Philadelphia

Babes, beach, and Spring Fashion Wired 96.5 ‘s Fashion Affair at the Curtis Center@

Last Sunday I dragged myself out of bed, as the night b4 was the Union Trust opening, on the advice of my friend G-N Kang, who now that I think I bid adieu at about 2AM at the 1 Yr Anniversary party of the G Lounge, she must have been more tired than me, this is a long run on sentence how do I get rid of this underlining. Anyway it was Wired 96.5’s Fashion Affair


at the Curtis Center across from Washington Sq Park. When I walked into the familiar office building I was blown away first by the spread

catered by Cescaphe ballroom in Northern Liberties. The food was so incredibly delicious, I immediately wanted to call a dozen friends to meet me in the lobby of the Curtis Center in the shadow of the beautiful Dream Garden, which was saved a few years ago from being sold to one of the casinos in Las Vegas.

Shortly after I arrived I ran into Jack & Jill’s Boutique’s owner Anh Nguyen (r) and her friend. Today’s show would feature a lot of the clothes that can be found at [insert plug] Jack & Jill Boutique – 115 South 22nd Street, Phila T: 215.568.0202 As I continued down the hall I was completely blown away by the transformation of the hallways that lead to the elevators and to the main lobby, which is beautiful in it’s on right.

but was just WOWee WOWee when I saw it’s transformation. And thought I have to call my friends to see this, wait I have a blog, hey we need to throw more parties here it’s beautiful and many of the folks I spoke with describe it as South Beach influenced here in Philadelphia. I think Arthur’s dad was rightLightly effervescent and fruity without being cloying, Nuvo was easy to drink and refreshing. Andrea Jackson and Pam Woodland enjoy a little nip.

On with the show…this segment was very clever and the model had the wind up doll moves down pat
Although the majority of the audience were women, I do believe many men would have enjoyed the fashion show

but there was plenty of eye candy for the girls too. I love the expression of the girl with the white bagI like this picnic themed outfit. I don’t know who sells this piece as
Anh was standing right next to me and I would say, is this one of yours and this is and it be can be found at Jack & Jill’s

As can this and it’s an affordable $115; just adorable. Jack & Jill
I should have magnified this dress more; the dress is very stylish, but the clasp is really the highlight as it secures the dress but also acts as an interesting jeweled piece hanging down the back of her neck. This dress can also be found at Jack & Jill’s for only $145
The Curtis Center’s tropical decor was perfect for this spring fashion show especially this light green number
Hot, sexy GREEN

Stylish couple Bill Rotchford and Elizabeth Smith. I never look this good with my combo tshirt/jeans
Great fun shooting this fashion show, and good practice as I travel to NYC this afternoon to begin a 6 day shoot of Fashion Week. I will still be blogging Philly as I prepared ahead, but there’s a good chance I will be interjected a few celebrities & stories as I photograph them per event. Fashion Week starts on Friday, but the best parties are always the night before. Once I bagged Pam Anderson, I don’t think she’s been back to NYC since that night 2 years ago. Last year I found a Marc Jacobs party, I brought my friend Luisa, Simon and Demis and we were the only ones shooting celeb after celeb. Here’s a few fashion plates Elaine Roberts, Jeanivieve Robinson, Sherri Jacquelyn and Kelly Bulik

They had over a thousand listeners attend this free event. There was free gourmet food with gnocchi, pasta, jumbo shrimp, fruit, etc. Plus, free valet parking. Tons of demos on stage as well. For more photos and videos,T
Congrats to Melissa Bingham of Haddonfield, NJ. She won the shopping spree worth over $10,000!!!
I wish there had been more PR on this event, it was a real winner. Next year as soon as I hear about it it will go up on the PhillyChitChat calender, which by the way is at the top of your page on the right. I have added a lot of events and will populating it more in the coming weeks.
