If you’ve seen this shirt and didn’t know I was going to own it, then you don’t know me AT ALL. I love Anime Bing (designer of said shirt), but Chandler is my first Bing love. (First name Bada).
We were recently in New York for the Fohr Card conference with the always entertaining James Nord, learning influencer stuff, as well as a new technology that the company just released. (Read the WWD article here.) Fohr Card can now look at all of an influencer’s followers and determine the percentage of REAL people following them. AMAZING. So basically all people have bots following them. You just pick them up, even when you don’t mean to. Everyone is going to have a few bots, but they shouldn’t have a ton. I ran my Instagram account through this ‘health score’ and and have included the screenshot below. My following is 99% authentic, the 1% being those pesky bots. I knew that you were real, but it’s nice that I can be verified by a third party.
While we were in NYC, we stayed with our friends at NoMo SoHo, a trendy boutique hotel right in the middle of where I needed it to be – down the street from my conference, and surrounded by great food and shopping. We’ve stayed with NoMo before, and are always blown away with the friendliness of the staff within the hotel, as well as the restaurant. (And the decor is perfectly funky.)
We also made rounds to Jack’s Wife Freda for the grapefruit mimosa and greek salad, and Balthazar for a ham and cheese croissant. We tried some newbies while we were there including Nobu’s newest (and most stunning) location on Broadway as I stuffed my face with the crispy rice/spicy tuna heaven. Our cousin took us to the incredible Palma Restaurant – a quaint Italian spot with a garden in the back. The La Vie en Rose cocktail was amazing, and the food must have been good because they next day my clothes had red sauce all over them. And I don’t recall having red sauce, pretty sure I had the gluten free and truffle filled fettuccini and it was WONDERFUL.
The always beautiful Alexandra Wolf and I also fit some shots in while it was raining. Because she’s the bomb. Shop my look below!
