Sunday, I hosted my first styling event at the Limited and I must say, it was a “HUGE” success largely due to my family, friends, followers and co-workers who all came to support me. It was so much fun!!!
When the Limited offered me the opportunity to host a styling event in there store, I could not turn it down. They say a journey starts with a single step. In knowing that to be true, I took that first step and I am truly proud of myself for that leap of faith.
The Limited team provided my attendees with refreshments, in store promotions, and a chance to enter into a drawing to win a $100 gift card. I was able to consult with each attendee in giving body shape tips and trends along with styling each person with The Limited latest stylish collection. What made the styling portion of this event fun, is letting all my attendees pick out 1 piece that they like in the store, when they pick out their favorite piece they would bring that 1 piece to me so that I can complete their entire look. Once I complete their look, I would have each of my ladies try on their outfits. Some of them enjoyed their looks and bought their entire piece while others wanted to pose for the camera for a picture, lol.
Overall, this was an exciting opportunity for me to challenge myself to see how would people rate my styling skills. It was a bit challenging but I learned so much about my attendees body shape, what they can and cannot wear, and what they do and do not like to wear. I am so used to styling myself all the time. Its a whole other task styling someone else. But I was surprised and happy to hear positive feedback about my styling skills.
I gained friendships with the Limited store manager and several sales associates. I want to give every single one of them a HUGE THANK YOU for allowing me feature their store on my blog. There latest fall collection will be posted under my Digital PA tab soon so stay tuned.
Close to the end of the event, the Limited gave me a $200 gift card for having a minimum of 15-20 ladies show up. I jumped up with joy when they told me that surprise. For those of you that know me, DO know that I LOOOOOVE to shop!!! So what did Trendy Tab buy? Well let me let the captions and the pictures do all the explaining.
