I think I will have to say that my favourite day of BlogTour NYC was the day we went shopping in SoHo with Amy Dragoo of ABCD designs. Amy is an artist, designer and stylist who splits her time between New York City and the hills of Litchfield County. I like her motto: Life is short, eat off the good china!
It was nice to get a feel of the city with a native New Yorker, and who doesn’t like to shop?
The New Traditionalists where ‘traditional and cool are not mutually exclusive’.
