2. C. Wonder is back with Brad Goreski as the new Creative Director


Mark your calendar’s for March 3rd when C. Wonder heads over to QVC. The recently acquired brand will be exclusive to QVC and boasts Brad Goreski as their new creative director! We got a sneak preview of the spring collection and it’s on point with all the merchandise we remember from the retailer: vibrant printed bags, enamel cuffs and jewelry, preppy clothes, fun flats and of course those signature bikes we wish we snagged before their stores closed. (Now we can!).

3. We’re Featured in the Caravan Stylist x Save The Garment Center Map Project On Display this Week for Auction!


Claudine DeSola of Caravan Stylist Studio asked New York “creatives,” ranging from bloggers, editors, photographers, artists, designers and TV personalities – including Charlotte Ronson, Shoshanna, Patricia Underwood, Byron Lars, Alice & Trixie, Dana Bronfman, and Me! to inventively decorate New York maps with a tailored selection of their top 5 destinations in NYC. I of course got carried away and picked 13 destinations. Mine folds up into a little square and comes with a notebook so you can take notes of your NYC trip. It’s also great framed flat! During Fashion Week, the original maps from all of the creatives, will be on display and auctioned off at The Gregory Hotel with proceeds going to Save The Garment Center, whose mission is to promote, preserve and save New York City as the fashion capital of the world.

This event is open to the public and the maps will be on display at the Gregory Hotel, 42 West 35th Street, NYC on February 11th-13th and 15th-17th from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. There are so many amazing ones up for grabs!


4. Beauty Crawl with ‘And I Get Dressed’: Sephora vs. Ricky’s

We all need a beauty blogger in our lives someone who listens to what you’re looking for in a product and then tells you what you need. This week in @itsmekellieb’s latest youtube video for And I Get Dressed I’m just that to take her on a tour of Sephora and Ricky’s. Top Sephora beauty picks for black eyeliner goes to NARS Kohliner. Best lip pencils: Tarte Lip Crayons. Best matte liquid lipsticks goes to Stila Stay All Day, Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick. Ricky’s excels more for hair and then expands in other categories of beauty. Instead of carrying a full line of one brand they usually take the top pick or cult favorite. And offer a great range of high and low prices. It’s also the place to get crazy eyelashes and more eccentric beauty finds which is why they are so known for their Halloween pop-ups. Watch the video for a peek at our day.

PC Hostes Save the Garment Center with The Cast of Orange is the New Black

Orange Is The New Black Save the Garment Center

One of my favorite nights from fashion week was when Caravan Stylist Studio asked me to host an event for Save the Garment Center with members of the cast of Orange is the New Black and Boardwalk Empire, plus some designers that are MADE IN NY!

Mondo’s Project Runway All Stars Dress Now Available at Nanette Lepore

Project Runway All Stars: Austin, Modo, Michael and Kenley
Me with Mondo!

On Thursday Night, I had the pleasure of joining the surviving cast members of Project Runway All Stars and Nanette Lepore at her store in SoHo for a private viewing party of that night’s episode. With only four contestants left, Mondo Guerra, Austin Scarlett, Kenley Collins and Michael Costello, this was a particularly exciting episode considering it would determine the 3 finalists that would be showing in the finale (for their chance to have their collection sold at Neiman Marcus!).

Nanette Lepore was a guest judge on the episode (along with Gorgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi) and the winner of the challenge would have their design sold at her store with the proceeds going to Save the Garment District. Despite some difficulty in hearing the episode from within the store, it was really exciting being with the designers as they showcased their designs, although much more nerve racking over waiting for the announcement of who was in and out. In all honesty, at the level these finalist are at I thought all the designs we’re good. Austin, was safe, Mondo won and Kenley and Michael fell to the bottom. Michael design was a little long but I thought otherwise very LA and wearable (it reminds me of a T-Bags dress I once owned) and Kenley, who despite picking a fabulous print, cut the print a little off and was eliminated.

Once the winner was announced, the designers final garments we’re put in the store for display and Mondo’s mass-produced design went on the racks officially for sale ($298). It’s so cute and spring, and I love that it has pockets! Congratulations Mondo!
