The holiday season is upon us and that means it’s time to make our way to the mall and shops. Whether you’re looking for that perfect holiday dress or a great gift Bloomingdale’s has a standout selection. I recently had the opportunity to host and style a holiday Fashion Show at Bloomingdale’s The Shops at Riverside (just across the Hudson from Manhattan). Shoppers and fashion bloggers attended this festive fashion show as we welcome one of the busiest times of the year. Why not do it in high-style and with affordable luxury.
Bloomingdale’s has an impressive mix of casual and special occasions fashions, so styling this fashion show was very enjoyable. The models wore looks that could easily take you from work to weekend in basics with stylish details. Of course, we had to touch upon the beautiful Bloomingdale’s cashmere sets, which make a cozy gift for a friend, family member or for yourself! Statement coats that keep you warm with an elevated design are also on trend this season. As we welcome the holidays and New Year, dress to impress in chic dresses with metallic accents and own the occasion. With gorgeous outfits from Aqua, Ted Baker London, DVF, Maj, Parker and more I wanted to give the guests styling suggestions when looking to dress up for a special party.
There was also a wonderful display of gifts and gift sets that can currently be found at Bloomingdales. From adorable sparkly Kate Spade wristlets, to chic phone cases and even cocktail sets for the hostess with the mostess — there were so many fabulous gifts to choose from. You can also easily update your skincare regime with sets from Clinique or give the gift of beauty with various lipgloss and makeup sets available in special sets priced well.
The guests enjoyed treats from Jarets Stuffed Cupcakes and Skinny Girl Sparkling Drinks. My aim was to help spread the holiday cheer and celebrate fashion, beauty and everything festive! It was great seeing many of my blogger colleagues including Melissa of Super Glam News, Maria of Maria’s Kloset, Shareen of Pearls and Paris, Cara of Fashion Swain, Tiffany of Love Grey Skies, Margaux of Karma for a Cure, and Ashley of Ashley Chennel Beauty. It was additionally nice to see Julianne and Jackie with Ava — what’s a day at the mall without your girlfriends! A special thank you to my models Adrienne and Samantha for working the runway and showcasing the hottest seasonal looks from Bloomingdale’s.
