I know I have been incognito….I have been exhausted on top of my job hunting but I decided to do some research on the designer I partied with on my last night in NY for NYFW. The designers name is Kati Stern and her clothing line is called Venexiana. I had never heard of her, but boy was that party amazing. A violinist got on the table and performed to a song….like it was like I was dreaming, like who does that. All I can say is only in NY. Well anyway we partied on top of the table half of the night because everyone was on the table…LOL. This was a night of party hoping and lastly ended at a spot where I randomly ran into a fellow Aggie, HOW CRAZY. You can’t escape those Aggies.
Here is a link to Kati Stern’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection: http://formzine.com
Here are some snapshots from the night….

Well more like let’s cover the cupcakes in frosting. I was able to go to the official opening of Frosting a Cupcakery and the launch of the couples book called The Icing on the Cake in Friendship Heights. This is walking distance from Friendship Heights train station. I got a chance to try spice cupcake, smore cupcake, and the mini breakfast cupcakes which were one of my favorites. There prices are lower compared to other local cupcake shops which is great! I will have to stop by and pick up some cupcakes one day soon!

Anyone up for wrestling?
