MinkPink x Christina Perri

3rd March 2014

Last week I was lucky enough to attend Atlantic Record’s private party and mini concert in celebration of singer, songwriter and overall superstar Christina Perri and her new album Heart or Head!
I’ll be honest, mainstream music has never really been my thing. I mean, my morning commute couldn’t be made possible without Burno Marz, I dance alone in my room to One Direction almost daily and cure shopping coma’s by laying on the floor listening to Amy Winehouse on vinyl… but everything else on my playlists is from at least 10 years ago. I basically jam to what pandora spits out (which is usually pretty amazing, thanks Pandora) and concerts we’re never really my thing…. well that all changed when I saw MinkPink’s new Brand Ambassador belt her lungs out ten feet in front of me. Christina Perri changed the game when I heard her play at Bar Nana in Meatpacking, and converted me into an instant fan, All hail Christina Perri!

You may know Christina for her recent mega-hit “A Thousand Years” as featured in the Twilight Saga, but she first came on the scene in 2010 when the unsigned singer’s song “Jar of Hearts” was featured on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. This break-up ballad quickly skyrocketed to the top of the charts and presto, instant fame. But then came the pressure when Christina had to live up to the hype. This talented diva did so and then some, cranking out her first album in thirty days. Her amazing second album, Head or Heart (which she previewed at the event) is available April 1st!
I stacked two of my new favorite necklaces from my current jewelry obsession, Jennifer Rex via etsy. Shop the clover here or the Initial necklace here
MinkPink is an effortlessly edgy brand that combines girly quirk with just a pinch of sass! They couldn’t pick a more perfect Brand Ambassador to help launch their spring collection. Christina Perri is the ultimate MinkPink girl: flirty, fearless and fabulous with a little bit of spunk! They sell MinkPink at pretty much everywhere that matters like Nordies, Modcloth (my fav), ShopBop (another fav), Revolve Clothing, Asos, Urban and more. But I had picked some of my current MinkPink Favs!

Big thanks to Mink Pink & Bar Nana for hosting,

1128nyc for snapping these pics and Christina Perri for being a modern music goddess! What do you think about the MinkPink X Christina Perri collab? Is match made in heaven or what!?
