Camiposa 2017 Holiday Brunch

Last Thursday, we continued our annual tradition of throwing a holiday party to thank the editors and PR industry fashionistas who have worked with us throughout the year. In collaboration with our friends at Cameo PR, we hosted a holiday brunch at Laduree, right here in SoHo.

The event took place in a private back room of the Parisian patisserie, overlooking the terrace garden. The natural light coming in from the from the large windows, and the pastel tones of the tablescape made for a beautiful scene. 

Guests chatted while sipping on freshly-squeezed juices, tea, and plenty of Insta-worthy lattes. The main event however was the set menu with two courses. Pictured above is the lox avocado toast, and a egg white scramble with spinach. 

But the best part of the meal was the macarons. So soft, sweet, and cute!

Don't Miss the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Tonight!

Just like any other girl with a knack for sparkly accessories and over dramaticized looks, we at Mariposa simply cannot wait for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This year’s annual event took place in Shanghai, China on November 17, and will air tonight!

victoria+secret+fashion+pr

Veteran angels such as Lily Aldridge and Adriana Lima returned to the runway and Alessandra Ambrosio- Brazilian model and mother of two, kicked rumors of retirement to the curb and participated in her 17th show!

Other familiar faces who made a return include Karlie Kloss, who hung up her wings a few years ago to study at NYU, as well as Angel Candice Swanepoel, back after maternity leave.

fashion+publicist+nyc

In addition to 55 models, Victoria’s Secret brought along 70 staff members; 32 makeup artists, 27 hair stylists and 11 nail artists to make sure the girls were runway-ready.

fashion+public+relations+nyc

By far the most impressive item on the runway was definitely the Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra, worn by Lais Ribero. The two-million dollar bra is composed of diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz. This year was Ribero’s 6th show with Victoria’s Secret, but it’s her first time to wear the Fantasy Bra. “It was so emotional. I couldn’t believe it when they told me. It was so beautiful.”  Said Ribero.

However the highlight of the night might not have been the angels at all, but Harry Styles’ performance… and his jazzy dance moves!

Be sure to catch the show tonight at 10/9C on CBS!

Hot Openings in New York City This Month

One of the best things about living in New York City is that there’s always new things popping up to eat, see, and experience. In the eternal words of Taylor Swift: “Like any real love, it’s ever changing.” And as a trendy young woman, it is our duty to check these places out out! However with new stuff popping up everyday, it’s hard to decide which ones are worth our precious time. So here are our two top recommendations of must-see new openings in the city.

Blue Box Cafe
If you’ve ever imagined having breakfast at Tiffany’s, your dream is about to be realized. Tiffany & Co.’s flagship Fifth Avenue store has finally opened up a café. Put on your best Holly Golightly impression and enjoy the american cuisine and tea service. With a gorgeous interior that is trademark Tiffany Blue from top to bottom, you (and your followers) are sure to be wowed by the decor, and table setting. And to top it all off, the windows offer a view of Central Park.

NYC’s Most Instagrammable Spots to Show Off Your OOTD

Whether you’re a seasoned New Yorker, or just visiting for the first time, be sure to check out our recommendations for the most insta-worthy spots in NYC; guaranteed to get you likes.
 

The High Line

The repurposing of this closed down railway into an urban park began in 2006, and shortly after became a hot New York destination. The 1.45-mile long elevated green trail on the west side of Manhattan has countless spots for cute pics. Be sure to wear comfy walking shoes! 

Screen Shot 2017-10-24 at 12.16.59 PM.png

 

DUMBO Brooklyn

Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass, aka DUMBO is a major hotspot for fashion photography. The red brick buildings make a great frame, the bridge in the background adds serious dimension to your shot. Be sure to take a look at the Manhattan skyline too while you’re there. 

Screen Shot 2017-10-24 at 12.17.24 PM.png

 

The Flat Iron Building

The unusual shape of this classic piece of NYC architecture is truly eye catching. Just north of the building there is a median where you can stand to capture the perfect angle of the building. Or you can walk along the crosswalk for cute candid shots. 

Screen Shot 2017-10-24 at 12.17.40 PM.png

 

Pietro Nolita

It’s no secret that pink is one of the hottest colors on Instagram these days. Stop by Pietro Nolita for a tasty Italian meal and make sure to get lots of pictures. The restaurant is a pink lover’s paradise, with both the outer facade and the interior being millennial pink from top to bottom.

Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Need a last minute costume? Forget about shopping for clothes, and focus on your makeup! These 3 looks will get your costume across no matter what outfit you wear with them. Most of the items you need are already in your makeup case, and you don’t need to be a pro makeup artist to pull them off. 
 

Harley Quinn
Suicide Squad was one of the hottest movies of 2016, and Harley Quinn’s look is actually much easier to pull off than you might expect. Just smoke out one eye with blue eyeshadow, and the other with red or purple, then wing your lids with your favorite liquid liner. Don’t forget to add a heart on your cheek!

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-133336.jpg

What you need: Blue and red/purple eye shadow, eyeliner, red lipstick (Click to Shop!)

 

Spooky Skull
This look might seem complicated, but you really only need a few products to achieve it. Start with a dark smoky eye with winged liner, and then use that same eyeshadow on the tip and sides of your nose bridge. Start the lips by covering them with concealer and blending it into your cheeks. Then go over and draw in your “teeth” with black liquid eyeliner. 

7b5ea300423ea748ebed8a429445aa01.jpg

What you need: Black eyeshadow, liquid eyeliner, concealer (Click to Shop!)

 

Mermaid
This may be the easiest look on our list! Start by taking a pair of fishnet tights and place it against your face. Use the tights as a stencil and dust on any color eyeshadow to create a cool scales effect. You can also add gemstones for more impact.

How to update your basic french manicure for a fun fall look.


Use a bright color

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.16.31 PM.png

Swap out white for something that pops, like this electric blue. You can also add some dots for a perfect mix of classic and modern. 

 

Play with ratios

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 2.17.12 PM.png

Instead of having white on just the tips, experiment with different ratios of white to nude. 

 

Alternate fingers

mix up french nails with normal fully-polished nails in complimentary shades.

Apple Picking Outfit Inspiration

Apple Picking Outfit Inspiration

The weather is still quite warm here in New York, but crisp fall days are just around the corner. We’ve got some great fall outfit inspiration, as well as the breakdown for a perfect apple picking outfit.

And with fall on the way, it’s almost time for everyone’s favorite fall activity, apple picking! Whether or not you think apple picking is “basic”, you will still probably end up going, so here are a few trends to rock to make sure you’re the apple of everyones’ eyes at the orchard (and on insta!)

Plaid/ Flannel Shirt

This item is a great and versatile piece that can be dressed up or down. Pair it with jeans for a cute and comfy look, or with a bright skirt for something more feminine. We recommend warm reds or oranges,  rather than cool green colors so you don’t fall into the background with the trees and grass.

Vest

When dealing with fickle fall weather, layers are key. But sometimes you don’t want to commit to a whole jacket. Vests are a perfect item to take the edge off and warm up your outfit. And they look fantastic layered over your flannel button down!

09a32057cb93074744f4560cab03ad4d.jpg

Here Reese Witherspoon is rocking two trends in one, with a plaid vest!

eab027f59dd669657a7f4813bd6afb98.jpg

Riding Boots or Rain Boots

The apple orchard could be dusty or muddy depending on the weather, so it’s best to have boots on instead of your bright white sneakers. Leather riding boots are a perfect subtle item to complete your outfit, and rubber rain boots can offer a cute pop of color.

We hope everyone has a fun and fashionable fall!

When opting for a dress that screams “extra”, it’s better to keep your accessories minimal and let the gown shine. Zoë Kravitz (in Dior Haute Couture) kept her jewelry to a minimum while still adding some sparkle with a layered necklace. Check out our pick by The 9th Muse, which has two chains and cute pendants.

August Essentials

 

 

To achieve a bronze glow in the summer, I love using Maui Babe Browning Lotion.

After spending a long day at the beach or in the sun, moisturizing with Aloe aftersun gel rejuvenates my skin

I love Lush's face masks because they leave my face feeling smooth and moisturized.

Platform sneakers and sandals are my favs because they dress up any outfit, but won't have your feet screaming in pain from wearing heels.

Espadrilles go great with any summer outfit and are super comfy!

Striped rompers and jumpsuits scream summer. The trend is everywhere! I love how they are light weight which is great for a hot summer day.

Floppy hats are one of my personal favs. They pair well with any bathing suit!

Grab a pair of these oval sunglasses! They match every outfit while complimenting every face type. 

Enjoy the last days of summer!
