Ugh, I obviously got back to work after our short weekend in NYC and got sucked up into the day to day, forgetting to update my blog on the remainder of my trip.
Lucky for you readers, this post will now be much more succinct.
Overall, NYC was a great 2 day, 3 night getaway.
We had a few mishaps:
• I ate bad food at lunch on Friday, and had the feeling of knives carving the inside of my stomach for the remainder of the trip (nothing debilitating though)
• Dragged my husband uptown to a fantastic Tapas restaurant which we found is now closed
• Went to the Plaza Hotel for a quick touristy drink and found it was closed for renovations
Saturday we had a fantastic breakfast at Vesuvio Bakery in Soho, then went to the Chelsea Flea Market where I found a gorgeous boiled wool, a-line, mixed mink collared and cuffed coat for… get this: $50!!!!!! The vendor was clearing out some inventory and had total steals. This coat is in MINT condition. It is so damn fun.
In the afternoon we ran up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and then walked across Central Park. We had a very, very, very late lunch at Il Foccacia (darling café) in the Village and then dragged ourselves out for some drinks at a bar in our neighborhood (knives in stomach were getting the best of me).
I would have written a WHOLE lot more but it’s too late.
Here is my fashion observation of NY these days.
EVERYONE is wearing the same thing:
Jeans tucked into Black or Dark Brown Boots with a low heel (one inch at most). A lot of these boots have a buckle (riding type). All the NY gals are also wearing Pea Coats. The Pea Coats are black and are worn in a variety of lengths: Cropped, to the waist, below the hips, ¾ length and full length. If you want to look like a New Yorker (in her 20’s and 30’s) this is what you need to wear. Wrap a pashmina a few times around your neck and you will be all set.
