me, bybes (emily), sienna and little bo
friends bybes and sienna were in ny for work and family visits so i decided to spend 29 hours in nyc to be with them ... among other things
---like finding fabric for a wedding veil for the upcoming wedding of my bro-in-law and soon to be sis-in-law. ever fabric shopped in the fashion district of nyc? a whole experience in itself!---
what i did:
browsed the upperwestside
sat in central park on a more-than-beautiful spring day
met lovely friend mala in the west village for delicious westville food and great conversation.
met with bybes for banana pudding from the original magnolia (skip the cupcakes, get the pudding) and sat and talked at the bleecker playground until midnight
sleepover in brooklyn (thanks bybes)
fabric shopping in fashion district
a walk to chelsea then to flat iron
eataly with bybes, si and bo. take out pizza. mmm. we got to eat it in madison sq park park just before the sudden downpour of rain
union square: shoemania, strand books, brooklyn industries. all great places.
famous person sighting*
soho shopping. canal street.
bybes had to leave to catch her plane. so sad.
a trek to the upperwestside for levain bakery. si, bo and i shared a cookie and then had to say goodbye. so sad.
thanks so much all you ladies. it was just the perfect 29 hour daydream with you.
*famous person sighting:
the funny story---
bybes said she really wanted to see a famous person before she left nyc.
so si and i said that would happen in soho. and as soon as we were one half block south of houston street (soho) i spotted her: and said, FAMOUS PERSON, FAMOUS PERSON, FAMOUS PERSON and couldn't remember her name. i said, FELICITY, IT'S FELICITY! Keri Russel.
si and bybes only saw her from the back... so bybes literally booked it so she could catch a glimpse of keri from the front.
hilarious. beyond hilarious.
and yes keri was gorgeous in person and had just done a ton of shopping.
