NYFW 2010

New York City was an amazing blur, of sleepless nights, overwhelming style, too much shopping and as usual one too many cocktails. I was lucky enough to spend my days and nights with my sister, my bestie, and her sis (the generous host) for one very fast paced week.

I started out in Brooklyn. No more than an hour after landing at JFK we were bar hopping in Park Slope, gossiping with the locals, and planning our future meet up. During my time I sight-saw, attended some shows/ parties, ate some amazing meals (Pipa's Tapas anyone?) and saw my fair share of celebreality stars. Speaking of stars, you'll never guess who I stalked and took pics with....Rumi from Fashion Toast! Loved what she was wearing, she was super tall and so friendly! I also saw Miss Jay, and Jaslene (winner of America's Next Top Model), Ben and Joel Madden, and Angela Simmons from Run's House (she was sitting across from me at the Jose Duran show!). It was all so exciting. New York is fantastic on its own, but you really don't know what to expect during Fashion Week!

Stay tuned for part two of NYC fabulous-ness!

    For everyone wondering Rumi was abnormally tall...j/k, she just had on really high heels, a nice tall hat, and I had on really flat flats.
