Hope everyone enjoyed their weekends! I apologize for the delay in releasing Twitter-views this week. The Mr. and I spent some time playing tourists on the Lower East Side, checking into the new Thompson LES, which had an adorable pool deck and a lively bar scene. Our rate was reasonable and the service was superb. We would highly recommend it to our friends...
For last week's Twitter-views, I asked my stylish and fashionable Twitter friends the following question: "If you could sit front row at three designer shows during New York Fashion Week, which would they be?" Some dropped the usual classic names, while others decided to leave New York altogether, preferring designers who show in other fashionable cities. Here is what they had to say...
@fashionista0921 DVF, Isaac Mizrahi, Christian Siriano
@MarieDenee Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, DVF... they always have very interesting items!
@fairykikka wang balmain von furstenberg!!
@SabinaLes Custo Barcelona, Zang Toi, A.Herchcovitch
@ClandestineChic Alexandre Herchcovitch, Carolina Herrera, and 3.1 Phillip Lim :)

Which three New York designers would you pick?
Speaking of classic New York designers, Dee of The Candid Commentary and some lovely organizers for Liz Claiborne invited me to a screening of an Isaac Mizrahi mockumentary last week, but due to the ill-fated timing of my wisdom tooth extraction, I missed the event... It sounds like an amazing time was had by all, and many of my favorite New York fashion bloggers were in attendance. Isaac was there and I am still kicking myself for missing out! Please do check out her coverage of the event, along with some amazing pictures.
