Definitely one of my favorite jobs is when I get to assist with styling runway shows.  These photos are from the Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom Fashion Valley.  This event is particularly fun because we get to go a little wild with print on print action and lots of bold colors.  The hardest part of the job is trying to not come home with every single thing (and the 6am call time)!  I’ve provided links for some of the items under the photos for your shopping pleasure!

‘Tis The Season Holiday Shopping Event

I loved all these great Kiehl's gift sets!

For as long as I’ve been in San Diego, I’ve never had the opportunity to visit The University Club, a members-only club at the Symphony Towers in downtown.  So when the invitation came along for me to attend their ‘Tis The Season Shopping event, I jumped at it!  We got to sip champagne and browse vendor booths from Fashion Valley Mall.  The view of downtown from the club is beautiful.  I was there after dark but I would imagine it’s a stunning place for sunset cocktails.  It was a perfect way to get my holiday spirit sparked and get some gift ideas.  I was particularly tempted by some gorgeous Chanel sunglasses but refrained.  Can’t let the champagne do my spending!  😉

 

These boots can be worn as booties or just trap on a top piece to wear them as knee high boots!  Genius!

These boots can convert from booties to knee highs! Genius!
