The "Bridal Brigade" Takes Manhattan (Part 1)

I don't know what more to say about this weekend, other than it was one of the most wonderful, unforgettable, fabulous weekends of my entire life. Better than when I met Mike Tyson at Caesar's Palace? Absolutely. Chatting it up with Albie Manzo? Definitely. Going to NYC for the Cosmo's Hottest Bachelor contest because I nominated the winner? Getting closer. (By the way, that's a story for another time dolls)...

It all started about two weeks ago when I was "casually" browsing the Kleinfeld's website looking for the perfect wedding gown. I was just getting to that point where I was completely overwhelmed by organza, beading, tulle and lace when... BAM ... there it was. The most elegant, delicate, classic creation I have ever laid eyes on. I had to have it. I NEEDED it. In that instant, Henry Roth became the Starbucks to my Britney Spears, the Charlie Sheen to my Porn Star...

Obviously, I went right to Twitter (@allegedlyfff) with the news that I had found my dress, but it clearly wasn't available in Ohio (what ever is?). Imagine my surprise when Mr. Henry Roth (@1henryroth) tweeted me back! <Insert excited, girly shriek here> Not only did he tweet me back, but he asked me to come meet him at Kleinfeld's. KLEINFELD'S! The absolute mecca of bridal fashion. <Insert even higher pitched shriek>

So, what to do? Apologize to Henry, but traveling to NYC is just impossible on such short notice? Puh-lease. If any of you actually thought I would say "no" to that opportunity just stop reading now because you clearly don't belong. Obviously, I called my girls, packed my bags and started east...

Check back soon for all the details on my champagne-brunch with Henry, the majesty that is Kleinfeld's and just exactly how much Starbucks is needed to fuel 20 hours of driving in one weekend...

Until next time dolls... Tanti Baci!! xoxo
