fashion week block party

BY Laurie in General

It's fashion week in NY, and that means tons of parties and shows. Did your Marc Jacobs invitation get lost in the mail? Yeah, mine too, but never fret, there are plenty of fun things to do and see, even if you are not attending any shows. One such event is a Block Party hosted by the stores on Centre Market Place, (that weird little street just west of Little Italy- googs it). Built by Wendy , No. 6  (amazing vintage!) Pipino Salon, and others are throwing a bash on Thursday night. Read More

Come on, the young-ins like to knit as well, people! And... Read More

You Go, Girl!

Now, I don't follow tennis at all, much less keep track of player standings, but when the 70th-ranked player beats the 13th-ranked one (Nadia Petrova), even I take notice and want to see what all the fuss is about. So who is this new star that's the talk of the US Open? Melanie Oudin, 17, of Marietta, Georgia! Not only has she beat Petrova, but Russian stars Elena Dementieva (ranked no. 4) and Maria Sharapova (ranked no. 29) as well. Oudin's win over Petrova yesterday makes her the youngest American to make the quarterfinals since Serena Williams in 1999, which is quite the title to hold. Read More
