Brooklyn & LES

After my NYFW fix, hanging out for the weekend in Brooklyn and the LES (lower east side ya'll) was all we wanted to have on the agenda. Loved experiencing a rooftop party in Willamsburg (super popular in that area), looking across at the city seeing the 2 twin tower lights beaming into the night sky....the following day was Sept 11th, marking 15 years. (we did also take an afternoon to visit ground zero, which was eerie and emotional as one can imagine).  Back in Brookyln, there was late night Karaoke, saki bombs, amazing brunches and dinners, shopping, checking out the new Ludlow house in LES and seeing my first Cat Cafe - meow!!  Best part of course - seeing our buds we rarely get to see. 
ps. I love that you have no need to work out in NY since you're walking 10+ miles a day.

Was lucky to not only be backstage at the Monse show at NYFW, but to also see my favorite Aunt in action (who was helping produce the show). When IRIS walked in we all about fainted - what an icon and true artisan. That was a highlight - I totally plan on wearing a bright boa when/if  I'm ever 97! Also fun seeing one of the models I use to rep in LA now working in NY and on the show - we stared at each other for a minute backstage before assuring ourselves that it 'was' the other person! It had been 5 years since my last Nyfw ...probably my favorite time of year in the city (aside from Christmas)..the energy is like none other...
