We are back from our favorite buy of the year! There is nothing like New York in September, we tell you . . . summer’s humidity is gone (allowing us to comfortably sport our new FW favorites), the days are still long, the evenings still warm. The fashion world (and seemingly the entire city) a buzz from Fashion Week and the SS12 market opening. It felt extra special this time around – perhaps because it was one year ago that we did our FIRST buy for Coup, perhaps the overall nostalgia of September . . . who knows. Whatever it was, we loved every minute.
Here are our favorite moments (business and pleasure) and a few teasers for what’s to come for spring/summer 2012.
First comes the “work” . . .

It was a mad rush from the airport but we made it just in time!

And now for the pleasure . . .
