Gilt City’s warehouse/closet revealed

14 Feb

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Friday the 10th Gilt City DC gave access to its treasured warehouse to the VIP/press, with following sale event on Saturday for the public. Long View gallery was buzzing and babbling with excitement of privileged shoppers, digging through goods and sipping on the campaign. Rivers of designers garments, shoes, accessories and whatnot were filtered by DC fashionistas, leaving messy piles behind like 3 year-olds on Halloween playdate. Yours truly attended the first part and it was scary to imagine what has actually happened on Saturday night with about 1000 people RSVPd for the event.

Enjoy some pics which I could not help but treat in randomly vintage-y style. Oh and by the way those granola bars were beyond amazing. What was the brand again? Were eaten ruthlessly.

Tons and tons of stuff! I wonder if there is anything left now?

Gilt City’s “Friends with benefits” preview with cocktails

23 Jul

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Again, those lucky got their free tickets to “Friends with benefits” movie preview, even before it hit the theaters, plus a cocktail reception before, by GiltCity. Bar area in Clyde’s restaurant at Gallery Place Chinatown was filled with excited previewers-to-be, mingling, sipping on the cocktails and craving on the bites. When it’s hot like that outside, all you really want is to be inside of air-conditioned environment, absorbing cold drinks. Tuesday, July 19, was one of the days to do so.

Enjoy the pictures.
