Benny Ninja Wears A Tutu Around His Neck

This=Fashion's Night Out: Fierce. I can think of no simpler way to describe the wonders that Annie, Emmy, and I experienced last night!

It's fashion week, baby. All the time is runway time!

Emmy was kind enough to document my spur of the moment runway walks and my unfortunate "missing of the train!" Oh noes!

Eeeee!!! (I'm sorry I cannot be more literate at this time.)

After a peek in at Gucci, we went over to Prada...and...

...SAW GRACE CODDINGTON! Suddenly, Annie said: "Is that Grace?" We turned around. My heart started thudding before my mind could comprehend.

Grace was really very sweet, although I must say I felt very incompetent in her presence. I said something to her about the September Issue film but headed up my comment with an apology because I was nearly positive she had heard what I said just about 3,000 times.

Sasha was incredibly gorgeous and had such a warm way about her.

Emmy snapped this picture in Bergdorf's as we waited to get our shirts.
Crowds and crowds and crowds to see the lovely Milo! I got just close enough to take this picture before being ushered away by a guard.
After staring for a bit at the beautiful models, we headed over to Sak's where Annie and I got makeovers!
Annie's green shadow treatment looked absolutely stunning.

Honestly, I totally would have thought she was a mannequin if I hadn't seen her blink.

I was taking this picture when Emmy and Annie said "Sylvia, that...Jade??" I literally sprinted, sprinted, and stopped right in front of her. "Um, hi! Can I have a picture?" She looked me over, smiled, and said "Yes, of course." She was elegant and classy...she WAS JADE!!!!! Do you KNOW how many ANTM youtube videos I've watched of her?!?!?!?!!?!?!??!?!?!? AH! AH AH AH AH!

I had an incredible urge to chase after her and tell her she was the most beautiful "biracial butterfly" (her own self proclaimed term) I had ever seen.
We went into Tiffany's, which was completely beautiful and got iced coffee and petit fours.

At Barney's there were many fabulous people.

There were people offering a photobooth session and free flip books with the final product.

Annie's finger is pointing to one of the photos from our session! After that, we had to run like the wind to Grand Central and make our train. Thanks to my dad's incredible New York way about him (he works in the city and has that unbelievably quick/traffic defying walk), we made it! We wish we could have stayed longer, but what we did see and do was well worth the short time we were there!

Naturally, today we all had to wear our shirts.

I borrowed Annie's skirt for the day and paired it with a vest from Forever 21.

We just had to indulge in some self timers with Emmy's camera after our own photoshoots.


Well, I seem to be on a theme with this hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil thing...maybe I can somehow incorporate into a third post in a row?
In conclusion, life is amazing.
Love to all and good night,

I was treated to this whole experience on Emmy's blog too, but it's great to get multiple versions of the same night! :) Like I said there, it looks and sounds like you guys had a fantastic time! Getting to see amazing people (MILO <3 and Jade is pretty much awesome too :D)... and the window-models really do look like mannequins! The t-shirts look pretty fabulous too, as all of you do, and all of the pictures :) I want to move to NYC!

dvsone said...

You're most welcome, and it's /very/ true - your photography is fantastic! And we could have used all the help we could get, but didn't want to tip off the guy to what we were doing (I'm pretty sure he noticed anyway).

Then again, we are incredibly stealthy.

Whow! Amazing!

The Girl said...

I'm pretty much really super jealous. oh why can't where I live be more fashionable?
The end.

haha, but thank you so much for the comment on my blog.
