Thanks Carole and Sabina for posting information about this event held at the NYC Saks Fifth Avenue Store. I did attend it last night and wouldn't have known about it without your posts. It was a beauty junkie/cosmetic lovers dream come true that only a store in NYC could pull off the way they did. It also raised money for a NYC hospital and their OB/GYN department. The music was loud–real loud and very upbeat. They had young guys with their shirts off serving hor d'oeuvres, a person didn't have to look very long to spend that $50 gift card and there was something for everyone. They pulled out all the stops.

I went because Jay Feinberg (aka Jay Strongwater) was there signing his 2005 Fall/Holiday solids and all of his solids were availlable for sale and to take home. Jay would never come to my home states of Montana and Wyoming so this was a do or die chance to finally meet him. I also wanted to see the solids in person and my opinion is they are better in person than in the pictures. This collection isn't bad and I like them better than I thought I would although previous year collections were stronger. I did get the Beautiful Flowering Flacon for Jay to sign. Of course I had to get something for him to sign and to commemorate this event for me. As others have posted here, I found him to be very nice, cordial, interested in what I was talking about and yes I did mention to him about this site which he did know about us. There was an assistant from his company with him and she was really nice to talk to as well.

It was a great experience for me and I am in deep gratitude to Carole and Sabina and to Lisa and Jack because without this site I would have never fullfilled my dream to meet and talk with Jay. Thank you. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />
