Small Town NYC + Sneak Peak

I'm in New York presenting new bags for Spring 2012 market at Steven Alan showroom and can't believe what a small town it can seem like here. I've run into good friends the last two nights and I've been having great meals. Here's a sneak peak at the bags along with gastronomic details of my past few days.
After FNO at SA on Thursday night (which was so much fun and get over there right now to get an exclusive back-to-school CV canvas bag if you haven't already been there), I went to Odeon with KK and Michael and we ran into Lara and Jared so we ended up getting a large table for all of us - new friends were made. Friday a.m. I had a breakfast date with my new friend Julie at Locanda Verde especially for their ricotta grilled toast.

After that for breakfast, I really thought I'd never eat again, alas I had business lunch date with Mr. Alan at...Odeon. Ha! I had to eat something to not be rude so I ordered yummy tomato soup. It was all I could handle after a truckload of fresh ricotta, and it was perfect with a glass of rose Sancerre. 

Last night, Simone and I ate a delicious dinner at Annisa. Chef Anita Lo just published her first book in which she mentions Simone's husband in the preface, so that was fun to read. After that we strolled towards the Bon Appetit / Rag & Bone party at Frankies Sputino 570, but before we got there we stopped to sit on the benches outside Cafe Cluny and ran into Michael and his friend Peter so we had a glass of wine and chatted for a bit while they ate succulent chicken.
Then on to the party where there more than a few gorgeous types like Karolina Kurkova and Gucci Westman, and I had the pleasure of running into Mr. Andrew Rosen who owns Rag & Bone and Theory and I met his wife and we got to chat about how my bags sell at his stores. Small town NYC.

I'm loving the new styles, particularly those rounded clutches. Will these be up on the regular site at any point soon?

Also? Just thinking Locanda Verde's ricotta makes me drool - that stuff is to DIE FOR!
