{outfit} Locked in the Tower

Yesterday I felt like Cinderella, but not because I found my Prince Charming; I was so excited to head out to NYC but ended up locked in a tower. Long story short * I couldn't get to the city so I missed out on two amazing events. The Brahmin Fall Handbag preview and the Garance Doré for Kate Spade cocktail party, both of which I was really looking forward to for over a week. Unfortunately I didn't have a fairy godmother to save me and get me to the ball. I didn't want my outfit to go to waste so I took some photos so the day wouldn't be a total waste. (The jacket was for when it got a liiiittle chilly at night, wasn't sure I would need it, but always be prepared!)

Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs gift, Heels: MICHAEL Michael Kors (DSW) $35, Bag c/o Brahmin & VOGUE, Jacket: Theyskens' Theory (Nordstrom Rack) $180, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card, Bracelets: Burlington Coat Factory $7, Necklaces: gift, giveaway, giveaway, Watch: Michael Kors

*I got ready and headed to the train station with a slight suspicion that I might not get parking, but I had always been able to find a space before so I wasn't too concerned.  Well I should have been.  The lot was completely full, except for the permit spaces.  So I missed the train and came home.  There wasn't enough time to call my mom to have her get me for the next one and she wouldn't have been able to pick me up when I got back so there was no way to get home.

 I decided to give it one more shot and tried again for the last possible train to get me there in time, but there still was no parking.  Dream over.  No fun events for Megan...and now I was also embarrassed because I replied yes to the events and had to email again to let them know I wouldn't be able to make it. AND I made a big deal about going to them on Twitter, here and Facebook.... *sigh* So I felt like a complete idiot.  Needless to say there were some tears, and I NEVER cry. But then I ordered a medium pepperoni pizza and Cinna Stix from Dominos to cheer up (light on the cheese and sauce, double pepperoni)

UPDATE: I would have called a cab but 1. I am terrified of them, because of people... (social phobia, it's a miracle that I was even going to the city alone) and 2. Whenever my roommate calls them they take FOREVER to get to our house, because they get lost, so I would still miss the train ;)

  2. Awww, that's sad. And that bit from Cinderella made me tear up, haha. I'm sure there'll be another occasion to wear your cocktail outfit to in future... next time maybe take a cab to the station? :(

  4. Oh no, that really stinks. I'm sorry you didn't get to make it - I would say call cabs next time, a bit more costly than driving to the station but you'll never miss a train and have to worry about pick ups. That's seriously so sucky.

  5. That is such a bummer, I know how it can be a pain to get parking at the train station later on in the day.

    that outfit was quite awesome though, love it with the jacket.

  9. Oh no, sorry to hear you couldn't make it. How frustrating, glad you shared your outfit anyways. The dress is awesome great print. I missed an event at Armani Exchange this past spring and I'm still kicking myself for not taking the day off to attend. Be sure to just let it go and know they'll be more events in the future

  18. Hey girl, that's so lame, is there not parking close by so you could walk from there to the station? That's what it's like at home anyway... Next time though! Don't feel silly, these things happen. Anyway, you looked great despite not being able to go!
