Voici some pics from my recent trip to NYC. Of course the main purpose of the visit was to attend the Fancy Food Show, but my colleagues and I managed to get out a bit during the off-hours and enjoy the city. Some of the best parts . . .
Staying at the Algonquin Hotel & finding this picture of Dorothy Parker in a stairwell. She is rocking an amazing beaded lariat-style sautoir.
The Fage yogurt booth at the food show. Yes, those are samples.
Having breakfast at The City Bakery (two days in a row!) Their marshmallow mobiles were pretty outstanding. And the pretzel croissants? I brought seven back to Michigan with me. The TSA guy said "Wowzers" when my backpack went through the security scanner.
Once Upon a Tart.
Ordering a little vial of my favorite perfume (it was mixed before my eyes by a lady named Millicent) at Le Labo. They also had a card catalog/dresser thingy in there that was unreal.
Wearing a pretty dress and a pretty necklace out to dinner one night. My friends were kind enough to snap a picture of me and my 20s necklace in Time's Square.
