In between the J. Crew and Helmut Lang sample sales today, I stopped over at the Elizabeth Arden pop up at Madison Square Park - Pedestrian Plaza (Broadway & East 23rd Street) and indulged in a hand massage in the Recharge Room. Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo glammed up guests with customized makeovers, followed by professionally styled pictures taken by Nigel Barker between 1-3pm. I didn't have time for the makeover, but I was sure to say hi to Nigel and have him take my photo. He's such an amazing photographer, I couldn't pass up the photo opportunity - makeup or no makeup!
The Elizabeth Arden Recharge Machine also dispensed free pods filled with signature Baked by Melissa red velvet cupcakes with chances to win "red ticket" items including Red Door Spa gift certificates, Elizabeth Arden products and red-bottomed Christian Louboutin heels. The pop up was open for this weekend only, on December 1st and 2nd.
