before i begin, i would just like to note that i am absolutely adoring the wide leg trousers and long hemlines this season. such a fresh turn from skinnies and minis!! so, the lovely february 15 began with a trip to silvercup studios to interview gossip girl’s costume designer, eric daman. how i miss taking the Q train all the way to queensboro plaza! it is always a treat to visit my sweet friends in wardrobe; they all hold such a special place in my heart. some pro filmers (i like to call them), alex and aaron craig joined me and shannon on the excursion, and we had a grand time. we left with some rockin footage, and we might have filmed a scene on set? the spontaneity that occurs in this city is beyond me, and i can’t get enough.
shannon and i subwayed it down to soho to meet her mom and aunt at mercer kitchen: one of my favorite spots tucked underground on prince street. the atmosphere is pure bliss, and the mercer burger was so scrumptious. with an hour to spare, i made my way across town to the marc by marc jacobs show. i found myself in gramercy (my old neighborhood), reminiscing on some of my greatest memories, all the while scouting out some new spots to call my favorite. i stumbled upon ‘my way coffee’, and my heart melted by its charm. it was a narrow little place with an organic feel. it has officially made my master nyc list.
garance dore, the sartorialist, and anna dello russo chatting it up before the show.
i arrived to a bustling crowd of fascinating people! the collection was too much fun–patterns bursted with spunky colors, and chunky wedge booties kept hemlines from dragging on the floor. SPOTTED: a slew of bloggers, anna dello russo in a gold fringe leather coat, and bryanboy (gotta love him). the most exhilarating part: two of my all time favorite up and comers walked–arizona muse and lindsey wixon. sheer amazingness. i met susie bubble on my way out, and watched the sartorialist work his magic on the street.
on my way to topshop…aka the store that has a frequent place in my dreams. this could have been dangerous, but i left with nothing in hand. now that is a miracle. off to enjoy the new york city ballet with shannon. these shows are so stunningly graceful and always a delight. what a wonderful and calming end to a joyfully hectic day. au revoir!
