too CHIC to ignore

Last night I had my t-shirt launch party at Arthur & Daughters! What a great time hanging with friends and family, taking photos with Seth Nenstiel, eating “IMC Pocket Square” cupcakes (see picture below), and interacting with happy customers. It was fun throwing a store party for my first design collaboration with artc Creative and I’m super excited to launch the t-shirt online today! CLICK HERE (unisex and super soft). Love the shirt? Ok good! Participate in my Instagram contest by uploading your outfit of the day, using the hashtag #toochictoignore, and tagging me @ianmcrumm. On 6/18 I’ll see who uploaded the CHICEST outfit and gift them something just as chic.

Serrano’s

Last night I went to Serrano to try the new spring menu. Uh, yum! If you follow me on twitter you probably saw me tweet @SerranoPhilly about their new menu and how I was enjoying it!

First up was an appetizer tasting with a watermelon salad, steamed mussels, and a meatball flatbread!

Then for the main course I had jumbo scallops with mushroom, sausage, & fingerling potatoes in Arbil chili gastrique.. Delicious!

Here’s a Vine with the scallops in it.

Finally for dessert there was an apple tart with house made vanilla ice cream.

I decided to dress funky as it was the first day of spring. And by funky I mean I worn black pants, a black sweater, and then everything else color and printed. Neutral basics and fun accessories.
Here’s my look..

Diesel Opens at King of Prussia!

Yesterday I went to the store launch party for the new Diesel store at King of Prussia Mall. My friend Lauren of The Style Darling was hosting the event and I wanted to go support her. I played dress up and got my picture taken by the Diesel crew. I also Instagrammed a shot of my outfit (see picture below).

Fashion Meets Art at Inliquid

When I went to Inliquid the other week, I was captivated by the art involving fashion. There were some nice pieces up for sale and I would have been honored to walk away with any of these!

The last three images are my favorite. They are actually all apart of the same long picture. I snapped three sections of the wall art to better fit the camera lens. Which is your favorite? 

Gorgeous at The Ritz

Last night I went to an event called “Gorgeous” at The Ritz Carlton. It was an evening of fashion and art to benefit City of Hope . Here are some of my favorites shots!

I wish I would have positioned myself better. A lot of my shots weren’t so good. There were many looks from Joan Shepp I loved.

I just downloaded the app, Vine. Mini videos integrated with Twitter are a great tool for fashion bloggers and brands to communicate more with their audiences. Here are some of my Vines from the night.
