Chic's travel columnist Rebecca Minkoff checks in during her post-Fashion Week staycation in the Big Apple!

"New York is quite possibly one of the best cities to indulge in a staycation. And while it goes without saying that many busy New Yorkers can find everything they need within a 3 block radius of their apartment, I decided to venture a bit further in order to enjoy the weekend between our Fall 2012 show and my upcoming three-week business trip to Asia. As an added bonus, my family was in town to see the collection (my Mom is now a huge Theophilus London fan!) and visit with baby Luca.

Our first stop was a post-show lunch at Dos Caminos. Admittedly not new or undiscovered, as native San Diegans, we continue to return for their amazing guacamole. It reminds us of our SoCal childhoods and our close proximity to some of the best avocados around. We spent the rest of the afternoon recouping from the show and prepping for our after party at the Darby. It was a wonderful evening seeing old friends and celebrating our phenomenal reviews.

On Sunday, I mixed a bit of business with pleasure and visited the home décor mecca, ABC Carpet and Home. They carry the perfect mix of obscure, vintage inspiration pieces and known favorites like Madeline Weinrib--perfect fodder for the inspiration board for our Japan retail store interiors. My own apartment incorporates many of their eclectic touches, and I want that same spirit to come through when we open in Ginza. I started out on the 6th floor exploring their rich, color-saturated rugs and finished off the afternoon at the café at ABC Kitchen to refuel with a shot of their green juice from Organic Avenue (and a cookie plate for good measure)!  

As the crisp afternoon wound down, my parents and I took advantage of the remaining sunlight and walked from Union Square back to Nolita with baby Luca--three generations enjoying a few moments of calm before the next fashion adventure was to begin.
