The Fashion Rabbit

Vintage wool faux fur walker, Citizen Ava denim, Frye Harness boots, Louis Vuitton Speedy 25, Chanel nails in Black Pearl.

I woke up early on Saturday with a pleasant Valentines day surprise–a day trip to the city!  Ian and I barely made it to the bus, and slept until we arrived around 10am.  I have to say, it was nice to not arrive in nasty times square at 2am for a change!  We dined at a fancy brunch place opposite Bryant Park, and then decided to explore some unfamiliar areas before going to Lincoln Center.

The weather was perfect to say the least, and I was so comfortable in my latest purchase, ($10 from second time around), and blue Chanel nails.  We mainly hung around Greenwich, and window shopped on Bleeker street.  It was my first time at Bookmarc, the new Marc Jacobs bookstore, which was a bit of a disappointment–I mean urban has a better book selection, and from what I saw, they pretty much moved all the crap from the Marc by Marc store, you know the keychains and shit and stashed it in whatever space was available.  I guess I was disappointed because I had always imagined it like a coffee shop on capital hill, where you could stay a while?  There was no place to stay here.. too many people (asians).

We continued to window shop around fifth avenue, and took many photos, it was so great to just see display done well for a change.  People were actually crowded outside of Louis Vuitton, it was pure madness but still really awesome.  I want to work on displays that attract people like that.. the whole spectacle of display is what interests me the most.  We finally made it to Lincoln center, (we didn't see any celebrities) and we ate dinner at a hotdog stand! It was a nice relaxing day off of work, and I was so happy to spend it with Ian.
