In less than a week the Chef & I will be in NYC. I can't tell you why yet (BIG BIG NEWS!) but I can tell you that I am beyond excited. I haven't been back to the city since 2007. Crazy. Right?
The Chef is feeling the nostalgia too. Although he has been back a few times to film he is usually in & out of the city in 48 hours, spending 20 of them in a kitchen. His time to explore is limited.
We are booked on Monday & Tuesday (insert BIG BIG NEWS here) but Wednesday and Thursday we are free to fall in love with New York all over again. I absolutely cannot wait. I have even bought myself a fancy schmancy new outfit to rock in the city. Let me introduce you to my Empire State of Mind:
I saw the shoes first and fell into lust. The Hotness. I've been after a pair of nude heels for awhile but just couldn't bring myself to buy a boring pair of pumps. I decided to go with the gold spiked heels. Why the hell not? It's New York City yo. People wear heels to the gym. The dress followed and although I am not one to rock the floral, this one caught my eye. Plus it's not often I can afford to buy Anthropologie ($40 on ebay yo). They key necklaces are a part of another outfit but I thought they may work nice here, although I may very well bring out grandma Louise's pearls.
You like? I freaking love.
Back to the Big Apple. I need some suggestions of what to do. That's where you come in...
What exhibits are going on next week? Any new restaurants that I absolutely must try? How about shopping? My spot used to be the LES boutiques but it's been years, who knows where I can buy some kick ass clothes at kick ass prices? Would love any & all of your advice.
