The Last 48

I love a dramatic post title, I know you were expecting some poorly dressed detective kneeling over a dead body but nope, sorry not on this blog. Really, no the last 48 have been super busy and fun. Staring with Tuesday night's Shoe Box event out in Long Island. A group of stylists, editors and bloggers were imported from the city to take in shoe porn at it's finest. With a classic and fun collection of both European and American shoe designers, Shoe Box is the real McCoy. This multi-location one stop shop for heels is most definitely on my radar. Take a look at the pics.

Yesterday, my friend and fellow blogger Glamarama hit up the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, Building Bounty-ful Bridges Mural Unveiling in Chelsea. Brothers and Hip Hop Founders, Rev Run and Russel Simmons, spoke to students from Harlem's P.S. 165 on not only staying in school, but finding a passion and seeking not only fun out of it but functionality. Building Bridges is part of a traveling art project where children in six U.S. cities collaborate on painting bridges across the country. It was very moving, as I majored in Art in college and also knowing that Art and Music are usually, the first programs that get cut in public schools. If, you have children in public school or know of any, please know that Math and Science are great but, creative classes foster children as well! Take a look at Uncle Russ below.

Finally, I visited the YSL Sample Sale. The line was long as well and the whole mandatory bag and coat check was a pain in the ass. There were bags, although they screamed Summer- raffia and white Tribute Tote and one white Downtown. Shoes were blah, mostly 3 to 4 seasons old and not one single pair of Tributes. Now don't get me wrong, there where some hits, like the belt sections buy 2 get a third free . As well, as Glamamara finding this super dope all leather pilot hat for less than $50. The sale is until tomorrow 2 pm. I may make one last dash to see of any price cuts but, don't hold your breath!
