Fashion Scoops: Colleague Day... Island To Island... Going Vintage...

HOT HOT HOT: Tuesday's 40-degree temps may not have been cause to break out the filmy frothy sundresses, but there was no use telling that to the crowd at the new Miguelina boutique in New York. "No one cares, everyone's been shopping like crazy," said designer Miguelina Gambaccini, who threw a festive cocktail party in honor of the opening of the West Village shop. Indeed, Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler, Astrid Munoz and Elizabeth Saltzman all appeared very happy wearing their bright and feminine frocks — even if they did have to pair them with leggings and tights.
