Lucky Shops 2011 VIP Night Recap

Makeda from Glamazon Diaries, Lara (me), Eileen from Miss Who Ever You Are

What an exciting weekend! Friday night I was one of the featured bloggers for Lucky Magazine’s Lucky Shops VIP event (you may have noticed me tweeting up a storm).  I partnered with the publication to serve on their blogger committee which was nothing short of fabulous; I was so honored to be working with them.

The VIP event kicked off the annual Lucky Shops, which is 3-day shopping event, where dozens of our favorite designers sell their merchandise at up to 70%! It’s a fashionista’s dream, which NYC is not short on; so needless to say, it was packed.

My fellow committee members included  (check out their awesome blogs!): New York Girl Style, Miss Whoever You Are, My Style Pill, The Beauty File, Cheetah is the new Black, Nubia’s Nonsense, Audrey Allure, Honestly WTF, Cheap Chicas, Platinum Blonde Life, Style Cusp, Glamazone Diaries and of course myself, Pretty Connected.

On the red carpet...
Bloggers unite!

I met the glam team at Bloom Beauty Lounge to start the night out right with some blow-outs and styling. I went with my signature blowout with a some added curls and volume (I call it the Victoria’s Secret model blow-out) to compliment my awesome outfit  [Shirt/Shorts/Boots: Nicole Miller; Tights: Joe Fresh; Necklace: Banana Republic; Belt: The Limited]. Once our hair was red-carpet ready, that’s just where we headed — to the red carpet where we joined the likes of  Bridget Moynahan, Kaylee DeFer, Iman, Susan Lucci, Rachel Roy, Katina Bowden, and Erika Dasher to have our pictures taken and have exclusive coverage opportunities. Then on to go shopping!

I invited a few friends at the event and we bee-lined it to Rebecca Minkoff, and all walked away with a new purses. We circled the ground floor and then made our way upstairs to the Hunter Dixon booth. I’m new to their designs but am keeping them on my radar since I wanted everything in their booth! After settling on a pair of pants and skirt (my dates bought up just dresses and tops), it was time to move on. Two Lucky Shop shopping bags full later, I was cut off.

In love with my new Rebecca Minkoff bag!

We then headed to the Lucky Shops after-party at the Crosby hotel for a private advanced screening of Jane by Design starring Erica Dasher, Andie MacDowell and a whole lotta good looking men. As someone who probably doesn’t watch enough television, let alone ABC Family, I found it entertaining and fun without being cheesy (as I find most shows geared towards teenagers to be). If follows unpopular (although very fashion forward) high school student, Jane (Erica Dasher) as she applies for a fashion internship and instead mistaken for an adult, accidentally lands a part-time job. For the love of fashion, I’m sure this show will suck me right in — although it doesn’t premiere until January 23rd, so you’ll just have to wait to see what I’m talking about.

Thank you Lucky Magazine for a great night and the amazing opportunity to work together!

Mrs. Seinfeld Host Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash

Jessica Seinfeld

It was raining mommies and kids at the Baby Buggy Bedtime Bash hosted (and founded) by Jessica Seinfeld at the Victorian Gardens in Central Park. The space, which many know as the Wollman ice-skating rink in the winter, is transformed during these warm months into a kids amusement part; and was the perfect place to celebrate Baby Buggy’s 10th anniversary.

For those of you not familiar Baby Buggy, it’s a non-profit it works to provide families in need with essential equipment, clothing, products, and educational tools and services for their children. So if you’re looking for ways to downsize the excess possessions your kids have outgrown, definitely check them out, it’s such a great organization.

Tiffani Thiessen and daughter Harper

Celebrities (and their kids) got on board for the family-fun party filled with carnival rides, arts and crafts, fake tattoos and my personal favorite, jumbo go-fishing! Remember that game with the magnet and the plastic fish and you’d race to see who could get the most? It was like that only the fish were jumbo and were floating in a kiddie pool.

Kyle MacLachlan and son Callum

Aveeno was supporting the event and invited me to come hang out (part of the perks of being an Aveeno Ambassador!).  I’m not going to lie, the scene definitely felt like the set of a Mother’s Day photo shoot for Social Life Magazine. The highlight for me was seeing Jeremy Sisto (aka Elton from the movie Clueless) with his daughter and just fighting the urge to yell ‘Elton’, the whole time. When did he grow up? He’s supposed to still be in High School! Oh man, I must have watched Clueless 1000 times as a teenager, and seeing Elton all grown up and as a dad –I mean way to tarnish that totally scum-bag image. Pfff as-if!

I’m also pretty sure I saw Alison Brod running around in what I can only describe as pink Barbie heals. The shoes were amazing! I’d say I tried to take a picture of them but I don’t think the woman sat still the entire event —then again that’s probably why she’s such a PR rock star.
