The Shopstyle Social House was one event that I was SUPER excited about this season. I was thrilled to get invited to the Social House again and experience it all this NYFW SS17. I started my day with the Dan Liu show at the Skylight Clarkson Gallery. Then I headed uptown to the Glasshouses for the ShopStyle Social House event. This was one event I was looking forward to since I got the invitation. I was so happy and thrilled to experience and enjoy it all with my gal pal and fellow blogger friend Loren. She’s the writer and creator behind the blog: Enlightened By Bravery. If you aren’t following her yet, you should. She’s just a great women, with great style and an amazing personality. Such a beautiful soul she has, and I’m happy to have met her. Check her blog out: www.enlightenbybravery.com and her Instagram: @EnlightedByBravery.
This look was my favorite outfit I wore during NYFW. Probably not the best choice for that particular day though, because it felt like a sauna outside in early September. But hey, it’s all in the name of fashion. And let’s be honest, I’m a slave to FASHION. Rock it and own it, which is exactly what I did. What’s great about this dress is that it still can be worn and style for the Fall months. Can’t wait to style and rock the look again soon.
We enjoyed getting our hair done by the hairstylist there that day. Sipped on champagne and Rose, browsed the clothing racks to borrow some FAB pieces to rock during NYFW. Thanks to Shopstyle, Sole Society, The Outnet Iris and Ink and Sam Edelman, for keeping me looking stylish and fashionably chic all throughout NYFW. We were also gifted great cross body bags by Gigi New York which were personally monogrammed for us by the Gigi New York staff. It was great to meet old and new friends as well as connecting with all the vendors at the event.

Changing up scenes from seeing the latest trends and styles from NYFW16 events and shows, my husband and I ventured uptown for the 2016 Release party for Sophisticated Weddings. Just your average Wednesday, hobnobbing with some of NY Society’s finest, industry elites, and much more. The event was held the beautiful, iconic and spectacular James Burden Mansion, located on the Upper East Side. The Burden Kahn Mansion is well known for hosting many upscale events and Weddings, here in the New York City area. The perfect venue to host the Magazine Release party for Sophisticated Weddings.
We enjoyed getting our photos taken by Cody Raisig, posing in their photobooth, tasting bite size hors d’oeuvres, while trying out some of their signature cocktails and spirits. I’m a firm believer in trying and supporting all local businesses and seeing what they have to offer. And if your having an upcoming event, wedding or party this was a great way to see what these businesses had to offer and see if they could be of some service for your upcoming event.
We were entertained by local band 45 Riots (one of New York City’s best bands), they did a fabulous rendition of Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love, ” fitting for the occasion. Overall, the Release party was a spectacular event. And my husband and I enjoyed ourselves, and met some great people over the course of the night. The 2016 Sophisticated Weddings: New York Edition is on sale now and it features two different covers simultaneously in circulations.
[” The first was photographed at the magnificent Burden Kahn Mansions, and features newlywed Vanessa Ray, one of the stars of “Blue Blood,” on CBS and “Pretty Little Liars” on ABC Family (Now known as FreeForm).” 2016 Cover A
” The second cover was photographed at the historic India House in lower Manhattan, with Molly Tarlov, the newly engaged star of “Awkward” on MTV.” 2016 Cover B – Sophisticated Weddings ]
The whole evening and experience made me reminisce our wedding day and the whole planning process. Made me want to do it all over again. Weddings and marriage is such a beautiful thing, and something to remember and cherish for many years to come. If your on the hunt for your ideal wedding venue in the New York City area, something that’s elegant, modern, but still will give you that classic/ lovely ambiance this is the place for you. There are so many venues to choose from but after seeing the inside of the location along with the decor and everything, I’d say this would be a beautiful place to have a wedding!!
If you’re newly engaged, getting married or married, congratulations and I wish you all the best now and always. Cheers to a lifetime of love, blessings and happiness!
