We had been anxiously awaiting our Style Studio event in Phoenix for so long that once it crept up on us we could barely believe it was finally time! I had heard a lot about Phoenix’s fashion community and although to some it seemed like an unlikely place for a fashion blogger event, it was a huge success! The positivity and passion of the community was so apparent and everyone was so excited to be there. The crowd always makes an event and for that I would like to say, thanks Phoenix, you made the evening! Hundreds of fashionistas poured through the doors, dressed to the nines and ready to shop, network, and party!
Radiant Cosmetics was one of our attending sponsors and they brought a makeover station so guests could try their products and hear about the great mission behind the company! Radiant’s mission is to help garner awareness for human trafficking by raising funds through cosmetics. They have so many wonderful pieces in their line and with such a positive mission, we were truly happy to have them there!
At our gifting suite table, we had an amazing selection of free swag. Orly nail polishes were a guest fave!
Twistband hair ties offered up in vibrant neons! These are super awesome because since they are so flexible they don’t leave a dent in your hair!
Goody elastics! A childhood classic that has stood the test of time for me! I’m so glad they contributed, and our guests were stoked as well!
Guests browsing our gifting suite! EO hand sanitizing sprays were being raved about all night! Everyone loved the portability and the fresh scent.
Trying to decide on your favorite POP Beauty eyeshadow trio is harder than it looks . . . trust me. These guests were having a blast looking over the selection POP Beauty sent over!
Funk Off! vegan lip balms were super minty and fresh, and snatched up in no time!
Mr. Fun Booth set up the best photo booth I’ve seen. With a foot pedal to start and a monitor in front of you, you get to grab a funny prop, pose and get your printed photos in no time. It was a great way for everyone to get silly and make some memories.
Shopping our pop-up shop with specially curated sections based on your look is a Style Studio tradition. You follow a printed style map to find your fashion destination and then you head over to that section to browse looks pulled just for you!
KIND Snacks has been on my personal radar for some time, so when they agreed to come on out I was so excited! Natural and healthy snacks are their specialty and what better way to stay fueled for a night of shopping with your friends?
POM Wonderful is one of those brands that everyone loves. Refreshing, natural, and packed full of healthful benefits and flavors, their product is something we could really get used to having around all the time. Luckily, we were able to work with them for Style Studio Phoenix on a special mocktail just for our guests: the POM Mimosa (with sparkling cider and fresh POM juice) was a smash hit! All night, everyone was carrying a little cup of happiness and chatting up how delicious it was. What a great way to ring in the fall, with pomegrantes and yummy apple cider!
Of course we brought the spinning prize wheel! This lovely lady won $50 and is pretty excited. Who wouldn’t be??
One of the absolute best parts of the evening was having blogger extraordinaires, Erin of Calivintage and Mara of M Loves M (respectively). I absolutely ADORE these two and have had the pleasure of working with them for a while now. Getting them out to Arizona was a dream and the crowd thought so too. Erin hosted a style competition where we had her pick several attendees from the crowd who had rad personal style, then sent them over to the LuLu*s shop to create an outfit to be judged a winner. The winner got to take home their styled outfit and the runner-ups got to take home a piece each! So much fun and so happy to have had Erin there with us. Mara presented her favorite fall styles with LuLu*s pieces such as peplums, metallics, military styles, and more! We gave away the pieces to lucky winners who were happy to get some fall forecasting swag! Watching Mara speak was great because she is just the sweetest girl with a lovely stage presence!

Bringing Style Studio to Phoenix was a huge success and we were so happy to meet you all. I can’t wait to start planning the next big event! Where would you like LuLu*s Style Studio to come next?
The LuLu*s Team!
