You would think it would be easier to wake up when you are in New York, surrounded by your gal pals, and having the best time of your life.. well that was not the case for this girl. After getting 2 hours of sleep the night before, surviving a full day of walking around the city and then going to bed late the first night.. my body already hated me and it was only day 2. Thank God for strong coffee because I needed an IV of it.
Day 2 was probably my favorite day for many reasons. Number one being that it was the first day I had a real meal and if you know me at all, I don’t skip a meal (like ever), except apparently when it’s fashion week because you are running around like a mad person to make it everywhere on time and you still seem to make it everywhere late. No wonder all of the New Yorkers are so tiny and cranky- now that I think of it they must all be hangry!
Anywho day 2 went a little something like this…
10 am: Dan Liu fashion show– Being that this was my first show of the trip, I had no idea what to expect but this surpassed any expectations! I was originally seated on the third row but close to show time a lady came around and told me I could move up to the front row. I was freaking out inside but told myself to play it cool. I called Margret who was not originally seated front row and told her there was a spot by me, so we ended up sitting next to each other for our first show ever. Love that we got to experience it together 🙂 After seeing the rest of the shows through out the trip this one was not my favorite but it still was a great show and I loved all of the Parisian themed dresses.
On the way to the next event we ran into Christine from the Hello Fashion blog. This was our second “celebrity” blogger spotting if you will and she was a doll! My phone was plenty charged this go around and so I snapped a selfie for picture evidence!
11 am: Shopstyle Social House event– Y’all. Shopstyle knows how to throw down. They had everything from a hair and make-up bar to designer gifting stations to drop dead gorgeous waiters waiting on you hand and foot. I’m not leaving any of the little details out, can you tell? 🙂 Those boys were smokin and they were feeding me rose, so to say I was a happy camper would be an understatement. They had 2 floors of fun which meant double the rose, double the gifts, and double the views. Those views were something out of the movies. The floor to ceiling glass windows that overlooked the Hudson River made for an incredible view of the city and even better pictures! I brought home so many great goodies including the Gigi NY bag that you will see in many of my photos, a pair of Sam Edelman heels, several cute Hallmark cards and tons of photobooth selfies!
3 pm: Namilia fashion show. Needing a good laugh today? Go google the Namilia fashion show. If you are taking my advice, maybe view it on a personal device and not a public computer. It’s bad- like rated R bad. We were so excited to actually be invited to multiple fashion shows that we didn’t even bother googling the designer who we were going to see. Big mistake and lesson learned.
We had planned a blogger meet up and then were supposed to attend the Armani party for the rest of the evening but that whole not having had a real meal thing (because $1 pizza and street hot dogs do not count) just wasn’t working for me. Margret and Britt suggested that we head to Central Park and a nice dinner. You don’t have to tempt me with anything more than good food and I’m in so off we went.
It was the only time of the entire trip that we were able to actually enjoy New York and see something other than a runway. Don’t get me wrong that was what we were there for and I enjoyed every second of it, but my sanity needed a little break from the hustle and bustle. We went to Fig and Olive for dinner and then Serendipity 3 for dessert. Britt and I shared the frozen mochaccino. It was $15 and the size of a small human. We sucked that bad boy dry-it was THAT good!
Before we knew it, 6 hours had passed and the sleep deprivation and blistered feet won us over. We called an Uber back to the hotel and called it a night. I love quality time spent with my blogger babes, especially when it’s in a new city doing what we absolutely love!
If you missed it, my day one recap is here and you can find day three and four recaps up in the next couple of days! Thank you for following along with me!
