Uniform Isabel Marant When you on the Team...

I had a doctor's appointment this morning on the Upper East Side and was then meeting a friend for lunch downtown.  Since I finished early, I took the opportunity to do something I haven't been able to do and have missed doing since I started work: walk.  I walked the 60 blocks from E. 72nd down to E.12th and, besides the obvious reward of a margarita at the end, relished the chance to just people watch and look at everything and how all the stores have changed since I first started regularly going up there.

The most major change I noticed is that the Juicy Couture store that in 2006 took up so much of a Madison Avenue block now appears to be a tiny, one floor shop with hardly any store space.  It's funny how things like that change when so many stores that are on Madison in the 60s and 70s have really been there forever.

On the way, I stopped at Laduree on Madison for some macarons.  I've heard nothing but good things about them but never got around to trying one for myself.  Despite the hefty price ($2.80 each for a tiny little thing!) I have to say they were worth it.  They were softer and more decadent than I could have imagined, and I wish I had waited long enough to get some pics of something more than the bag.

yes please.

I am supposed to go to a dessert party tomorrow night but I am not sure if I will because of the traffic issues this weekend.  If I do, I may have to make some macarons.  I've read they are very difficult to make, has anyone tried them?  If so, how have they turned out and can you offer any tips and tricks?  I could use them!
