The Met Gala (well, my version ;)

I was so excited when a client & friend invited me to the opening party last week for the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Met.  It was the perfect reason to buy a pretty new (neoprene!) dress- my sister helped me pick it out last Tuesday, one of the best days of my life.  (If you ever want a super fun shopping experience make sure to visit Steve at Cynthia Rowley's boutique on Bleecker Street in the West Village.  We listened to an 80's playlist, laughed a lot & tried on cute clothes- I was pretty much in heaven.)
There are so many bold & interesting colors in the dress, I had fun with the makeup too- peridot nails, eyes lined in electric blue eyeliner set with shadow, metallic lilac eyeshadow & sparkly light pink lip gloss...
I literally had to pinch myself....the DJ was spinning Biggie & Drake, I was sipping champagne at a glamorous party at the Met, the exquisite works of fashion legend Charles James were on display...I thought to myself, This is EVERYTHING I stand for (well besides peace, love & butterflies & all that)...
 Supermodel Karen Elson put on a little concert.  Those are candles lining the stairs, simple yet stunning...
& as if things couldn't get any better I chatted with the incredibly talented Emilio Sosa of Project Runway All Stars & Season 7!  He is just as humble & mild mannered as he appeared on the show & I was tickled pink to be talking fashion with him- the cherry on top of a dreamy NY evening :)
