(Disclaimer: This is my first non-beauty post here!) I probably have like 100 pairs of earrings and tons of long lariette necklaces and chokers (my hubby even bought me a jewelry organizer because it was all over the place!). I'm a big accessories girl because I find that I can really dress up a simple outfit with beautiful jewelry. Naturally, I was thrilled when I got invited to view some pieces from the new Sara Blaine for Willow House collection!
Sarah Shah, image expert, author and speaker, was a great host to all the bloggers at Avalon Diner (thank you to Bambi Lynn for hosting us as well! We're still savoring the cookies n' cream milkshake) that day as she explained we were up for a jewelry styling challenge. All the jewelry that was beautifully displayed was for us to choose from and style the models in different ways (I got to take my little sister as a model. What can I say? She's the gorgeous one!) Suzanne Joffrion, representative of the Sara Blaine for Willow House brand in Texas warmly welcomed us to discover the brand.
My gorgeous sister, Natalie
Their cuffs are to-die-for! I love to wear one bold statement piece of jewelry every time I go out and these cuffs fit the bill.
This classy and modern look for girls night was my favorite of the ones I created that evening (I love the detail on the cross choker necklace and the stacked bangles) and this cuff was my favorite piece of jewelry that day.
I met some fabulous bloggers that day, like 12 year-old fashion blogger Taylor McClure from Somewhere Over the Runway and Renae Virata from Wearever the Weather (she was also a contestant on The Bachelor-like TV show from NBC Ready for Love ), Sara Gerlich from Sarah to Nine, Shana Wang from Hautess and I also caught up with friend Shasie, President of Houston Fashion Bloggers and author of Live Life in Style (follow her to every single event in Houston on her instagram @livelifeinstyle) and of course, visit her blog!
Our swag bags were a beauty junkie's dream and to my luck I won a raffle prize at the end of the evening. It was a book by our own hostess, Sarah,"Dress Yourself Skinny," which is a guide to looking slimmer by dressing smarter!Click here for a full album of the Sara Blaine for Willowhouse event.
