I love New York City. Sure sometimes I complain about the crazy real estate prices and loud construction noises, but often times I get little reminders about why I love the city that validates my reason to move here. Case in point: last Friday. I was having a pretty tough day at work, still at the office at 5:30pm (by the way, my office has summer Fridays so pretty much everyone is gone by 2pm). I was feeling pretty down on myself when I noticed an email in my inbox letting me know about the Daniel Silverstain sample sale. My immediate thought was: who the f is that? Well after a quick search online, I found that he is very talented designer. I love the clean lines and pseudo-androgyny of his design. Plus they will have champagne at the event, so can’t hurt, right? Well actually it sort of hurt my wallet — the kind that hurts real good. I didn’t quite buy the store, but I did snag myself the carnival sleeveless t-neck (featured on this blog) and the neo-mesh t-shirt. What can I say, nothing fixes Friday working blues like a little retail therapy.
