The Glam Squad

During our visit to the Fashion Week HQ we met the Glam Squad.  They styled our hair and touched up our makeup in their fun pink van.  The Glam Squad is a travelling salon.  You can call them wherever you, anytime, anyplace, in the city, and have your hair styled and a full makeover done.  They come to you and voila you get glam.  If can read all about the Glam Squad HERE.

The Standard Grill

One of the other highlights of fashion week was having lunch at the Standard Grill.  There is always great people watching at this chic restaurant but during fashion week it is really one of the best places to be.  Table after table is filled with models and the who’s who of the fashion world.  I actually was there twice during fashion week and each time was better than the last.  If you are visiting New York City, the Standard Grill is a MUST!!!

Chanel’s New Boyfriend

Another highlight of Fashion Week was the unveiling of the Chanel Boy.Friend watch.  It is a gorgeous tank style watch that comes in a variety of metal choices, strap colors, and sizes.  The design of the face of the watch is based upon the jeweled top of the Chanel no 5 perfume bottle.  We visited the incredible pop-up introduction, installed just for fashion week.  The watch is so beautiful…I tried it on and fell in love!

NY Fashion Week Head Quarters

Last Friday, I was invited to check out the Fashion Week Head Quarters on 14th St in the uber chic Meatpacking District.  This is the new hub set up for the week, which will host speakers, art installations and broadcast the shows on large screens for all to see.  I was lucky enough to join my friend Lucy Sykes for a book signing.  We enjoyed meeting Fern Mallis, founder of fashion week and have her sign her book for us.  We mingled with fashionistas, talked fashion, and future events.  It was so much fun to be among the creme de la creme of the fashion world, even if it was just for a few hours!!!

Also speaking of fashions, our W by Worth Sponsor, Susanne Carroll is holding a trunk show of all of their gorgeous fall line.  Please see the invite below and make an appointment to try on all the new looks!!!

Weekend Real Estate Stalking

I was so impressed with this once in a lifetime vacation, I just had to share it with you!!!  Elizabeth Taylor’s Palm Springs house is for rent.  How cool is it to share in Hollywood Royalty on your holiday.  This glamorous estate is the swanky area of Las Palmas and still contains many of Ms. Taylor’s own possessions.  Excuse me while I go call my travel agent!!!!!!!

The Man in a Red Bandana

I try to focus this blog on fashion, special times, fun recipes, and feel good topics, but today, September 11th we have to put all that aside and take the time to remember those who lost so much on this terrible day in 2001.  Here in New York, it is so important that we never forget and honor all the victims and their families.  Meet Welles Crowther, The Man in the Red Bandana.  He, like myself, was a graduate of Boston College and below is his incredible story.  Welles was a true hero.  Every time I hear his story, I get chills.  Welles, I am sorry I never met you, I really wish I had.  I am inspired by what an incredible person you were.  Here is to you, and ALL the incredible people we lost that day.
