Foster Grant threw their 85th birthday bash at the Gansevoort Pake Avenue last week and it was a blast! I was there to interview Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham for Joonbug. (You can check out the piece here.)
Kat is the new face of the “Who’s That Behind Those Foster Grants?” campaign. She was such a sweetheart, and I loved swapping style tips with her over Foster Grant’s newest collection. From aviators to mega glam shades, there is something for everyone at Foster Grant! Kat and I agreed that one of the coolest things about the brand is that their amazing variety! At such an accessible price point, they are accessible to everyone as well!Kat dished that she is inspired by the 90’s, and loves dressing with a vintage edge. I loved that, as you guys know that I am a huge fan of vintage shopping! The Foster Grant line has pieces that felt vintage, with cat-eye and thick frames, as well as sunnies that were a bit more modern.
Some of my fave bloggers were in attendance, particularly Jessie of Style and Pepper and Arielle of Something Navy. We all posed for photos and sipped champagne to celebrate the occasion. Jessie and Arielle are such dolls! I can’t explain to you guys how kind and supportive bloggers are within the community. If you ever see your favorite blogger on the street or at an event, don’t be too shy to say “Hi!” We love talking to girls who love fashion as much as we do!
All in all, the Foster Grant party was full of the New York glamor that makes me love working in this city more and more every day! A fancy pair of sunglasses is the perfect accessory to emphasize mysterious city style! I’ll be sure to showcase my favorite Foster Grant glasses soon on the blog…but in the meantime, here are some party photos!
