SOoooo while I was getting sun-burned at a Flea Market in New Jersey and NOT making nearly enough money to justify the one and half hours spent on Friday organizing stuff, getting up at 5:30am on Saturday to set up the booth and spending the day smiling at lookers, not buyers….yes while I was doing that I could have been in Liberty Park attending the 2012 Veuve Cliquot PoloClassic!

Invited to a holiday cocktail party? Or to a Hanukkah latke supper? Or a Christmas dinner party?  You know you gotta bring a hostess gift…of course you can always opt for the traditional (read boring and unimaginative) bottle of wine, perhaps even some Veuve Clicquot.  OR you could bring a jar of that strawberry jam you made this summer.  In the past I have made batches of seasoned nuts and given them as gifts – but we’re running out of time to shop for ingredients, find appropriate containers and then make the peppermint bark or spicy pecans, so take a look at this list and maybe a couple of the items will jump off the page for you or at least inspire you to think a bit creatively when picking out that Hostess Gift.

It was a gorgeous day in Manhattan with blue skies and sun shining down on Governor’s Island where an audience of fashionistas, philanthropists and glitterati gathered to watch a Polo Match.  The occasion was the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. 

Donna Karan visited Haiti after the devastating  earthquake last year and was deeply moved by the artistic spirit of the people.  She came home and set up Hope Help & Rebuild Haiti.  Veuve Clicquot chose it as the beneficiary of their annual Polo Classic, Hugh Jackman (one good-looking Aussie) and Nacho (one hunky Argentinian) co-hosted and thus a major social and charitable event is born.  It was held on Governor’s Island, a place in New York City rich in history and so this will be a two part blog post;  But first, the fashionistas because they constitute a very classy, eclectic FAB FOTO FRIDAY.

Wearing the colors of the day!
