Kickin' It: Polish Bar Brooklyn Fab 5 Celebration

Last night I was invited to Polish Bar of Brooklyn's 5 Year anniversary celebration. Owned and operated by former beauty executive Tricia Lee, Polish Bar of Brooklyn is BK's first full-service beauty bar, featuring typical mani/pedi salon services as well as beauty consultations and more.

Though I had never been to PBB before last night's shindig, I've always heard great things about it. So when Renae Bluitt of In Her Shoes Blog told me she was throwing the shindig, I didn't hesitate to make the trek from Harlem to join in for the festivities. Here's what I got into last night in BK:

 I partied it up with some of my favorite bloggers on the rooftop of Soco Kitchen. The lovely ladies on the top right were a fab bunch to chill with: stylist Kai-Lee Parker, curvy blogger and freelance writer Danielle Young, Style & Beauty Doctor's own Danielle Gray and Blake Von D!

Also spotted Claire of The Fashion Bomb (pic above courtesy her blog), and Jessica of Glamazons Blog!

I wanted to go Brooklyn chic with a pop of color so I donned this vintage sheer animal print top from Buffalo Exchange, my H&M mini skirt, a black camisole, Forever 21 wedges, and my Elliott Luca burnt orange handbag.

After the party, was the (unofficial) after party. We shimmied ourselves downstairs and enjoyed a delicious meal at new restaurant SoCo in Brooklyn. I had a foodgasm. This place is amazing!

While there I sampled a myriad of things (a few of them gracefully given compliments of the chef- thanks Kingsley!)), but my faves are above: Top left: Fried Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles, Top right: Mac & Cheese, Bottom left: Sugar coated donuts, Bottom right: Watermelon Tequila Lemonade. 

I normally don't blog about food (though I'm a foodie at heart) but this place was way too good not to brag about. Brooklyn babes, or those visiting - take note! SoCo is located at 509 Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn.

Overall I had a faboosh night with good company, good food & good times. Check out the PBB Fab 5 recap over at UPTOWN for more pics from the event!
