While I was out of town at my college reunion, Jenn Morales attended a rather swanky launch of the new Opening Ceremony collection with co-owner and co-designer Carol Lim.
With champagne flowing and light bites from cute waiters being passed and a DJplaying great music, I perused the new collection from Opening Ceremony with our contest winner, Maia Alejandro, courtesy of American Express. I found myself drooling over cases of jewelry, particularly a gorgeous assortment of items from Pamela Love. In my opinion, Opening Ceremony does accessories the best.
The new collection is absolutely gorgeous, feminine with the incredible edge for which OC is known. After reviewing the gorgeous items, we made our way to the basement level, where I tried on a pair of killer Alexander Wang Mackenzie Polished Booties
(captured in the photo above.) They’re stunning and I will dream of them often.
I then made my way to the third and top floor, which happens to be one of Kristin’s favorite place on Earth (ed. note: I would consider the sales people on the top floor of Opening Ceremony personal friends at this point, I’m there so often. I have to add them to my holiday gift list.) The floor is stocked with incredible edgy designer favorites and an entire wall of Proenza Schouler bags and accessories. I imagined myself walking around with a Proenza Schouler PS 1. Sigh. I can see why Kristin loves this store so much. The entire store is so cool, filled with multiple levels stocked with incredible things to explore and find. It feels like a modern fashion museum, so well curated.
This is where you go for statement/conversation pieces that will have everyone asking you where did you get that. Or throwing jealous looks your way.
