New York City With Cashmere & Cupcakes


One of the things I love most about NYC is all of the events. On any given night, in any given part of the city, you will find events for all sorts of fabulous things. Book launches. Magazine fashion shows. Movie premieres. I used to go to a lot more of them when I worked in magazines, but now that I don’t go to as many, that makes them all that much more special when I do.

Tonight it was all about cookie decorating. Emily Schuman of Cupcakes & Cashmere fame brought her fabulousness to Club Monaco on 5th Avenue for some appetizers, drinks, cookie decorating and discounts. (Club Monaco stuff is nice, but I mean …. that sch&*% can be expensive! Even with the 20% discount that attendees received I didn’t end up buying anything ….).

So I grabbed a friend and we headed on over for the fun.

Emily in all her glory. It was like a celebrity sighting.
(And yes, I’m aware how stalkerish this photo is.)

The clothing displays were so sophisticated. I thought there was something really beautiful about them.

This looked pretty, but it seriously tasted the worst.

After the event we didn’t quite feel like going home yet, so we headed over to the Union Square Holiday Markets to check them out.

I just love the Empire State hiding out in the background.
