NEW RESTAURANT OPENING: Contorno’s Restaurant

I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening and media tasting event for family-owned, kaletra covid 19 store Contorno’s Restaurant, a rustic Italian Ristorante and wine cellar on West 31st Street located inside the new boutique Holiday Inn Express just steps away from the Empire State Building and the hustle and bustle of Herald Square. The open layout (with seating for 110) allowed guests ample space to explore and mingle.

Contorno’s is the passion project of the Impagliazzo family, who were looking to introduce NYC to the tastes and feel of their traditional Sunday Family Dinners; a time for family and friends to come together at the dinner table to talk, laugh, and share many small Italian tapas-style dishes of traditional, old world Italian food paired with fine Italian wines. Fellow guests and I enjoyed wine tastings as well as a selection of amazingly delicious “small plate” hors d’oeuvres from the menu developed by executive chef David Buico which included some of the following:

Hand Rolled Ricotta Gnocchi w/ Wild Boar Bolognese & Shaved Dry Ricotta, Gorgonzola and Fresh Honey Comb served on toasted Raisin Walnut Ciabatta, Old fashion Veal Meatballs w/ Chick Pea Puree, Shrimp Al Pancha w/ White Heirloom Beans, Homemade Fettuccine w/ Porcini Mushrooms, Grandma’s Homemade Spaghetti, etc. Featured in the photo below are just a few of the must-have entrees available at Contorno’s

Some of the wines, led by some of Contorno’s favorite sommeliers, indulged guests with wines from around the world.

On February 28th, Contorno’s introduced Wine Flight Tuesday’s.

Adrianna Papell For E! Live From The Red Carpet Design Contest Winner Unveiled

In September, the Adrianna Papell For E! Live From The Red Carpet launched a nationwide search for designers to submit red carpet looks for their Spring 2012 collection. After a rigorous nomination process through hundreds of submissions, they have finally announced a winner – Natalie Palter, a freshman fashion design student at Marist College in New York, was chosen the winner out of 700 designs for her Grecian goddesses-inspired gown.

Natalie noted “I have been designing ever since I could hold a crayon. I wanted to design a dress that would not only flatter any woman’s body, but also make her feel like red carpet royalty.” The gorgeous blue gown delicately drapes the female form, while crystal baguettes accent the décolletage and natural waist.

The Juicy Couture D.I.Y Charm Collection

Before the Fashion Week madness begun, Juicy Couture held a cocktail event to celebrate the launch of the newest addition to their adorable range of charms, the Juicy Couture D.I.Y Charm Collection. Juicy invited media to come couture themselves with charms from their new more delicate collection of the fashion accessories that you can mix and match. The vast selection of stylish charms features everything from strawberries, elephants, wishbones, initials, animals (we love the dragonfly), geometric shapes and much more .that can be worn on both bracelets and necklaces.

We, and we’re sure this happened to several other media attendees, were brought back to our childhood as we oohed and ahhed over the captivating charms. As you cam imagine, selecting two favorites was quite difficult, actually quite impossible as the variety of Juicy Couture charms was amazing large.

We were also given the chance to find out if we will truly live the charmed life with readings with Astrologer, Susan Miller, whose’s website, Astrology Zone, is a must visit.

EMU Australia Fall 2012 Collection

I was so sad to miss last season’s EMU Australia show at Style360 but I made sure I was available this time to catch the EMU Australia Fall 2012 Collection show, again held at the Metropolitan Pavilion as part of the Style360 Shows. The Fall 2012 collection, inspired by the natural elements of Australian and Nordic fur trends, featured an almost all neutral color palette, earth tones such as mushroom, chocolate, toffee, red earth, clay, hedge green and boysenberry.

emu1emu2

The collection exhibits EMU’s unmistakable ties to the Australian environment with looks featuring meticulous outerwear including a double-faced sheepskin coat with a vintage Nappa finish, snow tipped long hair sheepskin vests and jackets, tailored merino wool pieces, and cozy cardigans and sweaters.
For footwear, the focus was on sheepskin and Nappa leather styles. The comfy shoes (whose styles I like so much better than their competition) are 100% super soft waterproof Australian Sheepskin that is thicker which gives their boots more structure. They feature anatomically correct sheepskin lined insoles, a tough rubber outsole, and molded heel cups. The fashionable boots featured textured leathers, stunning trims, and metal embellishments. My favorite styles were, of course, the leathers, particularly the cool Leeville Boot in Mushroom (below left) and the Sandon Boot in chocolate (below right) – both make great everyday boots. A non-leather favorite was the Miva Boot in mushroom (4th photo) – one glance will have you fall in love as well.

The main event began when Michael Strahan challenged a few lucky fans to a friendly game of Madden ’12 on the BlackBerry PlayBook. The competition was tough, but Michael, sporting his white sweater with snowmen and stockings, offered fans tips on how to defeat the master in his own game.

It was non-stop hilarious commentary, tips and tricks from Michael Strahan as each fan tried their best to win.

Fans who attended the event scored their tickets to the party, BBM’ing gloves and a new BlackBerry Bold 9900 through an online contest hosted by BlackBerry. To win, they had to submit a BBM Ugly holiday sweater avatar and tell BlackBerry via Twitter what BlackBerry product is on their holiday wish list. 12 winners won an opportunity to join a BBM group conversation to chat personally with Michael Strahan via a Twitter contest where fans shared a time Michael Strahan made a “Bold” move on the field.

Throughout the evening, party guests nibbled on tray passed hors d’oeuvres and sipped spiked cider while posting photos and documented all of the festivities via live Twitter feed, which was on display for BlackBerry fans at the event, and provided updates to those at home who weren’t able to join in on the action.

2012 AGTA Spectrum Awards | Exquisite Award-Winning Jewelry

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the 2012 AGTA Spectrum Awards, considered the finest jewelry and gemstone competition in the world. I even got the chance to vote on my three favorites (an amazingly difficult task) and I was trying to wait to find out if any of my choices was voted as Editor’s Pick but I sadly I guess it didn’t. The AGTA Spectrum Awards featured over 500 pieces of jewelry from designers like Erica Courtney, Heather Moore, Katey Brunini and Todd Reed (who I’ve previously featured on this blog) along with museum-quality gemstones. Each piece is examined by hand with an eye for craftsmanship and quality of the materials used.

The AGTA Spectrum Awards features various categories like Bridal Wear, Business/Day wear, Classical, Evening Wear, Mens Wear, etc. Once you see some of these pieces, you will see why it was so difficult to select just three. Below are just a few of my favorites. If I had to post all of my favorites, this would be an extremely long post (and yes, I had to choose only three out of all of these). To see more exquisite jewelry and designers, click on each bold /red title category below

Bridal Wear

18K white and rose gold “Mimosa” pendant by Yehouda Saketkhou

18K white and rose gold ring featuring two half-moon Diamonds by Alan Friedman (my dream engagement ring)

Business/Daywear

Evening Wear (I must admit, most of my favorite pieces are from this category)

18K yellow gold ring featuring a carved black Jade fish with fire Opals by Manya Tessler

I love this statement piece – Palladium and 22K yellow gold locket featuring blue Moonstones, grey and white Diamonds, blue Sapphires opening to reveal a Moldavite Buddha by Todd Reed (this amazing wearable art won Best in Show)
