city guide


My trip to New York was action-packed! Lucky me, I landed at JFK right before a snow storm hit and departed before another. In between meetings, photo shoots and fashion shows (that's me before the Phillip Lim show, above--I clearly have my game face on!), I managed to treat myself to some yummy meals, most notably at the Marlton Hotel, Sean MacPherson's new fashion crowd hot-spot (try the kale salad, sunchokes, and burrata); Terra, a cozy neighborhood Italian in Tribeca; and Bergdorf Goodman's tried-and-true epitome of chicness BG restaurant, where I indulged in a late day lunch for one (this allowed me to gawk at all the fancy ladies and their major handbags, spot Anne Hathaway, etc.), complete with a glass of rose champagne and more kale salad. My Fall 2014 runway watching and trend spotting--picture cropped wide-leg pants, over-the-top fur, more pink, and plaid, plaid, plaid!--inspired some personal shopping, of course. Along with friend and stylist Amanda Ross (below in the cute fur trapper hat), I checked out the recently opened Dover Street Market, Rei Kawakubo's must-see seven-story store situated in Kips Bay, featuring a Louis Vuitton pop-up shop with exclusive pieces, along with masterfully curated selections from Prada, Thom Browne, Gaia Repossi, Saint Laurent, etc. It also houses a branch of Rose Bakery, the British-style bakery/restaurant with a cult following that serves up the most delicious scones, quiches, and pound cakes. I also made pit stops at Topshop, where I snagged this scuba print top and at J.Crew and got these wear-everyday jeans. It was a whirlwind tour per usual, with an extra side of cold, but as always, I loved it.



Fyi, I am standing on a table above i.e. I am not in a dollhouse!

I love everything about your outfit--the sweater, the cropped pant, the shoes (are they pony hair?) and the jacket. The red coat puts it over the top! Will you please share who makes each piece? The outfit is perfect on you! Thank you.
