Stomping Around Soho & TVFU Kickoff – Day 1 Recap

These last two weeks have been an absolute whirlwind! Shortly after returning from Teen Vogue Fashion U, I was immediately swamped with school work and I’ve been crazy-busy ever since! That being said, my sleep schedule has been all over the place…

I’m so excited to finally have time to tell all of you about my recent trip to NYC! I flew in on a Thursday night with my family friend, Mary, and my friend from school, who’s also named Mary. We got in relatively late after our flight being delayed, so we went straight to sleep when we got to the hotel in Manhattan.

The next day, we made plans to grab brunch, shop, and wander around in Soho for a bit before the Teen Vogue kickoff party at Express that evening! We ate at Balthazar for brunch, hit up Ladurée, and stopped in Tibi, Alex and Ani, Mulberry, and a few other shops. We also went to Barneys for a little bit and looked around there before heading back to our hotel to get ready for the kickoff party.

That night, my friend Mary and I cabbed it to Times Square for the kickoff party at Express! After heading inside, we socialized with other Fashion U “students” and members of Teen Vogue’s staff. The store was absolutely packed! Teen Vogue had a dj playing, a mocktail bar, and a flash tattoo and faux eyelash station for everyone to enjoy. The entire evening was a blast!
Keep checking back this week for more recaps of my Fashion U experience!
