I'm not quite sure if anyone ever noticed this about Soho, but literally every store closes by 8 PM! Soho, in my opinion, is one of the trendiest parts of NYC. It's pretty strange that the entire downtown vibe literally dies before the night has even begun.
We ended up taking a bus back to Chelsea, which was a surprisingly quick ride. Unlike every other person living in the city, I HATE subways. I just find them dirty, which is why I typically walk everywhere, but I was completely exhausted by the time night came around!
Once arriving back in Chelsea, we went to my favorite sushi place. It's called Ichiban, and it's right on 7th Ave! They actually know my boyfriend and I, as we're almost always there. They actually know our orders by heart!
And for those of you wondering about my interview this morning, it went great! I met Stephanie, the owner of Market For Drama, at Le Pain Quotidien this morning. Her resume is rediculous- she graduated from M.I.T., worked at Rock & Republic, Amazon.com Cosmetics, and recently re-launched the Kardashians' skincare line! We ordered coffee and had a great chat, and long story short, Market for Drama is a startup site that sells high end beauty products. You should definitely check it out if you haven't already! If I got the internship, I would learn all about the industry and gain great hands-on experience. I won't find out for a few more weeks, but I hope all goes well!
As for my interview outfit, I went with my go-to look: Straightened hair, professional makeup, collared shirt, leggings, and boots. I know it may not sound too great, but I LOVE leggings! I wear them as pants almost every day. Some people may not think they're business-appropriate, but honestly, it's all about how you wear it. If you pair leggings with a concert tee, it's retro-chic. If you pair it with a collared shirt, it's business-chic. Both chic, but in a different way.
And as far as the boots, I have this one pair of Banana Republic equestrian-style rain boots that I wear almost every day. The weather is surprisingly unpredictable up here, and there are puddles on almost every corner. A trendy pair of rain boots is a MAJOR staple!
