Day one: I made it to NYFW! My very own Superbowl. Day one here in NYC was long as expected, but a just a little bit more exciting than usual.
I came into town a bit earlier than planned to meet with some friends at Marriott to learn about their Marriott Rewards (looking for an easy way to earn and redeem points--use it!) and their new Flash Perks program, which brings you instant fun on your travels with exclusive offers and experiences, especially for your trip.
No one travels to-and-from quite like me these day, and you know I like to do it in style. I was beyond thrilled to test out a few of the newest "perks
", a helicopter ride over NYC! I was so happy for this experience and said very little during my time up in the sky. I felt overwhelmed with the beauty in seeing my favorite city from that distance and I won't soon forget it.
After the trip I darted (It wasn't glamorous) across town to meet the Century 21 team for a full day of filming and photos to prep for an upcoming project (stay tuned Philadelphia). I was super happy when the makeup artist liked my blue bottom liner and allowed me to rock it for the entire shoot.
After a long day under the lights I made a pit stop at the Schutz preview (my luggage still in tow, mind you). And finally made it across town to Lincoln Center for a very late dinner with some fashion favorites.
Thank you to the Renaissance for having me in a place I rarely stay, Times Square. I was in the middle of the action, but felt like I was miles away when inside of the serene hotel. I enjoyed cocktails in the lounge overlooking the lights, an amazing Flash Perks dinner (took a friend to The Heath and if you haven't been- that's a whole other post) and am even using my perks to visit the MOMA later in the week. I'd say I'm off to a decent start.
Because of a very busy day, full of activities, filming, and a hotel transition, I kept my outfit basic with cream and white. I chose to wear a dress by ASOS with cutout sleeves, black BCBG sandals, a Mulberry bag and mirrored shades by River Island, and minimal jewelry.
If this is all that happened on day one, I'm ready for the rest of the week. Bring it NYFW.
And, if you want to have the same perks as I have this trip, you can buy them on the Flash Perks site this Thursday at 12pm.
