Bucket list item… check! I have always wanted to go to New York Fashion week. It was a dream come true when Midori Linea’s PR team contacted me to attend their event. Sakura and I met a while back during a trunk show at Bloomingdale’s and we hit it off right away. She’s not only super talented, she’s super sweet. It all started with her designing a hand chain which you can see in my post here. Since then she has expanded into so many different areas. I’m obsessed with my latest necklace purchase. Stay tuned!
The W Hotel Downtown hosted the event and we were lucky enough to get an upgraded room with an amazing view of the Freedom Tower and the Oculus. The vibe there is very New York swanky chic. I don’t stay in the City so often since it’s only 45 minutes from my house but I wish I did. You can’t beat the energy of the hustle and bustle and everything it has to offer.
Then the panic sets in. Holy crap. What to wear to fashion week? I had gotten this outfit for another event and was supposed to be able to wear it on New Year’s Eve, but a sick hubby transformed my outfit into pyjamas. So not blogworthy. I think I nailed it! My hubby doesn’t usually enter the blog but he finally got to wear his very special Bloomingdale’s Exclusive Robert Graham shirt with crystals so I had to show you! Enjoy!
Oh! Lubi liked the room too!

I can’t tell you how excited I was when I received an invite to the “Fall For Free People” event at Bloomingdale’s in Bridgewater this past weekend. Free People and Bloomingdale’s — these are a few of my favourite things! It was also a Fashionable Fundraiser which was in support of amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to ending the global AIDS epidemic through innovative research. Shopping for a good cause is always a good thing and Bloomingdale’s pledges to make a donation of $75,000 to amfAR as part of the event. There was so much going on from refreshments, to a sketch artist who was drawing amazing fashion sketches of the shoppers and of course I was assisted by my favourite Bloomingdale’s stylist ever. He’s amazing and is always there as my partner in shopping crime! It was so much fun to meet all the great people from Bloomingdale’s and have the opportunity to blog the event. Coincidentally this past Sunday was three years from when I had my mastectomy (hence the pink outfit) so being able to be there and have fun was awesome. Even Lubi got in on the action! Thanks Bloomies!

This past Sunday was reserved for a special event at work. You get to see me in action. This is what I do — where I do my magic. I sell frames and make people look awesome! (Or at least I try!) Glasses are such an important accessory. Like jewellery for your face. We hope the first thing people notice is our face so let’s make it look good! You can have so much fun playing with colours and shapes that complement you and when it comes to sunglasses — sky’s the limit! There’s a special guest in this post too wearing some pretty awesome specs! Aren’t we adorbs? Hostesses with mostesses!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Arthur and Livingston Trunk Show and Necklace Bar event at Bloomingdale’s Short Hills and meet the amazing designer Nicole Antoinette. Both Nicole and her creations are absolutely lovely. I had a blast trying everything on and talking with her. It’s not often that you get to meet the inspiration behind what you wear. Such beautiful colours and concepts! I couldn’t help but get one for myself!
For my outfit I went with simple chic. I wanted a very simple top that would appropriately show off the jewellery. Fortunately it was a nice cool day so I got to pull out my new Chelsea boots for the first time. Yeah! It was also coincidentally right after I had my hair done. Perfect timing!
Don’t forget that these are the last few hours of the giveaway which ends at Midnight EST on September 24th! You too could win one of these amazing, trendy bar necklaces for yourself!
