Sara: I officially can barely remember what day it is!
Alyssa: It’s Wednesday, remember (just keep swimming).
Sara: Swimming! That sounds fun actually. Emily and I would have been down to swim when we stopped by Le Bain tonight.
Emily: Yup that would’ve made my night.
Alyssa: It probably would have made everyone’s night who was there, too. Unless you splashed them, of course. Chlorine ruins couture.
Emily: Probably would’ve ruined my Topshop as well.
Alyssa: So glad we found a few minutes to get together tonight at the 1 of 100 Maserati event with Zegna. That much needed glass of champagne was my first of the week. Horrors! But also that car is super chic. And if you buy one, the money goes to restoring a fountain in Italy. It is basically like charity, so who wants to buy (me) a Mas for a cause?
Sara: Mmm, petite foods!
Alyssa: (Followed by normal sized foods at Gitane.)
Sara: Mmm, avocado toast. My doorman is so cute. He always asks me if I’m surviving and then tells me how many days I have left.
Alyssa: How many is it?
Sara: So today I saw BRITNEY guys. Definitely my top moment of the day. OTHER than dinner with you ladies which was the first time I’ve been social in days and so wonderful.
Emily: And you got a picture with Anna Dello Russo!
Sara: Guys, I have very few filters, but I will not share that terrifying picture taken in the elevator of The Standard.
Alyssa: Hold up. No offense to ADR, she’s cool and all, but CAN WE TALK ABOUT BRITNEY JEAN.
Sara: Okay so Britney’s line is HOT.
Alyssa: She’s doing lingerie, right?
Sara: Yeah, it was actually really funny, because during the presentation, one model would come out in a straight up thong and bra but then the next would be wearing conservative pajamas. What a contrast. And then, at the end, we were graced with about 30 seconds of Britney looking really, really good in a red jumpsuit who thanked us for coming. I didn’t get to speak with her or selfie (which would have completed my life) but I was in the front row! I’m not sure where the lingerie is sold, but I would definitely buy it. In fact, I’m gonna check out the website right now.
OMG–there’s a video.
Every style has a video…….one is called anemone…..okay wait they don’t all have videos but whaaaat.
New favorite website. It seems it will mostly be e-commerce–the most brick and mortar stores are in Belgium and Germany… strange. The girls had roses in their hair, it was very pretty. I weirdly feel like I need to order something to support Britney.
Emily: Speaking of pretty hairstyles, I was into the models’ hair at Cynthia Rowley. They had these gold/silver foil things in that looked kind of mermaid-y.
Sara: Emily is super into mermaids 🙂
Emily: Hope to one day attend classes here.
Sara: I would gladly join.
Alyssa: I’m more like Ariel when she’s on dry land and hanging out with Prince Eric.
Sara: So we all went to Karolyn Pho before our champagne+dinner excursion…
but before that I went to Diesel Black Gold in the morning at the 33rd street Post Office. I always wanted to see a show there. I remember last year dropping my boss off in front for the Rag & Bone show and thinking kinda: “wow.” So that was cool! I saw across the room from Giovanna Battaglia and ADR and after the show I really got what this uber driver meant when he said THIS:
Now my @uber driver complaining abt street style photographers clogging traffic: “Have they never seen shoes before? It’s so silly.”

Emily: Just Cynthia Rowley for me–lots of bright colors, florals, and interesting prints. I was into it.
Sara: I would like to give a quick shoutout to one of the nicest people in fashion: Peter Arnold has been the president of Cynthia Rowley for a bunch of years. He just always puts me in a great mood. I ZIPPED from Britney to Cynthia because a. I always love her collections–they’re whimsical, really and b. Peter is delightful. He also wears the coolest glasses.
Emily: Yeah whimsical perfectly described it. One outfit looked like something out of I Dream of Jeannie while the activewear clothes actually looked pretty sleek and modern.
Sara: Can we speak for a second about how, this season, the clothes either LOOK like activewear or ARE activewear? Cynthia debuted activewear?
Emily: It was pretty cute. I could maybe get excited about exercising with some of those outfits.
Alyssa: As good of a reason to get a new outfit as any.
