I’ve been a fan of Rebecca Minkoff‘s new styles lately and was super excited to attend her special opening night. There were a huge crowd of bloggers at the event and it was really great to meet a lot of the gals I had been chatting with via social media in person. The event was jam packed with just enough breathing room to check out the new spring line.
Despite the crowd, I was able to get a quick convo with Rebecca Minkoff. She was a very sweet and down to earth person. Considering her high profile status in the fashion industry, I was surprised by how personal she was with everyone. We chatted about how much she loves California and I loved the fact that she’s still a surfer beach gal at heart.
After the big rush died down a bit at the party, I had some time to grab a few pieces of clothes to try on for the contest. I didn’t really think too much of it, but I decided to choose some pieces in her spring line that reminded me of my recent trips to the coast of France and Greece. I even had a gold cuff that I wore that night to match. I threw the outfit on and showed off my shoulders as if I were about to go to the beach and took my contest pic.
Lo and behold, I actually won!!! I was so shocked since I never win anything, but was so happy they decided to choose my beachy look. I can’t wait to go on my shopping spree for $500!
