New York City was amazing, as per usual. It was so nice to get away to the city with my mom and friend Viki last Thursday and Friday. I spent time at Fordham (I'm in love), shopped in SoHo, explored Times Square, perused the Met, and best of all, I visited Oscar PR Girl at Oscar de la Renta headquarters on Friday morning. If you don't know who Oscar PR Girl Erika Bearman is, she's ODLR's senior VP of communications and she's amazing. Not only does she have the coolest job in the world, she's the sweetest woman I've ever met. Oh, and the best dressed one, too. My morning at Oscar de la Renta was like a dream, in fact, I still can't believe it was real. I keep replaying it through my head! I was like a kid on Christmas Eve.
How fabulous is she? As you can see, Viki and I matched, but this was a complete accident! I mean, we were going to wear maxis in honor of Erika's signature style, but the color was a total coincidence. Oops! I decided to wear a sock bun since Erika basically invented it. But I digress. Oscar's office was amazing, the press office was amazing and the showroom -- don't get me started. Clothes from ODLR collections surrounded me and I was in heaven. Then, we saw the in-house model trying on a new piece that was exquisite. I loved everything about the fashion house. Not to mention, everything is made in the US. If it isn't made in the HQ, it's made at the factory in the Bronx. Don't you just love that? There's so much I could say about my visit with Erika, but I couldn't nearly type it all. It was a magical day and one of the best of my life. My mother, Viki and I were all in another world while we were there. It was breathtaking! And the view from the 25th floor HQ -- oh my God. Beautiful. Take my word for it, everything Oscar de la Renta is just unbelievable. Thank you, Erika for making my dreams come true. I'm honored to be your "little". I can't wait to be a PR girl someday.
I'm still getting over the fact that I met Oscar PR Girl. Wow.
