While I was in New York, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the delightful Miss Amy from the blog Plenty for Pennies. I must admit, I was kind of nervous! When it comes to the Blogosphere, I am a major newb! You see, I have only been blogging for a mere three months. I have never been on a blind date, nor arranged to meet up with someone I met over the Interwebs! I wondered what this poised and put together New Yorker would think of ‘lil ‘ol me? I mean let’s be serious…..the girl is the Sultan of Chic! Has anyone ever checked out her blog? (If you haven’t, I suggest you do so immediately!)
We arranged to meet on Amy’s lunch hour….and a half.(lucky gal!) Macy’s, sunglasses area, first floor, 1:00….to be exact. Allow me to set the scene….so here’s me, casually trying on shades that I most definitely can not afford, nervous pit in stomach, trying to be cool, trying to look New York…..hoping that I don’t make an ass of myself. As I slipped a gorgeous pair of Gucci Cat eye’s on my fache and admired myself in the mirror….my gaze caught the reflection of a familiar face. It was Amy! Our eyes both lit up as we moved to greet each other. From that moment on, I felt like I had known Amy my whole life. As I said in my previous post, we became fast friends, who dished on life, blogging, fashion and good ‘ol New York!
First order of business was shopping!
I have been admiring Amy’s gorgeous jewelry for quite some time now….
I was dying to know where to find such fantastic statement pieces in New York
Amy finds many of her jewels online
Being a thrifty shopper like myself, she puts all of her coveted items on a ‘wish list’
She then watches and waits for reductions
Now that’s one thrifty New Yorker!
Pattern mixing, ring bling, and her trusty Nikon…
Amy was rockin’ the quintessential blogger uniform!
(Tribal Print Skirt, Necklace – Thrift, Tanks, Jacket, Bracelets, Earrings – H&M, Sandals – Guess)
…..that’s all she wrote!
Hope you enjoyed!
