Fall Picks from Edit New York

Everyone knows that the two biggest drawbacks to any fashion week are 1) transportation (or the lack thereof), and 2) serious retail binges inspired by exposure to clothes 24/7 for over a week. Well, Edit New York, a super chic Upper East Side boutique decided to solve both dilemmas for a group of very lucky bloggers, including moi. For two days and nights, I got to ride around in a speedy little smartcar, complete with an awesome driver named Ash who blasted the new(ish) Kanye/Jay-Z album and pulled some sort of road miracle and got me to Oscar de la Renta in time to sit across from A Dubs and Nicki Minaj. Note: Due to my unshakeable belief that it takes 15 minutes to get anywhere in Manhattan (possibly inspired by Clueless), I had given him exactly 18 minutes to get from Wall Street to Midtown Manhattan. Not cool, I know.

As if that weren't enough, they went ahead and gave me a morning of shopping, during which I went up to the boutique and picked out a nifty little tweed Isabel Marant jacket, which, I actually broke out in today's chilly fall weather. As I mentioned in a previous post, this boutique is my new favorite place. It's stocked with every designer I love and wear, including Marant, Phillip Lim, Wang, Stella McCartney, Proenza, and more. They even had the infamously hard-to-find Marant Dicker boots in a size 37, which is the closest to my size 36 I've ever gotten with those elusive puppies. Point is, you should go check it out. As soon as possible. To illustrate this point further, I've picked out some of my fave pieces currently available on their website. Check it out above. xo
