Shop & Mingle Manhattan

"These women shop for lunch! Labels are their only sustenance! Their skeleton legs in Manolos have worn trenches down the pavement of Sloane Street. Their arm sinews have just enough muscles left in their arm to lift up a credit card."Joanna Lumley as Patsy, 'Absolutely Fabulous'

Hey Y'all,
So the Fashion Bomb and ValStyle's first event was a great success!
There were tons of cute items, including lovely Botkier and Marc Jacobs bags...

Designer jeans by Habitual, Diesel, and Seven for all Mankind...

...$80 Marc Jacob wallets and assorted accessories...

...and a closet full of designer threads...

...with tops, t's, dresses, and jackets by Ella Moss, Diane Von Furstenberg, Theory, Velvet, Phillip Lim, and more.
Fashion devoteees trickled in during the day to sip on delicious mango mimosas...

Chit chat...

Meet new people...

And of course, shop!



You know I didn't leave empty handed! I scooped up two saucy, patterned, silk dresses...


...by this great label, Bilingual. Each dress was $220 regularly, but I got 'em for $80 each. A steal and perfect for the warm weather (whenever it comes).
So the event was fun, and it was great to meet my fellow fashion enthusiasts!
In case ya missed it, our next shopping event is in April, and it promises to be bigger than the last. Stop on by and say 'hi.'
And for those of you who did drop in: Thank you and see you at the next one!
Smootches!
PS My girl over at The B Life blog was also there. Check out her blog here for more pictures and commentary.
PSS The Fashion Blog Hip Candy recently reported that Queen Latifah has a new plus size line...

...called Curvation. According to the website, the line is a, "true life-style collection that not only embodies the Queen's spirit and energy, but also the needs and shapes of an entire curvaceous population." Hail to the Queen!
