NYIGF: The recap

Yesterday was quite the crazy day. I decided to drive in because I needed to pick up my parents from the airport at 6:30pm. So, I figured I would hit the show, oh and ah and then drive to airport.

Sounds simple right? Ah it never is. I of course left way later than I wanted to. I had work that needed to get done so I just couldn’t leave any earlier.

The show was taking part in two different locations. One section called AT HOME was at Pier 94 and the rest was at Javits Center. Since AT HOME was only going to be open until today @ 3pm. I figured it was best to hit that first.

All was smooth sailing until I tried finding parking, had a huge fight with one of those parking meters that would not read any of my credit cards, felt my hair turn into a huge mass of fizz and oh yea for some reason I get to the show and my camera won’t turn on!!!!!!!

So while I felt oh so chic leaving my house in this little number:

terasina dress
* It was orange and from Anthro, which pretty much meant it had to come home with me regardless of the price.

By the time I actually stepped foot at the show I felt like a total failure, with a sticky dress due to the heat and what I will simply call dewy look on my face to make myself feel better, but let’s face it, it was sweat!

Plus side to things was that I saw a lot of things that loved and vendors that I’m super excited to get trade accounts with!  But I was all alone so I had no one to share that excitement with.

Pier 94 isn’t that large so I was able to go around 3 times, before I had to leave for the airport.

Again one would think this would be easy, but it was the peak of rush hour and traffic was at a stand still at one point I literally felt like pulling over and crying while I was on 2nd ave. But there would have been no where to pull over so I kept going and eventually was able to get to the midtown tunnel and arrive at JFK with time to spare.

Where my Mom greeted me with braids in her hair. Yes folks braids and beads! I died of laughter!

So in the end everything worked out alright. I’m planning on going in again tomorrow to check out the Javits Center and hopefully that will go more smoothly.

To check out actual pictures of the show make sure you check out Habitually Chic and Good bones, great pieces.

Don't worry I didn't get pictures, but I did get a lot of great new vendors that I'm going to share with you.

Stay tuned!

I'm so sorry the day didn't go as planned! I've had more than my share of days that go that way...especially with parking meters {living in SF} and my least fav, traffic! BUT... that dress is really, really CUTE!!!

So sorry you didn't get pictures, cameras never behave when you need them to. But on the bright side, that dress is amazing and I'm sure you looked gorgeous in it.
