Tory Burch Denim Launch & Styling Contest
I had the great pleasure to check out the latest fall merch from Tory Burch in her uber-cool Meat Packing District store on Little West 12th Street – in addition, we were invited to take anything we wanted from the collection and style it with the new jeans – my styled look is above, at left!
Casio G-Shock ‘Shock the World’ Event with Ke$ha
Ke$ha, best known for her chart-topping singles “Tik Tok” and “Your Love is My Drug,” officially announced her roles as Brand Ambassador and designer at Casio’s annual “Shock the World” press event in New York City. The singer also served as the evening’s entertainment, performing a set of songs to us press members. Also launched was the new men’s Edifice watch, a more upscale approach to the G-Shock style.

Lord & Taylor: The Ultimate Face Lift Event
The storied department store on Fifthe Avenue is getting a complete makeover in the beauty department, and I was invited to check it out (they gave us pink hard hats as part of the theme -cute!). We met with representatives from Clinique, Lancome, and Estée Lauder to learn about their latest product offerings, and received services such as brow defining, blow outs, and makeup applications.
One of my favorite events of the summer, Nautica hosted a cruise on the Manhattan Yacht for a handful of bloggers to sail down the Hudson while taking in some Nautica eye candy (aka male models in swimsuits!), great food, drinks, friends, and a fabulous souvenir — Nautica sunglasses.
Call it Spring Launch Party
Call it Spring opened just a week ago in NYC’s Manhattan Mall, so I was invited down to shop and check out the new store and footwear offerings! From boots to flats, ALL styles are affordably priced (i.e. nothing hits $100) and the brand also offers some handbags and small accessories. Stay tuned for a post with my footwear picks from the event!
