Okay I went a tad out of order. Woops! This was actually before we went to Lincoln Center to see all the Fashion Week madness. This was me, the morning after one crazy New York night. After the CurrentlyObsessed.me event, I roamed the meat packing district in a wine veiled haze by myself before I had my bestie Anita and her roomie Somi meet me at the Standard. Not knowing where the Standard was at all, I ever so elegantly wobbled away from the Soho House where the event was held and was just trying to find a place to go number 1. Turns out I ended up exactly where I needed to be. Which is some kind of proof that you get really smart on a few one too many glasses of Sauvignon Blanc. And might I add, strolling in the meat packing district where it is ALL cobblestone, on six inch booties, in a wine induced happy stage, is no easy feat. I literally lived up to my blog title. Drunk On Shoes indeedio! We proceeded to meet some really interesting and super duper fun foreigners. Two who were from London and Australia who were there because they had just sold their company to Living Social. Cool! And also, another two Swedish gentlemen who had something to do with Spotify but at that point I was in no condition to retain information. Hehehehe... For all I know they could have been the founders.
So this is me, the morning after. I had just finished nursing the effects of the prior night at Congee Village in NY Chinatown with Anita and Papa DOS. That congee really did wonders. I felt increasingly better the more I ate. I highly recommend Congee Village and it's crab congee and seafood congee. It's top notch! Anita always knows where to guide me to some delicious eats. Plus it's really sexy hearing her speak Canto. =) Of course Papa DOS was having the best time ever. If he could, he would have eaten in Chinatown every meal of the day for the 3 days we were there. We also had to scoop up some roast duck to go from his favorite duck spot, Big Wong King on Mott Street. Don't be fooled by Big WING Wong which is also on Mott Street and has almost the exact same sign as Big Wong's. I almost got tricked three times already. The good stuff is at Big Wong King (although it just says Big Wong on the sign).
I honestly didn't really think about what I was going to wear. I grabbed the first pair of jeans and soft sweater I had packed, and was out the door. Pastel jeans are so great. Just as great as neon ones. Hahaha... But I love these more because of the pale leopard print on them. Gives a fun twist to the leopard print denim trend that hit last year. Understated but oh so pretty. And when you are in no condition to think about what you are going to wear, it's perfect to go with any soft and loose sweater or tee and you can still feel like you have on a fab outfit without even really trying. So I hope you enjoy the photos and outfit I have here, regardless of the very little thought I put into it. More props to Papa DOS for the photos. =)

So this upcoming week is my birthday week! Yay! I celebrate my birthday starting the weekend prior to it up until the end of the month. Doesn't everyone? Starting tonight, my birthday celebrations begin. It also falls right in the middle of restaurant week here in Chicago... so lots of dinners with friends. Looking forward to it all. Tonight begins with some good ol' karaoke. YEA! Absolutely one of my favorite things to do. Hahahaha. I am not a good singer by any means. But who cares! LA LA LA LA LA!! I will try to keep the posts coming since I have more outfit photos from NYC. Thanks everyone for visiting and reading my ramblings, I love you all! =)
