10 Things We Love 4/18/2011

1 The Name Game With so many new arrivals last week, we needed help coming up with all the names! So we challenged our facebook fans to play the Name Game and name our dresses in exchange for a free rental and feature on our blog. If you haven't already, play the name game here!     2 Runway Rep Weekend This weekend we had our Runway Reps visit us in NYC! Christian Siriano and reps from Badgley Mischka and Fragments helped us show our campus reps a great time at RTR headquarters in exchange for all the hard work our reps put in on behalf of RTR on campuses across the country. Check out all the details here!       3 Swarovski Elements Of course Becky, our jewelry buyer, found wall paper that is perfect for her love of glitz. Swarovski Elements, a line of wall paper created by the masters of all that glitters, has us wanting to redecorate now. Which one do you love? .  4 Mini Shopaholic Our favorite author, Sophie Kinsella's new book, Mini Shopaholic, is out this week in paper back and we can't wait to get our hands on it! Pre-order it here before it's sold out! 5 Cure Cocktail Bar in New Orleans Abby enjoyed the rose and dates stuffed with goat cheese wrapped with bacon at this cocktail bar when she headed back home to New Orleans.   6 Pamela Love x Opening Ceremony Opening Ceremony and Pamela Love have joined forces for a line that is worth owning... every single piece. Check it out here.     7 Gramercy Park Hotel Rooftop Neil headed to the Gramercy Park Hotel Rooftop this weekend and had cinnamon infused tequila that was made in-house mixed with blood orange juice with brunch... don't be surprised if he's spotted there again next weekend.     8 11-B Express AJ loves this low key restaurant and lounge in the East Village. If she would've been checking in, she would be the mayor by now. Check it out here.    9 Raines Law Room The design team had drinks at Raines Law Room after work on Friday and they came in recruiting the rest of the office to join them there again for next time. From the decor to the drinks, they've become huge fans.     10 Vannen Watches This men's watch company knows what it takes to make watches you really can't part with. Each watch is designed by artists- Blaine Fontana, Attaboy, Brian Ewing, etc.-  and is a limited edition timepiece. There's no harm in stacking, so wear as many as you like.        Read More
