Big Apple Appointments Part II

September 20, 2014


Beautiful, crisp fall weather greeted us on our second day in the city.  We took full advantage of the chill in the air and pulled out our favorite sweaters and booties.  As you can see we obviously love our Rebecca Minkoff Alex booties and wore them the entire trip!  They are literally the most comfortable shoe and great for walking around the city.  We were definitely feeling the New York vibe and opted to wear black dresses by BCBGMaxaria that were great for traveling.  I wore a Mara Hoffman leopard sweater cape from Fall 2014 and Leah wore a fabulous by Malene Birger cardigan.  These were both easy sweaters to keep us warm while running around town.



Our first appointment of the day was with Elizabeth and James and it did not disappoint.  The spring collection featured lots of pastels, matching separates, and cut outs.  It had a very laid back, California vibe to it that the Olsens attributed to the fact they had been traveling to L.A. so much opening their new The Row store.

Issa was our next stop and it blew us away!  The prints featuring horses were so unique and the colors were so rich.  These were truly extraordinary pieces and captivating.



We ended our day of appointments at Nanette Lepore and couldn’t have asked for a better finale.  You could feel summer in the showroom with the bright colors and prints.  The collection was filled with yellow, aqua, and coral.  It was hard to narrow down our favorites because we loved so much of it!

We treated ourselves to blowouts at the DryBar in Midtown.  Their stylists worked their magic on our hair while we sipped champagne.  There’s no better way to spend a Friday afternoon than getting your hair done!  Leah got the Manhattan which was sleek and smooth and I chose the Cosmo-Tai which was a combo of loose curls and beachy waves.

I absolutley loved the products they used on my hair!  Before blowdrying she sprayed the Texas Tea Volumizing Hair Spray on my roots.  Then after she was done curling she sprayed the Triple Sec all over my hair to add volume and texture to my fine hair.  This stuff was the best smelling product I have ever used!  It has a fresh Vanilla scent that has lasted into the second day!  What is really great about this product is that it texturizes, amplifies, and refreshes the hair.  You can use this the second day to refresh your blowout and absorb any oil.



After getting our hair done we popped over to the BG Cafe at Bergdorf Goodman’s and may I say this is an exceptional restaruant!  Their Lobster Mac and Cheese is to die for!



Leah got the Lobster Napoleon, a magnificent dish of lobster, fresh pasta layers, chanterelles and truffle butter.  If you love lobster then this is the perfect dish!

I chose the Chicken Milanse which was a parmesan crusted chicken breast topped with arugula and tomatoes and fingerling potatoes on the side. This was a great light dish and full of flavor!

We strolled through Bergdorfs after lunch and drooled over fabulous shoes, clothes, and bags.  It was the perfect place to end our trip before heading to the airport.  NYC was amazing and we cannot wait to go back again!

NYC Day 3 Recap

September 7, 2014

It was a beautiful Sunday in the City. I am blessed that my mom has been able to join me on this trip and we have been having a absolute blast. We started the day at the amazing Mandarin Oriental Spa! There are no words that could do this place justice. It is the most serene, relaxing and beautiful spa I have ever been to. We both had wonderful massages and then finished the trip in their oxygen vitality pool. Needless to say, we didn’t want to leave! I can’t think of a better way to start a day!


We then headed to Bergdorf’s for lunch at the BG Cafe. No trip to NYC, in my opinion, is complete without a visit to Bergdorf Goodman! Seven floors of beautiful clothing, jewelry and accessories make this girl happy! Not to mention, the food at the Cafe is out of this world. We split my favorite, the Gotham Salad, and the rich and savory lobster mac and cheese!



After a delightful lunch we headed south to Seedhouse to view Megan Park’s Spring 2015 collection. She is one of my favorite designers housed at Mosaic and I love her colorful and vibrant prints!



After our appointment we had a little time to spare so we zipped up to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have always wanted to go but have never had a chance. You could literally spend several days in this place and not see everything.

We only had about an hour to spare so we headed to the Rooftop Garden exhibit to take in one of the best views in the city.

Sadly, tonight was the last runway show we will attend this trip. Nanette Lepore’s runway show was a great way to end our time at the Lincoln Center. The collection was colorful and breezy and the show ended with the models dancing down the runway! Since the show was at seven o’clock, I decided it would only be appropriate to really dress up. I have been drooling over this Sachin + Babi dress since it came in! The leather applique detailing is amazing! I paired it with my trusty black peep toe Louboutin’s and a leopard clutch.




The next several days will be jam packed full of appointments to view Spring 2015 collections. We can’t wait to show you what the major trends will be!
