I’m back in New York for the weekend. And, because I’ve watched too many late night news programs about people who post on Facebook and Twitter about travelling only to have their homes ransacked while travelling, I’ll add that I’ve got a male dog sitter, born and bred in Baltimore who is totally in to P90X staying at my place. He and Linus can *take* you There mom, feel better?
Right o. I took the bus up to New York to have dinner with some of the Mood Sewing Network Bloggers. I’ve always wanted to be one of those people who says, ‘Oh. I’m having dinner in the city tonight.’ Heh. Specifically, I met up with Oonaballoona , Ms. Carolyn and Meg from Mood. I’ve met dear Meg and Carolyn more times than I can count, but this my first time on the dance floor with Ms. Balloona. Can I just say, she had me at ‘musical theater’. How can you not love someone who knows all the word to Miss Celie’s Pants from the Color Purple on cue.
They picked this gorgeous tapas restaurant in Chelsea. After walking through the restaurant to be seated, it took me a minute to realize I was outside!
I don’t often post photos of food. But, can we talk about the beauty that is dessert? I am so not in to chocolate. It’s just ok. But, you put something creamy, tart and sweet in front of me and I’m about ready to start licking the plate.
I saw something lovely at Mood but will post more on that later. And, I think I want to go back tomorrow (if I can talk my traveling companion in to it).
Why? Because I left this silk behind
And this brocade
Do you know the challenges of going through three floors of Mood in less than one hour? It’s like a dog at the faucet jut trying to get a drink. And, as discussed, I’m not good when overwhelmed with choice.
I did see Swatch… but he was having none of me
Because on Saturday I’m heading to the Museum at FIT. Not only are they showing highlights from their collection, they have a second exhibit on Ivy League (preppy) style. I may enter fashion nirvana.
