The party we held for Valentine's was still fresh in my mind as Raul and I boarded the plane for New York. We were all set to celebrate our dear friend Christine's birthday in style!
Even though it was FREEZING outside, we all donned our evening best and headed out into the night. There were over 25 women in attendance, so I took the opportunity to glam them up with some of my jewelry! Classy evening looks were favored, such as pearls, onyx, and quartz coated in titanium. As for the men, their preferred accessories were Pocket Squares and Ascots, which made me think about adding those items to my collections! Looking at my son Dino present himself as a well-dressed gentleman, I can clearly see his father's and my sense of style shining through!
After we spruced ourselves up, it was off to The Rainbow Room for an unforgettable evening of great friends and even a little romance!
New York's famous Rainbow Room was the perfect setting for this over-the-top fabulous birthday party. Opened in 1934, it was originally a social club and fine dining establishment and in its gloried history, it was considered the most stylish place to be seen. Hollywood A-List celebrities were frequent visitors, including Joan Crawford, Patricia Neal, Howard Hughes and Ginger Rogers. Musicians can consider playing here to be one of the highlights of their career as they join the ranks of Tommy Dorsey, Louis Armstrong, and Tony Bennett.
Raul is now among those who have been honored with the chance to play music at this spectacular place. I give my thanks to everyone involved, this priceless event will always be one of my proudest moments.
It was such a treat to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and escape to New York with my family and friends. Knowing Raul was about to start his world tour made it even more important to me that we had this time together. Our schedules were crazy and it was colder than I've ever been in my entire life, but we made memories that night which will warm my heart forever.
This was truly the one of the most memorable Valentine's Days I've ever had and I'm so thankful for the chance to spend this amazing night with my wonderful husband. And of course, many thanks to Christine, the birthday girl!
