The New York Junior League, on Friday evening, hosted its annual winter party, themed Apres Ski, for its members and their guests. Held inside the historic Junior League house on the Upper East Side, the fete was one not to be missed. Ladies dressed in their themed ski gear and cold weather garb danced the night away on multiple floors. Guests were given some cool shades courtesy of Knockaround Sunglasses, which they rocked throughout the after party.
Wine was flowing, Bourbon and gin kept the gents happy, while a majority of the guests murdered the dance floor to a top 40 DJ. My friends Whitney Kuhn and Hallie Watson and I mingled and danced to some oldies but goodies but took the opportunity to tour the house, which was decorated impeccably to feel like a winter resort.
The New York Junior League really knows how to throw a party. The house was full until the very end when party goers headed to Brother Jimmy’s for a late night party. If you’re wondering whether there were a lot of guys there, the answer is ABSOLUTELY! I was very impressed by the amount of testosterone in the room, giving the ladies dance partners for the night.
A NOTE TO SELF FOR NEXT YEAR: A majority of party attendees go out all to dress for the theme. If you do plan on going out to another place afterwards, I suggest a sweater dress and boots.
It’s also wise to buy tickets in advance instead of trying your luck at the door.
The next Junior League event will be the Winter Ball, themed Moonlight in Marrakesh on March 3, 2012. Visit www.nyjl.org for more information on tickets to the dinner and dancing.
