Launched! MNG by Mango Party

There was a party the other night, and I was lucky enough to have Wendy Brandes of Wendy Brandes Jewelry as my date. So, of course I had a fabulous time, thanks Wendy!

Gorgeous Wendy on the left in Balenciaga, and me on the right in H&M's skinniest pants ever, Zara sweater, and 15 year old (?) Demeulemeester jacket. Sigh, I'm all smushy-faced, I've totally lost my posing mojo. And Intern Craig told me to wear my other 15 yo. Demeulemeester jacket. Next time I'm listening to him. This is my longest photo caption EVER.

While there, we ran into Midtown Girl and Yuli Ziv.
I love this photo.
See, it was a party! And although there were celebrities also posing in front of the JCPenney MNG by Mango sign that night, who wants to see celebrities when you can have these gorgeous bloggers?

There was also a fashion show and performance by Janelle Monae. I was happy to see clothes on the runway that I've tried on in store, so refreshing. And I still love this green dress:
Great sweater pairing, I needed that in the dressing room.
I'd love to buy this shiny dress:

 Click for details, it's lovely! And neutral, so you have to buy it!

I'm now obsessed with these pants. Going to JCPenney Manhattan Mall to see if they are in store.

Official JCPenney photo below, adorable outfit but my inner critic is saying I'm too old for knee socks and shorts and I'm agreeing until I get my mid-age Madonna body and can say screw you, inner critic.

Janelle Monae performance was a highlight (photo courtesy of JCPenney).


So if I find those black pants in the Manhattan Mall store you'll be hearing from me and MNG by Mango at JCPenney again soon. And ok, just to appease Intern Craig, below are some photos of attending celebrities and a video, all from JCPenney.

JCPenney Manhattan Mall, 33rd & 6th Avenue, lower levels 1&2

I am going to say "screw you" to your inner critic right now. Why wait?

I'm waiting for my Madonna body! Seriously, I need some regular gym time. Now that Arm Baby is one I have no more excuses :(

I soooooo wish I had been there. And, FH, your inner critic needs to be evicted. You can whatever the heck you want. AND OMG, you look AMAZING in those skinny jeans. Very chic!
