Last week, I attended the Bob Mackie Launch Event at Screaming Mimi’s, a popular vintage clothing shop. The event was exciting and unique. I felt inspired by the clothing, sun glasses, jewelry and costumes from every decade. At the event, Mackie’s team launched their notebook collection with gorgeous sketches of his costumes. They are currently running a contest, “Give Me a Mackie,” to win a gorgeous ivory gown from Bob Mackie’s very first collection.
On a sunny afternoon, I decided to take a walk through the East Village. The East Village has a quirky mix of qualities. You’ll find walls of graffiti, vintage shops, dive bars, as well some of New York’s swankiest restaurants. The East Village is where the hipster meets the trend setter. I love this about New York City. I find a different adventure in every neighborhood.
