on saturday, megan and i had an in-store styling event at b. (a resale shop). it was so much fun and turned out even better than we had hoped! what we did was style outfits for customers using all the merchandise throughout the store. since we were selling our wares there for the month of january (and have decided to keep our stuff there for the month of february, as well), we had a nice mix of our fun, vintage items and the cool, contemporary clothes and accessories that are always for sale at b. we had a few clients lined up that had asked for our help ahead of time, so we got there early and had a blast scouring the racks for amazing pieces and putting together outfits for them before they showed up. this is what megan and i absolutely love to do! we love making people look amazing no matter what their budget. it is so fun for us to create unique, creative and fun looks for others who may never put those particular pieces together themselves. once we had all of those outfits picked out, we decided to just start helping whoever walked through the door. most everyone we asked went ahead and let us style them up, and many of them left with piles of clothes that we had chosen just for them. it was truly so much fun and really exhilarating! we left the store giddy and excited to do it again. and hopefully we will be doing it again very soon! but more on that to come...
we, of course, had to style ourselves up for the event, as well! this is what we wore...

pink necklace~ F21
long necklace~ Heartbreaker
