For the Love of Twinkle
Last Wednesday I took a really spontaneous trip to New York City. It all stated when I logged into my Facebook account on Tuesday evening. The first news on my feed was from Twinkle by Wenlan, she was having a warehouse sale in New York. I don't know if I have shared that Twinkle is my absolute favorite designer/brand. Twinkle has the most luxurious knits ever. I have knit many Twinkle patters myself but I didn't own anything from the ready to wear line, since it is very expensive and therefore out of my price range. So, when I saw that there would be a warehouse sale and prices would be 60% off I knew I had to be there. The next morning I set out on a 4 hour bus trip to New York, all for my love of Twinkle. I have been to New York a few times but never by myself so this was uncharted territory. I arrived at the sale around 10:30 am, and found some great pieces. I spent 180 bucks on nine Twinkle pieces, all of the pieces were originally priced over 100 dollars a piece, so that was a steal. After I left the sale, I had a delicious lunch in Chelsea at Cafeteria. All in all a productive and relaxing day trip in NYC. I should do that more often!
