Blogger Closet Raid.

This past Saturday, I went this event at the Tribeca Grand Hotel:

This marks the first little blogger event I've ever been to! I'm such a fangirl... I feel you being all embarrassed for me. It's OK. haha.

Wendy's, from Nitrolicious, collection of shoes up for sale. Note the LOUBOUTINS at the front.
If these are the shoes she doesn't mind letting go, HOW MANY MORE ARE IN HER CLOSET?!? geez.

Keiko Lynn chatting with Jennine.

As always, I apologize for the horrible phone pictures. Bad lighting = bad pics :(

This is what I ended up home with: From Keiko Lynn, I bought a dainty vintage shirt for $2! and amazing 80%20 shoes for $10!! (The boots are actually a bit big for me... but I figured with some socks in the winter they'll be fine! haha They were ten dollars, c'mon!!) And from Jennine from The Coveted, I bought those funky printed silk pants for $5!

I have to give Sammy from Sammy D Vintage a shoutout for being the most gracious blogger of the event! She didn't hesitate to introduce herself to those who were near her and offer her ear to friendly conversation. 

"Thank you MOOD!"

As a fan of Project Runway, I have been curious to visit MOOD Fabrics. While there, I figured I should buy some jersey cotton and make some tops for myself. Um.. yea.. that didn't happen. THEIR PRICES ARE RIDICULOUS! They may be of the highest quality, but I'll pass.

Even so, it was fun looking around. The staff was friendly, they must be very well aware that many people go there for curiosity alone. Most of the shoppers looked like they were FIT or Parson students, all very fashionably artsy.

I almost walked right past it, even tho I was intently looking for the building. My experience reminded me of a funny review I read on Yelp:

"1. Know where you're going.  There aren't any signs that tell you where Mood is.  It is located in a  non-distinct rundown building  in NY's Fashion District.  The best way to get here is to keep walking down 7th Ave until everyone starts looking ultra chic, and what you're wearing makes you sad.

2.  Once you've made it inside the building, you'll have to get to the elevator.  Resist the urge to push the buttons on the elevator wall.  They do nothing. Pushing extra hard will still do nothing. They are only indicator lights.  That guy looking at you like you're an idiot is the attendant, and he controls the elevator shaft.  You don't even need to tell him where you're going, he'll know.

3. You've made it to the main floor.  And just before you decide to take off, and rampantly toss bolts of fabric left and right reliving your glorious Project Runway fantasies, stop.  There are some super friendly and helpful workers who will cease to be friendly and helpful if you don't respect their inventory." -Lam N.

A peek into Kate Spade, NYC.

Last week, I got to make a little errand to the New York office of Kate Spade. The office space was so cute! and the showroom was so colorful! I wish I could've taken a tour but at least I got to snap a few pics to show you guys. I barely took any- to show you more I found the last two from Oh Joy!

Their front door looks like it was inspired by Mondrian!

Front desk and showroom behind it.

This is the waiting area directly in front of the help desk ;)

New York Shopping Guide- Darling Boutique.

"A small shop in the big city," no kidding! Blink-and-you'll-miss-it boutique Darling is a small hidden treasure in the Meatpacking District. The feel of the store is very english garden-ish but the clothes selection are very modern and sweet. Price range, between accessories and clothing: $10-$200.

Their small backyard is filled with antique outdoor furniture, which is re-arranged for privately held parties. Darling rents out this space to those who are interested in a small place for cozy gatherings.

CFDA Awards.

Every so often, we fashion PR interns get to see a glimmer of the glamourous, such as the invitations to the CFDA Awards!

If I was feeling well this past Monday night, I would've planted myself outside the Lincoln Center and devour the eye candy of the night!! Alas, I missed this opportunity. Thankfully Jamie Beck, the AMAZING photographer and blogger at fromme-toyou, was there and took the best pictorial coverage of the night:

Alessandra Ambrosio and Prabal Gurung.

Miranda Kerr, holy fierceness!

Diane Von Furstenberg.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.

Marc Jacobs.

Center Stage.

Also, she took many pics of the commotion backstage:

If you're lucky enough for your PR Company to need your interning assitance, this is where you'll be!

Sneak Peek of Aritzia SOHO.

"Shop Before the Shop" is the sneak peek boutique for Aritzia.

In all my excitement, I forgot to take pics of the actual boutique! 

But I did take snaps of their lovely Press Release booklet.

Sorry for the crappy pic quality, I'm using my phone's cam until I can a real one!
