Tea Party at The Plaza

You had me at high-tea, but make it at The Plaza with some lovely ladies and I am there in a heartbeat.

The place is luscious. From the flowers that greet you just past the main entrance, to the decadent decor beyond.
LOVE.

Who can forget the Carrie and Big conversation outside his engagement party “Your girl is lovely, Hubbel”, to the real life wedding of celebrities such as Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
There are many reason why even the “worst” room (broom closet) costs half a monthly mortgage repayment and the wait-list for a Saturday summer wedding is longer than fifth avenue!

A delightful afternoon spent in opulent New York fashion…

Celebrating Columbus Day on 5th Avenue

When in Rome do as the Romans do – right?!?!
It would have been inexcusable not get amongst the spirit, and celebrate Columbus Day (I really had no excuse as it was a work free day for me).
So I did it in the best way I knew how – the all american way with the Columbus Day Parade on 5th Avenue! What is more American than a parade?

The outfit I selected for such an important day?
Zara faux fur vest (it was cold!!!!), 7 For All Man Kind jeans, black Ralph Lauren ankle boots and my cherished Chanel handbag.

It wasn’t just about the phenomenal shopping on this famous New York street – I am pleading the fifth and continue to maintain I went with ALL good intentions to simply watch the annual Columbus Day Parade and then accidentally tripped and fell into Saks, Banana Republic and Armani Exchange (just to name a few)….

    

I walked out of Saks a woman obsessed.
Obsessed and determined that (before the year is out) I will be the proud owner of the limited edition Chanel embellished logo cuff bracelet and some  Christian Louboutin Vampanodo Satin and Suede Bow platform sandals – EPIC!!!!!!!!

    

At $1,900 for the Chanel cuff and $1000 for the shoes, I don’t think my husband or my bank manager are going to be very impressed with a certain shopaholic.
Maybe Santa could be ever so kind????

The loot I ended up with? Well, let’s just say I did ok, but that is for another post.
For now, I’m off to dream of satin bows and intertwined C’s instead…
Goodnight to all.
