[Continued from Part 1: The Shows]
The most fun part of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week--at least for me--are the fabulous lounges and other parties associated with this crazy time of fashion, beauty and foodie guilt after looking at thin models all week!

One of my favorite lounges was given by Spanx in the Empire Hotel, which has turned out to be a regular lounge at Fashion Week in the past three years. There was a do-it-yourself candy bar, a lot of Valentine's decorations and about a hundred styles of Spanx foundation garments, hose, outerwear and swimsuits on display. A best-kept secret is that their swimsuits not only hold you in where you need it, but actually create strong curves even on the most up-and-down figure types because the firmness is graduated in many pieces (and yes, even the bikinis and tankinis have strong support)!
