The Week in Pictures: 9.19.10 // Part 01: New York City

Last week, Gala, Molly, Jazzi and I were at the InStyle Lounge at Fashion Week and spotted these two striking ladies. The blonde looked at us and said “Personally, I’m more into avant garde fashion like you girls” as she clutched her wine glass with the longest silver fingernails I’d ever seen. She runs a company called Crybaby Productions. The brunette heads up a company called Tender Gloving Care. She claimed to be the personal stylist of the blonde. After some brief chit-chat, they waved goodbye and left the lounge in sky-high stilettos, trailed by their videographer. We were in awe. But, I am getting way ahead of myself…..

It has been an annual tradition of mine to fly to New York for my birthday and throw a joint party with Gala for quite some time now and this year was no different. Last Friday, I hopped on a plane and flew overnight, waking up in the city on 9/11 and getting stuck in snarled traffic. Gala and I spent the afternoon running around the city, picking up last minute party favors.

The party was exactly what we’d hoped for — very, shall I say…..Gothic Liberace?! Candy-colored cupcakes, a disco ball, balloons and skull goblets galore.

Gala and I spotted this very lovely graffiti on our way home.

After our party, Bianca joined me for the ModCloth party at 10 Degrees. We had an awesome time sipping chocolate martinis and chatting with photographer Kristin Cofer.

The next afternoon, Bianca and I decided to trek to Century 21, a massive discount designer superstore. While there are many amazing items lurking in the racks, don’t be fooled — not everything is wearable. We were completely dumbfounded by this pink fur / black mesh / lace skirt. My face says it all. REALLY?!!!

Bianca: “Hmmmmm….should I or shouldn’t I?”

Thanks…….but no thanks.

That night, Bianca and I went clubbing (how 2005 of us). Let’s just say that The Greenhouse is seriously amazing. If you ever have a chance to go, please do. The upstairs features a ceiling dripping in glass balls while the walls are covered in blinking lights.

On Monday, Gala, Jazzi and I went shopping in Soho. We all managed to share some unbelievable restraint. Some highlights: H&M’s displays and the Rodarte jacket at Opening Ceremony.

I have no idea what this art is but it’s so unbelievably cool.

On Tuesday (my birthday), I spent the afternoon in a meeting with Gala, Jazzi and Molly. Aren’t they adorable?

After the meeting, Molly took us to her top-secret members only club. It was beautiful.

That night, Bianca took me to a bar called Fat Baby. When we walked in, half naked men were serving cupcakes on platters. I wore a vintage red wool dress that I’ve had for ages.

I wanted to take a minute to mention this dress. On my way to a meeting with Gala, I realized how shockingly underdressed I was and we made a beeline for Urban Outfitters. We walked out with the three of same exact dress in the same size, in different colors. I think that this is a great demonstration on how the same dress can be styled so completely differently.

This week was fun but the adventure was far from over. On Friday morning, Bianca and I boarded a plane bound for Las Vegas. But, that’s another story for another time. Hold tight, the Week in Pictures: Viva Las Vegas™ edition is coming soon!
