7 days in vegas

September 29, 2014

so its already the end of september and i haven't posted for a while, im sorry!
i was in vegas for 7 days last week. yes you read that right, 7 days. 
i had an event there that i have been planning for a couple of months now,
i can't even tell you how good it feels to have it all over with! it made
wedding planning seem like a piece of cake - never thought i'd say that.
i can't share too much, but here are a few snapshots…
we stayed at the cosmopolitan, of course. 
i stayed at a couple of different hotels while planning the event
 and this one was my favorite. 
clean, pretty and i'm obsessed with the wallpaper in the rooms!
(and it is one of the only hotels in vegas that doesn't reek of smoke when you walk in!)

vesper bar in the cosmopolitan.

definitely my favorite dinner spot in vegas, nobu at caesars palace.
everything is absolutely tdf, but the black cod is my favorite!

pretending to be in venice...

drinks at mesa grill.

dinner at tao.

and the pretty entrance to the nightclub. 

 first event at stk.

we had customized menus, candy bars, 
drinks and glasses that you could take home, obvi!

i sat on the edge of my chair the whole show,
 i don't know how these people do it!

i had customized pretzels made from fatty sundays. 
not only are they the cutest pretzels you've ever seen, 
but they are made in brooklyn (by two talented sisters) and are the
 best chocolate & sprinkle covered pretzels i've ever had.

we couldn't have a party without a step and repeat and showgirls...

the hotel sent up some champagne and customized chocolates to my room one night.
 i would say they were delicious, but they were way too adorable to eat! 

and i of course made time to get a massage at the sahra spa...

it was amazing, fun and exhausting, all at the same time. 
but you know how it goes, #wheninvegas…

i can find any excuse for a party

especially when there is rose and momofuku cake truffles involved!

the glasses are sold out, but you can find similar here,
and the tray is design darling.


la esquina

September 15, 2014

barrio latino - so good!

la esquina is an oldie but goodie, for sure. 
you could easily mistake this place for, well, the corner deli. 
but if you walk inside, go down the stairs and through the kitchen, you will find
the most awesome, little, authentic, mexican hangout.
the atmosphere is cool, their drinks are amaze and they have the best queso.
if you go early you could walk in, but during peek hours you will definitely need a resy
or the man at the door will not walky-talky you in ;)

DVF Spring 2015 Fashion Show

September 8, 2014

hello cocktails on mulberry loves! i hope you don't mind me intruding.... my sister alexa let me crash her blog to share one of the best nights of my life with you! 

real fast three things to know about me: I'm a buyer for one of the most inspiring fashion designers, well ever--Diane von Furstenberg. she is truly an incredible woman. I'm mildly obsessed with taylor swift and i think eyebrows are everything. oh yeah and my name is caroline.

anyway  in case you didn't already know it's fashion week in nyc! this also means that its my favorite time of year! i heart it more than christmas. seriously though it makes my heart melt like a popsicle on the fourth of july, and last night was our spring 15 collection fashion show--it was to die for. im in love.

um kendal jenner walked in the show tonight.

candice swanepoel walked in our show.
my life is now complete.

look ten is my favorite.
simple toile garden light pink mikado coat
strapless pleated black and white gingham mikado dress
