So the girls and I attended a new store opening/fashion show last week and it was more than amazing to say the least. The store Bevello, is located right in the heart of Towne Center within walking distance of two of my favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory and PF Changs. They were showcasing their new line of summer/fall fashions and also celebrating the opening of their gorgeous new store.
(SIDENOTE: Visit IFB's 'I Love My Neighborhood' segment to see what other cool places and events your favorite bloggers have visited and become inspired by this week)
The owner was soooo cute and even offered us 20% off of EVERYTHING in the store to thank us for celebrating with her. While linking up with IFB's Project they asked us to tell why this specific place that we visited has brought us inspiration. You see this cute girl here:
She's young, fun, and doing what she loves. She's the owner of a beautiful boutique in an even more beautiful location. She inspires me to keep going after my dreams and do what I love to do. Life is too short to be stuck doing things that you hate. This is how people become miserable and eventually turn out to be evil little old people. You know the ones who sit in the rocking chair giving you the mean grimace every time you visit; the ones who never have anything nice to say. Yeah, those are the ones who hate their lives because they grew up either working at jobs that they despised or because they continued to stay in a horrible relationship and now they're stuck with an evil little old man that constantly hides their denture glue.
Do what makes YOU happy! Because at the end of the day, no one has to deal with you but YOU!
What types of things make you happy?
It was a little hard for me to capture all of my fave runway looks because there was a huge mass of a man standing in front of me. Each time I moved he swayed right along with me and managed to appear as a big blob of fabric in almost all of my runway shots. Ugghhh, why was he there...in my way and on my nerves!!!
I did get these though.
That coral dress was SUPER SEXY!!! But this is the dress that I had my eye on....
With a price tag of $128, even 20% off would be a stretch for me considering my obsessive need to be thrifty. I just admired it from afar all night long. All in all, the event was great. There was free food catered by California Pizza Kitchen and even better....free champagne of which I had at least 4 glasses. Annnnndddd it was mixed with a splash of watermelon juice. Talk about tasty!
Oh how I wish I had more pics of the actual event to share with you. Oh well.
Here's what I wore:
A slight mix of lace and floral. See how everyone else is mixing their patterns here.
I love these trousers. Even though they are polyester and hot as all get out, I love the fact that they are high waisted and they stop right at my ankle so as to create a clean, classic look and showcase whatever shoe that they're worn with.
The shoes (which are barely visible here) are sky high nude platform stilettos that I got on clearance at Target. I had been eyeing these babies forever. I've seen many of my favorite bloggers with them but I just couldn't bring myself to pay full price for them. Soooo, I waited and voila....
Don't we look shopped out! My girlfriend purchased that super sexy coral dress pictured above. I, on the other hand, purchased nada. I just held her bag for visual effect-because I thought it would look more uniform if all of us held bags. I'm such a cheater!!
What do you and your girlfriends do for fun?
