What better place to spend the day of love in the (in the words of Ms Bradshaw) city of labels and love? And better yet—it’s during New York Fashion Week: The mecca for the fashion obsessed. For those who cannot embrace this affinity, fashion week is like the NFL for football players and the Harvard for the Ivy Leagues. Being here is everything I could every hope for, and so much more!
Here’s a rundown of my first day (Valentine’s day):
Although I arrived to the city at 12 o’clock a.m. I was dying to see Bryant Park so Erika took me down the block to see the tents. It was love at first sight (I even jumped up and down and then got weak in the knees).
We got some beauty sleep and in the morning I headed to the tents to meet Erika for the Adam fashion show. As I was headed backstage, I had my first stellar New York encounter: The YSL models were unloading swag bags in uber cute shiny black bombers!
After I had my first backstage experience, I went to the front of the tents and was greeted by a huge Barbie display. This fashion week is like a big birthday bash for Miss Plastic who turns 50 this year. She got the best present any girl could ever ask for: specially made pink patent leather Christian Louboutin shoes!
Love was definitely in the air!
That night we headed to a fabulous blog party at a rooftop venue. It was hosted by Daily Makeover which I used for my latest hair inspiration.
To top the lovely day off, Erika and I headed to the Magnolia Bakery (Carrie Bradshaw’s fave!) to get a special Valentine’s cupcake:
Although my feet are killing me from running down 5th Avenue in stilettos, New York has me totally smitten. â™¥
