When it comes to New York, I’m a downtown girl at heart. My best buddy LP lives in Soho and her adorable apartment and neighborhood has become my home away from home. However this recent trip I had the luxury of staying at The Empire Hotel, which is just steps from Lincoln Center where most NYFW shows take place. While it has been incredibly convenient given the frigid temperatures, I couldn’t help but feel a tad bit homesick for my Soho stomping grounds during my stay. So yesterday I took the time to putz around downtown between seeing the Dennis Basso and Kenneth Cole shows and grabbed a coffee/cookie at my favorite spot (Birdbath Bakery). It was a breath of fresh air on a busy busy day.
