There’s nothing like New York in the Summer. So much stuff going on and a lot of it is free. The outdoor films have to be one of my favorite things to do and I literally have every movie I want to see marked on my calendar from Manhattan to Brooklyn.
One of my favorite things about going to an outdoor movie is the interaction between the crowd and once the film gets going. People get up and dance to the songs in the movie and there’s lots of clapping and woo-hoos throughout famous lines and scenes.
Get there early, pack some goodies, invite friends, layout a blanket and enjoy watching cult classics on the big screen. It’s a bunch of people sharing good nostalgic memories. The entire experience is so worth it.
This is my 1st time venturing out to Brooklyn for this kind of thing. I’ve lived in Manhattan most of my life and I’m really into getting out of the grid. Brooklyn definitely has it’s own thing going on. Nothing like Manhattan. You know how when you go to Europe you can instantly tell the difference between that and America? Well, Brooklyn is the same way. It’s a relaxed scene and everyone just enjoying the moment.
I came to watch the movie, but I couldn’t help but take in the eclectic style Brooklynites have to offer. It’s so different from Manhattan. City fashionistas look like they come out of an editorial magazine. The overall look seems planned or styled I should say (not a bad thing at all) which includes many of the latest trends. Almost a dress to impress. That’s what New York style is known for. Brooklyn is quite the opposite. It’s laissez faire. It’s a mix of grunge, hippie, all American, with a splash of trends. It’s a grab and go look and it works.
Let the style of Brooklyn begin.Up do braids were everywhere. This girl did hers by dividing her hair into 2 parts. She did a rope braid on each side and then pinned it up. Little girl sandals for big people There were fun and quirky food vendors on the cheap to get your grub on.Beer on premise. I’m liking this even more…Brick Oven Pizza on Wheels!Looks pretty good!The crowd BEFORE…wait for AFTER
I loved the turban and entire color palette of this girl’s outfit.More colorful turbans.I liked her cool all American look with the sleeveless denim cropped top and nautical bag.
Backpack from Urban Outfitters
I decided to have a Brewsky. ”Sixpoint” is a Brooklyn brand. This beer was frosty and “crisp” aaahhh just how I like it.Handbags stood out just as much as the crowd.Floral vintage dresses were a huge trend here.
Outdoor movie screenings are so fun…it’s just a bunch of people having a good time. These girls were dancing away to the band playing “Tonight’s Going To Be A Good Night”
If it has color I’m all over it. Loved her vintage shirt and cat eye glasses.
This bag is gorgeous. I saw it from a mile away. You gotta love a girl who can wear an Alexander Wang bag with a patched skirt and wait for this…her shoes below are from Payless!
Black sandals “Isabella Taledo for Payless”Bring the dog too…
Hahahaa…loved this…how many of us thought this before.I kept eyeing this girl’s outfit too. I was drawn to the colors on the dress of course, but I loved how she paired it with the cutoff sleeve faded denim jacket. So I went for it! The dress is from a thrift store with wonderful Native Indian images on it. Jacket is Forever 21. This was her rocking out her rings. I love how she played dress up with her fingers and it all comes together. Thank you for getting snapped4style!
Loved the vintage inspired earrings on the girl below and her…….Gold TOM’S sandalsA bohemian take on the fringe handbag. Purchased from a street vendor in Union Square that was there during the holidays.This is me..my sort of hipster look hahaaa…a.k.a. Katy Perry’s Alter Ego
“WOW” is all I could say when I saw this girl’s dress! It’s vintage from a store on Bedford called Vice Versa. She knew she had it going on! Her “little girl” sandals from Urban Outfitters completed the look.
What’s not to love about this dress. The peek-a-boo sheer was sexy in a casual way. Nice touch with a pop of color layered underneath and the leopard belt. Dress is from Australian designer Therese Rawsthrone.Brooklyn all the way here…a mix of hippie, collegiate, and nautical.
Remember the “BEFORE” picture, this is the AFTER.The sun is setting..it’s almost movie time….CRUEL INTENTIONS, a cult classic was the 1st screening of the McCarren Park’s Summerscreen. Below are some of the most famous scenes.“Sebastian” at the top of the escalators. Everyone in the audience clapped…we still believe in true love.
After party across the street on the King & Grove roofdeck!
