New York City – Fashion, Faucets & Fun

Tweets float up my stream  – and this one caught my attention:

It’s almost time for another awesome Brizo event at #FashionWeek. Follow the conversation with #BrizoFW.

Fedex delivers a Brizo box

So excited to have this amazing opportunity.  I have tried on every outfit in my wardrobe,  spread out piles of the shiny stuff, and left a trail of shoes.  Business Casual in New York City? Can you take Silicon Valley out of this girl?
Something I never imagined, when I bit the twitter bullet has happened.
I have made it to Broadway.  Well close.

I will be at a swish hotel, hobnobbing with design brights and the fabulous Brizo team.

Watching Jason Wu’s collection floating down a long aisle.
Its been a long journey from polite woman standing at the someday stop to jumping on the bus.

I am so glad I decided to swim with the bird.
FOTs (Friends on Twitter) have given me a seat at a new table.

This week I fly into New York city to link hearts, imagination and voice in fostering creativity among the newest blogger 19, courtesy of Brizo.
I get the 19.  There is power in numbers.

Brizo I bow to your big heart  & dynamic leadership.  Style is not just line of design, it is a life line.

I will be bouncing into Graceland (thank you Paul Simon) in the company of giants.  (alphabetical order).

For a lark I decided to run a thread through a current post of the 19.  So it turns out theme is layering, lemons and fire. Found a Jason Wu outfit that tells the story of the Polite woman’s unravelling. From wardrobe to plate.

Wu woos us into wonder

What makes a design, a drink or defining moment?  History, Adversity & Distilling the passion.
