Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a preview event for the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Summer dress line. This was an event  I was really excited about for a while...although I'm blogging for over a year now, I still can't believe it when I get invited to fun fashion events like this.

As a busy mother and wife who has quite a drive to the city, I try to squeeze in as much as I can when I have anything to do in the city. I had a morning appointment in Brooklyn and an afternoon appointment in Manhattan and then the Lauren Summer Dress Event in the evening. I quickly emailed Mimi of LadyMama, my blogger friend in Brooklyn, (who I really like but never get to see outside of Facebook and our blogs), and asked if she'd meet me for a quick brunch before I had to run into the city.

Now, that morning, being that the weather was so gorgeous and spring like, I decided to go against my usual style and wear my newly purchased coral maxi skirt. As I pulled up to the cafe, I saw from afar that Mimi was wearing one too! I quickly texted her that we were twins so she wouldn't feel silly when she caught a glimpse of me!

We ended up having a really nice time and our skirts actually inspired her most recent post on her 'coral crush', check it out HERE, it's a really good one!

My afternoon ran pretty smoothly...I do have a lot to share about it, but I will save that story for a different time. Finally it was time for the Lauren Summer Dress Event.

I entered the beautiful building and rose to the 9th floor. When the elevator opened I was welcomed by the smiling faces of the Ralph Lauren staff waiting for us in the pristine and quintessentially Ralph Lauren styled space. Immaculate rooms glowed crisp white, and beautiful black and white fashion prints adorned the corridor walls. The salon door was flanked by over sized blue and white vases and the entrance contained a table with a huge bowl of the reddest roses

And suddenly I was surrounded by some of the most simplistically exquisite dresses and gowns.
There was something for everyone. There were dresses with stripes, florals, sequins, lace, ruching, metallics, jersey, chiffon...you name it. All classic and all perfectly designed. And the best part? Each dress will be under $200!

Take a look:

This was one of my favorites...I guess coral was the color of the day!
And here's fellow blogger Kimberly from EatSleepWear who's style was 'spot on'
Me and Mimi earlier in the day...great minds think alike!
Which dress is your favorite?

Have a great weekend!
