Millions of text messages, photos, and life events shared, yet we had only met in person once, for a blog collaboration during NYFW. She’s a mover and shaker, working as a fashion editor and stylist, dressing her clients across the globe. From Australia, London, and finally back to the US, my blogger bestie, Haili Pue of All Ze Details, is a tough one to catch. She’s a jet setter; always on the move.
It was the height of New York Fashion Week, and we attended one party after another, reviewing the collections of several clothing brands. The very best part about these fancy soirées, is being dressed for events. Ah, yes…one step into the Lafayette 148 showroom, and my little heart skipped a beat. A million beautiful outfits, and I couldn’t wait to pick one. With just one glance, I spied spectacular prints, stunning silhouettes, and a color palette that made me swoon.
This weekend’s sunshine in NYC, had me anxiously shopping for new additions to my spring wardrobe. I love sunny afternoons in the city, wandering from store to store through my favorite neighborhoods, with no real agenda but to enjoy the day. Every day of my work week is scheduled basically to the minute, and although I love being busy, I do find peace in quiet moments by myself.
I recently had the pleasure of attending Yumi Kim’s Spring 14 Press Preview. The event was held in Yumi Kim’s brand new showroom, which was just as beautiful as I imagined. I walked into a room full of flowers and a colorful candy bar. The Spring 14 Collection brightened the entire space.
Soho is one of my favorite shopping destinations in New York City. It has a great combination of designer stores and lovely boutiques. There are charming coffee shops and trendy restaurants around every corner, if you need a break from your retail therapy. My shopping trip to Soho was the perfect opportunity to wear my new Yumi Kim, Hawaiian print romper, which I found at Wink NYC, one my favorite boutiques in the city. I love all of Yumi Kim’s styles, but above all, I adore her gorgeous, vibrant prints.
