lucky magazine’s lucky shops 2012

after an unfortunate reschedule due to the arrival of hurricane sandy, lucky shops finally arrived! i was honored and flattered and baffled to be invited by lucky to attend the vip night dressed solely in sponsored garb. (because, like, how often does that happen? i was like “heellllllllll yes.”) if you aren’t familiar with lucky shops, it’s when a few dozen brands are curated by the magazine and host booths in a big open space, offering marked-down goods to bargain-hungry shoppers for three days. it’s going down tonight and tomorrow. last night was a more private affair hosted by jennifer hudson. i was tempted to sing a little ditty called “and i am telling you,” but held it back. also in attendance were some fabulously dressed internet friends including rachel and sara (both seen above looking headless and amazing), hitha, eileen, jonell, and rachel.

i cannot thank foley + corinna, ettika, sole society, happy socks, and chloe + isabel enough for stepping in to make sure that i didn’t attend the event naked. and did you forget? you all picked my outfit! details to come.

note: yes, that is *the* anna corinna in the last picture. i love her.

the foley and corinna holiday dinner

last night, i had the pleasure of attending an intimate holiday dinner at jadis with fellow bloggers and the design duo dana foley and anna corinna of—yup, you guessed it—foley + corinna. the dinner wasn’t about new product or what’s coming up for their brand; rather, it was an opportunity to simply get to know them, which was a unique and fresh take on the typical fashion gathering. thus, this was certainly one of my favorite events in a long time simply because it allowed me to spend time with girls that i genuinely enjoy being around, drank dranks, and meet two extremely talented designers whose work i’ve admired for years. don’t even tell me you wouldn’t be psyched to eat with the creators of the ‘mid city tote’—it was like meeting picasso, you guys.

note: almost everyone in the pic above is on their phone. hilarious.

here’s what’s goin’ on right now:

  • if you’re on the united states’ east coast, please be safe. many of us have no idea what is going to happen until it does (i gotta be real, for new york to be placed in “a state of emergency” is semi-terrifying), but there is no harm in being well-prepared. the weather channel will tell you what you need to know.
  • halloween is on wednesday, but you’d have thought it happened this past weekend considering the costumed walks of shame and pools of throw-up.
  • lucky shops is on thursday and i am…for lack of a better word…lucky to have my outfit sponsored by a group of brands including chloe & isabel, ettika, sole society, happy socks, and foley & corinna. i need to say that the last label stepped up to the plate by filling in for a designer who pulled out without notifying me. though much of the current collection had already been disseminated for various projects, i was sent the remaining stock and would be going to the event naked if not for the lovely ladies at foley & corinna. with your help, i was able to decide on the dress to wear and can’t wait to show you the final look!
  • i now have a lot of time to re-organize my closet.

the foley + corinna fall 2012 collection

 

 

 

i’m sure you’ve been waiting all day to see the foley + corinna fall 2012 collection in its entirety. like, what else do you have to do? work? what’s that? anyway, i’ll let the images above speak for themselves because the line is just that good. please make note of the classic shapes, wearability, and obvious vintage inspiration. there should be no doubt as to why f + c has become a cult brand with bags coveted the world over.

(i am definitely going to need a moment with that chocolate brown croc tote.)

today is the day! what day? the day that i reveal the foley + corinna fall 2012 collection in its full glory. thanks to holly, i was able to stop by the brand’s showroom and get a tour of the latest offerings. the two styles above are the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. this is just a taste—more will be revealed later today.

spoiler alert! i will be revealing the foley + corinna fall 2012 collection next week, but for now, holly's talons will have to suffice…and what gorgeous talons they are.

note: the clutch in the photo above is by l.a.m.b. and was captured during my visit to the foley + corinna showroom. i felt it was too awesome of a shot not to share.
