Sunday evening was the private shopping event I hosted at LOFT. I was really excited about the opportunity, and as the date approached I became even more excited to meet everyone that was coming!
I spent about 3 hours in the store the day before picking out outfits for 12 dress-forms. It was funny to see what I'm naturally drawn to. There were plenty of outfits that were simply jeans and a blouse. I forced myself to think outside the box, and mix up patterns and colors for a fresh look.
The dress-forms were placed all around the store during the evening of the event. We enjoyed amazing cupcakes from Daisy Cakes bakery*, and I watched as women carried piles of clothing back to the fitting room.
There's something about a private event that allows you to open your mind up a little bit and see the store more clearly. Besides the obvious fact that there are less people in the store, I think it has to do with knowing you have a certain amount of time to browse, and personalized attention if you needed something.
The day prior, when I was styling the dress-forms, I also took an armful of clothes back to the fitting room for myself. I sifted through some great pieces, and found a few things that I know will be some essentials this spring.
This was what I wore to the event : (all items from LOFT except for the shoes)
I also picked up this jade/turquoise tie-neck blouse.
To those who came, thank you for coming! It was great to meet you and I'd love to see you again at another one of these events!
