MBFW has been an incredible experience, I have detailed out my ‘trend report’ in yesterday’s post. Today I wanted to talk about a different kind of adventure that I had when S&S (Sharjeel & Serena) arrived at Fashion Week. I spent the morning attending the shows and although S&S had tickets to all of the shows they preferred either hanging-out outside or doing their own thing. Once I was done with the shows I joined them.
Our mornings started by me getting ready for the shows. We have stayed at a few places in New York but there is no other place like the Sheraton Time Square. It has an extremely convenient location and you can always take the club level option, which we always end-up doing especially when traveling with Serena, it gives us the peace of mind that we have snacks, milk, water, coffee available at all times. Also the clubroom has gorgeous views of New York City and the complimentary breakfast & horderves are not too shabby either. It is totally worth a few extra dollars for the added convenience (just to clarify I am not getting paid for writing this).
After breakfast i headed to Lincoln Center where I attended shows. After the show one day i went to MOMA which was walking distance from our hotel and if you like modern art then you will definitely enjoy visiting MOMA. I have to admit Serena & I spent most of the time in the bookstores looking at all of the cool stuff like this keyboard bag and some other fun things. After MOMA which is very close to fifth avenue we did some shopping and then made our way to of course the FAO Schwartz where Serena had fun buying things for herself and her new class. We ended the day by picking up some food from street vendors which are well known for their chicken & rice but us being vegetarians we were stuck with falafel & rice which needless to say was very average. There is also a pizza place right next to the hotel which had some great pizza, that’s what we usually munched on every night.
The next few days other then roaming around at Times Square we took a trip to Dumbo Brooklyn. I had been to the area a couple of years back but man I was in for a surprise, you should absolutely plan on visiting this place if you haven’t already. It has changed remarkably in the past few years. The views of NYC & the Brooklyn bridge are marvelous and the atmosphere is very lively. It has a beautiful waterfront restaurant called The River Café which has great food and views. Then right outside get ready to be in line for a few minutes before you can get your hands on an ice cream from the Brooklyn Ice-cream factory. If you are like us and most of the time a pizza sounds better then sitting down in a restaurant then head to the world famous Grimaldi’s Pizza where the lines are insanely long on the weekends and even some weeknights but it is totally worth the wait. Also whether you have a kid or not if you are in the Dumbo area do check out Jane’s Carousel, it has an amazing history and marvelous views of NYC, it was fun to see so many wedding photo-shoots happening as Serena was taking the ride on the carousel.
Overall this trip was incredible in terms of fun and fashion. As always thank you for being on this journey with us!
