Forgive Me

Category: Media,My OutfitsEyeliah @ 11:45 am

Sorry for two outfit posts in a row but I simply could not wait to talk about the BCBGMAZAZRIA store reopening! I was invited by Fashion Magazine to attend and bring a plus one and I knew instantly I would bring fashion vixen Melody. I had never paid much attention to the label in the past so didn’t really know what to expect. As we walked up our pictures were taken on the red carpet and were handed a glass of wine before they even checked the list… glad I was on it!

P.S. These are NOT the shoes I wore, silly me took pictures in the flats I was running around getting ready in! I wore these heels. 🙂

The renovations were beautiful, as to be expected but I was more interested in the clothes. We went through EVERYTHING on the main floor, enjoyed the hors d’oeuvres and then went upstairs for all the evening dresses! Silly me I didn’t know we would be allowed to touch the clothes let alone try them on! We started picking dresses left and right, Mel doubled me with her stack and she even choose a runway dress or two! Since the event was covered by press guests were not supposed to take pictures, so we did it in the change rooms. 😉 The jade green dress was my absolute favorite, I was seriously considering it even at $250 but with no real place to wear it and synthetic fibers I opted out. The black jeweled stunner made of natural fibers, fit fantastically and had pockets was $430. I watched a statuesque lady purchase it for her Christmas party (you go girl!).

So after an hour and a half of that fun! We went downstairs, mingled a lil more and tried on some of their gorgeous cardigans and blouses. I am surprised we didn’t end up buying half the store, I guess we managed to keep our composure. We decided to leave on a high note, grabbed our lovely swag and took off into the night.

I took these pictures below when I got home as I needed a better photo of my purse! Three separate sales ladies were saying they ‘remember’ my dress, but this is not BCBG. I looked online but could not find a similar dress in BCBG. I do know that Jennifer Love Hewitt wore I think the same dress on her show.

New Silk Dress, True Value Vintage: $39. Bow Clutch, Thrifted: $5
Previously shown items: Fur Shrug, Winners. Ribbed Tights, The Bay. Heels, Aldo.
