I really love a brand that understands the world of brand influencers and their importance in marketing. Henri Bendel has been doing a big campaign showcasing some of today's most popular bloggers and fashion influencers. They made a big push for their hashtag #bendelgirl. And I was so honored to be able to partner @parisandalatte with them for a fun night of fashion last Thursday.
It was a fun night of fashion with some sips and sweets with some of my close family and friends, and of course, so many of my blogger babes I have met during my time here in the Twin Cities.
It was a room full of girls with a love for shiny things and beautiful bags, getting the perfect shot, and a love for supporting other #bossbabes. Everyone had a blast taking pics for their instastories, blinging it up as they sipped on champagne. We had a fun raffle for my guests that night that the lucky Alyssa Lesavage won. Congrats babe.
I also put together fun gift bags for all my guests - all of the sponsors were just so generous with everything. (Huge thank you to Orly, Kind, and all our sponsors for @parisandalatte.) We included the beautiful Minneapolis Scout Guides. Even Henri Bendel gave their gorgeous sunglass cases as part of my gift bag with the classy brown and white stripe that their are notoriously known for.
The best part of the night was that it was documented by the Twin Cities top photographer, Lindsay Marcus. She's just so talented and she's worked with some of the girls before so there was definitely a comfortability with her. Although, even if you haven't met her before, she just has a sweet aura that is anything but intimidating. Yet she takes these amazing power shots. I'm so glad she was there because she captured the night perfectly. So if you're local, definitely check her out. Her work is amazing. You can check her website out here .
Here are moments from the evening. I can't thank you all enough for this memorable night. And huge thank you to Matthew, Abdi, and the Henri Bendel team at the Mall of America for making it a great night.
