MOOD


Here is part two of my post covering NYC.  By popular demand...MOOD!  We had a hard time finding it and finally realized that it is on the third floor of an office building.  The elevator operator has made many trips to Mood, it has become a popular tourist destination.  (Just when we thought we were so original to go there.)  The picture of dresses is a display on the main floor.  The amazing thing about it is that the dresses are just straight pinned together!  Those designers really know what they are doing.  The second picture is another display that shows dresses made for the show and a sample of the fabrics used.  We ran around looking at everything and having a grand old time and of course, when it was time to leave we had to say "Thank you, Mood", something they probably hear 100 times a day.  Tim was not around.

Well, I spent part of the day trying to find a picture of Tracy London's killer shoes, but no luck.  They were sandals, all black straps.  Each strap was rimmed in gold and the heels were probably 6 inches.  She looked fabulous in skinny jeans, hiding under her hair, and with no makeup.  If I looked like her, I would never wear makeup!   If this post doesn't make sense to you, scroll down to the previous one.

I love Project Runway. I am so envious! Those dress makers are like sculptors sometimes aren't they?

I am in love with fashion. That sounds so diva-ish, doesn't it? That sounds like the funnest trip, I really enjoyed your Today show post too :)

How fun Carol! I am a great admirer too of Project Runway.
I would never believe that Mood i's housed on the 3rd floor - in the series always see the contestants running up + down the stairs. Is Mood on more than one floor?
Still searching for the shoes?

Have enjoyed your New York posts. I am a huge Project Runway fan. Always sad when the season is over. Looks like you had a great time.

Susan, We were not expecting that either! Yes, it is on three levels. The stairs you see in the show are interior stairs where there is more fabric and there is another set that goes down where they keep upholstry fabrics.

I have given up on the shoes...but trust me, they were killer and I have never seen a real live human bean wear something like that on the street before!
