Complimentary drinks, a swag bag, great hostess(es), a fab venue = AMAZEBALLS EVENT! Last night I attended a product preview cocktail party for a liquer called X-Rated Fusion hosted by blogger extraordinaire Necole Bitchie.
The liquer is a blend of French vodka and exotic fruits and just so happens to be uber delish. I’m apparently the only person who has never had it. Huge kudos to the event planner @YoDiddy. Guests were greeted at the door of super posh Fathom Creative Art Gallery with a cocktail.
My bloggerista, Lisa from The Ghetto Fashionista, and I worked the room once we got upstairs. The attendees were an attractive mix of socialites, fans of Necole, press, and I even met a Oncologist from Arizona. Go figure, huh?
I didn’t get a chance to speak to Necole for long at all. Just to say “Hi, my name is Ty … from @OhMyTy on Twitter .. GorgeousInGrey.com is my blog, can I get a pic with you?” – I swear I sounded retarded and please don’t ask me why I was so nervous (as if) but she was amazingly humble and replied, “No I don’t mind”. I got a cute silly vibe from her after we took about 2 or 3 pics … a few she made funny faces in. and a few I deleted. LOL.
WHAT NECOLE WORE: (PHOTOS BY THESEVENTHDISTRICT.COM)
I did ask her what she was wearing but I was SOOOOO unprepared and I didn’t write it down. So of course after a few glasses of X-Rated, I’ve forgotten. Did I mention it was blazing hot in this venue? So I was also distracted. But I met TheSeventhDistrict.com and in addition to snapping my pic she also got a few amazing images of Necole Bitchie.
WHAT I WORE:
I actually wore this LBD from Forever21 (shocker) to the Glam.com dinner during NYFW but I’m on a budget so I WILL be recycling a lot of my wardrobe. Plus, you can re work a LBD over and over.. at least in my mind anyways. My blazer is from Issac Mizrahi and it’s about 7 years old. AWESOME find from Target years ago. And it’s ok to be impressed I am still able to fit it, sort of! I found these amazing wedges (and by amazing I mean comfy) from a local boutique in Baltimore – Topaz Boutique.
I kept the accessories light by adding purple lace stockings (that you can barely see in the pics), a feather necklace from Forever21, and a bangle that I accidentally stole from my stylist friend. OH and of course I’m toting my fav sequins chain strap bag also from *drum roll* Forever21. #DJM
