For once, this wasn't what I was muttering to myself while bulldozering my way through a crowded bar with a full-to-the-brim G&T in each hand.
I did, however, manage to down a few flutes and globes this past Saturday evening in SoHo at 75 Spring Street for UK Breast Cancer research charity Too Many Women's Cocktails and Shopping Event.
Masterminded by TMW Ambassadors Georgie Downie and Kate Becker, along with friends Kaley, Kenner, and Karoline Bolt, the intimate affair boasted donated designer goods from the likes of Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Tibi, Steven Alan, Jean Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Matthew Williamson, and Zac Posen. DVF herself even donated a selection from her A/W 2010 collection, including a beautiful reversible gilt coat pictured below.
Friend and former VICE comrade Kaley Bolt gave us the grand tour of the event space, the New York office of cutting-edge international advertising agency Smoke and Mirrors. Low lights, a superb selection of womenswear (the XL Loro Piana wool pullover in the photo below was one of the last remnants of the men's rack by the time I arrived), and an overall generous spirit made for a fantastic evening.
And what a successful evening it was as well - when all was said and done, Kaley & co. managed to raise nearly $10,000 for Breast Cancer research. Needless to say, after doing our part, I felt ever so slightly better about the next morning's extra sybaritic brunchtime shenanigans...and those of the night that preceeded them.
