This spring, Westfield Southcenter and My Style Suite are celebrating women and showcasing personal style through a 3-part series of Style Boss fashion events. The first event of the series, Style Boss - Boss Style, took place on April 26 and I was asked to be one of the featured Influencers and panelists! Alongside Julianna of Blush and Camo and Hayley of Me and Mr. Jones, we shared tips on how to create a stylish and work-appropriate wardrobe and fashion secrets to get ahead in the workplace.
Held in the My Style Suite of Westfield Southcenter, the evening started with mingling among guests, fashionistas and style bloggers in attendance. Drinks were poured compliments of O Wines and Michelle Sparkling. Light Bites were nibbled courtesy of Duke's Chowderhouse. And not to be missed was the candy bar provided by Lolli & Pops! Nordstrom and Gene Juarez were also on hand to provide makeup and hair touch-ups.
Guests were then treated to a seated fashion presentation and panel, discussing all things fashion and style in the workplace. Myself, along with the other Influencers, styled 4 looks each, featuring workplace appropriate attire all available at Westfield Southcenter and perfect for a #StyleBoss! We shared must haves for a work wardrobe, tips for incorporating items already in your closet, best ways to take an outfit from desk to date and more.
A few of the highlights:
"If it doesn't make you feel confident, don't buy it!" - Hayley of Me and Mr. Jones
"Every Style Boss needs 2 pairs of shoes: a nude pair and a black pair to mix and match with everything" - that's my advice!
"The best way to take an office look from day to night is to layer, layer, layer!" - Julianna of Blush and Camo
The event concluded with some Q&A, time for mingling and of course oh so stylish Swag Bags! Thank you so much Westfield Southcenter, My Style Suite and Gossip & Glamour for the opportunity to participate in the Style Boss series and help to celebrate women and showcase personal style!
