This weekend officially marks the grand opening of the new C Wonder store inside of the Time Warner Center. Probably the coolest concept for an apparel and accessories store I’ve ever seen, making me feel like a little girl in a candy shop. While a green carpet stretches all the way out to the sidewalk, the inside of the store has a toy vending machine, bubble gum dispensers, giant balloons, RAINBOW-COLORED ZEBRAS!!!, and of course a DJ to keep the party going. This weekend, the first 300 customers each day (Saturday and Sunday) will receive a free gift card. EVERYONE, however, will get to participate in the fun festivities in celebration of the store’s grand opening. And for every customer who spends $20 or more, they’ll receive a limited-edition tote made especially for the grand opening.
So for my 3rd fashion season in a row, I got to spend an evening with The Glam Network over cocktails, dinner, and awesome gift bags at Beaumarchais in the Meatpacking District. I sat at Table 5 which apparently was the coolest table in town because I got to meet the nicest girls ever.

Thank you to The Glam Network and American Express!!!
The most pleasantly surprising fashion showcase this season has, so far, proven to be Rafael Cennamo’s S/S 2013 couture collection. Every piece was strikingly individual, lacking any sense of typicality or redundance in regards to a particular season’s expectations. To sum the entire collection up into one word – well, I’m not entirely sure any one word could do it justice.
