Celebrity-Spotting with Iman at New York Fashion Week

Fashion Week is always a star-studded affair. During previous seasons, Everything She Wants has seen a smattering of celebs at various shows including actress Gabourey Sidibie in the front row at Christian Siriano; legendary hip-hop duo Salt-N-Pepa at Carmen Marc Valvo; and former "America's Next Top Model" staples Miss Jay Alexander (runway coach extraordinaire), Jay Manuel (art director and makeup maven) and Nigel Barker (noted fashion photographer), and a gaggle of "Real Housewives" pretty much everywhere.

And of course, there was the time we got a glimpse of Anna Wintour's signature bob as she whizzed into the Tents at Bryant Park.

But the stars were literally aligned in one place for the Spring/Summer 2013 season, where we spotted several fashion industry A-listers at the launch of supermodel Iman's travel website, Destination IMAN.  Looking absolutely fabulous and flawless in a form-fitting, black leather cut-out dress, Iman held court with designers Rachel Roy, Chris Benz and Rachel Zoe; author and fashion commentator Simon Doonan; top model and social media maven Coco Rocha; and stylists June Ambrose and Robert Verdi at the swanky event at the Dream Downtown Hotel.

While we didn't learn much about Destination IMAN -- her upcoming site dedicated to her travels and how they relate to the worlds of fashion, beauty and lifestyle -- we had a great time drinking way too much champagne and star gazing.  Plus, we went home with a stylish I-Pad case (if only we had an I-Pad) and a lovely shade of burgundy lipstick ("Black Brandy") from Iman Cosmetics.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
