Lady Gaga’s Workshop at Barney’s!!!


Hey little monsters!!  I was super excited to check out Gaga’s workshop at Barney’s in person today!  I  heard it was a wonderland of whimsy not to be missed, and that is a truly accurate description! From the moment the elevator doors open to the 5th floor, you are assaulted with imagery, colors, and eye candy! It was like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory….but Gaga style. There is an entire section of just candy, cookies, lollipops and treats, all either in Gaga’s likeness, or representing some part of her style or personality.  It was fun, unique, clever, and honestly such a refreshing take on the typical type of gift shop for the holidays.  I HAD to leave with something…..read on to see what I got! 😉

This is what you see when you first enter the floor.  A giant sculpture of a Gaga-esque cartoonish statue, wearing an outfit of fishnets and platform heels that I am sure I have seen on Gaga before. The shards of glass on the floor around it, along with the pink chains sectioning it off, complete the fantasy feel. 

For those outside of NYC, I have to tell you it was raining today, like a monsoon!!! My best friend Debbie and I had plans to check out Gaga’s workshop though, and we weren’t gonna let a little rain hold us back!  I wore my new Mackage coat, which kept me warm and dry in the heavy downpour, BDG jeans, and my Chinese Laundry flat boots.  (in retrospect, I should have worn my hunter rain boots, but I had no idea how bad the weather was LOL)  .


When you enter and turn right, there is the candy area!  I LOVE these cookies!!!  “Little Monster” butter cookies! Great gift!  And, they are delicious butter cookies by the way! I bough my boyfriend the large Gaga cookie…..full body….but sadly she broke in 3 pieces on the way home.  Trying to walk around NYC in the rain is tough, and poor cookie Gaga was decapitated in the process.  No worries, my boyfriend said it was delicious anyway!

Lady Gaga’s decapitated head LOL

Gaga’s sunglasses!!!

 

I LOVED the Gaga sunglasses! She had a few different styles, some outrageous and not really fit for daily wear…LOL  But….these were perfect! Stylish, wearable, with a hint of Gaga flair! I had to have them!  Guess what color I ended up buying? Keep reading to see 😉

Awesome “hair” bow headbands! They came in a variety of colors….my bff Debbie and I had to try them on….

Debbie also had fun trying on the lace sunglasses…..

 

There were stuffed “Little Monsters”!

There were teacups…..

Books….

“Paw” necklaces…..

Statues….(how amazing are these?)

Gaga’s shoe…..

And Gaga snow globes!  Perfect stocking stuffer for the ultimate Gaga fan!

I have to say I was really impressed with the entire floor.  There were tons of cute, great gifts, ranging from low priced (candy, chocolates, fake nails) to moderate (sunglasses, snow globes,) to pricey (leather jackets)…….seriously something for everyone!!!

Oh, and about what *I* bought????? hee hee…..drumroll………….

I got these amazing yellow sunglasses! I love the shape, style, and accents.  They are unlike any other sunglasses I own.  I really wanted a fun pair of shades, and these were perfect! Love the yellow color too! Can’t wait to rock them in future posts! 😉

Hope you enjoyed my review of Gaga’s workshop! Are any of you planning on making a trip to Barney’s before it closes?  Let me know if you do!  xoxoxoxo

Cold night in Times Square

The temperature in NYC is dropping.  Perfect excuse to wear my new Mackage “Joey” puffy jacket.  LOVE.  It keeps me super warm, it’s comfortable, and I love the little peep holes for your thumbs. 😉 So glad I grabbed it on sale in Bloomingdales. 

I also took out my new Celine luggage tote for the first time.  What a great bag!  It’s my first Celine, and I totally understand the craze over the line.  The style is amazing, it fits everything, and the craftsmanship is to die for.  Great investment piece. 

 

And what’s a trip to Times Square without a visit from “The Naked Cowboy”? LOL

He was very funny 😉


No place is as beautiful as NYC.  But then again, maybe I am biased. 😉
