Urban Outfitters Around The World Designer Showcase

Yesterday I attended a pretty cool event at Urban Outfitters in Soho. The store had a special Spring sneak preview event with a chance to meet the designers. In all there were 14 brands from all over the world. The clothes were simply amazing and will be available sometime in the next week or so. It was a great atmosphere of shopping, listening to great music and meeting the designers.
 My friend Lena and I had a great time.
I didn't come in wearing this hat. I picked it up and wore it throughout the store. I love it. I think its perfect for Spring and Summer.
My good friend and fellow fashionista Lena (Check her foot work!!!)
The DJ was great and so were the free Izze drinks and snacks! There was even a manicure station!

We were given these cute little passports to walk around, check out each designer and get a special stamp on our passport. After getting all of our stamps we got an awesome giftbag!

I am in love with the color and fabric of this skirt!

I also love these shorts by Sessun

Making sure I get my stamp for visiting this brand. Do you see these amazing platform sandals?!? These will be mine very very shortly! Brand: Market
Lena fell in love with the shoes Brand: Rodebjer and I fell for an amazing slouch blazer in a camel color from the same brand!

House of Dagmar was one of my favorite brands because it just had something for everyone! They had these white pants that were so chic. I want them as soon as they hit the shelves.
Loved these shorts. Brand: Wood Wood

After visiting all the stations we got our giftbags!

Then ofcourse we went shopping lol.

This necklace was not among the new designer pieces soon to be in for Spring but when I saw it I fell...hard. This necklace is pure ME! I have to have it. I'm going to get soon as I find some money lol.
 Isn't she lovely?

I'm starting to have Goodie Bag overload. I have so many giftbags I dont know what to do with them all. I'm glad Fashion Week is over. It was fun but goodness I am exhausted! I need to get some major sleep this weekend and catch up on doing some things for my blog that I learned at the IFB Conference. This was the funnest Fashion Week ever for me! I'm looking forward to Fashion Week in September, I'm just glad I will have plenty of time to recooperate. I've been so busy I missed The Game and Real Houswives of ATL. But dont worry I will be catching up on all the TV drama on Sunday :-)
