I’ve stayed at the W hotel several times for business. It’s quite the posh place to stay and its usually surrounded by Manhattan’s many hot spots.
But when I went to the W Hotel on the upper east side one day, it was for a different reason.
W Hotels and Grammy Award-winning artist will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas anyone?) launched a new initiative with the Ekocycle brand to launch new sheets made from recycled materials.
According to their official release:
Rolling out into W Hotels in North America first with global properties to follow, each king size sheet set utilizes approximately 31 recycled 20 oz. plastic bottles – which equates to more than 268,000 plastic bottles across all W Hotel beds in North America. The result is bedding that is as luxurious as it is environmentally conscious, ensuring that guests continue to have the same incredibly comfortable sleep they have come to expect from a night in a W Hotel bed.
What a stylish way to recycle!
For this event, I wore a body-hugging white dress with a vine pattern from Hollywood actress Eva Mendes and her New York & Company collection. As I’ve previously mentioned here, I adore Eva’s collectionsof old Hollywood-inspired fashion, which are price appropriate, as well as perfect for day or night. If you haven’t gotten anything from Eva Mendes, do yourself a favor and hop to it.
To finish my look, I wore a vine necklace with emeralds, which was originally my mother’s. I remember as a child going through her jewelry box and wearing this same necklace in front of the mirror, pretending I was an old Hollywood star.
Myself and BFF Alexcia had another fun evening celebrating at the W Hotel on Lexington Avenue.
Oh yeah, don’t forget to recycle. You want to take care of our environment, and Alexcia would insist I end this post with that note. =)
