Fashion Week! We love it so much. So even though NYC ‘s forecast predicted a major winter storm, you better believe that we were on a plane all the way from California to bring another Style Studio to NYC. Nemo was lame anyway, totally unimpressive blizzard!
We partied all night with our favorite bloggers, gave away a ton of free fashion and beauty swag and had a blast while doing it! Take a look below for some snaps of the fun and shenanigans!
Tieka of Selective Potential and her beau. Such a darling couple.
NYX Cosmetics is one of our personal faves and they were so awesome to send over two super talented makeup artists to provide eye and lip touchups.
One of the new programs we implemented was Yours Truly, where attendees could vote on the hottest pieces from some of our favorite labels and be the voice in deciding what we carry this season. We also had LuLu*s exclusive pieces that we had made specifically for the event and got your feedback on how to make it just perfect!

Fine Featherheads had a booth offering up the best feather extensions I have seen, and gave away hair chalk in various colors for that perfect ombre mermaid look!
Jamberry Nails attended and set up a table complete with a nail tech. They have AMAZING nail wraps in a huge variety of prints, metallics and rad colors. Guests completed their outfits with the perfect set of nails, compliments of Jamberry!
They even separated the nail wraps in the themes of Style Studio! The Bombshell, Uptown Prep, The Sweetheart, Bohemian and Edgy are all looks we have broken the selection of the website into. Every girl fits into at least one style and Jamberry was awesome enough to create corresponding looks so girls could find her special look .
Miss Jessie’s had curly girls on lock! Due to the blizzard, most girls were jumping on the opportunity to get a hair touch up and Miss Jessie’s came complete with a team, a stylists chair and an arsenal of products to make sure that each lady was looking her loveliest!
As per every Style Studio event, our gifting suite was packed with freebies!
Beauty Without Cruelty, sent over a selection of some of their best selling skincare. All of their products smell amazing!!
Timeless fave, Goody, provided classic hair accessories! Thanks!
Gotta love some Rosebud Perfume Co. Their salves are the best. Did you know they have a Minted Rose salve? Need!
Evie Evan has some awesome skincare! Make sure to check out their purity mask, my personal fave, which they brought and gave away to attendees!
Daliia, a LuLu*s fave, brought her amazing herbal kohl liner. I swear by the silver for a highlight to my light eyes. Thanks for the tip, Dalia! What a babe, to boot!
Bodyography, another personal fave, sent along their primers! Seriously, best primer I have used and when I say I have tried a lot, I mean, A LOT. Maybe even all. JK. Make sure to cruise their site for amazing cosmetics.
Twistband, I love you. You have the best hair elastics in the cutest colors. Thank you for existing! Love, me.
LÄRABAR has SUPER delicious new flavors and they kept us fueled for the night and ready to deal with the cold (and the alcohol, lol).
POM Wonderful is just so rich in flavor and full of goodness. Attendees were so stoked to pick up a cool and refreshing bottle of their 100% pure juice. Thanks, POM!!
Hpnotiq and I have a love affair that dates back to last year. It was a cold night in NYC. The first Style Studio was commencing in Soho, a line forming around the block. As cold guests took solace inside and realized drinks were not only free but strong and full of Hpnotiq’s signature flavor, we had a happy house full of party-goers. THIS marked the beginning of our love story. Thanks, Hpnotiq! Hope to have you at every event, you really are a crowd pleaser.
We, OF COURSE, brought the famous spinning wheel packed with prizes from faves such as Twistband, Georgie Beauty, Chicobag, One Love Organics, BB Dakota, Black Sheep ,and True Beauty Box! We also had tons of LuLu*s gift cards! Guests lined up for a chance to win cool prizes.
One of my favorite parts was partnering up with Nylon Magazine to offer 5 lucky winners a VIP Style Session with our head stylist, Cara Fox-Galassi and Nylon editor Rachael Wang!
Here we have (left to right) Cara, our head stylist, with blogger Tessa of Couture Lust and Nylon’s Rachael Wang! These girls had a blast hanging out and finding the perfect pieces for each blogger to take home.
Each guest got to chose an item just for them, based on their personal style. Decisions, decisions! We packed the racks with the hottest looks on our site and we brought a little something for everyone.
All in all, this was an amazing event. Even with the snow and beyond cold temps, it was so great to catch up with our friends and meet new faces in NYC. See you soon Fashion Week! Maybe next time we will bring Style Studio to Fashion Week in September. Nemo will not be present at that event, I can promise you that (wink wink).
