Jazz Age Lawn Party 2012

Jazz Age Lawn Party 2012 153

One of my favorite bi-annual NYC events happened last weekend— The Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island!

I harass my friends about going every year. They always debate whether or not it’s really as awesome as I make it sound…and then they see my photos, and regret not going! Never fear though: if you missed it, it happens again in August.

For this year’s June weekend of festivities, I attended the party on Saturday. A first, and honestly, not something I’m sure I’d do again. The past two years, I’ve gone on Sunday, which always seems to be more lively, and full of more dressed up, dedicated party-goers.

Either way, it was still fun, drinking in the sun, taking photos, and making some new friends. I don’t, however, recommend attending after you’ve had a late night out with friends. I was a bit late heading out, and only caught the last 2 hours of the event. (I won’t make that mistake again!)

Advance Warning: Carine Roitfeld at Bookmarc

Fashion and Books are two of my favorite things in this world. So I especially love when the two converge. Living in NYC, there are quite a few regular opportunities to meet favorite designers, editors, and photographers. But this is one event that I just cannot miss:

I spoke to Carine during a street style shoot outside of a nyfw show back in 2007. Just chatting with her for 3 minutes was incredibly inspiring and informative. This event should not be missed!

See a sneak peek of Carine Roitfeld: Irreverent, out October here.

Warby Parker at Bird

I LOVE Warby Parker’s line of quirky eyewear. So naturally, I’m very excited to finally try some of their new styles on at the launch party for Warby Parker at Bird! The two have teamed up to launch a shop-in-shop at Bird’s Williamsburg location. I’ll be there before heading up to Greenpoint for the SummerScreen movie night.
