NYC: Trip highlights

Highlights of NYC this trip:
–Quick shopping trip to Century 21 to buy a spring coat–flying in from Southern California, I forget to pack a jacket. Eyeballing the European designer clothes is pure fashion porn.
–Seeing Eleanor and Parris and their friends/roommates Peter and Tom in East Williamsburg–the industrial neighborhood was fascinating, and I loved hanging out with them. Despite the 20+ years difference in our ages, the evening flowed.
–Our visit to Dia: Beacon on Sunday. Getting a personal tour of the space from David Ross, my business partner and former Whitney and SF MOMA museum director, was
a treat–and the Richard Serra sculptures were amazing.
–Family: Seeing my sister and her family.
–Fashion observations: Standing on 6th Avenue one morning watching women head into the office building–everyone in tailored black, grey or camel, burgundy or chambray blue accents, most of the ones in skirts also wearing spike heeled knee-high boots, the ones in pants with high-heeled shoes. Handbags crisp and tailored, with small canvas totes for the files–no spring prints or floral dresses here, not yet.
–Work: The new project that brought me to town.
