This past Sunday I attended the TwoPointOhLA Snowball that was held at the beautiful Palihouse in West Hollywood. Sporting my sexy tan from Chocolate Sun, my dazzling Sole Society silver stilettos and my Lulu*s dress, I felt like a million dollars. My extraordinarily handsome boyfriend came with me (such a good sport) and was the perfect arm candy!
At the event, there was a gifting suite being held which allowed me to take home some pretty nifty things! The sponsors this year were truly…perfection.
Lulu*s.com was probably the sponsor I was most excited to see, after all I was wearing their dress! They also had a Wheel of All Things Amazing (as I call it) where each person spun and received a surprised! I won an item off their rack of glittery, silky, and chiffon pieces and my boyfriend won a %40 off card! This just made my Christmas even better!
It was truly a magical night!
What I wore ( It’s an outfit post & event post in one today!):
I wore my navy dress from Lulu*s.com because I love it more than words can say. I originally bought it for my graduation, but due to wearing a cap and gown, the dress never got to be in the spotlight like it deserved to be. The most awesome part about this dress is that it is reversible. The sexy back can be a sexy front…and wow…it was sexy. I opted to wear it “sexy back” style in order keep my look toned down. I put on my new silver bow heels, some funky jewels, and my sequined clutch.
First let me say that I am so grateful to be a member of Two Point Oh! LA. This community created by Kelsi Smith, is filled with inspiring bloggers within the Los Angeles area. The events thatTwoPointOhLA create are one-a-kind and an excellent way to network and explore new concepts of fashion and the fashion world.
Thank you to my awesome boyfriend for coming and taking all the pictures.
I met some incredible new people as well as re-connected with some bloggers who I had met at a previous TwoPointOhLA event a few weeks back.
I was pretty unsure of what to wear, and after rummaging through my closet like a fashionista maniac, I remember I had bought a dress specifically for a Turkish-American Ladies League event. The event I was supposed to wear it to got cancelled, so I finally jumped on the chance to rock that frock!
Here’s a funny, and awkward side story:
When I first arrived, I didn’t see any signs of an event. Also, I was invited to a different event, which I declined but never really read WHERE the event was being held in the first place. As I stood by the entrance to the hotel, I hear some ask me “Party nerede?” which is “where’s the party?” in Turkish. Being Turkish, I understood. I replied it was inside. I wondered why she KNEW I was Turkish, and just assumed she followed my blog and had one too.
I walk into the hotel and go to the general bar area by the pool which was filled with people. I heard excitement, laughing, talking, and TURKISH! I had stumbled into the wrong event, the event I had declined to attend, which was a Turkish-American Networking event for those living in Los Angeles….awkward.
All of a sudden, a plethora of people start saying my name and coming up to me. I look at them flabbergasted, “Where am I?”. I see my parent’s friends and I know…this is NOT the TwoPointOhLA pre-fashion week party.
I say some hello’s, answer “Where are your parents?” about five times, and excuse myself.
I must find fashionistas!
I scurry along to the hotel reception and tell them of the party I came here to attend. Apparently, I had to pass the pool par, go through a gate and it was in a subset of the pool bar, a private bar called Rick’s Place. I worked out my red soled shoes and bolted to the event and alas…I see glitz, glamour, and inspiration- my fellow bloggers!
