Sure, you could commission a custom designer dress — and risk being homeless once you get the bill.
Or you could go to Albertine Workspace, where charming owner/genius Kyung Lee is churning out beautiful bespoke pieces at off-the-rack prices.
In our latest video, Lee takes us through the whole process — from picking out styles and fabrics to trying on (and loving) the final product.
She knows what looks good and won’t lead you astray (seriously, you’ll want her to be your best friend). Plus, she’s been known to break out prosecco from time to time.
And you won’t have to drink it from a brown paper bag.
Albertine Workspace, 19 Christopher Street, between Greenwich Avenue and Waverly Place (212-924-8515).
Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
