On Thursday, January 30th Bella NYC Magazine’s editor in chief Courtenay Hall hosted a bloggers cocktail party at Manon in the Meat Packing district of New York City in honor of their new Style Director; Derek Warburton. #DineWithDerek!!!

Fashion bloggers from all over the tri-state area braved their way through the frigid-cold to attend this fabulous event. In a prettier than pink theme the mezzanine of Manon was decorated with lots of pink balloons, lollipops, candy, confetti, and lighting. Guests noshed on delicious passers and sipped on the evenings signature cocktails and champagne.Treat House NY provided the desert with their scrumptious mini rice crispy treats which everyone adored! The evening’s festivities also included the launch of Bella NYC Magazine’s new in book feature titled “Slammin Six”! Every month, one blogger will be chosen and featured in the pages of Bella NYC. How awesome is that?

As guests arrived male and female models were there styled by Derek in Fashion Week ready looks styled from Old Navy, Hipknoties, Lysse, Jane Basch Jewelry, Still Standing and more! NinetyThree Entertainment, LLC provided the fantastic music that kept everyone on their toes all night long, never wanting the night to end! Special guests included, Jackie Miranne from VH1, Marysol Castro and Julie Grauert of Pix11 and Carla Marie of z100’s Elvis Duran Show.

It was so wonderful to catch up with old friends while making new friends! It was also really inspiring to learn about each blogger’s individual story and how they decided to enter the fashion industry and start their blog. Bella NYC Magazine did a wonderful job. It was the perfect way to kick of the Fall 2014 Fashion Week season. Thank you so much for inviting me to attend and for being such a unique publication that showcases women’s originality and spirit in such a positive way.

A massive congratulations to Derek Warburton on being granted as Style Director for Bella NYC magazine! A Special THANKS to Dana Prigge for organizing such a fab evening, too!Till next Time!
