Shopping Is My Cardio

Last night I went to the LOFT grand reopening party at the Prudential.  It was hosted by Blog Better Boston.  Do you want to know what was so great about this event?

It combined two of my favorite things. . .

Shopping + Champagne

Scratch that - three of my favorite things. . .

Shopping + Champagne + Bloggers = Fabulous!

 I walked into the beautifully remodeled store and was handed a glass of champagne.  Thank you very much!  I was then told to take a picture of my favorite clothes and to share it on Instagram with the hashtag #LOFTFavs.  One person would be chosen to win $250 gift card.  

This dress (on the left) caught my eye immediately.  Love it.  Must try on!

Adorable right?!  I love when you love something on the hanger and still love it when you try it on.  I think this dress is so cute.  I'm going to save it for my California vacation in June.  It is always so fun to have new things to wear on vacation!  (Plus it will probably be too cold in Boston to wear it anytime soon but don't worry I'm not bitter about that at all)!

Oh and do you want to know the best thing about social media?  When you are shopping alone and need opinions you just post it on Instagram (follow me here) and within minutes you have all your friends giving you feedback.  I received 16 "likes" and 9 comments telling me to get it.  Well friends that was all the confirmations I needed!

I checked out all of the accessories of course but somehow managed to have some self-control and didn't buy any!  Such cute stuff though.

 Oh and I tried on a few other things too.  I took this picture when I first went into the dressing room to document the champagne.  A few glasses of bubbly and I'll look like Giselle in everything! Lol!

I bought the dress and they put it in this cute reusable shopping bag.  Doesn't that just say it all?  Love it!

By the way the dress is $79.50 but as you may remember from this post I never pay full price for anything at LOFT.  I had a coupon that I got in the mail for $25 off a purchase of $75 or more and then I had a rewards card (a thank you for reaching so many points with my LOFT credit card) for $20 off.  I was able to use both b/c the rewards card isn't a coupon!  

So I got the dress for $34.50!  Good deal!  

So all in all it was a good night.  

Loved meeting Alana, Amy, Emily and Shauna and seeing Alana again.

Great event girls!
