A Stylish Staycation

Being able to collaborate with family is such a blessing, and although Erin and I always have a lot of fun working together, we are conscious of how important it is to carve out sister time that’s separate from coworker world. We knew Fashion Week was going to be crazy for us both, so just before the madness commenced, we took a night off and checked into the Mandarin Oriental for a stylish staycation.

We both live in downtown Manhattan, so simply heading uptown for an evening felt like a total getaway ~ the perfect everyday upgrade for two women too busy for a proper vacation. The hotel provided a delicious departure from our everyday realities, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring views of Central Park. We packed Sleepy Jones pajamas, a few fashion magazines and our favorite Ecco Domani wine, ordered a feast from room service and a fleet of fashion movies on demand. It was the ideal escape, a little sisterly campout complete with bubble baths and Le Mieux face masks ~ for one night, we could forget all our cares and and simply pamper ourselves. What better way to clear our minds and our moods before a frenzied Fashion Week and a fully-booked Fall than with good food, good wine and the most-fun company?!Food1Staycation9ABOVE + BELOW| we paired our favorite wines with fresh fish dishes: hawker-style grilled shrimp, sesame-crusted Ahi tuna over frisée salad, and Saikyo miso cod ~ served with a heaping side of French fries (because you can’t not!)
