After fashion week back in September, I was super excited for some of the shows this time around. Because I'm full-time at Levo now (yay!), I had to scale back the ones I decided to go to. Obviously the presentation at Kate Spade was not a question. And the blogger get together at Jack Rogers was an absolute yes too!
Despite the fact that I'm super sick right now (eep! horrible sore throat and stuffy nose) and the inclement weather, it was really a fun day. Actually it was kind of bizarre and totally all over the place. But amazing in every single way.
I woke up exceptionally early to get some L(L) stuff done. And then I panicked because the snow was already beginning to fall. So I threw on leggings and my puffer jacket and went to the nearest grocery store. Let me just say... I found the sweet spot for grocery store shopping in Manhattan!!! At seven in the morning, the aisles are EMPTY. Stress-free. I stocked up on food (and chocolates, duh!) in case the storm was super, super bad.
After finishing up work, I met Mackenzie in our neighborhood and we caught a cab downtown. We met up with little miss Inslee for cappuccinos and croissants. In typical Instagram-obsessed fashion, we all decided to capture the cappuccinos... there may or may not have been a countdown-to-upload involved.
We really weren't looking forward to leaving the cafe because the snow had turned to seriously annoying icy rain. I wasn't too excited about not being able to wear the cute heels I had picked out, but the Hunter Wellingtons ended up being the best decision of the day. (The worst? Leaving my gloves at home. Did I mention this was a blizzard?)
We arrived at the presentation soggy and basically frozen, but it was instantly fun! NEON & BLOGGER FRIENDS! And Kate Spade. Lots of Kate Spade.
Ha! Gotcha Miss Design Darling!
And then I found Bip Ling! Bip is so cool. We met last year when she worked out of the Levo office. She is beyond gorgeous and just has the coolness factor x 1000. Seriously. I hadn't seen her in forever and it was such a surprise to see her again! And we matched!!
Okay so truthfully, the presentation was amazing– but super crowded. I think I started having a panic attack like the minute I walked in. I ended up walking from the presentation to the Levo office to get a few more minutes of work in. I have to say, walking two miles in a blizzard is the best cure for panic attacks. Blisters, frozen hands, and wind blown hair aside... I felt remarkably better when I got back to Union Square!
Before I knew it, I was walking back up to Jack Rogers. Despite the weather outside, I felt like I was in Palm Beach!!!
I was drawn to all the Georgetown colored shoes... Especially those loafers.
We previewed the new shoes and learned how to make floral arrangements and met more friends! Mackenzie, Anna, and I then braved the cold for a bit and got soup and sandwiches. I seriously could not stop thinking about soup. I think I talked about it for a solid thirty minutes.
Lots of fun!
I'm seriously surprised that I survived the day. I woke up at 5am with an even worse sore throat. Eep! But it was worth it!!
