Totally Crushing on the Organic Awesome Amazingness of Solange!

Complex's June/July 2013
Complex’s June/July 2013

I love her music but it was her organic look, retro chic style, confident poise, and that abundant afro that had me crushing the first time I watched Solange in the music video Losing You.  Ever since I saw that video it seems like she is popping up everywhere. Performing at the MoMA, on the cover of Complex Magazine and as if I needed another reason to love her – Solange just did this collaboration with Refinery 29.  In this mini music video she shows off her style while kicking around South Brooklyn.

Matthew Williamson Launches MW Line

Matthew Williamson and Dree Hemingway

Gossip Girl made me in love with Matthew Williamson. Every time I’d walk by this store I’d fall for his colorful prints and whimsical long maxi dresses –although the $2,500 price tag generally kept me from walking inside. Why torture myself? So when I received an invitation from Refinery29 to the exclusive launch party of his new diffusion line MW Matthew Williamson, I was all over it!

With Dree Hemingway on his arm (looking stunning in her MW mini dress), Matthew Williamson walked the store mingling with guests and posing for pictures.

“The aim was really to offer a broader collection, with more units than we have in the line–I think it spans about 250 pieces in the diffusion line,” Williamson told Racked. “The idea is to have it at a lower price point, more accessible, and offer a slightly different slant on the main line. The main line is known more for print and colour and that sort of red-carpet aesthetic, glamour and jet-set and all those kind of ideas. So whilst those ideas have some synthesis within the diffusion line, I wanted to make it more about an urban wardrobe and less about speciality pieces.”

The collection ranges from $200-800, and is available in their Matthew Williamson store located at 415 West 14th Street, NYC

Refinery29’s Summer Jam Series

On July 6th, the cleverly hip and ever so stylish fashion and beauty website, Refinery29.com kicked off their Summer Jam series at the W Downtown Hotel.

Party at the W!

While I’m not generally one to be spotted in the financial district –uh pretty much ever –okay maybe a few times a year –I make an exception for friends that are tourists and that live in the area and now Refinery29!

I grabbed a group and hit the terrace. The inside was overly happening as guests flocked to the bar. As I maneuvered my way through the crowd to grab a drink, it was a reunion and half. I ran into old friends, new friends, old coworkers (I really must be on my 10th anniversary in NY).

Great DJ’s (Caitlin Moe and Mia Moretti was spinning!), good drinks, fun crowd, amazing friends, nice breeze… What more could you ask for?

The party continues July 19th through August 30th. Get in on it!
