Girls Night Out: StyleFixx

Last week, galpals Caroline and Heidi joined me at StyleFixx’s fabulous Girls Night Out.

Caroline, me and Heidi at Girls Night Out

Held at NYC’s Metropolitan Pavilion, the shopping party featured more than a dozen fashion, beauty and accessory vendors, along with complimentary massages and free hair treatments. Included in the $30 ticket price -- five cocktails and a swag bag with girlie products ranging from lingerie tape to anti-humidity hair spritz.

StyleFixx’s first NYC event was a big success

My favorite finds of the night were in the accessories category. I loved Mara Sinderbrand of Mara Made Jewelry’s necklaces crafted from handbag beads. Equally elegant -- Martha Almeida of BluetNewYork’s no-pain velvet headbands.

While enjoying our drinks and some tasty samples of Vermont’s Cabot cheese, Caroline, Heidi and I talked about the downsides of high-tech communication. Heidi’s boyfriend bliss had hit a brief snag over a text messaging exchange. I, meanwhile, was still smarting over being deleted as a Facebook friend -- by my cousin. Ouch.

The three of us also shared a few laughs after Heidi convinced me to say yes to a stylist offering to flat iron my hair. I nearly flew out of the chair when he said this particular flat iron would set me back a cool $150. For that price, it should come with a hairstylist.

StyleFixx’s next Girls Night Out in NYC is set for spring 2010.
