You may have seen on my twitter account or tumblr, but this weekend I went to NEW YORK CITY!
My family used to go all the time, but I haven't been back in years. This was the only weekend where I didn't have any obligations (i.e. crew)... so I planned the trip in super short notice.
I went all by myself... and didn't meet up with any body while there. It was weird. And nice. And lonely. All at once.
Well, here's the absolute only picture of myself during the trip. I'm not one to ask a random person to take a picture of my lonesome self. Haha... probably the only downside to the entire trip.
On Friday night, I went to go see Mary Poppins. It definitely was good, but it was not my favorite show. I will say though, however, that my sister's chorus did an unbelievably good job during their performance of it in high school. ***Shout out to all my Rick's Cafe kids.***
I will admit, I spent most of my time just walking up and down the streets. (My feet are proof... my blisters have blisters.) This is another Rick's Cafe memory... Diamonds are a girl's best friend!!!
Ooooh, I just LOVED all the fall decor. I'm not a huge fan of tacky decorations... but pumpkins were everywhere and fabulous! There was this one house, oh how I wish I had taken a picture. It was INSANELY decorated. Like, cartoon characters, lights, cobwebs, pumpkins, bats, ev-er-y-where.
As per Fordham Prepster's recommendation, I spent a good portion of Saturday morning in the Met. You could spend days in there and constantly see something new. It's incredible.
Oh, what's that??? An entire store dedicated to crewcuts???
I wish Little V was with me! We would have had so much fun trying on all the clothes together. So cute.
This is one picture I got before getting yelled at... hehe...
The Lilly store!!!
The entire store was FUN and BRIGHT and everything you'd expect from Lilly...... but maybe not. The actual store and decor were tres chic, but the girls working there were HORRENDOUS. They stood in the back of the store chatting up a storm. And they weren't saying very nice things. I was actually disappointed. Did I buy anything? NOPE. The clothes were not enticing in the least. Maybe some of the dresses were "cute," but not $350 cute.
The prints going down the stairway were so fun!
And the hand paintings hidden throughout the store were really fun to read.... they reminded me a bit of Eloise!
Part II tomorrow!
