Refinery29 is, hands down, one of my favorite websites/blogs. I get a million emails everyday from different fashion/lifestyle brands I subscribe to, and truthfully I usually spend a maximum of 5 seconds looking at each one. I open almost every single article on Refinery29, though. The stories are relevant, fun, cool, interesting, and a million other positive adjectives.
One piece I loved recently is 20 Free Summer Events in New York. There are so many free events in the city that I had no idea existed, and some of them are really cool. For instance, I popped into MoMA’s free Friday nights last week to kill time before a dinner with friends. I’ve also been to the High Line and L.O.V.E.D. it. Separate post to come on that. For now, check out the link and start crossing things off the list!
This dress from Madewell just may be my favorite item of clothing I’ve bought this year. It’s made of sweatshirt material, so it’s literally one of the most comfortable things ever. It’s also very flattering, as it’s tight on top to show off curves but loose below the waist. If the dress came in multiple colors, I swear I’d buy it in every one. I have to restrain myself from wearing it to work everyday. I’m already picturing it with tights, boots, and a blazer come fall…
Also, the sweet salesperson at Madewell told me about their shopping parties. If you arrange one, they’ll provide you with a stylist, desserts, and discounts. You get 20% off your purchase, while your friends get 20% off purchases over $125. Sounds fun!
Go out right now and pick up a copy of Mrs. Lilien’s Cocktail Swatchbook! The book is chock full of delicious looking cocktail recipes. I had the pleasure of trying a raspberry and cucumber wine spritzer at a party celebrating the book at Jonathan Adler in SoHo on Thursday night. I met Mrs. Lilien herself and found her very sweet and tres glam in glittery eyeshadow. I trust that the rest of the recipes are as fabulous as she is.
