NYC Round Up

Champagne

I’m heading back to my beloved Santa Barbara today. My project manager, Leah, and I had a really quick, fun and productive trip to NYC. The city was steaming hot as we trucked to lots of meetings for my new apron line during the day, and gulped too much Champagne at night — really, can you ever have enough Champagne? The answer to that is yes. Don’t ask.

It was so hot, we had to find a Santa Barbara oasis.

and these too...

After we finished up our last meeting on Thursday afternoon, we decided to make a stop at The Met. The Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit was calling our name. It was definitely worth the 20 blocks in 100 degree heat to get to those steps. Sadly, I got tapped on the arm by security mid-shot, so I don’t have many photos. But if you happen to be in New York and get the opportunity, you must go see the exhibit! Being surrounded by all the beautiful pieces of art by these two pioneers of fashion and a quick trip to the rooftop garden was a fitting end to our time there. Well, and maybe a glass of Champagne too. Cheers!

This is the photo that got my camera shut down, but it was worth it.

    Interesting skirt design. Years ago I did some pioneer re-enacting and made a calico skirt with the same details from a pattern dating to the 1860′s. You know what they say, “Something old is new again.”
