Party kids gathered at FatBaby to fête the opening of Travis Wayne's concept boutique CONVENT with DJ Michael Vincent Patrick and Beach Fossils. The revelers reminded us of our favorite nuns. And we have a lot of favorite nuns.-
Convent, on Stanton St. in the LES, opens today and sells pieces from the collections of Sally LaPointe, Shin, Costume Dept., and many more. The Mar Bar video installation at Fat Baby echoed the boutique's style aesthetic, as did the vodka bar, because vodka goes with everything.
And the partygoers? We weren't kidding when we said that we found them nunnish. They brought back sweet, sweet, communion-wine-flavored memories of our extensive childhood exposure to nun movies . . .
The mousy nun in Sister Act, who is secretly an undercover music freak, and when she finally rocks out with her big voice, the audience is like "Wooooah this movie is aMAZing, Now I want to be a nun" and then all the nuns have to elude the bad guys, and the audience is like, "This is so exciting!"
