It is becoming a tradition for Lydia and I to head to NYC for the RewardStyle New York Fashion Week party. It's always a good time meeting old and new blog friends with a great view of the city. With the change of location for NYFW, the venue for the party changed as well. Instead of The Empire Hotel it was at the Hotel Americano.  I got to see a bunch of old blogger friends (even if it was just a quick hello - the party was super busy!) and met some new ones as well.

Nike was there to help us create our very own NIKEiD shoes! I can't wait for mine to arrive. It takes about a month, but they're custom made to your specifications so totally worth it! I got mine with spotted pony hair and purple accents!

I attempted the curl my hair for the day, but it didn't go so well. I just can't seem to work a curling wand (or curling iron...or any hair tool.)

Notice my little nod to Star Wars in this outfit, I couldn't resist wearing the cute lapel pin Kohl's gave me during my photoshoot last week! Hopefully I'll have the official photos from the shoot to share soon as well as a video!

Dress: Jason Wu (Roundabout Resale), Heels: Dolce & Gabbana (Uptown Consignment), Bag c/o Brahmin (similar), Sunglasses: Chanel (bought in Greece), Stormtrooper Pin c/o Kohl's

And some party photos:

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!)

*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 ;)

It's a three day weekend!! WOOHOO! Let's hope the weather gets better and stays sunny!  This was a jeans week for me, but none of them are regular jeans! I love how much variety there is these days in jeans...printed, floral, textured, brights skinny, flare, etc.  Nothing really exciting happened this week, except for what you'll read below.  There may or may not be a Friday outfit because I wasn't feeling well last night (aka right now, because I'm writing this on Thursday night) and may not feel up to going to least we are a little slow right now so they'll be okay without me. But let's hope I feel better!

Here's an awkward story for your enjoyment: Wednesday when I got to work a guy made it to the door before me so he held it open.  Obviously I was polite and said thank you while smiling.  Then later in the day when I was on my way to the potty (yes...I say potty) I saw him again so I smiled and waved (again, to be polite.  Then as I was getting into my car on Thursday I saw a business card stuck to the window, I picked it up and threw it in my car thinking nothing of it.  I stopped at my parent's for a couple hours and when I got back in my car to head home and I noticed there was writing on the back of the card.  It said:
"Hi, I'm not sure if you have a man, but if you do he's a lucky man! I like your style! If not, I would love the chance to buy you coffee, lunch of dinner. Cell # xxx-xxx-xxxx
Umm...awkward!!! I pretty much died laughing the whole way home. Yes, I know I'm mean for laughing at his expense but I can't help it. Now, this story would be completely different if he was tall and handsome, sadly he was short and awkward...depressing!   It's not like I get asked out every day either, this is  the first time, albeit weird, that I've been officially asked out by a boy.  Why is it always the weird ones?!! Any cute, normal guys out there interested in a date? ;)

Once again it was a very icky week! Spring needs to stick, we've had a few days of amazing weather but those are followed by rainy days. No good!  This weekend I am in for some much needed relaxation, no shopping allowed though because I'm still saving up for Net-a-Porter's end of season sale...whenever that is.  I don't have anything else to say today, so enjoy my outfits!

In other news, yesterday I got a mystery package (see instagram) and when I opened it I saw that it was a Brahmin 'Melbourne - Medium Arno' Croc Embossed Tote from VOGUE (A $245 value)! What a lovely gift to lift up my spirits!  Speaking of gifts, a co-worker gave me an adorable purse necklace on Thursday, it even opens up so I can hide things in it! I was thinking a crisp $20 bill in case I get robbed and they don't think to steal my necklace, ha ha.
