New york weekend

9/30/11


























Random tid bits from my trip to New York a few weeks ago. I don't think I took enough pictures to match the amount of fun I had. I visited NY for the first time ever in January and I don't think I was able to appreciate it as much as I could've... the second time around was amazing. Though the first night we came in, it was horrible. Flights were delayed left and right, until finally, hours later, I was able to get into Newark, NJ... where it was pouring like I've never seen it pour before. Pretty scary stuff for a born-and-bred Californian girl, you know what I mean? We got into Manhattan alright though, and the five days after that were perfect. It seemed like we brought the sunshine with us! I was hoping to layer on some goods but the days were a still a little too warm (and sticky) and the nights were just right with light layers. The two coats packed in my luggage stayed put and were entirely useless... oh well. I also got to attend the Rebecca Taylor show during NYFW but as I was rushing out of the apartment I stayed at, I left my camera behind. The collection was sorta wispy, and beautiful, and so appropriate for spring. I was also invited to attend LuLu's blogger brunch/breakfast event but I mixed up the days and unfortunately missed it. I spent a good chunk of my time eating, though... no regrets there. I've got one more little photo diary from NY to post and that about wraps up my trip.

Today is the last day to vote in the Chictopia Influential Blogger Award! Chictopia's teamed up with American Apparel to send one person to New York for NYFW in February. I'd LOVE to go back and actually get the chance to document it right. It's been a busy week for me (I've been able to sleep earlier now, miracles do occur apparently), so hopefully I can get back to your comments later on today. Thank you (!!) for all of your support. Hope you guys have a fantastic Friday and an even better weekend... I'm gonna lay low and get some rest after a little birthday celebration later on today.

Great outfits and photos! I already voted for the Chictopia award! BEST OF LUCK, JENNY <3 Do you edit your photos to make that grainy effect? I've always noticed it, but I guess it's just today that I wrapped my head around the idea that it might be edited. LOL : )

I knew you were going to love NY this time around. Back in January it was awful it was snowing hard everyday. It's great that you enjoyed it here in NY. The pictures look great and so do you. Also, good luck on the Chictopia Influential Blogger Awards.

It's so nice seeing your lovely smile! And how cute is your braided, knit head band thing? Love it. Your fall and winter outfits always inspire me, so I'm pumped about the new season.

Diana Chow said...

Ahhh, this makes me want to go to NYC so badly! I've only ever been during the winter - I'd love to see it in the Spring or Fall!

I have that braided F21 headband, too. It's awesome - the only headband that won't slip off my awkwardly shaped head, haha :)
