Last night I had my t-shirt launch party at Arthur & Daughters! What a great time hanging with friends and family, taking photos with Seth Nenstiel, eating “IMC Pocket Square” cupcakes (see picture below), and interacting with happy customers. It was fun throwing a store party for my first design collaboration with artc Creative and I’m super excited to launch the t-shirt online today! CLICK HERE (unisex and super soft). Love the shirt? Ok good! Participate in my Instagram contest by uploading your outfit of the day, using the hashtag #toochictoignore, and tagging me @ianmcrumm. On 6/18 I’ll see who uploaded the CHICEST outfit and gift them something just as chic. Multiple entries are allowed and encouraged.
Here are some photos from last night:

First up was an appetizer tasting with a watermelon salad, steamed mussels, and a meatball flatbread!
Then for the main course I had jumbo scallops with mushroom, sausage, & fingerling potatoes in Arbil chili gastrique.. Delicious!
Here’s a Vine with the scallops in it.
Finally for dessert there was an apple tart with house made vanilla ice cream.
I decided to dress funky as it was the first day of spring. And by funky I mean I worn black pants, a black sweater, and then everything else color and printed. Neutral basics and fun accessories.
Here’s my look..

Hope you a had a great first day of spring!
Yesterday I went to the store launch party for the new Diesel store at King of Prussia Mall. My friend Lauren of The Style Darling was hosting the event and I wanted to go support her. I played dress up and got my picture taken by the Diesel crew. I also Instagrammed a shot of my outfit (see picture below).
Those are Jogg Jeans. Super comfortable. I need a pair!
Music makes the people come together – YEAHHHH
Here’s the Instagram I’ve been talking about this whole post.

When I went to Inliquid the other week, I was captivated by the art involving fashion. There were some nice pieces up for sale and I would have been honored to walk away with any of these!
The last three images are my favorite. They are actually all apart of the same long picture. I snapped three sections of the wall art to better fit the camera lens. Which is your favorite?
Last night I went to Joan Shepp for an event honoring women who influence Philadelphia. I snapped some shots of cute clothes and well dressed attendees. Here are the images!

Love the pattern on his jacket!
A purple look on Rakia Reynolds
Love her sleeves and of course the Givenchy shoes!
I want to buy more camo pieces
Sequins on sequins on sequins!
Style Wallflower was there too!
I instagrammed this photo last night. I WANT this Dries Van Noten jacket ASAP!
Another Carmelita Couture
I wish I would have positioned myself better. A lot of my shots weren’t so good. There were many looks from Joan Shepp I loved.
From: Metro Mens Clothing (I love this look. Wish I got a better picture!)
I just downloaded the app, Vine. Mini videos integrated with Twitter are a great tool for fashion bloggers and brands to communicate more with their audiences. Here are some of my Vines from the night.
I also made a two Vines of Denise Fike, but I’ll share those in a few days when I upload the cute portrait she drew of me!
My friend Priya went to Gorgeous as well. Here is our Instagram!
I also met the lovely Caitlin from Cobblestones & Stilettos. Wish we would have taken a picture together. Next time!
Last night I was invited to a VIP opening at Indique Boutique. A friend was modeling the virgin hair extensions; she looked fab! The boutique is the fifth in the franchise, but first in Philadelphia. The salon manager told me Indique is opening another location next week in Atlanta. I was drawn to the company when word spread Lady GaGa and Beyonce are fans (who doesn’t love their hair?!). Here are some shots from the night as well as my outfit.
