we went where? wednesday [nyc]

Wednesday, March 27, 2013
surprise! no outfit post today. there's [unfortunately] not enough time in the day lately.

so i'm hoping you'll forgive me and instead, i humbly give you my ode to new york city from last weekend's trip.

i love new york. the hustle. the bustle. the skyline. the honking horns. [imagine me staring all googly-eyed into space]. it just feels so alive, so there to me. 

this past weekend, i was lucky enough to tag along as one of my best friend's plus one to the big apple.

so sit back, relax, and enjoy the [super high-quality iphone] photos i just couldn't stop snapping:

we stayed at the trump soho [highly, highly recommended] and this was our view from sky-high, at lunch. amazing isn't it? a girl could get used to this!

we were staying for 2 nights, and between the two of us brought roughly 15 pairs of shoes. i wore 6 of mine, so it was obviously right to over pack! [duh]

silly me didn't understand why my friend kept telling me there was wine in the room [at 4am when we got in on friday morning, mind you] until i finally picked it up, and saw this. seriously, the sweetest way to ask! i'm so excited to help her with the wedding [not to mention honored to have her ask me to be a MoH]!

did i mention that the trump soho was amazing? i did? great. well there was a full-on chair in our bathroom.

 and a tub with a view of the empire state building [you know, if you sat the other way and looked off to the side]. we tried waving to the nice people working in the office building across from the hotel, but quickly figured out that the windows were tinted. [hopefully].

there were bellinis and bloody mary's at les amis. and the most delicious croque monsieur. 

 finally made it to the piperlime store and got to try on the tinley road faux leather shorts. [good thing i did because i wouldn't have kept them had i ordered online, and of course, a total bummer because i really wanted them to look good].

 we visited the various designer thrift stores in soho and i said 'hi' to some balenciagas.

 and of course we popped into anthropologie and i ogled this fun bag.

 i got to peruse what goes around comes around.

 and drool over their vintage chanel case. [an entire case].

 while the bug-eyed look isn't for me, i do feel like a total celeb in these bad boys.

 oh and of course we had to dash into dash [and i had to take an ootd selfie in their dressing room while trying on some gorgeous blazers].

 comfort was key to walking around soho on friday.

  i got to test out my new tieks. they were so comfortable, naturally.

we "accidentally" stumbled in to georgetown cupcakes. and split the key lime & salted caramel. heavenly.

dinners in nyc are beyond explaining. we ate like queens. on friday night it was tuna & filet mignon at del frisco's along with the best wine i've ever had and saturday it was tapas at las ramblas - a restaurant just a little bigger than my office at work [so it's waaaaay small] with the most amazing meatballs ever [and i've had a lot of meatballs].  

i even got to rock my little turban headband i bought the other day on our way home. [and clearly, not a stitch of makeup. sorry!]

but wait, there's more. 

friday night, we met some of my college friends at mcsorley's [the oldest bar in the city], which after walking into fully decked out from dinner [and for a while being the only ladies in the place], turned out to be amazingly fun with everyone as friendly as can be. [shout out to cliff from stylitics - how you doin'?] for those of you who are indecisive with drinks, mcsorley's only has a choice of dark or light beer and both are delicious.

saturday night we had to wait before dinner at las ramblas so we ventured into organika wine bar and met the funnest bartender [hey zach!] & wait staff ever. not to mention amazing wine, food [get the polenta roll!], and ambiance. 

i could really, really see myself living in nyc. shopping in soho on saturdays and walking the neighborhoods on sundays. i could get used to the little flower shops that i kept seeing everywhere and the way that the city buzzes. i could easily 'do brunch' at a different place each weekend and meet new people every day. i could. 

[but it's always so nice to get back home.]

til next time, nyc [you alluring siren, you], til next time.

  26. It's amazing how many people think that buying some kind of accounting software will magically turn them into tax and accounting professionals. They don't have any idea of what a capital account is or how the income statement flows through, but if they can keep entering things until they get a clean diagnostic message, that makes them just as good as a CPA.

In order to bill clients and to get credit for work performed, firm lawyers keep track of the activities they perform each day.
