Greetings From New York


What an amazing week! I now see why New York is called the city that never sleeps…I feel like I haven’t slept in days. Catching up with old friends and making new ones has been such a blast. And being in town during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week has me giddy with each glimpse of fashion royalty. So far I’ve said hello to Simon Doonan, made a fool of myself in front of Scott Schuman, and snapped photos of Bill Cunningham and Miroslava Duma. Eek!

By far, the best item I brought with me to New York have been these smoking slippers. I had visions of walking around New York in glamorous heels and cute blazers…silly me. Instead, pretty much every day I’ve worn shorts, these flats, and a terrible frizzy new hairdo thanks to the east coast humidity.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend! I’m super behind on my blog reading, photo uploading, and posting, so please bear with me as I slowly get used to the jet lag and fast pace of New York! In the mean time, I’ve been much more active posting my adventures on Instagram, so you can follow me there if you’d like.

      Thank you Tiffany! Keep an eye on them because they’ll definitely go on sale. Hopefully a good deal can be had on them in a few months. =)

    I love NY too. I did the same thing as you. When i was there, i brought cute heels and boots to wear but ended up only wearing flats. I did so much walking!

    Gor-geous! And, so fun to meet you. So true re: flats. I’m still paying the price for the days I walked around in heels. Not smart. PS: wearing my TOpshop version of your amazing flats today!
