Veuve Polo Classic: New York

Vueve Clicquot Champagne and Polo are already a certified classic with scenes from Pretty Woman dancing through my head at the mere mention. With the combo already being a tempting combination for me a text from one of my fav road trip divas about the Veuve Polo Classic and before I knew it I was booked to New Jersey with ticket to this uber posh event.

With gorgeous city views, great vibes and flowing Veuve Chicquot champagne this event made sure to get a special marks on my calendar as it not only met but exceeded my already high expectations. Nothing beats the opportunity to step outside the regularly scheduled program of your life, get all dolled up and do something both different and absolutely fabulous.  As soon as I hopped off the shuttle and headed towards the location I felt the vibrations of fun and fancy from walking in the door.  Set in Liberty State Park you have a jaw dropping view of the impressive Manhattan skyline.  My immediate first move…head straight for the champs!! Even that very easy decision though was difficult just because of the sheer beauty of the venue and the people that inhabited it.  With special Veuve photo opts sprinkled throughout the park it is hard to stay focused in heading in one direction.  Despite the struggle I made it and quickly decided on getting a bottle of Veuve, which came with a classic Veuve carrying case, to get the show on the road.  With the champagne moving your feet and probably your mouth too, the feeling of getting all dressed up with your friends as you feeling on top of the world and ready to slay only to realize you weren’t the only one who caught the vibes.  Chic dresses and distinguished gentlemen abounded offer a sea of eye candy with the champs easily opening the doors of conversation.

So of course on top of all the eye spy fun there is the Polo Match. Admittedly I was a little late for some of the fun and when we finally made it over to the field we found a sea of blankets and picnic baskets checking out the action of the game.  While on my first go round I opted for general tickets if floor seating is not up your alley you can also upgrade to VIP for more formal seating (and of course easier access to the champagne).  To top off a full day of day drinking the fun climaxed as Alicia Keys performed to cap off what was a great day enjoying some beautiful weather with even more fabulous friends.

Next up is the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic Los Angeles on October 14th!  Mix in the Classic Fun with the easy flow and beautiful scenery of Southern California and you are sure to have a fabulous combination on your hands.

Fun and fashion were oozing from the doors of 51 Fifteen at last night’s Celebrate Primavera Event at Saks Fifth.

Saks Fifth Avenue showcased some of the season’s hottest trends with some bold spring and summer prints that are sure to make a statement.  Prints always allow you the opportunity to balance the boldness and colors of a print with a more demure element or take it up a notch to make sure you are the center of attention in a bold and fun print.  These hot styles were matched only by the heat brought by Cadillac in showcasing their new line.   The sleekness and downright sexy design of the Cadillac line truly gave the fashion a run for its money.Bartender at 51 Fifteen

The event also provided the perfect footing for a spotlight on a wonderful upcoming event, the Houston Symphony’s Centennial Ball After Party.  The Ball’s After Party is a must in your social calendar as you will have the unique chance to mix and mingle after the Centennial Ball at the one and only Jones Hall.  The amazing night is set to begin with The Richard Brown Band and take you through the rest of the night with bites by Jackson and Co. and flowing cocktails.  When you mix in DJ Kalkutta, bringing a New York state of mind to Houston, you are in for an awesome evening.

If you did not get a chance to enjoy the fun of the party last night, you still have a chance to check out some of the beauty in the Primavera Flowers exhibit in the Galleria right now.  Saks Primavera EventThe exhibit brings the best of spring to the Galleria with breathtaking floral displays throughout the mall.  To add even more wonder to the floral designs and garden arrangements within Galleria, the Museum of Natural Science’s Cockrell Butterfly Center has created a living butterfly garden of more than 100 butterflies in The Galleria corridors. This is the last weekend to get and appreciate a true celebration of flowers, colors, and beauty of spring at the Primavera at the Galleria.
