Here at LuLu*s, we had the wonderful experience of taking part in a weekend full of fashion, friends, and food in the beautiful city of Austin, Texas! Attending and sponsoring the Texas Style Council Conference allowed us to meet new bloggers, finally meet some of the talented bloggers we already work with, and give away some serious LuLu*s swag! The Texas Style Council Conference (TxSCC) was a fabulous weekend with many events including a Clothing Swap hosted by Swap.com and The Swapaholics, a Scavenger Hunt, a Dance Party and a Style and Social Media Symposium.
At the Dance Party, held at the stunning Bo Concept showroom in Austin, sponsors and brands setup shops, allowing guests to browse unique items such as vintage and new clothing, accessories, and more! We were able to create a LuLu*s Lounge, where attendees could come and chill, spin our prize wheel, and take a photo or two! We met so many wonderful people and had a blast giving away gift cards and cute jewelry.
Bloggers signed in to our guest book and picked up a flyer outlining a way to win a $500 shopping spree to Lulus.com!
Excited faces lit up the room while spining the prize wheel! Everyone was hoping for the $100 gift cards!
Two of my favorite ladies! Above we have the beautiful Kendi of the beloved blog, Kendi Everyday! Below, we have the lovely Jen from the oh-so-popular blog Jen Loves Kev! These two ladies couldn’t be more charming and sweet in real life. It is so fun to make “internet” friends and be even more delighted by their shiny personalities and presence!
I love this face! Everyone had so much fun at this event!
After spinning the wheel, some winners had the luck of getting to choose a piece of jewelry from our table! We had everything from Claire Fong earrings and cute-as-a-button bowtie necklaces to bangles and glittering tarantula bracelets (a suprising fan favorite!).
Just two of my new favorite people in the world, Melissa and Amy from The Swapaholics (far left and center-left). These two creative cuties get to jet set around and host swaps around the country as the official event hostesses for Swap.com! Sounds like a dream job! Alessandra and I (center-right and far right) were lucky enough to get some hang out time with this adorable duo and snap a few pics while we were at it!
Jen is looking happy as a clam hanging out with another favorite blogger of mine, the lovely Katy of Kansas Couture! I love the color of Jen’s shoes along side the vibrant coral shade of Katy’s dress. Looking peachy in our Queen of Anything Coral Dress, Katy knows that spring is all about the brights! All in all, the dance party was a great time spent one-on-one with both known and up-and-coming bloggers. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday than dancing the night away with creative people in a city as beautiful as Austin!
But of course we made time for some authentic southern BBQ! Nothing beats Texas BBQ and the trip would be incomplete without it!
