MAGIC TRADE-SHOW: DAY 2-3
Wrapping up my stay in Vegas, the second night was the night of events! My fellow bloggers and I were invited to the VIGOSS USA booth to preview their S/S 2013 collection and hang around for a late afternoon cocktail reception. We then had the priviledge of attending an AllSaints Preview party at The Cosmo Hotel, which was graciously catered by the ultra trendy restaurant STK… I was lucky enough to get the full cuisine experience where I later met up with my friends and colleagues from VIGOSS to have dinner at STK. Appetizers, on appetizers on appetizers anyone? Probably the best and cutest entrees I have had!
The third and final day was made up of panels, visiting with brands and roaming around the show to see and meet with brands for the last time of the season. I participated in another social media panel discussing the pros and cons of various platforms and which are more advantageous in certain circumstances for certain brands (like the lovelies at the cute and colorful Gypsy Junkies booth!). I then found myself lingering towards FN Platform (Hi my name is Rachel and I’m addicted to shoes) and did one last go-around of the show - as you can see above.
The last afternoon was spent reminiscing on our Vegas adventures and (excitedly) talking about our next endeavors and overall hopes for the future. You were good to me Vegas, you were good.
MAGIC OUTFIT DIARY: DAY 1
A closer look at what I wore on the first official day of covering MAGIC. I found this little number (and by that I mean ze dress) at the Buffalo Exchange in Albuquerque along with dozens of other treasures throughout my southwest adventure. I felt inclined to use the belt in a new way. Maybe it was my inner DIY girl coming out, but I opted to tie it around my beloved Panama hat, in hopes that it would fulfill my craving to look sharp and feel chic. I’ve developed a deep affinity towards matching separates whether it be blazers and skirts or pajama pants and tops, I definitely see myself leaning towards heavy prints and classically cut clothing come fall. And now that I think about it, coupling this with my leather Austin Tote (c/o of my contacts at MAGIC!), autumnal tones were really present in this look. I guess this was my way of sporting my fall desires… in the desert. Who knew?
