Day 7... Only in New York

Whee! I'm kind of on an NYC high right now. Spent this afternoon/evening with a friend of my sister's who is like another big sis to me, and we had too much fun. The highlight of the evening was attending the Coach Blogger Party. Basically four fashion bloggers (which you probably know if you adore fashion blogs as much as I do) designed their own limited edition bags for Coach, which were presented at this party, along with the bloggers themselves! My two FAVORITE fashion bloggers Emily and Kelly were both there, and I was beyond ecstatic to meet them.

You may remember Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere from this post. She's actually the first "fashion blogger" I found on the web, and I just adore her sweet and chic California style. She is just as sweet and sparkly in person as I imagined she would be, and despite the immense popularity of her blog, she actually remembered me from a couple of emails we've traded. Score! (Psst - Emily is holding the bag she designed for Coach - isn't it darling?)

I discovered Kelly's fantabulous blog, The Glamourai, a bit later, but fell in love with her quirky glam vintage style immediately. She also designs her own jewelry, and it's pretty much fantastic. This girl is definitely going places. Plus, she's from Austin! Like Emily, Kelly was a complete doll, and we chatted about our mutual love for ATX and big baubles. (Kelly's also holding her bag, although you can't really see it.)

You can learn more about their Coach bags here. Sadly I did not walk away with any new bags because, well, I can't afford a new bag right now, but it was still fun to be there. Merci Emily, Kelly, and Coach for a fun NYC evening!
