Review: Morgan Magazine Anniversary Party at John Doe NYC by the Nomad Hotel

Spirikal’s Bottomline:  Be it good or bad, make the most of any situation

Although I said I’d try to avoid negativity in my reviews, the Morgan Mag party on Sat. Sept. 19  was disappointing because they had advertised it as a meet-and-greet with minor celebrities and people in the fashion / lifestyle industry. The venue was ill-chosen because it was an ordinary sports / neighborhood bar – far from the promoter’s redcarpet promises on the invite.  In fact, I almost mistook it for an after-work drink up or a going away party for a despised co-worker.

In spite of the poor planning and my doomed expectations of swankiness, I decided to forget all that and get out meet some people. As a girlfriend of mine always tells me to make the most of any situation, I actually enjoyed myself with a glass of sauvignon blanc and chatted with some beautiful gals from Maven Cocktails and Charmed Feathers jewerly design who turned up. And how could I forget chatting with the stunning Remi Odunsi and Zo from Jhilburn Menswear. It just goes to show that you can turn any disaster into a fun evening of conversation and connections.  From now on, however, I’m going to give unknown fashion mag promotion parties a wide birth and seek out some new event territory.
