Freezing on the Hottest Day in NYC

This week was the Fall Preview and Fashion Runway Show for Worth New York and W By Worth. Over 500 beautiful and astute business woman literally take over the Waldorf Astoria! The lobby has never looked so fabulous. The rooftop bees could not be heard over the buzz of the Worth women! A couple of interesting facts I bet you haven't heard on the hotel's website:
a) This is the coldest hotel in America! Each conference room is colder than the other. Wear your warmest clothes, even if there is a heat wave outside, like there was this past week!
b) There is absolutely no phone reception in the lobby area. Consequently, the lobby is filled with angry people texting message away like mad! Do you think they have done this intentionally?
c) When making your hotel reservation, be sure to ask for the most uniquely-shaped rooms, because....boy, do they have them. Ours had this most awesome dressing and make-up area and yet the bathroom itself, was quite small.
The company I work for, Worth New York, went above and beyond, for the Fall Preview 2012! We had the all-company cocktail reception, we had regional dinners, and Leadership Award meetings, and breakfasts and seminars on fit and how to grow your business and some of us even had midnight lobby bar champagne parties.......and the very best part............a full Fashion Runway Show! It was definately WORTHwhile! Thanks to the Worth staff/employees who worked so hard to make sure we had a valuable and enjoyable event...........you all are the very best in the apparel industry!
I know you are dying to see the Fall line, so here you go:

Tomorrow, I will tell you about the hilarious times (crazy Indian cab drivers, being 50+ at 2 am in the Big Apple and the true definition for the "Meatpacking District") I had over the weekend in NYC with my son and daughter-in-law, but like I said, I am exhausted, so this is all you get for now!
Time for a nap...................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
