Lulu's Style Studio Report!!


So as I mentioned, I scored an RSVP to the Lulu's Style Studio event on Saturday! I don't go to too many any other fashion week events. So I was pretty excited, and couldn't wait all week to go.

I got to the doors right at 6, but there was still a wait to get in. When I finally walked in the magic gates, the space was huge, beautiful, and there were more sponsor tables than last year. There were also tables with people doing demonstrations, and even makeup touchups! So I set about my business going around to each table and collecting a healthy amount of swag.

It was super fun to go through all the stalls by myself, but it was also a pleasure to run into a few friends, as well as meet some new people! Maria from Little Tree was particularly sweet :)

The item I'm looking forward to using most is this hair chalk!! I've been reading about this trend, and it seems like a great way to color your hair without commitment. There may even be a blog review in the not-too distant future :) The same nice ladies who gave me the hair chalk sample also put a pretty feather in my hair.

I got to take some photos in front of the press wall!! I felt pretty confident in my outfit this year, even though I don't have a ton of clothes that are too "fashion-y" (last year I felt really underdressed.) So I decided just to go with an all black, casual-rocker chick look. Always appropriate.

Last but not least was the beautiful crochet dress that I was allowed to pick out- no pictures yet! I think might be perfect for Valentine's Day!


And now, for some non-glamorous details... just to keep it authentic. Drinking too much at the Lulu's party and feeling totally embarrassed about it the next day is practically a tradition at this point. So inevitable conclusion... the drinks were stronger than I realized, and by the end of the night I turned into a pumpkin. Boom, there it is. It had me feeling sad for most of yesterday, but! I also had a lot of fun! And in the end, there are worse things in the world than getting drunk at a party :P

    1. see, that next-morning sadness is usually the reason why i avoid drinking. i used to have a lot of fun in my heyday, but i feel like it's just not worth it anymore. but we're all human, so sometimes you just have one too many and... whoops!

    1. yes, i just got those boots from the recent modcloth sale!! i really love them, and have making me want to bring my look to a much edgier place. but of course, my closet is all full of cardigans. sigh anyway, the party was very chic. maybe too chic for me...

  7. Looks like an awesome party, and I love your outfit! My best friend is a hair dresser and she chalked my hair not long ago - purple and pink dip-dye all over! It was awesome fun, but I recommend that you wear dark colours when you do it, and possibly don't do your whole head like we did because it's incredibly messy stuff! Also, have a tonne of hairspray on hand because it helps to seal it in and stop it from going all over you and anything you touch haha. We didn't use enough hairspray and my back was bright purple, as was everything I went near for the rest of the afternoon!

    1. yes, i actually tried a very experimental round of chalking yesterday, and discovered how messy it was. i'm thinking of mixing it with some sort of hair product/ gel to keep it in place more!
