Day 7, Year 3: My new life looks out at my former life

image

From the conference room on the 20th floor of the Hearst Tower, I can see my old office building, where I spent good times on those terraces. The Park is straight ahead, and Goldie Hawn has a residence on the left.

I crossed the country two years ago, and I had no idea that crossing the street would have such a sizable impact on my life. And it has!

There are many reasons why I’m so thankful that I crossed the street, both personally and professionally. First, the people! I can keep who I loved at 3CC and now know many wonderful others. Second, the work. I love my work. #LifesGood #LGG3 #NoFilter

Day 6, Year 3: An Evening Run on the Hudson River

image

Summer nights are numbered, so as tired as I was after work, I suited up and ran 5 miles along the West Side Highway.

New York was gorgeous tonight, and my #LGG3 captured this pretty awesome nighttime running selfie. It also pumped out some great jams…

Can you guess my top three picks from tonight’s run?

“Christina Applegate, you gotta put me on… Just the way it goes, I guess.”

“High on believin’– that you’re in love with me.”

“@$!# hashtags and retweets. Hundred and forty characters in these streets.”

Time to hit the showers!

The Barney’s New York Warehouse Sale

Barney's New York Warehouse Sale

It was an exciting afternoon on 19th Street in New York City, between 6th and 7th Avenue. Today, I attended the Barney’s New York Warehouse Sale.

You don’t even have to get all the way inside to see the beauty that awaits. Top design houses such as Lanvin, Balenciaga, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Derek Lam fill the racks, as does the Barney’s New York house label. It is truly something to experience, for men, women, and kids.

My splurges

I was debating on whether or not I wanted to say splurges or loot, and it’s more accurate to call out that the Barney’s New York Warehouse Sale is not giving away top designs. The ivory Lanvin dress that I personally loved was ticketed at $1,895.00, and the furry wedge booties were still $579.00. Having said that, when compared to the full price tag in the Barney’s department store, you are getting a deal for sure. I love what I landed, all for a little under $100.00 per piece.

Olive J Brand “Scuba” pants

We may recall the purchase I crowd sourced last month – the Signal Pink J Brand Neoprene jacket with white enamel buttons. Yes, I did end up getting it and wore it in John Basedow’s and my review of Satisfaction.

John Basedow and I review Satisfaction

Well, I bought the olive colored J Brand neoprene pants today at the Barney’s New York Warehouse Sale. Normally priced out at $297.00 and consistently sold out across the board, I squeezed into a pair of my own today for $99.00.

Barney’s New York Label Navy/Rose Gold cashmere and sequins sweater

Love the snug, soft fit on this one. This piece is pretty. Normally $275.00, I pulled it on for $89.00.

Marni Lamb Leather Pumps

Ok, I saved the best for last. These are so me, and were such a buy. Normally $775.00, I slipped into them for $109.00.

Proud to add it to the Fall collection

As demonstrated in Day 4, Year 3: New Fall Fashion post, I’m trying to build out a new Fall wardrobe piece by piece. So far so good! I’m planning an online sale of my former fashion favorites, so stay tuned on that. I have a ton of high end items that need new homes.

Day 5, Year 3: Six mile run from Chelsea to Battery Park

image

I woke up to the sun shining over NYC, so I suited up for a run on the West Side Highway. The Statue of Liberty looks awesome across The Hudson. The Route Tracker built in to my #LGG3 proves that I’m badass on a Sunday morning. After I hit the showers, I’m going to hit the Barney’s Warehouse Sale in Chelsea.
