destination: new york

aritzia jacket, forever 21 leggings, hunter boots, celine bag

Went to NYC for a few days for some TechCrunch conference for Alex's work. Weather in New York is so so strange. Wasn't really sure what to pack but of course it had to rain the whole entire week I was there. The weird part was that it was really humid so it was really difficult to dress. Finally caved and purchased some Hunter Boots. Searched for the Jimmy Choo versions and had no luck. Fortunately they did have my Celine bag I've been searching high and low for. Was ready to settle for the mini and you have no idea how happy I was to find the last micro in stock. I don't even care if I'm *late* in purchasing this bag, I don't think I've ever loved an article of clothing/accessory as much as this. Next runner up is this jacket. I could live in it and is currently my favorite thing to wear right now.

Contents of my bag:
                      1.) Feragammo wallet that I'm finally going to put back into use
                      2.) gum
                      3.) iPhone
                      4.) chapstick, lipstick, gloss, Jo Malone perfume sample, vitamins
                      5.) Dita sunglasses
                      6.) Earphones

Congrats to Alex and his team for winning best start up at the conference :) Other highlights from the trip were dinner at Blossom, Pure Food and Wine, and ABC Kitchen. Should've taken more photos along the way but was so bummed of the rain. Still was able to shop, meet old friends and even though I had 12 bug bites on my feet.. after 3 doses of Benadryl, loads of hydrocortisone ointment and rest, I managed to walk the next day all over the Meatpacking DistrictThe Highline and Times Square. Was a fun filled trip and as much as I love New York, I still think SF rocks.
