Tawny Ong and her fabulous cupcakes
On March 4th, I attended the "Bag Some Art" event at the PT Experiment Gallery, hosted by Bagtrends.com. The event introduced LaLucca's Summer 2010 handbag collection, by husband and wife design team Aleksandar Kirilov and Laura Pimental. What really caught my eye were the special edition LaLucca Art Bags in canvas with leather. No two wearable art pieces are alike, as the clutches are hand painted in vibrant colors.
After I was done looking at the bags, I made my way to sample Tawny Ong's mini cupcakes, which were truly fashionably petite! The red velvet and hummingbird cupcakes (made with bananas, pineapples and pecans) were addictive and delectable, and I was sold on the cream cheese icing. The double fudge espresso brownies were so sinful and rich! VOGA Italia wine was provided to go with the cupcakes.
Upon leaving, guests received a Bagtrends.com gift bag including a Pursendipity Ring, Maria Bonitas Salon & Spa gift certificate, Tip Toes foot petals, Fashion Forum fashion tape and a brown cotton jersey scarf from Derek Loves Shopping.
