Wednesday night, after classes, I arrived in New York. Thursday morning, I started singing Spongebob lyrics:
"Mr. Sun came up and he smiled at me
Said "it's gonna be a good one, just wait and see"
Jumped out of bed, and I ran outside
Feeling so ecstatic, satisfied..."
I got dressed and went downstairs to meet with the coolest cats ever! @jess, @nadia, and @chrystalatpolyvore were all there and I was so happy (yet very shy)! Then I got to meet fellow members, @karineminzonwilson, @painthead, @fuur, @mauriciofredes, @tabithasue (aka @cutandpaste), @julietav, @amber-nicki-rose, @ashley-rebecca, and @nikkeeb. And yes, they're just as stylish in real life as their sets! I'm sort of a quiet person, so sorry if I wasn't too talkative. I was sort of star-struck! Haha.
After we ate brunch and were given beautiful gifts from our generous sponsors, we got our hair done at Blow. A group of us went out to shop, and we all got goodies at Marc by Marc Jacobs/Bookmarc.
(Around this time I spotted some very beautiful people who were probably models and I, being an average American teenage girl, squealed.)
Later in the afternoon, everyone was dressed in their utmost stylish! Then a beautiful white stretch limo came to our hotel to pick us up to the @polyvore office! WOW!
It was superb! I loved meeting some of the team and eating the adorable little cupcakes (I must have eaten four or five, haha). They showed us a super duper cool new feature Polyvore will be launching soon and I am SO excited for everyone to use it! :)
After the visit, we all walked down to the @woolite Washed Boutique through the FNO madness! It was the coolest seeing everyone in their most stylish all lined up. At Woolite, we got to see some products, eat some snacks, and talk to Jaqui Stafford, Cat Deely, and other fashion industry people.
Truly an unforgettable day, extra special big thanks to everyone who made the trip possible! <3
