(Warning: Image overload! Full set of photos for the event can be found over at my Flickr!)
So here I am, walking out of the train station, cupcakes in hand and about to meet people i've never met. All I could feel were jitters, and was all sorts of nervous. What would I talk about? These are people i've only seen through images and words, yet here I was walking through Central Park with freshly made cupcakes. However, as soon as I spotted the red balloons and a couple of familiar faces, I became excited!
The first girls I saw were Rebecca from The Clothes Horse and Erin from Calivintage! They were so welcoming and easy to talk to, making the experience less awkward than I thought it would be.
Soon afterwards I met these two amazing people, Jacob (how much do you love his sequin blazer?!) and Adeline (who came all the way from Norway!) from Lady Croissant. Seriously, they were too funny for words and I absolutely loved them!
It was so exciting to see more familiar faces showing up! I probably sounded like a broken record, because I couldn't stop saying how surreal this whole experience was. At one point somebody said that were all like moving pictures (I think it may have been Tieka or Rebecca? I am probably completely wrong haha).
I loved Tieka from Selective Potential! She was too funny and such a sweet girl! Pretty much everything I expected her to be from reading her page for so long haha. I am so happy that I got a chance to chat with her, such a sweetheart!
(I have the best out takes of our jumping picture! I loveee doing jumping pictures, even though I probably flashed all my goodies to the world in that dress!)
I got to see these two fashionable ladies, Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky and Annie from Time Enough for Drums, I wish I got to talk to them a bit more, but they were such sweet girls!
Oh and I got to meet Nicole of Coco Maria from my neck of the woods! it was like everything went in slow motion when I heard somebody mention an area I lived nearby haha.
Oh and here's what I wore, whilst I damn near flashed my goods to the world...again haha
(Cropped Blazer - UO, Dress - Thrifted, Belt - Thrifted, Flats - Primark)
(A big thank you to Emily from It Girl, Rag Doll for my outfit shots and some of the other photos!)
Overall, it was such an amazing experience and I am so glad that it was set-up! It was such a bummer to go from a great afternoon to serving coffee, and boy did we feel the rush of Fashion Night Out! My store is right by one of the shopping districts and some stores had DJ's and lines that would make your mother a bit dizzy!
Hope everyone is having an awesome fashion week!
