New York Fashion week 2013 or The best 30th birthday EVER!

It's been exactly 10 days since I got back from one of the most exciting trips in my life. I guess that's the time I needed for the whole experience to sink in. Yes- I have been to NY Fashion week..I have been to NY Fashion week... I have been to NY Fashion week...

I cannot start telling the story without mentioning the suitcase incident.
I think it took me about 2 weeks to pack for this trip physically and about 2 months to pack mentally.  Each outfit for each day and event was thought through 10 times and I took 10 pairs of shoes. But the world had different plans for me.. Out of everyone traveling on our flight, I was one of the only 3 people who did not receive their suitcase. I have a fashion show to attend in a few hours and nothing to wear, no shoes, no make up, nothing to pull my hair up with NOTHING. 
Thank god NY is a second home for me and I have amazing friends and family who came to the rescue. 

So this was the feeling when I first arrived at the main tent in Lincoln center. 

 We met up with the amazing Ruth Finley who is the fashion week schedule girl (at 93) and she greeted us with 2 tickets to the Tadashi Shoji show. 

 Full of excitement from a wonderful start to this week, We then rushed downtown to the "Honor" show. This show was my favorite. It was held at a Gallery by the Hudson river and I had first row seats. The Clothes and Fabrics were dreamy though I had no battery on my phone so not many photos could be taken. 

And look who I ran into :) The lovely Erin of Calivintage who's been a virtual friend of mine for a while. Nothing could hide my excitement, not even my huge smile.

The next few days were full of shows and excitements. Running around the city I once lived in and love so much.

The beautiful Liz of Olive my love, who has been a virtual friend for a while and I was lucky enough to meet her and spend some time with her. 

I also had a wonderful time visiting my favorite designer in NYC, Nina of Family affairs
We too have been virtual friends and it was so lovely to finally meet her in person.
(And try on her whole collection)

Last but not least was the dream come true visit to the Orla kiely shop in Soho. All i wanted was to see her things outside the computer and to feel the fabrics. And oh how amazing that was. 

I really must thank my great husband for making a long life dream of mine come true. He arranged everything and made this unbelievable trip an unforgettable one. I am a lucky girl.

In Reverse

I've been wanting to go to Ron Arad's exhibit "In reverse" for a while now and I knew my husband would enjoy it too. 
So last night we had a museum date and oh how lovely it was. We went at 9 PM which was a great idea cause we practically had the museum to our selves. 
Ron Arad is so manly in his design esthetic. Amazing.
