Last Thursday evening I attended a styling event Hosted by Saks off 5th and by invitation only for the Kansas City Area bloggers. The store is located in the Legends Shopping here in Kansas City. It was to date the hottest day of the year and let me tell you I thought I was melting just going from the car to the store. Anyway, The event was from 6-8 and a few blogger friends and I planned on an impromptu meet up and hit a few other stores before the event began.
This fountain looked so inviting I wanted to sit in it. We even joked about bringing rafts to float in the fountain. I'm not thinking girls in soggy clothes and wet hair is a good look for Saks! It is a big attraction for the kids to enjoy when their moms drag them shopping with them.
In case you ever wondered what it looks like behind the scenes of a outfit post.... here you go! That would be Meggy, of Chasing Davies taking pictures of Kristina of Simply Bold Blog, while Sandy, of Sandy A La Mode an Shea of Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique look on. And of course I am behind this camera taking pics of everyone else!!
Here is our fun group of Kansas City Bloggers that attended the event.
Some of the sweet treats provided by Moxie Catering for the event. Snickerdoodles and brownies. There was also finger foods, but the sweets were no surprise my favorite!
Notice the level of Sangria in comparison to the lemonade? Hmmmm just saying!
A representative from Saks off 5th was answering questions and informing us about the store. We each received a $25 gift card just for attending. They also gave away three more gift cards to some lucky bloggers in the amount of $50, $100, and $250!! No I didn't win, but Emmy, and Jeanne each won!Some bloggers that I have really gotten to know well! Emmy, Meggy, Kristina, Sandy, Me, and Shea.
All the pretty pedicures! And a few closed toes!
So you ask what did I purchase with my gift card? Well it was pretty much a no brainer, After searching the store over for the right thing to jump out at me, I ended up with a bracelet! No surprise there huh?! Its a bronze leather with snaps and double chains! Thanks Saks off 5th for a fun evening!All photos by Lisa
