5th Ave

Coat - Forever 21, Jumper - Vince Camuto, Jeans - Simply Vera Wang, Boots - DSW, Tote - Target

I meant to finish posting about my NYC trip last week, but I've been rather distracted lately.  I've been waiting to hear from FIT, and I was suppose to know no later than today.  Unfortunately, after contacting them today, I've learned that FIT has had a record number of applicants and hasn't even started looking at my application yet.  Yeah.  And I still have to make my decision by May 1st.  Secondly, I've been watching a lot of Downton Abbey lately on my laptop -- I'm addicted.

While I was in New York, I did plenty of shopping, but I think my favorite shopping day was when I spent it on 5th Avenue.  I stopped by all of my favorite places: Zara, Topshop, H&M, and Forever 21.  Along with those, I also went into Uniqlo for my first time; I thought it was such a fun shop - they sell bras in bags ("bra in a bag" - what I told my mother it should be called), which, for some reason, I just find hilarious.  All hilarity aside, I picked up a nice jumper for myself, even though it's getting pretty warm now.
I decided to wear something comfortable since I would be doing a lot of walking.  I started the look around my velvet boots; a favorite pair of mine.  I then worked my way up by wearing simple black jeans and black/grey and white fuzzy (and non-fuzzy) jumper.  By wearing neutrals else, the shoes pop out even more.  The week I was in New York, it was surprisingly chilly (actually colder than where I live), so I wore my grey coat.  This coat was the only coat I brought with me on the trip, but it actually worked quite well because the color and shape went with everything I brought.  (I originally was going to bring my pastel blue coat, but at the last minute I switched to this one.)
After a long day of shopping, my mom and I went to Anthony Bourdain's restaurant "Brasserie les Halles."  I had the steak frites, and it was quite possibly some of the best food I've ever eaten.  Even the side salad was delicious!  For dessert, I had a rich chocolate tarte, while my mom had profiteroles.


Hopefully I'll hear from FIT soon, until then I'll try to back on track to blogging more regularly.
