Wow! Steven and I walked around all day today in Manhattan. First we walked around the Village to 8 Street. 8 Street isn’t what it used to be. They used to have fantastic shoe strores with some really great deals and now it seems like slim pickins’. Then we walked towards Chinatown, and then Soho (where we went to this great clothing store called Top Man – sort of like a cross between H&M and American Apparel). The store really wore me out. There was so much to take it and the prices were so affordable. There were lots of great deals.
Then we met Steven’s friend, Adam for dinner in Chelsea. We went to a really great Thai restaurant, where I had eaten at the last time I was in New York. I forget what it’s called, but it was very trendy and graphically saturated with blown up larger than life photos and fun design graphics. Even the bathroom was a design statement with orange glowing plexiglass walls and a ticker tape message running through one of the walls.
I ran into David (of DAMstyle.com) in Chelsea. He wasn’t feeling so well, and I hope he feels better for Sunday brunch.
Steven and I walked from Chelsea to the St. Regis Hotel in Midtown, where we are staying. It was a very loooong walk on a humid and windy night in New York City. I am worn out and ready for another great day in NYC tomorrow. Yay!
