On Tuesday, I arrived in New York for a market trip for work. Typically, work trips are mostly work and a little fun, but I think I have had a pretty good balance this time. The first day we shopped Soho. Shopping is probably one of my favorite parts of my job, and I love it even more now that I am in junior's apparel. Shopping in men's was also fun, especially when I traveled to LA, but I really enjoy knowing women's trends more than men's. Anyhoo, my boss and I spent the afternoon shopping Soho, walking our floor at JCP and then team dinner. The weather was super warm (and rainy - gross)! Dallas was freezing when we left and our plane was delayed because they had to de-ice. I took a screen shot of my phone to send to John because I did not think he would believe me that it was 61 degrees.
Our first day in market was LONG. We were in appointments for 11 hours, none of them were in the same building, we were off schedule the entire time, and it rained all day. My Hunter wellies definitely paid off! Today was way better. We had less appointments and finished much earlier, giving us time to enjoy the city. This is my first time to experience the city at Christmas so we headed to Macy's:) The store was so pretty, and the windows were even more beautiful, but the craziness of holiday shoppers stressed me out. Our next stop was dinner at Pronto Pizza and then shopping at Sabon. Since it was still pretty early we decided to walk around Bryant Park. The tree was beautiful!
We shopped a little more and then headed back to the hotel. I was back in my room at 8:45 so I decided to have a mini spa night with the products I bought at Sabon. Tonight was one of my favorite nights at market ever! I have a few more appointments tomorrow and then I get to spend the rest of the weekend with Ashley. I am SO excited!!!
