nyfw recap

*warning this will be a long post* 
this past weekend i went back to nyc for the mercades benz fashion week. i was so blessed and honored to go. i shared so many wonderful memories that could never be replaced! before i take you through my weekend, i want to say a huge thanks to alanna, jack & drew.

so it was around 5pm that i left the albany trains station to head into nyc. it was about a three hour long train, which wasn't so bad, seeing that i was asleep for about the whole entire ride. when i did arrive in new york, i made my way through the packed pen station and went upstairs on the streets of times sqare to find a cab. after getting in a cab with my 100lb (exaggeration) luggage i headed straight to my hotel; the marriott marquis in times square.
(walking out of the hotel this was what i ran into)

oh. my. gosh. this hotel was one of the most amazing hotels i have ever stayed in! it had about 50+ floors and of corse i was located on the 31st floor, but it was okay because there were about ten elevators (that were super awesome) that were bubbles that gave you a view of the hotel as you were traveling up and down. waking into my hotel room was like walking into paradise. i couldnt even describe it because it wouldnt even serve it justice. although it is very pricey, i highly reccomend it if you are ever wanted to go for a NYC splurge.

after getting settled and taking a shower (my hair was not workin out) i caught a cab and went down to lincoln center to visit alanna. i got there just in time to go see a show, the same designer i saw at last years fashion week. venexiana by kati stern was an amazing show. last year i was so impressed with her collection that i had to come back and see it again. the colors that are in the spring 2014 collection; there were some fabulous pastels, a bunch of neutral colors among others. the textures of the dresses were intricate, there were a few furs, a lot of crystals, sequins and jewels. after the show we went backstage and met some of the models and saw how chaotic it was bask there! this show was amazing, i have no other words to describe the show!

post show, alanna and i were starving, so we headed down the street at around 10pm to go to our favorite, well my favorite resurant; rosa mexicana. oh my god you guys, you have to go there if you are ever by lincoln center. best guac ever! i literally could eat there for days! 
(best . food . ever)

after getting food, we headed on over to my hotel with drew so i could get changed. when we were there we were invited to alanna, jack and drew's friend's apartment. so we left the hotel and headed over to his apartment. this was one of the most amazing places that i have ever been to! we went up to the rooftop and had the most amazing view of the city.
