The Recap: The Swarovski Event With Eric Daman

{Bling by Swarovski. This one comes out this fall.}

Last night, I slipped over to Lincoln Road for the Swarovski event with Eric Daman and Ria Michelle. Daman, for those who don’t know, is a famed costume designer from Gossip Girl and The Carrie Diaries. He dresses Serena van Der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf and Dan Humphrey for a living. Last night, however, he judged Miamians dressing the part of those characters. Turns out, Miami has Upper East Side style down pat. Here’s a look at the crystal-encrusted bash.

OMG, it’s Blair and Chuck. OK, not really, but made you look twice.

The big winner, Miami’s Blair: Kelly Saks.

{Me and kiddo with Eric Daman. He told me I had a ’20s vibe going on. I’m just gearing up for Gatsby madness.}

{Hello, best gift bag ever.}
