Sunday started with an early morning in Chelsea where I attended the Catherine Malandrino winter/fall 2013 installment. I have to say, Malandrino really knows how to dress a woman!
I loved all of her pieces and you could absolutely buy every piece of this collection as your only wardrobe for f/w 13 and be set. I definitely saw many pieces that were interchangeable between each other. And I do love versatile clothing options! I even ran into the creator of New York Fashion Week, Fern Mallis, as she interviewed Malandrino for her Sirius radio show. I just love Mallis!
After strolling a couple blocks of Chelsea we grabbed a greek wrap and headed to Central Park for lunch. I’ve seen Central Park on a previous trip to NYC, but I’ve never actually step foot into Central Park. Since we still had lots of snow on the ground and the sun was shining, the park was absolutely gorgeous! I loved hearing all the kids sledding down a hill near by and people watching as I sat and ate by a frozen lake with the skyline as the backdrop. Seriously, that moment could not have been any more beautiful or serene than it was. Simply perfect. After lunch we explored Central Park before heading back to the hotel to get ready for the evening events.
That night I saw the Joanna Mastronianni f/w13 runway show, which was simply to die for! I honestly felt like she designed her whole line for me. I wanted every single piece in my closet. Right. This. Minute. To make a fabulous show even better, I spotted in the front row and met fashion royalty, Iris Apfel!!! I seriously want to be just as fashionable as her still going to fashion shows in my fab fur coat and cane.
Next up was the David Tlale f/w13 presentation which also lived up to all of it’s hype. More on his, Mastronianni and Malandrino’s collections (with lots of photos) in MCM’s NYFW-MBFW official coverage coming very soon!
While in my never-ending quest to try new things, I decided I wanted to try Indian food. I asked for dish recommendations on Twitter and Facebook and received a lot of meal suggestions. We ordered three different dishes from Indigo Indian Bistro and frankly, all three of them were horrible. Neither of us could even finish them. Maybe it was just that this particular place is bad or maybe I really do hate Indian food, but I will say it’s not an ethnic food I will be giving another try for a while. Next on my list is Thai food though. Onward and upward as my journalism mentor would say.
As for my outfit of the day… I wore faux leather leggings from Forever21, a cream blazer and beige and gold sequin halter both from The Pink Tulip Club and my trusty black heel boots.
