Cab to Chelsea, intending to wander art galleries
Wander streets of Chelsea, and figure out that galleries are closed on Sundays
Go to take a picture of this really cool entrance way that we assume is a gallery, and find that it's Comme des Garcons. Hesitate, hem, haw, and overcome my fear...we go in. Gor-GEOUS!
Heart still palpitating, exit. Breathe.
Next door, Balenciaga. Fall in love with a grey a-line sweater dress that's almost affordable & might even fit me. Sigh.
Heat palpitating, stoll down the street.
Little French bar. Suppose I have the card somewhere - I'll dig it out. Bottle of sparkling water, DC Celine - Campari Orange w/ a splash of soda, H - greyhound. Get a recommendation for "the best pizza ever." Start to figure out that New Yorkers are really some of the nicest people ever.
More wandering through Chelsea...stay tuned for a DC connection & tomato scents.
