Last week, on Wednesday, I attended KMR Communication’s Girls Night Out at Bruno Jamais Restaurant. If you are a regular reading of the Advice Sisters Web Site, you know that we gave away a $200.00 gift certificate to this chic, supper club on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, as well as a large gift basket from The Body Perfect, also participating in the Girls Night Out, as part of our Celebrate Spring Contest. Don’t forget to enter our latest contest: The Devil (and YOU) Wear Prada at: http://www.advicesisters.net/devil1.html now through the end of the year.
Back to last Wednesday’s event: guest were greeted at the door of this shopping extravaganza with a glass of champagne (not a bad way to end the day, or start your shopping experience). There were dozens of vendors with tables featuring everything from color cosmetics, to skincare, fashion retail stores, fragrance, fitness products, hair care products and lots more. The public was invited to attend, but the media was out in full force as well.
Bruno Jamais is a really pretty venue, with lots of glass mirrors, graceful arches between the rooms, and a nice, warm, elegant feel. As waiters brought around trays of mini chicken legs, dates filled with pate, and other delights, I made my way past the great, Bruno Jamais bar, through the rooms (three of them), looking at all sort of nifty products I didn’t know about (and I hope to review some of them in the not-too-distant-future in the Advice Sisters What Works Beauty, Cosmetics & Fashion Review Column http://www.advicesisters.net/whatworkscol3.html and talking to vendors about what makes them so passionate about their products.
Aside from me, I’m guessing that the vendors, as well as others who attended, thought this was a wildely successful event. Some, although not all of the vendors at the event were:
Fopps Clothing, sanefit, the body perfect, Rodeo Drive Resale (from whom I bought a gorgeous and definitely well priced but still past my budget, limited edition Coach bag —never drink and buy!), Robert Craig, the Fitness Challenge, TummyTuck Jeans, Smooth Synergy, Piro Cosmetics, Artemis Woman (watch for our review of this crystals-inspired line in our November What Works column), Chinese Laundry, Moore Unique, Bijoux Swimwear, Model in a Bottle, and Artisan Parfumeur…just to name a few.
Apparently, there was also a special appearance of the talented singerm Samantha Cole, but after about 1 1/2 hours on my feet in a very enthusiastic crowd, I’d had enough and reluctantly left, clutching a great clear tote bag with yellow handles, filled with the Morning Glory (gentle anti-aging) line from the Body Perfect. I headed for home, just as the heavens opened up and rained on me and my new, coach bag (and of course, I didn’t have an umbrella).
I’m still having trouble posting photos,and for some reason I couldn’t post these photos right into my blog (got it, then lost it) but here’s one of Bruno Jamais: http://www.advicesisters.net/advicesistersblog/uploaded_images/brunojamaisdr2-722149.jpg and here is a photo of the lovely and talented, Katherine Rothman, CEO of KMR Communications with Singer Samantha Cole at Bruno Jamais: http://www.advicesisters.net/kathyandsamantha.jpg a
A fun night, and a great event!
