I'm back from New York! Have been actually for about a week, but I just haven't had time to post. My summer plans entail being a cheerleading camp instructor for FCC so I have been doing nothing but cheerleading since my return. Anyways.. about our time in New York. It was of course FABULOUS. We flew up last Wednesday and came home Saturday. Emily was sick :( but she toughed through it. I knew something had to be wrong when she sat down in Juicy! So we sent her to the hotel room to sleep, and in the morning she was better. We shopped in all the typical places, 5th, Madison, Lexington, SoHo, etc... saw plays- Shreck and the Marvelous Wonderettes, and dinned at places including the Russian Tea Room, and Serendipity. We found this adorable tea place called Alice's Tea Room (I mean c'mon, an Alice themed tea room?!?!!!!) but the wait was over an hour and half and Emily was starving. So it's on our list for next year. Thanks to Kelly from Moon and Lola, we were told about this extraordinary vintage ribbon, tassel, fabric, etc shop called Tinsel Trading in the Meatpacking District. Needless to say, we came out with many goodies for Olde Alice. Me and Emily are working on a new collection and hopefully it will be ready by mid June. If you're interested and want to know more, feel free to email me! Well I hope that everyone is having a great Memorial Day Weekend.. we went against the trend and headed to the mountains instead of the beach.
Be Well! xx Rachael
