Secondly, I am now fashion obsessed as I stayed with my childhood BFF who just so happens to be rather famous in NY because of her mega famous store in SOHO, called KIRNA ZABETE. Now, go get your coffee and check out this video of Sarah and her business partner Beth. It's divine.
Make sure you follow KIRNA ZABETE on facebook and Twitter to keep up with all of the latest runway trends from NY and Paris. Sarah and Beth make fashion fun and accessible. You'll see. They upload photos from all of the private showrooms in Paris so we can see what they like right along with them.
Okay. Back to my trip!
I arrived Monday night and crashed at Sarah's after a glass of vino and some catching up. Tuesday morn I went to visit my rockstar agent, Cheryl, who is even more cute and wonderful in person!!! (She's the gorgeous blonde in the photo) We chit-chatted for a while before the famous Jill Grinberg arrived who was also totally cute and fun. After that, I walked a couple of blocks over to meet SF's agent - the very awesome Joanna Stampfel Volpe (yep - the beautiful brunette) who is just as hip and cool as we all think she is! Jo showed me around her office and then took me underground to introduce me to the NYC subway! Thank Goodness! (I was way too chicken on my own)
From there it was straight over to Kirna Zabete to get Sarah for lunch at my new favorite lunch spot, Le Pain Quotidien. Dee-lish! Then back home to rest up until the uber cool hip-hop class we went to at Sarah's gym. **I know I should have gone shopping at this point but I was exhausted. Midtown wears me out. Even in NYC I'm still a small town girl. In fact, when I go back I will only stay in Tribeca or SOHO hotels. Just sayin'...
An hour or so later it was off to Odeon for drinks and dinner and then home.
Wednesday, I took a cab straight to midtown to do a little shopping before a very secret, but very cool meeting. After buying a military coat at Anthropologie and checking out some other cool shops, I had my meeting and then walked to the 911 memorial. Whoa. I started tearing up and had to leave really quick but was impressed with their plans for Ground Zero. And let me just say that Ground Zero is ginormous!
Then it was back downtown where I played in Century 21 for an hour or so and then back to the west village to meet Agent Cheryl for a drink before dinner at Cafe Cluney. (I hate that I didn't photograph my food like Steph Perk always does. durn)
Cheryl and I were joined by Sarah and another friend, Sarah Beth Turner, who is an up and coming photographer in the city. Check out her website!
then we left and went home, but not before leaving my white coat at the restaurant....
I still don't have it.
I'm hoping Sarah gets it today.
I woke up Thursday to come home and it was snowing!!!!!!!!
