Housing Works Gala Opening

Last week, Housing Works, an organization that combats AIDS and homelessness primarily through initiatives funded by their wonderful upscale thrift shops in New York, hosted a gala opening of their newest store in Hell’s Kitchen. Typically, I leave the nightlife reporting to others but for fashion and style this was, pardon the pun, one-stop-shopping.

Event host, lifestyle guru Derek Warburton of DerekLovesShopping.com helped bring in a number of notables. Attendees included Ramona Singer, Alex McCord and husband Simon Vanderkamp of The Real Housewives of New York. There was a plethora of clothing designers, including Marisol Deluna, Loris Diran, Philip Estrada, Kristine Elezaj, Jack Mackenroth, Malan Breton, Kevin Christiana, Allison Parris, Anthony Keegan, John Bartlett, Project Runway’s Epperson Rod and hat designer to the stars, Rod Keenan. Also included was Bravo’s host, Andy Cohen and singer Kristine Elezaj.

With all these talents in one place, how could there not be some interesting styles? Given limitations of space, more images are posted on Facebook, but here are some of my favorites…

I love Jessica Caroll's look. Overall, I think it is a lovely combination; I love the circles on the dress and the necklace that repeats the circles. The black shawl is delicate and compliments this dress well. I even like the shoes with this.
