Jenny McCarthy Rocks Out with All-Female Traveling Band, the Mrs

A few days ago we had the pleasure of attending a wonderful Mother’s Day event, hosted by Jenny McCarthy and benefiting Dress for Success. The #MrsMothersDay featured special guest musicians, the Mrs, a five member, all female band, who performed several of their hits, and debuted their new single, #YouToldMe. The event was a wonderful escape to a pink paradise at the gorgeous Weather Room at Top of the Rock with views as amazing as the event.

Guests were treated to a variety of delicious treats that seemed never-ending. From passed hors d’oeuvres, to the wall of decadent bites, delicious cocktails made with Deep Eddy Vodka, and the DIY doughnut decoration and Mocha Java coffee bar, we were in foodie heaven.

Since this event took place was right before Mother’s Day, attendees got the opportunity to send a postcard to their mothers, with postage and mail out being taken cared of by the event’s organizers (our mom really got a kick out of the cool postcard).

Throughout the event, artists from Graffiti USA worked on a mural commemorating The Mrs Band, their song, and words you’ve probably heard from your mom, in a live art exhibit.

Before the live performance by the Mrs, we were entertained with great tunes by DJ Jena Red, but it was the Mrs that were the event’s biggest hit,a s they performed several songs to a very excited crowd

We had an amazin time at the event and we want to thank Liz Svatek of One Fabulous Mom, for the invitation.

Sir Ivan Welcomed Us to La La Land

International Banker turned Electro-pop recording artist, Sir Ivan officially released his new single and video La La Land and celebrated with an amazing and memorable Hamptons evening filled with drinks, dancing, guests in a variety of fun and daring costumes, merry-go-round rides, views of Sir Ivan’s gorgeous estate, called Sir Ivan’s Castle (the Playboy Mansion of the East Coast), and a live performance by Sir Ivan himself. Upon entry onto the grounds, guests were treated to crowns, capes, feather boas, giant bunny ears, etc to add to the idea of entering a fantasy land

It took some time for guests to loosen up and get on the merry-go-round but thanks to the sunset toast on the castle roof and a few glasses of the wonderful cocktails got the fun really going

La La Land, which he performed to the excited crowd, is Sir Ivan’s first single release following his highly acclaimed 2009 debut album I Am Peaceman, which primarily consisted of remakes of iconic anti-war songs from the 1960’s. True to his “Peaceman” persona, the words to La La Land depict a perfect world where there is actually peace on earth. At the event, he wore a metallic fuchsia suit and black cape with a glittering fuchsia peace symbol on the back which he happily showed off

La La Land comes on the heels of Sir Ivan’s last two single releases, which were back-to-back Top Ten global hits. The song was produced by the L.A. based team of RussellAli and Jason Evigan, who also created the melody, while Josh Skinner and Sir Ivan are credited with writing the lyrics. The new single features mixes by Grammy nominatedMidiMafia (50 Cent, Justin Bieber, John Legend, Nelly, etc.), Grammy nominated Rosabel (Jennifer Lopez, Gloria Estefan, etc.) and the hot new re-mixer duo Papercha$er (Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, etc.).

Sir Ivan also announced a very generous donation to the Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay , bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

G-SHOCK Kicks Off 30th Anniversary w/ EMINEM

G-Shock hosted a Press Conference, introduced a new logo and held an exclusive 30th Anniversary event to celebrate their new product launches and their 30th Anniversary. The day’s events started with a meet-and-greet with G-Shock’s athlete roster, brand ambassadors and the creators of the legendary timepiece. It’s amazing to think this brand was created in 1983 by Casio engineer, Kikuo Ibe

Attendees were shown a preview of G-Shock’s upcoming innovative technology including Bluetooth Technology, Triple G Resist and Smart Access as well as new product releases including new collaboration styles with Eric Haze, DGK, Clot and Burton.

G-Shock also announced a G-Shock and Eminem collaborative timepiece that will be released in Fall of 2013 right before we were ushered into the main event space of the Manhattan Center where Slaughterhouse opened for Eminem who took the stage for a private concert

The event also brought out several celebrities including John Leguizamo, Stephen Baldwin, Adrienne Baillon, Ice T & Coco, Paula Garces, Bryan Greenberg, etc.

Lands End Canvas Spring 2012 Collection

For Spring 2012, Lands End Canvas takes you on a favorite summer activity – the road trip. Discover the great influences along route 66 and beyond as Lands End Canvas takes you on a fashion journey from Paris to San Juan, Napa and Baja. Displayed in different vignettes, the All-American collection featured the brand’s usual layering as well as nautical stripes, plaid, gingham, khaki, easy knits, this summer’s staple – eyelets, and more.

The entire collection oozed easy, classic simplicity and comfort without being too boring. I especially loved the belted dresses – the bold prints, the sweet silhouettes, etc. I loved the unexpected surprise of polka dot underneath the navy drawstring dress. I’m always a fan of the Lands End Canvas accessories and quite a few caught my attention. I also fell madly in love with the crotcheted knit bag featured in the first photo collage above. Other cool accessories included colorful skinny braided belts, wide brimmed hats, fedoras, small cross-body bags, colorful ties for men (which I’ve always loved to use as belts).

Lands End Canvas featured two forms of entertainment, first was the live artwork on one section of the event space by art students from the School of Visual Arts, who painted non-stop throughout the entire event.

Second was a live performance by Boston-based band, The Wandas, who entertained the crowd beyond the end of the event.

Expect to see some of these looks online and in-stores starting this month.
