Our good friend and Women’s Mafia member, Style Correspondent Jené Luciani, will be hosting a Bravo-filmed uber-glamorous event on Thursday March 10th that celebrates both her new Couture Collaboration with Project Runway’s Chris March and the launch of the digital version of “The Bra Book.” It’s at the restaurant at the Charles Hotel from 6-9pm.

The Women’s Mafia will be in the Hamptons this weekend enjoying the start of the Polo season, the Hampton Designer Showhouse, Happy Hours at our share house and — we can now share — the exciting Re-Launch of Madame Tongs!
Madame Tong’s Redeux
Saturday, July 24th, 10 PM to 4 AM 256 Elm St., Southampton
We will be co-hosting a special launch party this Saturday night to bring back the best indoor-outdoor lounge in the Hamptons. This is the place we have all been missing since last summer!
The new owners have expanded the dance floor into the backyard, installed an all-new sound system, and added 2 more bars and created an exciting new menu, sparing no expense in re-establishing Madame Tong’s as the place to be in the Hamptons.
Call or email us to be on the guest list!
Our house will be hosting happy hours on Friday and Saturday night before we head out for the evening’s festivities. We are planning to go Dune on Friday night and Madame Tong’s on Saturday night. Let me know if you want to join us!
Call our Hamptons Concierge David Shapiro for directions and to make sure you are on the list.
Our house is sold out this weekend (even waitlist), but we have a few spots for other weekends this summer. Call our Hamptons Concierge David Shapiro at 917-806-4171 for more information and to book your vacation. Make sure to mention that you are a Women’s Mafia member to secure the best rooms and rates.
Whatever you do, don’t let the last 7 weekends of the summer pass you by!

“It is wonderful to see a person contributing to society as an individual human being, regardless of social position or importance.” Raisa Gorbachev, fundraiser and philosopher, (1932-1999)
I was so inspired by the new friendships and the beautiful EngieStyle looks that sprouted in “Once Upon a Time.” It is amazing to work around women who value each other’s skills and talents more than each other’s clothes. However, there’s no better way to celebrate life and success than getting decked out for a fashion fundraiser!
From our first meeting, I intuitively knew that Marcy, Engie, Wendy, and everyone involved in planning this event shared the ability to forge an incredible result…because we each find mediocrity intolerable, our talents must not be wasted. I was very excited to see a fashion show with an improvisation representing Engie’s early career. I imagine it seemed totally ridiculous that I was actually crying alongside the catwalk, but when I identified with meaning of the story that the models recounted, it was heartfelt. I believe that when you make sense of and find value in your experiences (good and bad), you move forward in life. I know we’ve all had moments that justified throwing in the towel, and I reflected on how much easier it is to attain happiness when you don’t let go of your goals.
I was also reminded that after all is said and done, my happiest moments are when I am able to bring people together for philanthropy. The significance of “Once Upon a Time” to me was that we all came together for a cause to make the city a more beautiful place. I loved seeing Wendy Levene Goldberg encourage several young models to contribute their time to charity; she inspired them to see how amazing it feels to give. I loved hearing my other philanthropist friend Emily Conner’s reaction to Engie’s first look: “I’m wearing THAT to my Christmas party!” And I think we all loved the audience’s applause.
Once upon a time, we each decided that New York City was the place to dream and to make life different. Thanks to Women’s Mafia, on Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, it all came together! Continue reading →
