Cocktail lounges in Manhattan run the muck, with many of them having a dark presence with nothing really that outstanding to look at.  The Skylark is the exact opposite of that premise, as the location whisks you off to its 30th floor where you will see spectacular views of Manhattan with some tasty bites and unique drinks to make your experience truly one of a kind.

As another New York Fashion Week becomes a memory what remains in its wake is the fact that the fashion industry is, by some estimates, the second most polluting industry on the planet.  I mean, do we really all need new clothes every season? But on the last day of NYFW LIVARI made its debut.  A collaboration between environmental and feminist activist Alysia Reiner (award winning actress from Orange is the New Black), Claudine DeSola (celebrity stylist and founder of Caravan Stylist Studio) and Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs (designer of Tabii Just and Women’s March organizer), LIVARI is a zero waste, women-led, women-designed collection ethically made in New York.

I don’t often recall Geoffrey the giraffe in the middle of a play. If you’re a child of the eighties, you might remember this congenial ungulate as the mascot for Toys R’ us toy stores.  I can vividly picture his star turn in the commercials from Saturday morning cartoons. Various happy children would embrace their joy-giving gadgets and sing, “I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a Toys R’ us kid. They gotta million toys at Toys R’ Us that I can play with.”  As the commercial ended, Geoffrey sat silhouetted on a bench, staring at the sunset and granting a warm embrace to a child. The campaign was genius. It encouraged kids to put items on their wish list and supplied adults with a heaping dose of childlike wonder.

Sitting at a fashion show watching the models effortlessly breeze by it’s easy to take for granted all the hard work that goes into the creation of the garments they are wearing.  Not at Bibhu Mohapatra’s show.  The craftsmanship of his collection shines brighter than the runway lights. Bibhu’s designs are always stunning and this season’s offerings were no different.  Beautiful gowns worn by beautiful people with beautiful jewelry (also designed by Bibhu).

A lot of the music that we listen to often comes from the singer/songwriter’s personal life story in hopes that we are able to relate to what they are trying to convey.  A common theme in a lot of this type of music is pain from an experience or experiences they have dealt with in the past and are now using that in a musical way for many to hear.  This is exactly what Sammi Rae Murciano has done with her song “Reflection” and new EP that will be out this fall.

I have been a huge fan of Kristin Cavallari ever since her days on Laguna Beach and The Hills.  She took her fame from reality television and turned it into a fashion empire due to her lines with Uncommon James and Chinese Laundry, both of which were on full display last night as Bagatelle hosted an event with her during New York Fashion Week.
