Spring 2011 050

Jason Wu was in town last week for a series of events sponsored by Nordstrom, Vanity Fair and the magazine’s special correspondent, glamorous tall-drink-of-water Amy Fine Collins. Friday night welcomed a small-ish gathering to Long View Gallery to see the Fall collection, rub shoulders with Wu and Collins and eat some very adorable tiny food. Collins was dressed in a long, dramatic gown from the collection, which emphasized the back, long sleeves (hurrah!), lace details, and impeccably tailored, First-Lady-classic taste.

WWD reports that one customer bought a whopping 41 pieces – basically the entire collection.

I got a sneak peek at the goods up for grabs at the Junior League’s Tossed & Found sale – here are some of my favorite finds. To be clear, the event is basically a rummage sale – while the organizers have organized what looked like thousands of things into distinct areas by size and item type, you must be ready – you must LOVE – to dig.

I’ll pick & announce the winner in this space TODAY at 2, so leave your comments on the giveaway post if you haven’t already, and come back after 2 to find out who won!

UPDATE//WINNER: Thanks to everyone who entered! The tickets go to Megan, who is looking for patterns and colors to perk up her dark wardrobe (sounds like a solid spring resolution). I really hate not being able to give each of you something, so I’ll try to do more giveaways in the future.

Brilliant: Mikeal Jansson’s photographs of aging rock stars in skinny suits in the current issue of T, the New York Times‘ style magazine. Iggy Pop (and his oddly lovely crepe-papery chest skin), in Prada, opens the feature, called “Ballad of a Thin Man.”
