A New York State Of Mind–moncler jackets

A New York State Of Mind

As I mentioned last week I had planned and booked a long weekend trip to New York City with my son,moncler jakker so last Friday we both headed out to LAX for a short fun trip to Manhattan. Even though it went by very quickly and we are home already,moncler femme we both felt it was the right amount of days for NYC since we have both been there numerous times before and we have seen all the tourist type attractions at least one time if not more. This trip was all about spending time together to enjoy shopping in the city,moncler store getting inspired by some museum exhibitions and energized by the vibe that is so unique to NYC.

Our flight Friday to JFK was smooth with no delays,moncler homme which was great,moncler hats and we actually arrived in the city in time to settle into our hotel and have a nice dinner. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt at 42nd and Lexington right next to the Grand Central Station and next door to the Chrysler Building,moncler kinder which is one of my favorite buildings in the city. We had stayed at the Hyatt once before a few years ago and thought it was a nice hotel with a good central location so that is why we chose it again.

Saturday started out over cast but developed into a beautiful sunny day and we did a lot of walking in mid-town with our first stop being Barney’s which is a must for any visit to Manhattan,moncler jassen especially this time of the year when they have lots of sales. Well,moncler canada lucky me I scored with a beautiful “Theory” blazer that was on sale,moncler coat I will definitely style it and feature it in one of my future blog stories. We continued on to Bloomingdales and stepped into a lot of other shops in between. It was such a beautiful day we could not help but stop by Central Park for lunch and some photos and then we headed up to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) to check out the Andy Warhol exhibit of “Campbell Soup Cans” and other works.  We finished the day with a delicious dinner at Scalini Fedeli italian restaurant in TriBeCa.  I highly recommend this restaurant for great food and service and value for a prixe-fixe meal.

Sunday was another beautiful day and after a quick breakfast in Little Italy,moncler vest we set off walking through Chinatown and finally to our main destination, Soho. Even though I still really love and enjoy this area, it is sad to see that all the unique small specialty boutiques have disappeared which was one of the main reasons I used to love so much about Soho. Now all the stores are major brands that we all see everywhere and it has lost its unique appeal a little bit now for us. This is the sad result of landlord greed and how small specialty stores can’t survive the high rents and lack of high priced item sales to pay those rents. Regardless, we still enjoy Soho and we had a great shopping day, with a yummy lunch at the Mercer Kitchen and then later that evening dinner at the Balthazar, both restaurants have been there for a long time but I still love eating at both places and highly recommend them.

Monday we explored the Meat packing district and walked some of the High Line, which is an elevated park that is very popular and for good reason. It’s actually an old rail line that has been re-purposed over the past decade as a 1.45 mile-long green space, running from Meatpacking district to the northern edge of Chelsea. It was inspired by a similar project in Paris “Promenade Plantee” that was completed in 1993. We only walked a part of it as it is quite a long walk and we wanted to cover other areas like West Village and Greenwich Village and Chelsea. Even though we got some serious rain and thunderstorms that afternoon, we managed to see a lot and it was great fun.

Our last day was Tuesday but we only had a half day to accomplish everything as our flight was at 5pm. We were in a “New York City State Of Mind” and I really wanted to see this exhibit that is being held at the Met called “China through the looking glass”.  I am so glad we made the effort to get an early start because it was well worth it, especially for me. Look out next week, I will have a full blog story about this exhibit.

We took a lot of pictures on the trip and it has been hard to edit them for this blog story, but I have included some of our highlights below for you to see.  I had a fantastic time with my son in one of my favorite cities in the world and I can’t wait to go back, but I have to say it feels great to be back home.

Looking forward to hearing some of your thoughts and comments about NYC.

0 thoughts on “A New York State Of Mind–moncler jackets”

  1. I ordered this with a little hesitance. I wasn’t sure how this was going to fit….but it fit perfectly. I’m 5’4, on the heavier side at 175 and carry it in my hips and rear. There’s enough fabric to create a slimming effect. I received many compliments the night I wore this. I paired this with red wedges and a red flower hair tie. I even felt very pretty…..so it is absolutely worth the money. (I believe I paid $20.00 for the dress and $9.00 for the wedges.) Money well spent!

  2. This dress (white with black and red roses) is beautiful! I am of athletic build, 5’4, normally wear a size 2 in dresses and the small fit like it was made for me. The length was at an inch below my knees. The material was good quality and not see through (bonus!). This dress can be worn without a petticoat, but looks much better with one. Plenty of room in the underarm area without being baggy. The chest area fit very well, almost too well since I do not have a big chest. If you order a small, and you’re more than a b cup, it might be somewhat snug in the chest. I received so many compliments on this dress. It really is very nice, especially for the price.I would recommend measuring prior to ordering to ensure a proper fit :-)

  3. I wasn’t sure about it when I ordered it, but now that I’ve tried it on, I absolutely adore this dress! It fits perfectly, very flattering. I ordered/tried a few rockabilly dresses for a 50’s party, and the other ones I tried were too high on the waist (actually, the "waist" was on my rib cage) and the neckline sat funny because I needed to have it fit my chest so they didn’t look right. This sits right at my natural waist. The stretch fabric is very forgiving, would work for a variety of body shapes and sizes, including in the chest (which as many of us know, can be difficult!). For a true rockabilly/50’s look, it definitely needs the petticoat, but I think for other uses, you can go without. While I bought it for the themed party, I definitely see myself wearing this for other nice occasions.

  4. The review should be 3.5 stars. Start with positive: fits good, true to size, has enough elastane to stretch about 15% in all directions. Color is true to how it’s depicted on amazon. However, dress is 30% cotton, 65% rayon and 5% elastane. For the dress that has so much synthetic you at least hope it’s wrinkle-free or doesn’t wrinkle easily. Not so – wrinkles quite easily and on pattern-free fabric it’s quite noticeable. Basically, you sit down= wrinkes, you wear seatbelt in a car= wrinkles. Also, imho, for this much synthetic in a dress it’s overpriced. But compared to 3 other dresses that I bought from amazon within a year, the fit is the best and the most true to size, so I’m keeping it. Lots of ironing in the future….

  5. I am 5’4" and 150 lbs. This dress sits beautifully and looks great. It’s machine washable and can put in the dryer, which I appreciate. It’s the perfect length for me, just coming to the tops of my feet. I love it and so does my boyfriend. 33 commentsWas this review helpful to you?YesNoSending feedback…Thank you for your feedback.Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

Super cuteByTPG873on June 17, 2015Size: LargeColor: Blue-a4Verified PurchaseIm 7 months pregnant, 5 ft 5 and about 170lbs, I bought a L and it fit perfect! Super cute, very cool and nice shape.

I bought this to wear to an outdoor summer wedding, and I think it’s perfectly appropriate for that, but the fabric makes it a little dressy to wear everyday, at least for me. It’s a pretty dress, though, and I think it will be great to wear to the wedding & will look attractive in all of the inevitable family photos, since the elastic at the waist is very flattering.The neckline on the dress I received, however, isn’t AT ALL what it shows in the photo. It is EXTREMELY low. The neckline looks like the photo only if you assume that the dress in the photo has a safety pin holding the neckline closed about 3" above where it would naturally fall. Basically, it falls open all the way to where the elastic waist begins. I wasn’t falling out of the top, but it would only have been appropriate for a sexy date with my cleavage-loving husband, certainly not a family wedding. I don’t think anyone would have been looking at the bride if I showed up revealing quite that much of my chest!Also, the dress I received has a flaw in the sewing along one side of the neckline: there’s a place where the line isn’t straight, which is very obvious against bare skin right in the front. It doesn’t make the dress unwearable, but it makes it look a little weird.I’m buying a camisole to wear under this to deal with the extreme cleavage issue, and I’m hoping that the crooked place in the neckline is less obvious against it. If I can find a camisole that will complement the colors in the dress, I think I’ll have a lovely outfit for the wedding I’m attending.moncler weste

  6. The dress is too snug but that is me not the dress. I knew it might be tight when I ordered it, but I ordered it anyway. I’m going to work very hard to fit into it properly in two months. I really don’t want to return it since I LOVE it. I can’t say anything bad about this dress. It’s very comfortable, the lining is a beige knit and the lace is stretch too. I was worried about it being too low cut, but it’s not. Now, i don’t have big boobs so if you do, you might think it’s low cut. I think this is simply a matter of personal taste. Either way, I think it’s just right. It has just a little bit of weight to it so that the dress moves nicely. I thought the length was just right also, although I didn’t put shoes on with it. It was just skimming the floor. I’m 5’5" and 1/2". If I wore really high heels it would probably be ankle length. I read other reviews and there were alot of comments on the length and the static. As I said, I think it’s a good length for everyone. If you’re really tall or short, then you probably are used to making adjustments. As for the static, yes. Very staticy. I don’t know why it has so much static but it does. You can probably rub a dryer sheet on it or use some other static dissolving trick. I also want to mention the packaging. It was folded up neatly into a plastic bag and there were no wrinkles when I took it out! You don’t have to deal with wrinkles or ironing. This is a simple, elegant dress that anyone wearing will stand out in.moncler jacket
