Whenever I see bloggers attending fun events and doing fabulous things, I get mildly jealous. Why can't I be oh so fabulous like that?
I get especially envious during Fashion Week. Living and working right in the heart of NYC, I'm constantly surrounded by Fashion Week. A few of my friends who work in magazines even got to attend some actual shows... so yeah, I've always wanted to get my foot in the door.
Well, thanks to Her Campus & Rakuten Marketing, I got a little taste and now I'm addicted.
I attended a #NYFW event that Rakuten Affiliate Marketing was hosting with a bunch of fun brands, such as Kate Spade, Lord & Taylor, Peter Thomas Roth, and a lot of others! I decided to RVSP and go after work yesterday.
It was hosted at Ramscale Studios in Greenwich Village and it was gorgeous! The view from the event was to die for ... it really doesn't get better than this, does it?
I met up with a few ladies from Her Campus -- hi Aly & Nicole, and we lingered and mingled around the event.
There were drinks, food, raffles, and a bunch of brands set up throughout the room. There was some fall fashion from Lord & Taylor (which I decided I wanted EVERYTHING), shoes from Kate Spade, and some other fun little items. A lot of these were up for raffles but I unfortunately didn't stay for the entire event so I didn't participate in the raffle.
I chatted with some Rakuten representatives, along with some other bloggers and it was just nice to be in that atmosphere. I really enjoyed it and it was a lot of fun -- and going out after work wasn't even that bad! Now that I know what it's like, I think it may be happening more often!
One of the best parts of blogging events? Goodie, swag bags! The lovely brands who participated in the event were kind enough to give the first 60 bloggers goodie bags!
Some jewelry from Liquidation Channel, a watch from Folli Follie, a $50 Shoptiques gift card, and a Elemis Home Spa conditioning milk bath.
All of these things look amazing and I can't wait to incorporate them into my fall wardrobe (and use the bath milk on a cool, fall day).
This was a really great start to dipping my feet into the water of blogger events and I'm excited to see what else is in store!
