Yesterday was probably the best day so far of my inaugural NY fashion week – I know I seem like a vet right!? Blame the confidence on my outfit choices. (kidding!) As per usual I woke up with bed head and soft adorable residual mascara, (cute for sure!) and scrolled through my phone planning in my head where I needed to be when in true PR girl fashion. Then subsequently freaking out that I was already running late…
11AM – Makeup c/o Laura Mercier
1PM – Drybar for a quick “Mai-Tai”
2PM – A quick UES change of cothes
3PM – rewardStyle members party at the Empire Hotel
6PM – quick fashionista change
7PM – Dinner with GLAM at Morimoto
11PM – Bed? (ya…right!)
One of the most unpredictable things besides my schedule is the weather. One day it’s nice and brisk out (yesterday) and then there are days like today and Sunday where my leather pants on a rooftop in beaming 80 degree sunlight seemed like a sweaty mess waiting to happen. So thanks the speedy pros at Laura Mercier – I finished a little early and ventured up two escalators to find a quick little number perfect for a rooftop yesterday at Bloomingdales. (Another million and 1 reasons this city is amazing – your chances of finding something on the fly – DAMN good!)

The Meet & Greets:
So party 1 was on the Empire Hotel rooftop bar. How Blair and Chuck right! Well a fun two hours of networking led me to put some blog names to faces. It is funny that out of all the reward Style girls it’s easier to simply refer to them by their blog name. It’s almost like when we registered our URL it was like we were getting a new birth certificate. (the again blogs are our babies – just as much fun and work I am sure!) I got to meet some of the most wonderful girls – Victoria of (VMac + Cheese), Viviana of Fashion Truffles (both are dolls – and NYC’ers!) and then got to rub elbows with my “hair muse” Devon Dyer of DevonRachel and meet Marissa of Style Cusp and Christina of Oh So Glam! Champagne was flowing, feet were hurting, and I was in great company.
Table 3 – At the Glam Dinner w/ (from L to R) – @OhSoGlamBlog, @SparklingSteps, @KristinClarkeFSU, @Juliadzafic, (me) @KatiesBliss, @StyleCusp @TheChiffonDiary The Swag Bag – Thanks to Old Navy, Kerstase, Lorac, Demeter, PopChips, Popcorn Indiana, Godiva, Kate Somerville, Goody and more. Fun in the photobooth with some more GLAM ladies – @BowsandSequins @GlitterGuide @CoralsandCognacs)
Switch it up at night and I headed down to Morimoto where GLAM celebrated their elite network of bloggers and authors. While sitting and laughing with Devon @DevonRachel Lindsey of @Lawoffashion (these two are hysterical) Mara of @maraferreira and Christine of @HelloFashionBlog who walked in but supermodel Molly Sims – guess she was in search of some “dinner” – (just kidding, she looks amazing!) It was so awesome connecting with so of my fellow “blogosphere” friends for a much more “relaxed” night.
Only a few more days and then the parties really all over – well… till February that is.
