In New York, I:
Spent eight hours on a bus. Met up with Jen. Participated in the Lulu's Style Studio Event (follow this here link for pictures). Ate the best ever corned beef hash and eggs at 3AM. Had brunch with Sydney, Natalie (and their sweet babies), and the lovely ladies from Ruche. Ate more food. Explored the Brooklyn Flea. Found two amazing things for not a lot of money at Beacon's Closet. Ate even more food at the Brooklyn Bowl (and ran into the very awesome Caroline!). Stayed with my best friend from high school. Ate even more food at the Ace Hotel. Had two glasses of wine and got real chatty (sorry for the TMI that most likely happened, Kate). Saw the back of Matt Damon. Got back on the bus for another eight hours.
In New York, I did not:
Take a single outfit shot. Go to any runway shows. Get enough sleep.
I would much rather spent a weekend catching up with good friends and meeting other amazing bloggers then running around fashion week like a madwoman. I'm officially over feeling pressured to participate in things that I don't feel strongly towards. I packed clothes that were practical. I was comfortable all weekend. I had a great freaking time, but was happy to return home. I feel as though I stayed true to myself this time, I didn't stress myself out, I somehow managed to not get sick. I just had a- relatively simple- weekend away for once!
A big thank you to Lulu's for inviting me to participate in their event (which was lovely and I am so glad I was able to go), to Ruche for inviting me to brunch (that croissant was the best ever), and to Caroline for treating us to some kind of delicious dessert at the Brooklyn Bowl. Come to Pittsburgh and I'll buy you some pierogi (or just a donut)!
How do you feel about Fashion Week?
