{ Life } Glamorama

One of the great benefits of working where I do is the yearly Glamorama fashion show and party put on by Macy’s. The non-profit I work with is the lucky beneficiary for this event, and I always look forward to the show.

It’s fashion! It’s music! It’s a wild and crazy post-party!

I’m no fashionista, but I do enjoy seeing the crazy new fashions. Some of the premiers for fall lines came from Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Papi, Tracy Reese and more. There is always a men’s underwear line that gets the ladies hooting. One year there was even men’s swimsuits and an onstage waterfall… Can you imagine the reaction to glistening men in only their little swimsuits? It was all over the news the next day!

There is always music to go along with the show. A mini concert is put on by a talent which acts as a break-up of the fashion show and a show closer. We’ve seen Eric Hutchinson and Macy Gray… We saw Cyndi Lauper and M.C. Hammer… This year was pretty great, though. The first act was Far East Movement, and our show headliner…

Bruno Mars! He’s adorable, sings like an angel, and has amazing fashion sense. A fabulous pick for the theme “Artrageous” this year!

Afterwards, there is a rooftop party at Macy’s in downtown. This party is epic. We were surrounded by four amazing catered food stations (Breakfast, panini’s, Americana, and sushi!) an crème brule station, and a candy buffet by See’s Candy. How can you go wrong?

The Patron photo booth is always a favorite spot!

This year, I continued onw yearly tradition: losing an earring. Oh well! Thank goodness they were only $5.00 from Target!

Carl and I had a great time getting out and having a memorable date night at Glamorama. Good people, great food, fun times... and all for an amazing cause!

Whats sorts of crazy date nights have you had leading up to your wedding day?
