B|W|R's Kick Off Your Heels and Get Glam Fashion Week lounge at the Empire Hotel was one of my favorites to attend during Fashion Week Spring 2013. Some celebrity and VIP guests included Megan Hilty ("Smash"), Natasha Bedingfield, Mercedes Masohn ("666 Park Avenue"), Christian Siriano, Kaylee DeFer ("Gossip Girl") and AnnaSophia Robb ("The Carrie Diaries").
Foot Petals was a lifesaver to my feet by providing me with Tip Toes for my heels, and also had other sole-lutions on-hand. I then indulged in the Stella & Dot charm bar and previewed their holiday collection. In addition to jewelry, I was excited to see Stella & Dot scarves, candles, wallets and iPhone cases. bareMinerals provided makeup touchups featuring their Ready SPF 20 Foundation. I was introduced to Boomphones, super-comfy headphones which can be transformed into a boombox. I also got to learn more about Sanuk footwear and preview the Spring 2013 collection. I was amazed at the flip flops made out of real yoga mats, especially the wedge version.
