Out And About: The Art Of Rube Goldberg, Cremieux Flagship Store Opening, PULSE Art Fair And More…

I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately and I apologize for that. In my defense, it’s been a crazy couple of months… I found myself looking for a new job, taking any work available to pay the rent (we’ve all been there) and going out of course – Just because I was jobless and broke didn’t mean I was going to sit at home and cry, right?

Anyhow, I’m finally getting back on my feet and things are falling into place. In fact, I’m so excited about a few amazing upcoming projects I’m working on that I can’t wait to share with you but first, let me take a selfie!!!

On April 10, I attended an evening celebrating the art of Rube Goldberg at the Paul Stuart store on Madison Ave. Rube Goldberg was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, sculptor and author. Best known for his “inventions” that take a simple task and makes it extraordinarily complicated.

The store had Rube Goldberg themed-window displays for the entire month of April and Rube’s granddaughter and author of The Art of Rube; Jennifer George was there to sign some books. Guests and I enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails courtesy of Slovenia Vodka.

On April 23, The Trevor Project held a kickoff party for its June 16 TrevorLIVE event. Presented by Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, it took place at The Eventi, A Kimpton Hotel.

I was happy to attend given that what The Trevor Project does for the LGBT youth is remarkable.

On April 29, I headed over to the BoConcept store in Chelsea to the Fusion Collection Launch Event. I’ve always like BoConcept furniture. I love their aesthetic and they have great signature pieces that make a fantastic addition to any room.

Cremieux was founded in 1976 by Daniel Cremieux. Classic and contemporary, Cremieux offers an impeccable style with superior fabrics. A passion for detail and quality. A casual and chic elegance characterized by the Ivy League.

A beautiful spring evening where guests and I enjoyed champagne & small bites. Among the attendees were Olivia Palermo and boyfriend Johannes Huebl, Stephane Cremieux, Herve Bernand and Cremieux Designer Pinky Gajjar.

I’m obsessed with the stars shorts, the colorful plaid shirts (signature of the brand) and the accessories like ties and bowties.

Last Wednesday I found myself in Chelsea, this time for a shopping event at Parke & Ronen benefiting GLAAD. Guests enjoyed 20% off their entire purchase in store and refreshments courtesy of ZICO coconut water, Peroni beer and Spiked Seltzer.

I even met Parke Lutter Co-Owner and Creative Director of Parke & Ronen. How cool is that? I’m currently working on a project with the brand to show you how to get the perfect summer look.

Finally, last weekend I was invited to the VIP Brunch for PULSE Art Fair, where I had the chance to meet Pulse Director Helen Tommer.

PULSE Art Fair With a background in graphic design, I feel very connected with art. My favorite things at the fair, besides the mimosas, Perrier water and muffins were the vibrant portraits of Hassan Hajjaj (GUSFORD, L.A.) the hairy chest of Sean Fader aka the #wishingpelt (you know me, I’ll take a furry guy anytime of the day), Jay Kaplan humorous buttons and John Arsenault provocative portraits (Keeler & Co)
