I mentioned last week that I was invited by Lucky Magazine to help celebrate with Express as they attempted to break a Guinness Book of World Record for the most people to walk down a runway. This past Saturday, 103 degree heat and all, anyone brave enough to get in front of the curious crowd could turn Times Square into their runway, compliments of Express. By 3PM, the previous record, held by Galeries Lafayette, was trumped two fold, with Express now holding the title at 1,243 walks!

The day culminated with Lucky so graciously hosting myself and seven other lovely bloggers at the Muse Hotel for some pre-show snacks, gabbing, and makeup by Pre-Dame. They came prepared with a toolbox of application tricks for fabulous false eyelashes and bottles of champagne, my favorite kind of party! Decked in garb kindly gifted by our hosts, our little crew braced the heat to take front row, you know, just right next to one of my very favorite designers, Catherine Malandrino.

I think many of us grew up with Express as the go-to spot for black pants (remember those days?) but after seeing so many fun pieces walk down the runway, I think it’s safe to say I’ll be hitting them up for fun party attire in the near future. (Hello satin pants with ankle ties!)

Minus the fact that I was sans hair tie and sweating, the evening was a true blast due in large part to Lucy Magazine and Express being such fabulous hosts and bringing together a great group of girls!
