above: the scene at the T-Mobile Sidekick LX launch
Despite the flurry of activity in my work and personal life this week, I had the chance to attend a fun launch party for the new T-Mobile Sidekick LX. I tested the device, which has a signature flip horizontal screen and intuitive rubber keys-- features which make it perfect for texting and checking your Facebook and Twitter accounts. Understand I'm no tech guru, so it was flattering that I was even invited at all. The lovely Jordana of clutch22 was there rocking some serious green sandals along with a band of other stylish fashion bloggers. It was kind of overwhelming to see people I've been following in the "blogosphere" and I'm kind of a shy fangirl so I didn't get to meet them all. Next time, I will!
Hope you enjoy these weekend links... and have a wonderful weekend. 80 degrees this weekend in New York: I Love New York, indeed!

Refinery 29 brings us news of a new month-long sample sale pop-up shop at Port Authority starting Friday May 1st... Great news for lovers of emerging labels/brands.
If you're in New York and looking for some new shades, a pop-up Prada/Sunglass Hut concept store (rendering pictured above) is coming to Rockefeller Center for one week, starting Tuesday April 28th through Tuesday May 5th. After May 5th, the styles will be available on the Sunglass Hut website.
Nothing makes me happier than wearing a thick statement belt. You can buy three belts from Linea Pelle for $49.99 each (retail starts at $200) from Shopflick's private sales site starting Monday April 27th. For that price, you can afford to buy all three!

And last, but definitely not least, check out the invitation and RSVP for May 8th's Fashion for All's Donation Pre-Party. This is the warmup to a great charity event to be held on May 16th in Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood, all organized by writer/blogger extraordinaire, Felicia Sullivan. If you donate items, you can enjoy shopping MINT Jodi Arnold pieces at wholesale prices. Hope to see you there!
