HerCampus College Fashion Week

unnamed-6unnamed-4unnamedunnamed-2img_9580

As you know, this Saturday was HerCampus’ College Fashion Week fashion show and leading up to the event I was most excited to connect with other Boston bloggers. It began at 6pm at Space 57 at The Revere Hotel. Bloggers were able to go in before the crowd, but I decided to get there by 5:30pm just so I had time to get settled. When  I arrived, there was a line wrapped around the building–I couldn’t believe it! I was greeted by the HerCampus team and received two incredible goodie bags along with some additional information about the event AND a drink ticket ;). I scoped out the candy bar and drooled over the adorable cupcakes, courtesy of Whipped. After mingling with the other bloggers, I found my way to the runway to scope out my seat. There, the European Wax Center was offering brow styling and Bertha Watches and Maidenform shared items from their latest collections. It was fun to learn about brands that I wasn’t very familiar with and it even sparked some inspiration for my blog (stay tuned!). As we filed into our seats to watch the first of four scenes, I chatted with some bloggers about how they got their start in blogging and we even shared some tips we’ve learned along the way.

The show consisted of four scenes with 20-minute breaks in between each one so there was time to take advantage of the sweet treats and step and repeat. The models were amazing and so charismatic, which made the show enjoyable to watch. I especially loved the Bow and Drape scene; it’s one of my favorites and it was fun to read the cute sequined sayings. All scenes were amazing and I was so happy to lend my support to my fellow fashionistas. It was a feel-good night and was what fashion should be about: self-love and expression.

OH and I didn’t check out my goodie bag until I got home and I was ECSTATIC to find: a blowout c/o The Drybar (can you say AMAZING!), a Flex 2 Fitbit (I guess I should start working out now), an adorable Rebecca Minkoff bag (in an on-trend yellow for the the fall months), Lacoste perfume c/o Perfumania (smells like heaven!),  Bertha Watches coupon, Hanes tights (who doesn’t need reliable tights?), and a European Wax Center gift card and body lotions (hello flawless brows!). I felt so honored to be a part of a beautiful night supporting the young fashionistas of Boston and these amazing gifts were just icing on the cake. I hope to have the opportunity to attend next year and can’t wait to hear about the next show in NYC!
