...A Visit to the Statue of Liberty!

Three months ago my boyfriend, Alex, and I made reservations to go to the crown of the Statue of Liberty and today was the day that day! Alex, a native New Yorker, had never been and of course, Me, a New-New Yorker had only dreamed of going to the famed green lady. Our story begins like so many immigrants with a boat ride...

We then disembarked and got to see Lady Liberty up close and personal...

...And because we made our reservations three months ago, we were able to snag Crown tickets which allowed us to climb the three hundred some odd stairs into Lady Liberty's head...

Stairs, Stairs, Stairs...

...and more stairs!

Finally we reached the top and into...

...Her Brain!

Her windows to the world! So Steampunk!

The best part about finally reaching the crown was that, for a whole ten minutes, we were the only people there! And believe me, that is saying something for a New York tourist attraction! Turns out that the Parks Department only allows 250 people a day to have crown access! It was indescribably special.

Me in the crown!

Not since 1916 has the torch been open, but you can see the old torch in the lobby on the pedestal.

I would like to tell you that I reenacted that scene in Splash where Deryl Hannah arrives nude from the ocean on to Liberty Island but... if I had it would have already been on the five o'clock news.

Anyway... Thanks Lady Liberty

You put tourists attractions back on the cool list!

...Count Down To Fashion Week - Day 7

Day 7...

This picture appeared on our show board today because I bore a striking resemblance to Nick Nolte's mug shot. This is what fashion week does to you...

Also to make things even more awesome, we took this picture for facebook and someone commented on how that guy on the left made a fashion faux pas...that guy is me and that coat is 80's classic vintage Betsey. Too bad the commenter missed the super sexy legs on that guy on the left! hah!

...Count Down To Fashion Week - Day 9 and Day 8 sheesh!

Day 9 and Day 8 

Well time flies when your having fun or when your so sleep deprived that you don't realize that two days have passed!

So here is the low down on what happened this weekend...

1. We had model casting and confirmed some bomb shell girls for the show

2. Locked most of the looks for show

3. Met with DJ Chris Bones about our banging show music

4. Astar happened...

We ate pizza and drank beer and then this happened...

Jen our social media guru is in a box to go to the warehouse!

5. We did some serious trend research at Accessories Palace

Astar happening again!

Next trend?

6. Char and her friend had Betsey draw XOX on them and then got it tattooed

7. Betsey drew on me but I can't tell you why or show you until after show

8. All my hard work with the accessories, such as shoes and jewelry, is starting to pay off in the over all tone of the show. 

9. We almost finished garments for Fashion On Ice

10. Summer 2012 Pink Label is starting to look spectacular

11. And finally, we ate more pizza and drank more beer

I think that is how most of the weekend went. Now I will sleep and begin again tomorrow!

Day 10...

100 years of East London style in 100 seconds. Sept 13th 1911 - Sept 13th 2011
