Earlier this month Palomar Hotel launched their “Shop Like A Local Guide” at the stylish hotel in Center City.
They chose 4 stylish Philadelphian’s and each one created their lookbook (A lookbook is a collection of photographs compiled to show off a model, a photographer, a style, or stylist or a clothing line.)
It won’t come as a surprise that they chose men’s fashionista columnist Ian Michael Crum to create just the perfect lookbook connecting tourist to the hippest, happening stores in our area. (his suit is from Les Richard’s at Shops of Liberty Place at 16th & Chestnut Street.)
Many of Philly’s stylish folks came out to wish him well at the launch including Sara Kelly and Courtney Lapresi (who is appearing right now on Season Five of Fox’s MasterChec with Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot.)
Jacky Wright and Cassandra Wright (she recently launched Chosen, her apparel line.)
This cocktail Spodee seems to have blasted onto the social scene lately.
Linda Stewart ie Ian’s Glammie and Mom – Angie Hartman
Sheryl Raskin and Anthony Allen
Chandra Robbins and Matt Nadu (stylish himself, bringing the vest back in sans coat.)
Cori Moskow, Ilana Waber, guest and Randyl Case styling the crop top, which seems to be the hottest trend this season. As the summer wears on versions of this appear throughout Center City, but it has nothing to do with this hot style trend.
Evan and Lynsie Solomon and Rachel and Jason Cevera
Danielle Hankin and Alexander Hankin
Janice Waitkus, community relations at Lagos (Lagos was the hot jewelry Ian picked for the lookbook,) and Laura Burkhardt, Where Magazine. They just had their “Guest Book 2014” launch and I’ll be writing about that later this week.
Have you tried new Spring Menu, Lancaster Duck Confit, Dipping Trio, my favorite Brandywine River Texas Longhorn Burger and great wines.
