Can't Stop Won't Stop

On Thursday night, we teamed up with our friends from LES shop and showroom International Playground to throw a party for two of their designers, Upstate and Chromat. Music was provided by our favorite friends from Paper Magazine, Drew Elliott and Alexis Swerdloff, who might be newly-minted DJs, but are total pros at getting rowdy on the dancefloor. It was also Christina Via's birthday, and old-school party staples like Michael Musto came out to dance alongside all of the Chromat-wearing caged revelers. However, the real scenestealers were Astrid of Upstate, and Becca and Emily of Chromat, who represented by wearing their own outlandish designs; Becca even wore a florescent light-up caged crown powered by a battery pack hidden in her ponytail! Unfortunately, one of the Upstate designers, Kalen, got sick and couldn't make it to the party, so we'll just have to have another one next season! Make sure to check out more party snaps on Stylecaster, taken by my favorite blog-girl-about-town Susie G!

Christina and I wore matching cages of course! I wore mine with my T by Alexander Wang cape, Thakoon x Target cardigan, H&M dress, leggings c/o YC: Ying Chu, and Barneys New York fur hat. Christina wore hers over her Count Aapo tee.

The caged-out Chromat girls, Becca and Emily. You can't tell from the photograph, but Becca's crown lit up the entire night, and was charged via a battery pack hidden inside her ponytail!

Even some boys got in on the action
