flats, Urban Outfitters - Kimchi Blue [$9.99]/ Brown baby satchel, Flea market [$5]
The flea market I went to (where I got my bag) was on 25th Street, near the hotel we were staying at...Me, caught looking at some woolly jumpers, as usual. [Photo taken by Jack.C]
And finally a little something from Marc Jacobs! This cute little Skull necklace :) We happened to visit the store on Bleecker St when there was a launch party going on for the collaboration with Playboy too.
