This is not really appropriate because I am having to take my daughter out of school for a few days when she has only just gone back. BUT I couldn’t miss this opportunity to take her to New York for a mother/daughter bonding weekend to cover not only Fashion Night Out but also the 9/11 Memorial Service. Her teachers have been very positive – she is going to be writing an article and interviewing some other teenagers and she has spent the last two days watching two TV programmes about 9/11 and taking notes. Sometimes, education needs to be seen beyond the classroom walls.

Sadly Anna Wintour couldn’t fit us in for an interview (well she is responsible for organising the whole event for the third year running, so I don’t blame her). Neither could she give us a quote BUT her team have put together a list of events appropriate for a mother & daughter combo to attend on the night. We are going to stalk Grace Coddington at Prada as well as go to the Teen Vogue Block Party where there will be manicure stations, popsicle bars, photo booths and a DJ. VERY COOL.

Anyway, we’re both really excited and will be reporting back regularly:-

Coincidentally – my friend emailed me this earlier – the new Smythson notebook. Just perfect:-

  1. WOW! How utterly amazing. Have a fab time, and make sure you take tons of photos 🙂 x

  2. Ooo I’m green with envy.. I hope I get to do things like that with my girls.. I lived in NYC for a year and to this day it was the coolest thing I’ve ever done. It was just before 9/11 and I lived right by the WTC.. in fact spent my last night in an apartment opposite it.. What a poignant time to visit.. I hope it is full of positivity and not too much sadness. Enjoy.

    BM x

  3. How come you get all the good gigs. (Shuffles off in a complete huff.)

  4. This sounds amazing!

    It sounds like your daughter is really making the most of the opportunity! I’m pea-green. Autumn is also such a great time in the city.
