Greyhound Bus was doing an activation and gave out these cute paper visors. It’s so cool when people wear stuff like this.

We (Mike, Moi and Rahel) stopped by Heritage and said hi to Marilyn Russell. I had so much fun being on WOGL FM with her on Friday.
I’m on again this Friday too.

I signed up for Enterprise Car Share, I need wheels to get me to the studio every week. I used to be with Zipcar, but when I went to their office on 12th Street I found they recently left and everything has to be done online. It wasn’t fun trying to get a human on the phone to explain all the levels. Bye Felicia!

It was as I said, an amazing day, with an amazing crowd.
See you tomorrow….

Philly Style Magazine’s Best of Style 2017 – The Most Fabulous Fashion

Philly Style Magazine held their annual Best of Style 2017 party last night at the Kimmel Center. The theme this year was “Around The World”.

HD1_5281 (Custom)

Over 1200 fashionable guests enjoyed food tastings from local Best of Style winners, including Little Lion (so many people wanted to know or asked me who was serving the sliders, it was them), Fine Palate (I loved how FP put all the forks in a big box ), HD1_5222 (Custom) Classic Cakes, Seasons 32 and many others while dancing the night away by CTO Entertainment, who’s been playing all the style events for over a decade.

There were so many beautiful dressed attendees, many wearing the very popular neon colors, which did my heart proud. You know I don’t want to see any black during the warmer months; although there are a few exceptions to my rule. It was hard for me to narrow it down, as usual, but I chose my favorite 24 photos. Some of these outfits are good examples of what to wear to a cocktail party.

7-28-2017 10-04-55 AM(I took a shot from a different angle at same spot, but this is the winning shot that she sent me)

As I made my way down Broad Street, I notice a fairly large crowd in front of the newly opened Palm restaurant. It’s back and better than ever. I really think the new Palm is going to be the new see, and be scene hot spot. A stand out in the crowd there was Francesca Ruscio looking stunning in House of CB.

Actress Kristen Alderson looking stunning, attended with her mom Kathy. They came up from the shore to enjoy the hottest party of the summer, as many of the other guests did as well. Check out Kristen in the latest issue of Philly Style Magazine, she fills you in on what she’s been doing since she left General Hospital.

I caught up with Joseph Diorio with Buffy Harakidas and her former co-worker Ryann Olivia, who’s now over at Cheerleaders as Marketing Director working with another stunner in fashion – Vivian CamilleBOS17
Happy birthday earlier this summer, stunner Jill Rizen here with fashion stylist to the stars Alissa Frederico. Over the past 2 years her career has just blossomed like the Flower Wall she’s posing in front of; this morning she was live on Fox 29 chatting summer style with Jenn Frederick – down the shore!!

Seriously the best dressed couple where-ever they go, the next, if not now, Philly Power Couple.
This past year they both made big moves in their careers: LR2 Custom tux wearing Brandon M. Morrison is now the COO at PRDC Properties while his lady love Stacey Kracher, wearing Saint Laurent, is partnering with Ajay Raju on projects they will announce soon.

BOS17Feeling my age I asked Alexa Scaltrito on the right, if her outfit was inspired by Bo Derek, she never heard of Bo Derek, and our conversation circled the drain with the mention of the movie “10”. We settled on Marilyn Monroe’s famous birthday dress as possibly the inspiration for her sexy frock from Fashion Nova as her friend Ashley Gallo gave us eye popping fashion all night in House of CB.  I think these outfits are worthy of The Kate Beaver – Hair of The Dog Fashion Nod 2013 .
Later in the day when I was chatting with Rahel Solomon, she had no idea who Bo Derek was either, or that Julie Andrews ever flashed in the movie. “OMG not Mary Poppins” Rahel said. Exactly that’s why she did it….

Seniors revealed their distinctive collections, showing off the students’ personality, style and artisanal skills through their beautifully crafted clothing. The evening will also include summer sportswear for men and women designed by juniors; a cool musical runway childrenswear segment by sophomores that follows the theme “Rock and Roll Denim,” with fashions inspired by the Pink Ladies from Grease to the celebrity children of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West; and the senior eveningwear finale, always a crowd-pleaser, featuring designs utilizing gold, silver and/or rose-gold metallic fabrics.

I was really impressed with the fashion of the seniors, I wish I had kept better track of who’s was what.
