Yesterday, I went to the Charlotte Russe Holiday 2010 Preview with my colleague Daniela and we had such a great time! As soon as we walked down the stairs at RDV in Meatpacking, I knew that the event would be a success. From the romantic ambiance with touches of pink to the fashionable crowd, the whole aesthetic of the party was amazing. Everywhere I looked, there was fashion eye candy! From vintage chandeliers draped with jewelry to random touches of sparkle, I died.
The 9 dresses designed for this particular holiday collection were displayed, fully styled, throughout the room. The dresses were not only beautiful but they are all set at a retail price under $50.00. The 5 handbags designed for the collection retail at under $25. In addition to the new collection were the holiday jewelry and shoes. Don’t get me started on those as they were a free for all, which to any fashionista basically means that you have died and gone to heaven. Yes, faux fur lined booties, sequin flats, neon pumps, all free.
As if the night could have not gotten better, Daniela and I got the chance to meet Charlotte Russe Creative Director and Gossip Girl Stylist, Eric Daman. All I have to say is that he is just as amazing and fashionable in person as his new holiday line which launches October 24th!
Before we could leave, we had a few hors d’ oeuvres, schmoozed, and enjoyed the French macarons, which are personally one of my favorite treats. I had the pistachio while Daniela opted for a piece of chocolate candy. But before we could exit the door, we were gifted metallic-wrapped packages filled with even more goodies.
After last night, we are definitely looking forward to Eric’s spring 2011 collection also featuring 9 dresses under $50 set to hit stores January 23, 2011.
