Oh, I also forgot the wine.  Thanks to Diageo's new wine division for all the fabulous wine pairings. I am actually not a huge fan of wine. I am more of a champagne and a vodka girl myself but I did find most of the wines quite refreshing and enjoyable. It is not everyday that I get the chance to taste a large array of wines with gourmet cuisine. 



The Lexus

I also had the chance to check out a few models from Lexus. This was my favorite one from the night. I love the style and the interior! Shout out to Lexus for hosting this event! I loved that all the guest got a up close and personal look at some great automobiles in the Lexus rooster. Hopefully when I can do Heavy on Fashion Full time, I will be buying myself one of these bad boys!

The Scene 

DJ Lil Mic was great. He played a mix of the hottest records with a few classics mixed in. By the middle of the event, many people where dancing, sipping on some wine, and eating some gourmet meals.  It was a really great atmosphere. The crowd was pretty good and everyone was really enjoy the vibe Uptown Magazine brought to NYC.

The ambience of the Lauren Gabrielson boutique was classic! 



Popchips was one of the sponsors for the event! 


You can't go wrong with a glass of Wine.

Great tunic dress especially for the next summer.

My Look


A new hairstyle style. Not sure if I am going to keep this look. 




I love this dress especially for the pockets. A great find at Macy's plus size section! You can not go wrong with a LBD.  I am a huge fan of kitten heel. I love these earrings, thanks to Trendenzas. They are Absolutely fabulous. I will talk about Trendenzas.com in a post later this week. Mostly  doe to the fact that kitten heels are the only pair of heels I can walk in besides wedges. 


The Swag Bag

Here is a look at my swag bag for the evening. Everyone who came out received a great gift bag. I am also happy to say that I am one of many winners of the door prize, a large bottle of Natori perfume! Cool right. Just goes to show that it pays to come to an event on time.
