20121025-222921.jpg There were two NYFW industry lounges at The Empire Hotel that really stood out to me during my time at Fashion Week!

My first stop was at the Allure Lounge hosted by Allure Magazine. As I entered the suite I was amazed at how much there was being offered to all those in industry; celebs, bloggers, editors, photographers, etc. my first stop was to Crystal Icing! I was mesmerized by the luster and sparkle that exuded from each crystal adorned item. Crystal Icing is known for their phenomenal work, crystallizing any and all products including cell phone cases, compact mirrors, clutches, nail polish bottles, perfume bottles, laptop and iPad covers, and so much more. For personal use or corporate promotion you can not go wrong with this glittering company! I believe they were the brand that crystallized Taylor Swift’s famous white crystal guitar. Snazzy! They were so wonderful enough to give me two iPhone cases, one was a black and white crystal case (shown in picture) and the other was a pink ombre crystallized case! I use them all the time and have a hard time choosing which one to use each day! I want my life to be crystallized by them!!!

Filled with lots of beauty bars that were giving guests complimentary facials, manicures, eye make up makeovers, with very little time to experience everything (I had to get to another show…giggles) I decided to have my hair coiffed into a beautiful sock/ballet bun! The Ricardo Rojas salon was giving women of the Allure Lounge the choice of a high sleek pony, or a perfect or messy bun! My stylist Alex was incredible, very knowledgable and so much fun to send time with! We chit chatted about hair, fashion and came the the conclusion that we have a few mutual friends, fun right? Alex asked me if I wanted a perfect bun or a messy bun, and since I’m always going for the sleek and perfect hair-do I figured I’d go for something different and a bit out of my comfort zone, after all fashion is about taking risks. MESSY BUN, I told Alex I wanted. He laughed and began sculpting. Because my hair is super-de-duper long, he had fun even when having to use 3 hair ties, 5x more bobby pins and 10x more hairspray! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE BUN and I can’t wait to have Alex do my hair again soon!

After my hair looked runway ready I finished off my pampering session with a spritzes of parfúme from the Sephora perfume bar and fixed my lashes with my favorite mascara from the Maybelline beauty bar!

Other vendors at the Allure Lounge included Renzo & Kai, Red Line Watches, Da-Sien socks, and TeQava (A sparkling tequila!! Smooth like Champaign but with a BITE! Party in my mouth!!! Yea, Yea, YEA!!)

I’m obsessed with the watch I was gifted with! I wear it every chance I get!! To be honest when it comes to watches I am extremely, extremely picky… I WANT THEM ALL!! I’d wear them all at once setting each to a different time zone! NY,LA,ISRAEL, ROME, LONDON, PARIS maybe TOKYO. I sound like a Hillary Duff song! Anyway, as you can see I love the Red Line & A-Line Watch Collection & you should too!!
Da-Sien is a sock lovers dream!!! They are super comfortable,plush and warm! But who likes wearing just ordinary socks? I know I don’t! As winter rolls around I can’t wait to show off the knee-highs and anklets they were so kind to give me! SOCKS ARE THE NEW TREND IN FASHION!! They are swell, So wear them well!! Wink wink!



Lots of vendors to see, so little time, but I managed to do it!!! Wahoo!!
Some favorites that exhibited at The Daily Style Sessions was Chantelle Paris (I wear their bras religiously…personal secret), That Madonna Girl , Alex & Ani (who I’m obsessed with) ShopSence.com, Clos Du Bois, and so much more!

20121105-181644.jpg Thank you to The Allure Lounge, The Daily Style Sessions, Chantell, Redline Watches, Da-Sien Socks, Maybelline, Sephora, That Madonna Girl, Clos Du Bois, TeQava, ShopStyle, & Tic-Tac for such a great experience and for all the swag! I can’t wait until next season!!
