Last week, I was lucky enough to score a last minute ticket to The Pink Agenda Annual Spring Gala. It's a not-for-profit organization committed to raising money for breast cancer care and research and awareness of the disease among young professionals. Many of you probably saw my tweets about scrambling to find the perfect outfit. It felt very appropriate to wear pink, but I only own one cocktail dress with pink in it. (Isn't that shocking? I was sort of surprised myself.) However, the dress is from last summer, and I've lost about 15 pounds since I last wore it. With about 24 hours to spare, I ran to the tailor a few doors down and begged her to take in my dress by the following evening. The dress got done and I felt pretty in pink!
Here I am with dear pal Essential Luxuries! My dress is J. Crew; my shoes and clutch are kate spade.
The event was held at The Angel Orensanz Foundation in the Lower East Side - such a sexy venue. Hors D'oeuvres were catered by Danny Meyer - everything was tiny and delicious. Fried mac and cheese bites, itty bitty crabcakes, and sliders. Pink champagne flowed like water. It was a swanky soiree and I was thrilled to be there. I'm thinking of becoming more involved with this committee. It's such a great cause and does work I really believe in.
