Last Thursday, Hubby and I attended a cocktail party at the Guess boutique in Soho. The event was hosted by Eliza Dushku and Joe Zee from Elle Magazine to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer research. If you have ever worn a pink ribbon, it was most likely to support this cause.
Petite Eliza Dusku looked beautiful, though almost lost in a sea of other black-clad fashionistas in the room. The taller Rick Fox and Whitney Port of The Hills were much easier to spot. Mark Indelicato, the youngest of the Ugly Betty clan was romping around the party with his friend, along with a couple of reality tv staples, singer Mitsue and me. At the beginning of the party, it almost seemed that the guests were outnumbered by media (MTV, Bravo, NBC were all filming).
I must say, the Guess by Marciano collection has really stepped up their game, as there were some very cute party-worthy dresses. The handbags (I attended the party for the Purse Page) definitely had some edgy, designer style. They have come a long way since the Shopping Mall staples of my youth.
For a $5 donation, you received a 20% discount of any purchase, as well as a big goodie bag. Champagne and refreshing cocktails of vodka, Ginton and white grape juice made shopping that much more enjoyable. Nibbles of turquoise-frosted cupcakes, lobster/mango skewers kept the lightweights from getting too tipsy... (Hubby declared, "I LOVE fashion parties...No one eats, and there's more for ME").
