New York Fall Fashion Week

Yeah, so I won a trip to New York thanks to my son's design skills. While there, I met some people with whom you might be familiar:

Project Runway Designers and Models Cast Pics   ME! and Althea Harper

ME! and Malvin Vien   Carol Hannah Whitfield, ME, Mitchell Hall and Christopher Straub

A picture is indeed worth a thousand words, and you can imagine how I swooned and OMG!ed and basically had "I LOVE you" on repeat coming out of my mouth as I met Project Runway designers and models (and folks like Nina Garcia - squee!) So I won't recap that in excruciating detail, although you can peruse my whole set of pics to get the feel. Let's just say it is quite surreal to watch a show on a large television screen along with the people pictured in said show.

As for New York, the stories involve how a lady dropped a blanket on my head accidentally, and how the flight attendant on my way back asked me, "Just ONE?" when I requested an alcoholic beverage.

And the $1000 omelet that I thought the hotel people were joking about when I checked in, but upon reading the breakfast menu, saw there was indeed an omelet for $1000 (with caviar.) I ordered the Crepes Suzette instead.

Although I only drove through my old neighborhood briefly, it was nice to be back in New York City, even for a day.

It was a whirlwind trip, but the experience of a lifetime.

(Get it... Lifetime?)

Hey Kari!

It was so awesome meeting you! Sorry it was all so brief, but I loved it. It was a blast hanging out and experiencing it all together! Oh, and I'm SO jealous that you got a picture with Carol Hannah! I predicted her to win but never got the guts to go and ask for a picture.

Anyway, loved hanging out! Awesome post! Muah!
