Finally got to writing this post about my NYC trip from October 9-11. I stayed with my childhood friend who currently goes to NYU. His apartment was in East Village and it was such a cute part of the city! It was just minutes away from his campus and Union Square.
The highlight of my whole trip had to have been my indulgence in food. The first night there I finally got to try Eddie Huang's BaoHaus which has been on my bucket list for the longest time. I got the chairman bao (pork belly) and the taro fries. Who knew taro would make deliciously, crisp fries? Not me! But if you ever find yourself there, you need to order them because they make for the perfect side. After, we of course had to get dessert so we dashed across the street to a Japanese creperie restaurant and I got the green tea truffle crepe.
Saturday I was chosen to be a model for Her Campus College Fashion Week and had to be there all day from 12-9:30pm. Although it was a lot of waiting around, I was glad I went because I was able to network with the sweetest blogger girls and had my first (probably last) experience walking on a runway! I now give so many props to the models who do that for a living. It's not a piece of cake!

On Sunday, I met up with my internship boss and we attended the New York Bridal Fashion Week trade show. This is always a ton of fun and I got to preview some amazing wedding gowns for the upcoming season. We saw a lot of cape action, taupe, and separates (crop top & skirt).
This is when I realized I was an awful blogger. I thought I took a lot more photos than I did and was disappointed in myself. Then again, I was having so much fun that I didn't even remember to whip out my dslr and snap a few shots. I guess that means I enjoyed myself, haha. To be honest, New York City is amazing and I consider myself an urban person, but it's just a lot to take in. I am not sure if I could see myself living there anytime soon. By the time the weekend was over, I was glad to be back in Philly where everything was familiar (and cheaper)! However, it was a good time and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to go!
