This past weekend I attended Essie Golden's First Annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party in the city. It was held at LMHQ in the Financial District. We are well into December, but it has been the mildest December in years. It was a beautiful 60 degree night, so I felt this was a great opportunity to wear a skirt sans tights. Don't get me wrong, a good pair of tights can do wonders, but I love having an option of not having to wear them. For the party, I wore my sequin camo skirt from Lane Bryant. It was an Ugly Sweater party, but I am more of a jokester so I wanted to wear something that can make people laugh. While browsing through Macy's for something, I came across this sweatshirt from American Rag Young Men's. I'm going to be honest, I consider myself one of the best gift wrappers out here, so that sweatshirt is a cosign to my mad crazy skills. A little fur is needed during the holiday season, but since it was so mild, I went with my Lane Bryant fur vest (it's on sale...so hop on that fast). I topped off my look with my Steve Madden heels, and some ruby lips.
I had a good time with my girls. I can definitively can say that at this point in my life, all I need are my friends, cocktails, and some food to make my night. While we are on the topic of food, it was delicious. There was this Miso Chicken bite that was my fav. There were some wings as well as a spicy meatball that were A1 as well. The desserts were my fav (naturally of course, because I am a sugar junkie). I tried the cake pops from Drea Cakes and they were soo good. Definitely check her out. She is the sweetest and can make one hell of a dessert. I also had a chance to try Mikey Likes It Ice Cream. I had their Hot Chocolate Ice Cream Float and it was delicious. I had this one cocktail which had pink lemonade and raspberry- so awesome! There was a pop up shop, a photo booth, and we took home a goodie bag courtesy of Ashley Stewart.
I had a great time, and can't wait to see what's in store for next year! Merry merry!!
