So the nice thing about a party out of town is that since you have to pack in advance, there is much less of that pre-event, what to wear scramble or mind changing that comes for those of us who are still flying by the seat of our fashionable pants!! While I’m sure I have many fashion friends who plan outfits in advance, lay it all out, line up the shoes and jewels and have hair photos ready to go for inspiration, I haven’t quite mastered that yet. I’m never totally sure what the final product will be until probably minutes before walking out the door, and even then I might have some last minute inspiration to add a bow or bangle, change my earrings (which I almost always wear thanks to the voice of my mother in my head) or wear a different shoe! However call it a need to pack or more likely the excitement of meeting Ms. Conrad (AKA LC lol), this outfit was lined up and ready to go!!
My previous recent trip to LA resulted in an epic shoe haul from the Nordstroms Rack that included some killer heels from Vince Camuto that had a beautiful lime green color in the front that perfectly matched an adorable Rebecca Taylor dress that I had picked up last summer from Dash Miami. I definitely had to rock my rose gold double chain BaubleBar necklace from my Popsugar Must Have Box with it!!
I think it was the perfect outfit choice for an LA party with Popsugar!!! It was also nice getting ready with a view of Skybar so we could know just the right time to arrive lol. When we got down there Skybar had been transformed with pink lights, Popsugar pillows and bottles of Malibu Island Spiced.
There was an adorable step and repeat display you can see in the pictures behind us and a bar with their Malibu Island Spiced featured drinks.
My favorite was definitely the Ohh La La which had Malibu Island Spiced and Elderflower liqueur in it. Once we picked our drinks we had a blast at Lauren Conrad‘s garnish bar decorating them with edible flowers, gold sprinkles, rock candy or fruit. With all the options, we were able to try something different with each drink!
Rock candy and pink straws make everything better!! Overall it was an awesome time, Lauren Conrad was the sweetest along with all the AMAZING Popsugar staff that made this possible. I also want to shout out Malibu Rum, Virgin America and the Mondrian LA of the Morgan Hotel Group because they also contributed to making this trip EPIC!! I still can’t believe this really happened!! And if all that wasn’t enough, they gave everyone these adorable boat bags with some of their Must Have Goodies inside!!!
Hope everyone had an awesome end of summer and Labor day weekend!!! I’m back to my normal life in DC but what a way to end the summer!! Thanks so my BFF Carlis of Spicy Candy DC for making the journey with me!! Have a great week and I hope you enjoyed our trip with us!!
