With Halloween nipping at our heels, everybody’s asking “what are you going to be for Halloween?” Every year, without fail, the theme for women seems to be “Look as slutty as possible without getting arrested for indecent exposure” and I’m sure the same will go for this year. While those costumes are awesome and fun in their own right, Urban Outfitters is offering alternatives that cover up and keep you warm (they also allow you to finally be able to show your parents pictures of you on Halloween). Here are some fun and SFW options for your Halloween costumes:
On the crossroads of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, this posh lounge truly fits their motto, “one of a kind.” With spacious interior featuring oak ceilings, ostrich leather walls, a roaring fireplace, mirror walled outdoor smoking area, and mazelike floor patterns with an array of VIP tables patronized by celebrities and top models. 1OAK is the place to see and be seen by New York's hottest celebrities.

People are talking about The Social Network. And, it seems to have made its mark at Provocateur. It was just another night when Sean Parker, past President of Facebook made his arrival at the super-strict downtown nightclub. Door goddess, Sheena Tesora, didn't want to let the girls he was with in. Why? Because they were too short. No one in the line was surprised. Provocateur is known for its ultra selective door and it's known around town that they do have a height requirement for the ladies. Parker, in a monotone rage, promised to erase Tesora from Facebook.

Hello again Joonbuggers!
Ok before we go any further, I have a confession to make, fashion week knocked me out. This past week the only thing I've been dancing with is the flu bug. In fact, the only reason I left the house at all was solely so I could bring you this weeks news!
Oh and something else, I may as well get all these out the way - I promised to interview someone special in New York this week. Well I did, but I didn't interview the person I had set out to, so I have got someone else who's a bit special instead - not that you would know the difference, since you didn't know who my original guest was ;-). But anyway, I'll keep that one for a column in the near future, when he gets out of bed, or has finished at the nail salon or whatever else he does when he's ignoring my calls!
