Tonight. Good Party. Good Cause.
Thank God its Friday! For all The Inside Source readers in New York, here’s an event we recommend to come and support. For starters, it’s hosted by previous babes we’ve filed under “Mad Respect” — DJ Mia Moretti and Cleo Wade, with violinist extraordinaire, Margot. 
The creative women put their heads together recently and called all their friends and asked them one word… their favorite word, actually. Folks from Questlove to Katy Perry pitched in. Painter Cleo Wade masterminded painting interpretations of these words. The mission? 25 words. 25 paintings. 1 Goal. All proceeds of the artwork will go directly to 3villages1goal.org, supporting relief efforts in Philippines. 
Quick, clever, effective, and a rad party to attend tonight in New York. Friday, November 22nd, at No.8 located at 357 W. 16th St from 8-10pm. RSVP to ideason8.com

Mad Respect: Cleo Wade
Every time we see Cleo Wade out and about in New York, the creative spirit is dressed to the nines, sporting a wild mane of luscious hair. Having served as a muse and style director at alice + olivia for several years, Cleo is now following her heart’s desire and picked up a paintbrush. Since then, she’s been painting non-stop (you can see her work here). Miss Wade is now preparing for an exhibit in her native New Orleans, and completing a children’s book to lend more fairy energy to the li’l ones. The Inside Source loves any gal who can follow her gut instincts, and for that we have mad respect! 
Jauretsi: What is your manifesto for life?
Cleo Wade: Wild women don’t have the blues. Ladies, keep yourself wild and you’ll stay young and free forever.
[MORE]
J: Tell us your top 3 list of items you fiend for when searching through eBay?
CW: (1) I’m a color fiend. I had a boyfriend that got me hooked on 1970s clothing again. I literally troll eBay for hours looking for pimped-out vintage jumpsuits and long dresses in crazy colors! (2) Vintage kid’s books and fairytales. (3) Old cameras and film.
J: Name your summer inspiration songs.
CW: “Summer of 93" by The Dolls. I basically just have every remix of that song on repeat in my apartment. "I Want to Be Where You Are" by The Jackson 5. "Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans" by Louis Armstrong.

Art Basel Garb: Cleo Wade & Mia Moretti
By Jauretsi
The Inside Source caught up with New York sweethearts Cleo Wade of Alice + Olivia and DJ maestro Mia Moretti who attended Art Basel 2012 to spin for Harper’s Bazaar, Scope’s kick-off party, Architectural Digest, and Galore Magazine. 
Cleo Wade, a stylist at heart, tells me she searches eBay for hard-to-find vintage. “I’m always searching for vintage kimonos” says the New Orleans-born lady. Here she’s rocking an Alice + Olivia dress with a vintage kimono. Coincidentally, Cleo is wearing a design by Mia, the “Mia Moretti for Pency” scarf with shoes by Alberta Ferretti. Mia wears… [MORE] the same designer top and pants — Joy Cioci. Mixed up with those Ferragamo shoes, Chanel cuff and vintage bag, and voila, you’ve got two foxy ladies hitting Art Basel in style. 
Cleo suggests you know your size and best designer before doing the online hunt. After that, hunting eBay is a cinch. “For example” she adds, “this Alice and Olivia dress I’m wearing in the picture, I’m always the same size in AO and the fit is always perfect so it makes online shopping way less stressful.” Her other search item is costume jewelry. “eBay is great for finding statement pieces that can take your going-out look to the next level.” Another eBay temptation of the style maven? “Finding old records and vintage furniture,” she says with an exclamation.
