This past Wednesday we hosted our second Moms Night Out at Pearl Wine Co. The night was made possible by our generous sponsors Touro Infirmary, Vivere Health, ALG Style, Waxing the City, FRESH Bar, Cleaver & Co and Bittersweet Confections. We were thrilled to have such a large group join us for this event. Nothing makes us happier than to be able to connect with readers that we have chatted with online in real life.
We started off the night right with super fresh wraps and salad from FRESH Bar and hot flavorful red beans and rice from Cleaver & Co. Moms entered to win giveaways as they chatted with Vivere Health and Waxing the City. We all sipped wine courtesy of Pearl Wine Co. and sampled beautiful cupcakes and roca from Bittersweet Confections.
After the crowd arrived and settled in, ALG Style started their presentation, “Never give up, never surrender, yoga pants are for quitters.” These ladies (which we lovingly refer to as our Fashion Fairy Godmothers) gave a spirited and fun presentation which included such lines as “If you think you MIGHT have cameltoe, take it OFF” among other memorable favorites. They passed out a handout at the event with their Spring Fashion Forecast which included tips such as:
- Orange is the New Black: tangerine to coral, this fiery shade is running rampant for Spring in everything from lipsticks to ladylike shifts.
- Blush Not Bashful: Pales pinks paired with navy and dark hues are sophisticated and edgy. Lavender, lilac, and orchid are also pretty pastels perfect for every skin pallet.
- Fringe Fest: Hippie chic adornments on jackets, handbags, and hemlines have you heading to San Francisco. A little love goes a long way.
- 3D: Texture, beading, sequins, pleats, and folds fastened on your dresses, jackets, and footwear. Do us a favor do not wear them all at once.
If you would like to learn more about ALG Style and how they can help you conquer your closet and your wardrobe you can message them on Facebook, Tweet them, or email them at [email protected] For the rest of February they are offering all NOMB readers $50 off a Style and Closet Makeover (regularly $350) and $25 off of an Outfitting Session (regularly $125) where they teach you how to “Shop your closet,” creating new looks from your current wardrobe on your iPhone or iPad.
