FNO with LVF

NYFW has past, but FNO will always a memory of craziness.

Although it was my first time venture out for Fashion's Night Out, I was not alone - Dalin from La Vida Frills decided to team up and find out what all the insanity was all about.

I do mean insanity.

Four hours to get into the Missoni @Target Pop-up Shop in Bryant Park. Kim Kardashian and Pauly D shut down DASH.  We were at none of these.

Cupcake of the Week : Anna Sui

From Anna Sui makeup launch party. On another note I saw her in the store, but was too chicken to say congratulations on her latest show.

Orange is "In" - Anna Sui Launch Party 9/15

Gotta love email newsletters
So what do you think of New York Fashion Week so far? Current favorites of my are Charlotte Ronson, Richard Chai, and Vivienne Tam.

Unfortunately spring is too far and summer is clearly ending. So to remind people, autumn isn't so bad, Anna Sui's throwing a party to celebrate the launch of her Autumn makeup collection for 2011.

From 6-8PM on Thursday, September 15th, Anna Sui store will be giving free mini makeovers. For purchases over $75 you get a free cosmetics case.

So try some makeup, browse around, or perhaps congratulate Anna Sui on her latest fashion collection (Note: Her fashion show is September 14th 6PM. Check LiveRunway for Anna Sui and other designer's collection. They also loop the shows that day in case you missed them live.)

Willkommen to Cafe Marlene

Ode to Marlene Dietrich 
As much as I enjoy being a foodie in Manhattan, Queens should get some love too.

Cafe Marlene is a cozy little cafe that reminds you of Old World Berlin. Inspired and named after And its no wonder, the owners were inspired to open this little spot after Marlene Dietrich, film noir Hollywood actress and singer.

Like Boardwalk Empire? Like vintage trains? Just like anything vintage?

To get ready for the premiere of the second season of Boardwalk Empire, HBO gives MTA riders a chance to travel on an authentic Prohibition-era train every weekend of September from 12PM to 6PM.

Just wait along the uptown 2/3 line until you spot an old-timey train with the windows open (they didn't have A/C back in the day). The train runs between 42nd and 96th street, running along the express line. 

Feel free to dress up or down, but just remember to bring your camera. Last Sunday I had the opportunity to take a ride into the 1960s myself and took a few pictures.

Cupcake of the Week: Cupcakes = Love

Decided to put my own spin on Cupcake of the Week, which will feature anything related to cupcakes. This was noticed in window of Butter Lane Cupcake's East Village location.

Cannot agree more.

Unicorns Everywhere - Big Gay Ice Cream Shop Opening

Had the opportunity to check out the opening of the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. Definitely worth the wait, especially for a first-timer like myself. Check out their Twitter @biggayicecream for minute-by-minute updates. 

In the mean time, check out pictures of the place I managed to take while inside. And for those already addicted, they have loyalty point cards available.
