Andddd I’m back! I decided to give y’all a little break from the New York Fashion Week madness before sharing the rest of our amazing trip. Day 3 was definitely different from the rest, mostly in part to the date – September 11th. We had to wake up early this day to be in the city. The streets were completely quiet and now that I think about it, we didn’t run into a single person until probably 10 o’clock. Nobody was on the streets and the sun was not shining yet. It was almost an eerie feeling compared to the normal hustle and bustle that we were used to over the past couple of days. We stopped by a flower shop and all I could think about was where I was at 15 years ago on this day. The feeling of not completely understanding what was going on, but knowing that something was terribly wrong. Well 15 years later and this city and our nation stand strong. We will never forget.
Being that it was the 15th anniversary of September 11th and a Sunday, you could say that day 3 was much more calm than the rest. That being said, we still managed to squeeze in a photoshoot, hair appointment, fashion show and getting lost in Times Square. I may have said calm, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t still a fun and busy day!
9 am: Photoshoot with Laurel Creative– Margret, Britt and I met up with sweet Lauren to take a few photos because lord knows we didn’t already have enough! I am so happy that we got to connect with Lauren because these pictures are some of my favorite from the trip! I’ve always wanted a picture on the streets of NY with a taxi in the background and Lauren made my big apple dreams come true 🙂
12 pm: Lunch at Shake Shack– Yes, I am putting lunch on today’s itinerary because it was THAT good. So good we ate it twice. Literally. You will see that it will appear on day 4’s itinerary as well. If you get a chance to stop by while you are in New York, make sure you do! PSA- just know that the mushroom burger does not in fact contain meat. Total letdown.
2 pm: Explore Times Square– Britt and I had a few hours to spare so we took off in search of Times Square. We stopped by Hershey’s long enough to take a picture with a life sized Hershey bar and then made our way to Radio City Music Hall.
4 pm: Caravan Stylist Studio– Britt and I headed here to get our hair and make-up done. To say it was an experience would be the best way to put our appointment (long story!). My hair turned out great with a super cool, braided updo. You can see more of it here. One takeaway from NYFW this week was to definitely put more effort into booking hair/make up appointments next year because they are so much fun! What girl doesn’t like getting pampered… fo free!!
7 pm: Rosenthal Tee show– This show was located at the pier and was the only show we had at this location. We had hoped to arrive a little early to take pictures but of course we were running late so that was a fail! I had a great time and loved the entire collection! Rosenthal Tee’s line was the perfect mix of feminine, floral and modern.
Britt, Dede, Riane and I ended the night by going to The Smith for dinner and indulging in a few cocktails and truffle gnocchi. This was by far the best meal of the trip and I was so sad because I didn’t even put a dint in my gnocchi.
We had every intention of going out on the town after dinner but after a few cocktails and blistered feet, our LAKE pajamas sounded far more appealing than a bar. I was VERY easily persuaded to call the night early.
If you missed my day 1 and day 2 recap, be sure to check those out, especially if you are interested in attending NYFW in the future! I will have one more post up for my 4th and final day of the trip on Monday and then all of my tips for you fashionistas that are wanting to go one day, so be sure to check back!
