At FFaNY! For any of you not in the shoe business (…probably all of you) That is not some weirdly brilliant acronym I was cool enough to make up for your amusement, it’s a shoe show held 4 times a year in the city, and one of my bitchin perks of the job. The December show is the ultimate pleasure… it’s the first time our team gets to lay eyes on our new crop of product for the following year (so this time, we’re planning styles for our Fall/Winter 2015 collections). Wishing I could share a sneak peak at some of the eye-candy, but all under wraps for now! (AH THEY’RE SO GOOD!) X)
Aside from the buzz and hustle at the showroom, a bit of time is also spent catching up with a few dear friends local there, enjoying the views and delicacies (so many treats for a small-town girl like me!), and of course, an insanely well-planned wardrobe.
First day of the show, sporting perforated leather joggers (one of my prize investment pieces), a long trench-jacket, and casual compliments. Trust me, when you’re in NYC for a week, some walking shoes are a must! Sorry for all the selfies, I was sans-personal-photographer for the week!
Thoughts on work travel… work hard, play harder, conk out the entire journey back home.
