picture-heavy post coming up! i’ll let the photos speak for themselves & try to keep the commentary short & sweet ^_^
when i first arrived at LF, chloe & our other “hostesses with the mostesses” invited us to peruse the store, pull items that we would love to try on & basically just generate our wishlist! the above items are what i totally craved…colorfully fun suede fringe bags, the steve madden x LF gorgeous blue suede wedge, ipad cases in fun bright colors & obviously, i loves me some spiky sam edelman shoes, so the new
deadly roza pump!
then, it came down to trying on some clothes…my favorite part! i totally picked this dress that is so *unlike* my style, yet i was immediately drawn to. it was a neoprene-style body con dress with these chiffon side hip panels & amazing padded shoulders. i loved the slimming effect of the black panels (although i could stand to lose a couple pounds if i really wanted to wear this in public O.O) & even though i would normally balk at the too-short miniskirt length, i felt more covered up with the sheer, yet fun & flirty fabric. if i hadn’t had my new year’s eve dress already picked out, this dress would definitely be in the “must have” category :)
chloe & her famous phrase “what??? i’m tweeting!” hahaha!
while still playing amongst all the gorgeous clothes & shoes, we also found time to customize our own santa hats… in other words, totally cover them with glitter!!! then we played the yankee swap game which if you’ve never played, it’s only mostly fun when there’s stealing! *of course* i was the mean one & stole sarah’s awesome mustache temporary tattoos away from her! but she got a super cool set of coffee mugs (which i brought)…so was all good ^_^ it was a great time hanging out with blogger friends (like cassie, amanda & chloe) & making new ones! thanks again LF for having us!
