Austin, mark your calendars
There are a slew of events coming up in Austin for all your style lovers and shoppers. I'd love to see your smiling face at these events:
I love Madewell and I grew up wearing Keds. Tonight come check out this match made in sneaker heaven. Those floral ones just speak to my inner Sharon Cherski. RSVP: http://facebook.com/madewell
Have you shopped at Cusp, yet? I spent an inordinate amount of time fantasy shopping on Cusp.com last week, anticipating the newly launched Cusp (contemporary) department of Neiman Marcus at The Domain this coming Wednesday. They carry some of my favorite brands, like Alice + Olivia, Splendid, and Marc Jacobs. Come out Wednesday night for the big reveal. RSVP: 512.710.1213 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following three events are part of the Texas Style Council March Mixers that I'm organizing:
Cocktails, Sales, and Nails! Langford Market will be offering $50 off $100 purchases, too. Nails Y'all will be showing attendees how to do ombre nails and glitter tips. This is open to female bloggers and Adored Austin readers. [RSVP]
Saturday is our big Texas Style Council mixer event. I am thrilled to be doing it at The Domain this year (away from the madness of downtown, where parking will still be plentiful). We'll be giving each registered attendee a "Shopping Passport" which will have incentives like 30% LOFT. For every purchase made at participating stores, shoppers will get a stamp on their passport. For every stamp earned, shoppers will be entered to win an amazing prize package that includes clothes, jewelry, and a bag! Trust me, you want this.
This event is open to the public. This would be an amazing girls day out! Pick up passports at LOFT from noon- 2pm. Meet me at Neiman Marcus (in the Cusp department) from 3-5pm to learn more about our big conference/ business school/ craft camp in August. We'll shop hop from 5pm - close, wrapping the night up at Madewell where passports can be turned in and prizes can be picked up. You don't have to be a blogger to come to this. [RSVP]
Kollabora.com is a great resource. I've bookmarked like 100 tutorials on sewing and jewelry making and plan to upload a couple tutorials of my own. We're going to meet up at Stella Says Go (Austin most beloved shoe store) and make some cute bangles as part of the Kollabora Craft Camp. Modcloth will be there with a live "Name That Dress" contest, and Valerie, Megan, Linda, and Kirsten will be on hand to show you how to make bracelets and to talk blog shop with you. Open to bloggers, blog readers, and crafty-types. [RSVP]
Bonus event for SXSW badge holders: StyleCaster/ Neiman Marcus Cusp party on Monday, March 11th from 8-11 pm.
