March 10, 2013


March 4th was my bff Julia's birthday and as kismet (or persuasion) would have it, I was back in the US to celebrate. Julia and I ventured up north to the city that never sleeps and the other key player in our bff trio, Liz, was our gracious host. The three of us first visited the Fashion Institute of Technology's museum where the Shoe Obsession and Fashion & Technology exhbitions were on display. It was hard not to drool at the designer shoe-candy and cringe at some of the towering heel heights. And by far, the most fascinating display was the clothing made purely of harvested sheets of bacteria (a bit of shudder-inducing Buffalo Bill moment). Makes you wonder what fashion will be like 50 years from now... I'm still hoping that will look like some sort of holographic Jetsons and Marie Antoinette mash-up.

My point of fashion (FRUITS magazine, anyone?) was my high contrast neon pink and neon orange color collar combination. Say that five times fast.

The rest of the weekend was filled with delicious food (mocha-rubbed duck, Laduree macarons, & scrumptious Doughnut Plant baked goods), epic Karaoke, some light shopping, a brief photo shoot (see above) and a lot of obnoxiously loud laughter. I miss those girls already!
