An evening with 9W, InStyle, & Cusp by Neiman Marcus

Last Thursday (3/20) I had the opportunity to attend two fashion events at the Houston Galleria. The first event I attended was at Nine West to celebrate their first editor-designed partnership with InStyle magazine. The limited edition collection ranges from handbags and jewelry to shoes that represent the style of editors at InStyle and accessory experts from Nine West. Look below to see some photos from the event as well as some product displays of the super cute Spring collection!

Luckily, I was able to go to the event with a good girlfriend of mine, Yesenia. She's also a local Houston blogger and has been my go-to mentor with my blogging journey! Check out her one-of-a-kind blog here. 

The best part of the night was getting the opportunity to meet the iconic Leah Karp, InStyle Magazine's Accessories Editor. Upon introduction, she was immediately so down-to-earth, I just loved her! She was able to offer Yesenia and I some advice on being career-driven women and told us a little bit about her own journey to InStyle. It was such an honor to meet a woman who is making strides for other women in the working world - she is a creative power house and I just love what she has done with Nine West. I am so excited to continue following her in the media world. Leah was able to spend a few minutes giving us some very wise advice. She said that following your dream job is all about who you know, the effort you put into building relationships and how important it is to be a woman of integrity in a world where honesty is so hard to come by.

After we left the 9W InStyle event, we wandered down to Neiman Marcus for the Cusp Event.  Unfortunately, we were a little late and missed the actual fashion show but the ladies working the Napoleon Perdis counter were kind enough to give us quick makeovers and provided us with adorable gift bags. I received a precious Joie t-shirt and a perfume sample and Yesenia received a Vince. t-shirt along with an Alice + Olivia phone case and a perfume sample! During the make over, I absolutely fell in love with the Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation. It left my skin feeling very refreshed and light and it looked flawless! I am really looking forward to purchasing this product very soon for our beach wedding in May!
