September 12, 2016- Flight and Show Day!
The Nexuss line was crazy like complete insanity. I got in the line and then switched over to the American Express line bypass and was now at the front of a line of about 1,000,000 people. Breezed through security and perched my fashion week self in the lounge.
Morning: The plane ride was fast and I needed the sleep.
Afternoon: Arrived in New York and took a pit stop at the American Express Centurion Lounge for lunch. UBERed to my suite at the Upper West side of New York. Freshened up and prepped for a fun day.
Late Afternoon: Went shopping at Barney’s. Didn’t buy anything but really enjoyed the vintage collection they had displayed. I also saw this red YSL suede heart shaped fringe bag. OMG. It was perfection. Met up with my friend Tuxedo Sergio and Kara Alloway, chatted and shopped some more. We then went our separate ways to get ready to head to the Zac Posen Show
Late Late Afternoon: Took a limo from the Metropolitan Hotel to Spring Studios. Arrived to lines of people waiting to get it in. We were quickly escorted to a specific line. While I was in line:
- I met blogger/ personality Marianna Hewitt. Dream come true.
- Saw Model Coco Rocha, patiently waiting to enter the show as well.

Mid-Morning: Went to the bank to check my coinz and then walked around Times Square and took photos. Then I waited for Saks Fifth Avenue to open and browsed through the shoe section.
