Right now, I should be in the city at the Tommy Hilfiger Fifth Avenue Global Flagship hobnobbing with Mr. Hilfiger and other guests at the official opening night after party celebrating the Whitney Museum Biennial. Instead, I just finished doing the dishes and am now sitting in my home office reviewing today's progress on my book and finalized tomorrow's "To Do" list. It would have been fun to put on a beaded Milly cardigan, fitted DVF jeans and Be&D booties and show of my new LaLucca Giza clutch. The art crowd would have loved the artsy, hand-painted bag. So goes the not-always-so-glamorous, bag-a-licious life that I lead. While I passed on tonight's glitzy festivities, I do plan to visit the Whitney Biennial exhibit. If you get a chance check out the emerging and contemporary American artists and do so this Saturday, February 27th, as Tommy Hilfiger will underwrite admission to the museum for the first 1,000 visitors (open to the public on February 25th through May 30th). Tonight's celebration is in honor of the sponsorship; it's also gives TH a chance to debut a limited-edition tote bag featuring imagery from acclaimed photographer and Biennial artist Ari Marcopoulos. The tote will be available at the Whitney and Tommy Hilfiger Fifth Avenue beginning tomorrow, with 50% of proceeds benefiting the Whitney Museum. Get yours for $98 retail. Use it as a beach tote or grocery bag -- it will certainly garner plenty of attention next time you're picking out tomatoes at the farmer's market in Union Square.
Have a bag-a-licious day!
