I [heart] New York – a post in 3 parts – deux

A Day in the Life:
9:00 Get out of subway station, see a charming cafe where I grab banana bread and a coffee then start walking to my 9 am appt – in the wrong direction – in full tundra wind blowing the “stylish” fur hat right off my head and spilling coffee down my coat for a few blocks until I realize that I’m no longer on the same street as I wanted to be on…
9:05 Realize my mistake and start speed-walking the opposite direction. Throw undrunken, but half gone coffee in trash can.
9:10 I arrive at showroom – out of breath and sopping wet. That’s what happens when you “speed walk” in a down coat. Not pretty. But after that troubled beginning, it actually did get a lot better and these were the appts I had today, which I can only hope will develop into long CVIVIER friendships:
9:20 First meeting with a Euro trend forecaster who was running late too, mercifully – just late enough for me to regain composure.. 😉

10:30 Taxi uptown to Henri Bendels on 5th Ave.

12:30 City bus back to showroom to meet with Carla from Jumelle Brooklyn

2:00 Babble through a highly intimidating meeting in French with Sarah from Colette.

3:00 Taxi to meet Anne at Steven Alan in Tribeca

4:00 Taxi to meet Gigi from Madewell
8:00 Get a virtually unattainable same day Babbo reservation, thank you Simone…so delicious…

11:00 Finally return to the super cute, Roman and Williams designed Ace Hotel
Brush teeth with $10 Aspesi toothpaste from the Ace Hotel No. 8 shop. (I needed toothpaste! And it’s Italian and it’s cute. And it’s really good.)

11:20 Exhausted.

    Isn't that strange, how you can walk out the door in the NYC morning and everything fly into craziness?? Especially when things our blustery, it's TRES big apple. By the way, I love Colette! And so far, I love your NYC posts…!!!
