Visiting New York is always a favorite of mine, especially when it involves friends, blogging, a meeting new people! Attending the Fashion Forward conference for the second year, I was surprised to have somewhat of a different experience than last...equally amazing, just different mainly due to the pleasure I had of being in the fashion show and everything that went along with that experience. LOVED every minute of it!

In the fashion show, I wore one of my favorite lines...CAbi's Fall Collection. The night before, CAbi hosted an exclusive event where we were privileged to see the entire line, as well as chat with CAbi and their PR teams.
Side note: I was a little anxious about taking the train out to NJ by myself after the event Monday night...and it just so happened that I was pushing it to make the 8:30ish train on time. Wearing the above (red) heels, I walk/ran SEVEN blocks with my huge bag AND my suitcase, and made the train by the skin of my teeth. I kid you not, the doors closed right behind me. I was in a full-body sweat and couldn't feel my feet as I plopped down in the first open seat. I then proceeded to ask everyone around me if I was on the right train, as I really had no clue what I was doing. Oh the looks I received...priceless. I threw a few "y'alls" out and smiled my sweetest (albeit sweatiest) smile and crossed my fingers their eye daggers would cease and desist. I don't know how New Yorkers do it everyday...plain exhausting!
