In case you haven't heard, we are extending our #GiveMeAMackie contest! You have until the end of the month to win a one of a kind first collection Bob Mackie couture piece. The dress is also on display in the window of one of New York City's most acclaimed vintage store, Screaming Mimi's. To celebrate the contest extension and the launch of a possible new Mackie product, we decided to throw a little party last week at Screaming Mimi's. Hosted by the lovely vintage style expert, Sammy Davis, guests and vintage enthusiasts enjoyed wine by Chateau de Bern and delectable cupcakes by Butterlane while perusing an array of unique fashions, entering our contest, and checking out the lovely new notebooks based on the Bob Mackie Art Collection. Attendees were greeted by Sammy's enthusiastically upbeat attitude which went perfectly well with Screaming Mimi's owner, Laura Wills' delightful charm! Vogue contributor and vintage lover Lynn Yaeger also stopped by to revel in the fun and excitement. Here are some pics from last Wednesday's event snapped by photographer Diane Dulgerian.

About Diane Dulgerian
Diane Dulgerian has been obsessed with photography ever since she was a child. Always with a camera in hand, friends have often said she takes too many photos. Too many photos? Not possible. Diane feels as though her advanced degrees in art have molded her into the photographer she is today. Her trained eye captures photos in a style all her own. Diane chooses to focus on interesting compositions, bold colors, and using natural light when possible.
About Butter Lane: The Better Cupcake
Butter Lane is devoted to making you the perfect cupcake. With a focus on pure ingredients like real vanilla beans, pure cocoa and dark chocolate, we’re giving foodies something to sink their teeth into besides straight sugar (although we have some of that, too!).
We think of it as cupcakes for grownups.
At Butter Lane we offer both French and American buttercream icing. What's the difference? French buttercream is made with egg whites, butter and granulated sugar, while American buttercream is made with confectioners sugar and butter. The French is more like a meringue while the American is like the familiar icing we all know. Can't decide? Try some of both and let us know which one you like!
About Chateau de Berne:
Provence has been a wine-growing area for nearly 2,600 years. Reputed throughout the world for its rosé wines, the region's temperate climate also makes it a cradle for fine wine growing in general. Wine making has been the Château de Berne's core activity since 1750. Today, the Château is planted with 292 acres of vines and fitted with ultra-modern facilities.
