I know it’s been a month since NYFW but I still have pictures to share! I’d been saving this red dress for the right occasion and I decided that the rewardStyle NYFW party would be the perfect place to wear it.
While I was there, I was reunited with blogger friends Lydia and Meg, who I hadn’t seen since I moved from Connecticut to New York. It was so great to catch up with them at the party! And get this- I also ran into a friend who I hadn’t seen since high school. At first I thought there was no way it could be her, since as far as I knew she was not a fashion blogger, but it turns out she has her own photography business and came to New York as the photographer for B. Jones Style. It was definitely one of those moments where you think, “What a small world!”
I was so excited to have the opportunity to attend a preview event for the Kensie Jewelry 2013 collection last Friday! I headed straight from work to the event and when I arrived I was immediately delighted by the decor in their showroom. The decorations were pretty and whimsical and in the center of the room there was a huge table full of sweet treats, including my fave mini cupcakes from Baked by Melissa and macarons.
On top of the lovely decorations, the jewelry on display all around the room was so pretty! There are so many pieces that I would happily wear. It was hard to pick favorites, but if I had to I would choose the fantastic black fringe necklace (first picture) or the necklace with spikes and chevron cutouts (below).
Before we headed home, we were allowed to choose one piece of Kensie clothing and also grab a gift bag with several Kensie jewelry pieces. As if things weren’t already good enough, I won one of the door prizes and received even more jewelry to take home! I had a great time hanging with The NY Collective and I’m not going to tell you how many cupcakes I devoured at the event (it was more than five :O). Thanks so much to Kensie for hosting such a fun preview!
I was so excited when I heard that Lulu’s was hosting their Style Studio event this season! It was so much fun last year and I couldn’t wait to have a mini-reunion with some of my blogger friends.
The event was held in a different venue this year and I think it was even better than last time! When we first walked in, we checked in at the front table where we received a cute tote that says “Lulu’s Style Studio.” All around the room, there were tables set up by the sponsors. We went around to each table to learn more about the products featured and we were allowed to take samples too.
There were also stations where you could get different beauty treatments. For example, you could get your makeup done at the Nyx Comestics table, you could get feather extensions at the Fine Featherheads table and you could get your nails done at the Jamberry Nails table. We also had the opportunity to “be the buyer” for the Lulu’s website. They had some sample clothes on display and you could take a quick survey to mark if you loved the item or how you would change it if you didn’t quite love it.
Tasty cocktails were provided all night by Hpnotiq- my favorite was the Blue Bombshell!
At the beginning of the night we were given a little Style Studio map that was designed to lead you to your style profile. The five styles featured were Edgy, Uptown Prep, Bombshell, Sweetheart, and Bohemian (I think I landed somewhere between Uptown Prep and Sweetheart). When it was your turn to go upstairs, you were allowed to choose any item you wanted to take home with you! I tried to keep my closet resolutions in mind and pick a more classic piece that I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of; I ended up with this pretty little striped dress.
Lulu’s Style Studio is always a blast- I’m already looking forward to next year. Thank you again to Lulu’s for a fantastic event and see below for a full list of the night’s sponsors!

Last week, Alex invited me and other members of The Bloggers’ Collective to a special holiday event for Amy O. Jewelry and I had such a lovely time. I could tell that the Amy O. team had put a lot of thought into the event and there were so many delicious beverages and refreshments (including some cookies that I could not put down). Even more impressive though was the jewelry on display all around the room. There were so many gorgeous pieces- it was really hard not to buy everything up! I tried on some stunning necklaces and fell in love with one in particular (the one in the middle row, on the left, above), along with the daintiest little bow knuckle ring.
It was really cool to be able to peruse the jewelry at this private event and it was also nice to meet the other members of the Amy O. team, Gina and Janice, who were both very sweet. I also got to catch up with my TBC ladies, which is always a good time! Many thanks to Alex for organizing such a fun event for us and I can’t wait for more holiday parties!
