Two models from the show: one glammed up, one in florals, my two favorite aspects of the collection.
Escada black bag in textured leather with tassel & a green print scarf.
Green is a very popular color this season and Escada features a green pattern in several pieces including a beautiful caftan I'm lusting after. The scarf above can be worn on its own or paired with similarly patterned items in the collection like the dress below.

Escada top comes with it's own accessory: a rose gold beaded neckline that looks like a necklace

The fashionable guests sported some enviable accessories. I had a really fun conversation with WPIX anchor Frances Rivera about our Hermes Birkin bags. I love talking about accessories and was thrilled to find a kindred spirit.

As for my attire, I wore the one Escada jacket that I have had for a decade, and that is still in great condition. It's a blue/multi tweed so I accessorized with blue shoes, a blue necklace and my navy Birkin. Everyone kept asking about my necklace and who designed it. It was from Sequin, one of my favorite costume jewelry designers.

At the end of the event we were each given a very nice accessory as a party favor: a leather business card holder. Very stylish and extremely useful. It's tucked inside my wallet with my business cards right now.
