Well, it was that time of year when Jeff and I have our annual pilgrimage to New York City. It's always good to visit so I wanted to share with you some photos of our LVoely trip.
First stop was a late lunch at Hell's Kitchen. After which, we were supposed to go to our favourite museum in New York, the Frick Collection,but we were too late by the time lunch was over. Good thing that catty-corner to the museum was Ladurée.
The store was amazingly French!
By the way, the Celine boutique was just next to it.
There was a bit of a line to go in but it was well worth the wait. Strolling down further on Madison Avenue, of course we finally ended up at Louis Vuitton on 5th. The photos speak for themselves.
LVoe, LVoe, LVoe the parasol!
A nice dinner at a hole-in-the-wall Thai place had a perfect touch on their iced tea - the straw wrapper transformed into a miniature rose.
As we winded down for the day, a trip on the roof of our hotel provided a spectacular view.
Before bed, tasty treats à la française.
The following day, I wanted to see the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. Believe it or not, I have been to New York several times, but have not walk through the park ever. Around it, yes, but not through it. Bordering the park on 58th and 7th, I had to stop and stare at the Petrossian's magnificent façade.
As in the movies, the fountain had that unmistakable charm about it. No wonder that Hollywood has chosen it time and again for its magical scenes on film.
A pensive moment...
Since it was a Sunday, a weekend in New York would not be complete without hearing Mass at Saint Patrick's Cathedral.
Then off to lunch at Soho where another LV store awaits!
Gaaaahhh...my Holy Grail!
The Travel Room at Soho with its array of Keepalls.
As you can see, I went home empty handed.
But was thrilled to have visited all of Marc Jacob's franchises: Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Little Marc Jacobs and BookMarc
Before, we headed for home on Monday, we decided to take a tour of the wonderful New York Public Library.
I highly recommend this walking tour into one of New York's treasured landmarks.
The high point of my trip was when I saw the actual stuffed animals that inspired A.A. Milne to pen the Winnie-the-Pooh stories.
Thanks for LVooking at my pics. LVoe it! - Francis
Special thanks to Janet.
