Manhattan, part two

Visiting the city yesterday was ten times better than my Monday trip. Why? Please refer to this brief list:
  • Taking the train & seeing Grand Central Station for the first time
  • Seeing the memorial service for the NYC firefighters who recently passed away: it was such a beautiful, moving experience, and the amount of people who came to St. Patricks to watch was heartwarming.

  • Saks, and its shoe level with its own zip code (I felt awkward taking a picture here, so please excuse the horrible-ness of it!)

  • FIT (more on that later)
  • Chipotle burritos; have you seen the size of those things? Delicious!

I visited the Fashion Institute of Technology with my dad for one of its information sessions. After experiencing a casual, "how about YOU ask me questions and I'll answer them"-type session at Parsons, I wasn't expecting much. Instead, what we got was the most informative, well-rounded 2 hours of information I have heard from any college I've visited. More importantly: now I know this is where I want to go. Everything about FIT is perfect, it's almost surreal. And it's right in the middle of the Fashion District!

Today was spent spending more money than I should have, on items that really weren't necessary. I bought a cute little Moleskin notebook to tote around in my purse to replace all of my scrap pieces with numbers and times jotted down, as well as the latest issue of Preen (even though I still have to flip through the ginormous September Vogue; is it bad that I've been saving it for the right time, almost as if it's a special treat?)

I hope everyone has had a very stylish weekend so far!
