So, like I previously mentioned, I’ve been hard at work for the past month or so working on an event for my current job. Well, last Friday night was the moment of truth. It was pouring rain; I mean POURING. The store had minimal foot traffic all day and by 5pm my nerves were a mess as the T-Time loomed closer. Would anyone show up? Would we make any sales? Would we even achieve a “party” atmosphere? I was a wreck.
While we got off to a semi-late start, the party picked up and my nerves were eased. Bloggers, media, and shoppers alike wandered into my store, taking the eCruiser straight to our door. Everyone gawked at the bumping soiree, while other events were canceled or subpar. It was an overwhelming experience, knowing all my hard work had paid off and then some.
The fashionable event was hosted by E of District of Chic and Krystin of BeLoudBeYou, two fabulously sweet and oh so stylish local DC bloggers I’m so happy to have had the chance to work with. Ofcourse, the TARI team was there including our owner, manager, and operations manager, Tamika of MyDesignerDreams. With complimentary cupcakes, tea, and cocktails, as well as sweet tunes by my friend Caleb L’ Etoile and the lovely photobooth images by my friend Brian, not to mention my beau and his BFF Twinning and Bartending, there was plenty of fun to be had!
I wore an H&M dress with H&M booties, instead of my planned cream and white Erin Fetherston dress with cream platform pumps…somehow black seemed much more fitting for the weather, so no regrets.
