One of the funnest parts of New York Fashion Week is attending parties, dinners and lounges hosted by brands and media outlets to network and celebrate the week. Yesterday I joined Glamour at their Street Glam Pop Up Shop in the Chelsea Market, which is open to the public. Sponsored by brands like Garnier, Maybelline, Gilt and Philosophy, there were hair and makeup touch ups, opportunities to shop, a hair psychic (yes, for real) and more. My favorite experience though, was at the Armani booth with Armani Si.
To promote their latest fragrance, Armani Si, the brand had a booth set up romantically with rose petals and ribbons to spritz the scent on for sampling. With notes of vanilla, patchouli and may rose, the fragrance is light, but seductive. Since fragrance is personal, they had DIY monogrammed love notes readily available for visitors to write out and mail. Of course, I sent one to Joe with our "L" monogram on it. I also spritzed it with Si as a finishing touch.
If you're in NYC this weekend, check it out. I also stopped by Garnier to get my hair styled, shopped the Gilt x Glamour shoe collection and had my hair fortune ready by Glamour's Editor-at-Large, Theodore Leaf, who's fantastic. By hair fortune, I mean this guy is a stylist (look him up) and was on point with the ladies and gave specific consultations on what they should do with their hair. I heard a bunch and kept agreeing with him. Everyone appreciated his advice.
