Lucky FABB Experience Day

Continuing on with my recap of last week's events...I wanted to share with you pictures of our second day with Lucky, which was a shopping excursion in SoHo.  As you'll see from the photos below, it was yet another day where they spoiled us rotten with a lavish breakfast, generous gift cards & champagne to end our spending spree.

We started the day at the beautiful Crosby Hotel, where we were treated to a delicious brunch (I literally went back for seconds)

Bloggers mingled & discussed their shopping strategy for the day

After we were fueled & ready, we headed over to the brand new Piperlime store & were the very first shoppers to enter the building after the green ribbon-cutting ceremony!

The store was laid out just as beautifully as their website & I could have easily spent countless hours & hundreds of dollars there (I'll be sharing my purchases with you in an upcoming post)

An impressive circular shelf display of shoes & handbags

The irresistible wall of jewelry, complete with mirrors so you can try everything on

After we left Piperlime, we sauntered down to Aritzia - it was my first time in this store and I absolutely fell in love.  They had a perfect mix of affordable & higher end pieces, plus casual & work-appropriate attire (the T.Babaton line, shown above, was my favorite)

Next on the list was TopShop - I didn't get any pictures of the inside of the store because I was too busy grabbing pieces off the racks and carrying an enormous load of things to the fitting room!  I still can't believe I walked out empty-handed, but it was only because they didn't have these shoes in my size.

After TopShop, we walked on to Kate Spade and I stood gazing at this wall of giant gold sequins for an embarrassingly long period of time

Most of the store, while beautiful, wasn't in my price range.  So I walked around happily snapping pictures of all the things I wished I could afford...

...like these hard-sided clutches

And this rhinestone-collared LBD (ah-mazing!)

We left Kate Spade and headed to our last stop, which was Calypso St. Barth, where we finished the day with a champagne toast

Happy group of shoppers with our purchases {I'm third in from the left - wearing: c/o eShakti blouse (last seen here), Forever 21 skinnies (similar), Ann Taylor cuff (last seen here), Target sunnies (similar)}

Sounds like an awesome day! I actually have a friend who works for Lucky and was probably the one giving your tour! She said it went really well from their end too :) I went to the Piperlime store that night and I think I see the Rebecca Minkoff bag I bought on the top shelf of the circle display thing. Such a cool store! x

I love Aritzia...everytime I go to NYC to visit my sis who lives in Chelsea, we head down to the SoHo store. I always get beautiful silk dresses, skirts, and blouses and they aren't that expensive (especially if they are having a big sale!!!!)

How fun that you were able to go to the Piperlime store! Looks like they have a lot of temptations in there.

I think it would be so dangerous if there was one near my home.

How do I get invited to these things!!?? SOOOo jealouse! By the way i love Aritzia, we have one in Chicago and i was just at the one in Soho in June where all the shop girls turned me on to the Sam Edelman Trina's that turned out to be my FAV summer sandals! If you ever want a source to ship you Top Shop or Aritzia items that maybe aren't online but at the Chicago stores let me know. I have a side biz that does such job!
