Lace: A Gentlemen's Club (According to the Sign)

Remember how I was saying that we were taking my mother-in-law for a day trip to NYC? Well, we did. I got a sunburn waiting around outside all day for some stupid tour bus (hate those things by the way) and went to the sewer that is Times Square for the fiftieth time to marvel at all the tourists thinking that this was the ultimate New York experience. But I’m not bitter. Highlights of the day included some great night time photography from the Top of the Rock, glam shots of me being a grumpus outside of Lace: A Gentlemen’s Club in Times Square (yeah, there's no gentlemen in there), and a chance encounter with a certain Mr. Stephen Colbert.



(I'm cranky because a) I'm sunburned b) I just paid $5 for a Vitamin Water c) I hate Times Square d) I dislike smut peddlers e) I'm generally just cranky a good 5 hours or so out of every day

Stephen Colbert! Nice. I've only been to New York once and I definitely had a distinct dislike of all the busy touristy places I went. You were so kind to go along and be a good sport though!

Wait a second is that a new hair do? How fabulous- I love the red with your skin tone! It's worth the grumpiness and general madness of NYC to catch a glimpse of Stephen (I admit to having a school girl crush on him!) Fabulous coral blazer!

Bonnie said...

WHADDUP, STEPHEN COLBERT?!!??!?!?!?
P.S. I love your rings.

i really, really, really love your new hair cut and color! you look amazing. i'll be in nyc next month!

ugh...$5 vitamin water...

Honeysuck_elle said...

Love the pictures and COLBERT! I would be jumping up and down like a dork if I saw him. I've only been to NYC twice and never saw Times Square, I mostly end up around Soho and cupcake shops lol.

I hate sunburn too, I'm very pale and just blehq. I like your new hair, it is very cute.

Especially love the grump picture! Great outfit, and so cool you saw Colbert!! xo

jess said...

It's neat the you saw Colbert.

Jessica Weingarten said...

Words CANNOT describe my jealousy right now - not for the Times Square tourist agony, but Stephen Colbert! The Colbert Report is my favorite.

LOVE that coral blazer as well, so good for colour blocking this season!

LyddieGal said...

yes to the new cut as well! and the night skyline pics, and extra yay for celeb sightings!

Beautiful photos. When I see this I really miss NYC!! It is such an amazing city.

Pratishtha Durga said...

Love these images. I'd be cranky too if I had to pay $5 for vitamin water. And sunburns are not good with me either. You still look cute, though.

Kristin said...

Gosh I heart that city...I'll be there in a few weeks and can't WAIT!

laura said...

Stephen Colbert, what what? How lucky! And your cranky face is adorable! I'd be cranky too if I got a sunburn. GAH. sunburns.

Ashley [Free Honey] said...

I love that bright blazer! I've never been to Top of the Rock...I should really check that out next time I have a visitor, the view looks unreal.

And everyone feels that way about Times Square...I work next to Bryant Park, just south of there and avoid it as much as possible. But even I have to admit, there's just no place like it.

xo, Ashley

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

OH MY GOOOOOSHHH STEPHEN COLBERT. I love him.
Also, Times Square makes my head explode x1000. Its so heinous. You're a trooper for braving it though.

Leia said...

LOL at your grumpus face!

Meghan @ Wishful Thinking said...

So avoid Times Square at all costs then? I have a NY trip planned for soon so this is very helpful! The pictures of the park look amazing and I love your outfit!

Debby said...

You are too cute. I am loving your hair short. I had doing the touristy stuff too. I can't stand the wait, lines, whatever... I'll admire from afar. xo

Ellie said...

Ugh I hate Times Square! But I do love these photos, and your hair looks amazing!

time square can be crowded, but i'm such a fan of broadway that that area sort of has a soft spot with me.
