A Date with the City

This past Monday I had a Date with the City. I often do these and they are very enjoyable. I got the idea from an episode of Sex and the City where Carrie meets up with a Fleet Week Guy Lewis at a Navy Party who was bashing NYC saying it was too loud.
“If Lewis was right, and you only get one great love, New York may just be mine. And I can’t have nobody talking shit about my boyfriend!” – Carrie Bradshaw
Speaking of which Fleet Week starts this weekend! Nothing like Navy and Marine men flooding the city. They have tons of events going on too…NYC Fleet Week Events Schedule.
Anyway back to the story..I went shopping at Loehmann’s and then got a pair of cool earrings from Urban Outfitters for $5 and then saw a movie Midnight in Paris. Later I got a Mango Doughnut from The Doughnut Plant in Chelsea. Afterward I took a stroll through Bryant Park.
There was a sale at Loehmann’s 20% off so I got 2 pair of 7 for all Mankind Jeans and a top for $66 dollars total. Fashion STEELE! Photos to come soon.
The highlight was definitely Midnight in Paris. A romantic comedy by Woody Allen. It was funny and thoughtful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Owen Wilson was hilarious in it as well. It also spoke to my love for Paris. A place I’ve never been but have always been drawn to. The attraction has gotten even stronger. I plan to visit next year.

I just want to say that that mango donut was the best I have ever had in my life. 
It was fresh, large and delicious!
If you are ever on 23rd St in Manhattan..stop on by.
The Perfect Date with the City!

    So cool! I have had so many dates with NYC it’s crazy, my favorites are…the San Genaro (spelling?) festival, seeing MC Lyte at South Street Seaport, Celia Cruz and Tito Puente at Blue Note Cafe, all the museums, Soho, all my early adult memories are NYC related so whoever talks junk about my boyfriend…there’s a problem!

    Sounds like fun! I haven’t been on a date with this old city in a while. Have a love/hate relationship with NY right now and as I will always love it, it isn’t the same as it used to be for me ๐Ÿ™

    What a cool idea. And I want to see that movie so bad but it’s not playing here the last time I checked.
    Those donuts sound delish.

    I have to go to the doughnut plant and see about that mango doughnut. I love anything mango. Can’t wait to see your new buys.

    Vintage Thrift trade secret: we treat our staff to a snack of their choosing on each person’s birthday. Almost everyone chooses Doughnut Plant! (The creme brulee and peanut butter & jelly are crowd favorites.)
