Killing Time Au Musee

Comments | | Print

It's a blessing and a curse for Sao Paulo Fashion Week to take place almost entirely under one roof (in the gorgeous Oscar Neimeyer-designed Bienal building). A blessing because it means no running between shows, no outrageous cab expenses, no cross-town rushing, but a curse because, well, 8 hours in one enclosed space can make Chic go a bit stir-crazy. Enter the Sao Paulo Museum of Modern Art (Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, or MAM), just a few yards away in the Ibirapuera Park, which has an extra dose of culture, a cafe perfect for a quick escape, and a museum gift shop. Bonjour, souvenirs!

Lashes to Lashes

One of the myriad beauties of summer is the ability to simplify, product-wise. Chic relies on a bold lip, a touch of powder, and of course, epic mascara. When it's either go big or go home, consider Maybelline’s Falsies by Volum’ Express mascara, which makes lashes so long and fluttery that they look almost faux. Plus! At under $10 a pop, you can replace your tube when the stuff gets the slightest bit dry.

Chic and charitable, what more do you need? THE DETAILS: $699, Willoughby's

You SPiN Me Round

Amanda Seyfried, we were fans when you were a Mean Girl, but now we just worship. Pourquoi? Because you sported a cozy SPiN New York t-shirt yesterday in West Hollywood. Given that the club is located in the basement of our office building, Chic adores nothing more than a few sliders and a half-dozen rounds of table tennis. What better way to waste away a summer Friday? Visit Spinyc.com to reserve your table...
