FAll FashIN Preview Event

After work last night, I rushed home to change out of my gym attire and into something a little more stylish.

Fall FashIN

I was invited to attend the Fall FashIN Preview event as and Indianapolis blogger which featured Dottie Couture, Handbag Heaven, Sunglasswarehouse.com, and Scarves Dot Net.

As I walked through the doors of the event, I was greeted by several kind, trendy, and outgoing girls.  They took me straight back to the event space and the first thing that they showed me was the area where we could shop!

Because this was a “preview” event, we were able to purchase products that have not even made it to these online shops yet…AND we got a discount!

After eyeing several maxi dresses, purses, and accessories I ended up purchasing this scarf that is absolutely one of the softest things I have ever owned.  It is a light blush/tan color and is made of a t-shirt material.  It is SUPER long, but not bulky at all so it is perfect for bunching up and wearing in the fall.  I can’t wait!

After we shopped around for a bit, we all grabbed a bite to eat and listened to Janneane of Pattern Indy Magazine talk about fashion and technology.  Because of technology, fashion and trends are accessible to anyone anywhere.  She discussed how blogging is a fun thing, but it can also be profitable because it allows the author/business owner to represent and create a lifestyle, a trend, and a brand.

Needless to say, she was very inspiring!

After Janneane’s presentation, we had a checklist of tasks to accomplish.  Of course one of the stations was shopping, but they also had several other fun things to participate in as well!

There was a handbag naming contest….

This black and ivory purse was the little gem I was holding out for, but unfortunately my name wasn’t picked.  I guess I don’t have a future in product naming!

They provided surveys for us to fill out regarding our personal style and fashion.

This event even had a DIY sunglass station.

At first, I was a little overwhelmed by all of the decoration and sunglass options, but I eventually just decided to keep it simple.

I spent the evening chatting with the other ladies and learning about their blogs…and we had some time to play dress up and take pictures too :)

The night ended by satisfying my sweet tooth with a candy bar.

And we also got swag bags to take with us!

It was such a fun “ladies night out!”  I was able to meet great women, and I was introduced to amazing boutiques.  I can’t thank One Click Ventures enough for inviting me to this amazing event.

Question of the Day:

  • What fall accessory are you excited to pull out of your closet?

For me?  Boots and scarves!!

  1. I love my leggings – oh wait, I wear them year round! I don’t think it is an accessory but I love waking up, putting on a hooded sweatshirt, and enjoyed a warm drink on our deck :)
