Megan blogs at TfDiaries and is unusually serious about blogging. She puts tremendous effort into her posts. They are remarkable and, in them, Megan displays sizable talents as a stylist and model. Megan used to work in the fashion industry and she still has connections there. That's why she comes to Fashion Week, where she gets VIP treatment and entry into exclusive shows.
Waiting for Megan, I hovered around the FW entrance where burly security guards enforced the "Not Open To Public" barrier. Famous models and industry insiders wandered in and out of the building. The path was crowded with professional photographers snapping pictures. It was like a red carpet event with excitement and buzz in the crisp air. ("Who's that?!", people kept whispering as fashionably-dressed beauties passed by.)
Best of all, the event is held in Lincoln Center, which is a gorgeous place for the arts in the heart of Manhattan. You feel special just being there. You may remember Cher, in the movie "Moonstruck", swooning before the water fountain in the plaza while waiting to attend an opera.
In between fashion shows, Megan ventured out and we grabbed a pleasant brunch. We caught up on all matters, personal and bloggy. Megan looked fantastic in a hat studded with sea-life ornaments and an amazingly-beautiful color of lipstick.
After our meeting, Megan retreated to another show and I walked around the city, camera in hand. The urban landscape is so full of arresting visual imagery. I took a bunch of photos, shown below. I hope you enjoy them.
Have you ever been to Manhattan? Would you like to visit?
I love meeting people who I only know virtually IRL! What fun. Glad that you were able to connect again! I'm going to Manhattan this weekend ... First time in years! Can't wait.ReplyDelete
Another amazing meet-up. I've never been anywhere north of the Mason-Dixon line, but wow! would I love to visit. Hope you got some sneak peeks and some amazingly dressed people.ReplyDelete
I went to Manhattan for work a few years back (well, a few + some). I was literally there for 1 day. Sucked as I didn't get a chance to do anything fun. I stayed in the W in Times Square. Times Square makes me crazy and I don't ever want to go back. I want to visit again and do non-touristy things, including getting together w/you! (Wait, maybe that's touristy now...)ReplyDelete
Visitors really need to avoid the tourist traps where, for excessive prices, they get a lame experience. Next time you visit, I'll show you the REAL New York!Delete
Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. If I am in NYC this year, we have to meet too!!!ReplyDelete

That's been a long-held dream of mine, buddy. Seriously.Delete
Oh I'm so jealous! It sounds like you had a blast and these pictures are just wonderful. =D Oh and I LOVE Megan's shoes.ReplyDelete
I have been to Manhattan, but I was 16 and I would LOVE to go again. I have so many friends there that would let me crash at their place so I just need to get myself there =]
Sounds like you had a great time! The pictures are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Never been to Manhattan, I've actually never been to the USA... Hope I'll get to go there some day soon!
You are so lucky... Hanging with friends at fashion week!!! I love Manhattan and want very much to go back (haven't been since I was a kid... We used to live in New Jersey and travel over on the weekends). There is no place like it.ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying living vicariously through your photos!
Wow! How fun to get that chance! Side note: the lady in neon looks amazing!ReplyDelete
Aww! She is a cutie! How awesome to be around all of the fashion hustle and bustle. I have always wanted to go to New York! I wanna hangout in central park, and go shopping at Beacon's closet. And of course to hangout with all of my blogger buddies who live out that way. Sigh, ONE DAY.ReplyDelete
i have photo documentation that i was in NY, but i was young and have no idea where exactly! i will return one day and i love the hustle and bustle of the big city!!ReplyDelete
I love hearing about your blogger meetups. I would so much like to meet more of my blogging friends. Planning one trip to meet a super lovely NC blogger in March.ReplyDelete
Your photos are amazing. Moving to NYC is on the Bucket List, and we honestly think we can make it happen once The Teens have flown the nest (which in these times means gotten some kind of college degree and a job, right?)
How neat that you were in NYC in the hubbub of fashion week! Your photos are beautiful, I love the pink & red ensemble and that including you, there are 2 photographers snapping her pic at once! So neat that you had such a fabulous blogger meet up!ReplyDelete
I didn't realize you have a blog! So excited to have found it. I am now following you via Bloglovin.ReplyDelete
The Glamorous Housewife
looks like you were very happy to meet Megan - no wonder she's lovely in blog.ReplyDelete
FW photos are lovely - right in the mood!
You have quite the repertoire of awesome Megans. Then again, it's no surprise! You seem to be a very kind, thoughtful and stylish individual!ReplyDelete
Thank you. And it isn't hard to amass Megan-friends since half the bloggers I know are named Megan. Where are the Gertrudes, Ediths and Myrtles?Delete
I've been battling on and off to leave comments on blogger accounts - most frustrating.ReplyDelete
I would so love to visit Manhattan ... it just sounds out of this world.
So glad you had a great time.
I always love seeing you! Xo Megan, www.TfDiaries.comReplyDelete
