On The Scene: A Book Party For Friends (And Frenemies)
August 8, 2008
Wednesday night I attended the book release party of Friend or Frenemy? A Guide to the Friends You Need and the Ones You Don’t by Cosmopolitan editor Andrea Lavinthal and co-author Jessica Rozler. Of course, the party was packed with a slew of NY fashionistas and their friends (or frenemies) sipping cocktails. Now, wouldn’t it be my luck that the digital camera died on the subway but I can report on the major headlines from the party:
As you know, New York women are very into the gladiator sandal. If there was one pair of these lust-worthy Jimmy Choo Glenys Elaphe Snakeskin Sandals ($1,295) present, there must have been at least twenty. Ladies, scoff at the price but these shoes are GORGEOUS in person.
Head's up for fall: there was a lot of red at the party. One guest, Sarah, admitted to us that she is a mad Shopbop.com fanatic and recently picked up this gorgeous WAYF V-Strap Dress, which is currently on sale for $108.90, down from $363.00. Looking for something to heat up the night moving into winter? Take it from Sarah, girls, this dress is smokin’ hot and a great purchase.
The clutch was in full force that night – no huge designer bags like you’ve been seeing everywhere. I actually ran out after the party to pick up this J. Crew Satin Fleur Clutch ($98) for my own festivities after seeing it under many a champagne-flute-holding arm.
Anyway, feel free to grab yourself the book and some of the items seen at this hot little soiree. I’m personally saving up for the shoes.
