April 21st: With spring beginning to blossom, we headed to our first rooftop event of the season!  New York & Company presented their Summer picks at the Hotel on Rivington’s triplex penthouse.  When we first visited NY&Co, we were already impressed by their elegant showroom; this time, they went even further!  Maybe it’s something about the warmer spring air that makes people want to throw a fabulous event.

Walking into the first floor of the penthouse, the DJ was spinning I was greeted by tall,  leggy models wearing outfits from the Summer collection.  NY&C has all the summer fashion needs, from cute, casual looks and beachy-worthy outfits to warm-weather suiting options.  I must be the only person maxed out on maxi dresses, but this may have changed my mind!

Carson Kressley was there for his “NY Style Picks” where he features his favorites from the collection, along with Richie Rich, Alexa Susser, Denise Vasi and Marielle Gelber, NY&C’s PR director.  Everyone enjoyed themselves on the outside rooftop with drinks, though no one took a dip in the hot tub.  Bummer!  We’ll wait until the next event.

We left with our own taste of NY&C with colorful bangle bracelets, a tie dye scarf, a cute crystal button cardigan, and a light-weight travel make-up kit, all packed into a large summer tote.  To take a look at Carson’s other great picks, click here.
