And what a week it has been. The Joonbug office here in New York is bustling as the event staff gets ready for PROM Class of 2010, our adult version of the momentous occasion in all our lives. Our Events Director, Staci and our PR Manager, Paige have really outdone themselves and we are looking forward to a spectacular night this Saturday at Espace on 42nd Street, just off of Times Square. I would love for all my little Joonbugs from Miami to be in attendance, but keeping with the theme of sophistication and formality, my choices for you this week will be all velvety and top notch. Aren't they always?
