Look Good...Feel Better - National Beauty Editors Day at Saks Fifth Avenue

Sunday, August 19, 2012

This past Thursday I had the opportunity to go to the Look Good...Feel Better Event in conjunction with National Beauty Editors Day at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. I was excited to meet some of the fabulous beauty editors from my favorite magazines, and I loved the idea that for a mere $30 to support the cause of helping women recovering from cancer, you got a beauty consultation with one of the editors. 
I was thrilled to meet the beautiful Trish McEvoy and her team!
I felt like I was meeting  a real celeb when I met Valerie Monroe from O Magazine!
The beauty editor of People Magazine was super friendly.
The makeovers were fun and fabulous!
And when I took a break to find a bathroom, I mistakenly took the express elevator to the 8th floor which (I'm sure some of you know) is pure shoe heaven! What a nice surprise :)
The editor of the print magazine of Style.com (THE source for all the latest runway fashion) wore head to toe, divine and refined Burberry to represent the Burberry makeup counter she was stationed at.

The simple and classic dresses in burgundy (this Fall's 'it' color), caught my eye in the Saks window. Check out the background sculpture made of brown lunch bags. Now that's what I call cheap chic.
I'll never get sick of walking in New York City.
And the best surprise of the day? I got stopped by a street style blogger, Mangue Banzima of Qui Style in Savanna, who wanted to snap my photo for his blog!

 Sunglasses: Tom Ford, Shirt: Kiki Riki, Skirt: Zara, Under Skirt (for modesty): Linda Leal, Shoes: Vince Camuto, Bracelets: Forever 21, Target and Bitz of Glitz.

Now I'm off to a Chicago, for an end of summer road trip with my girls. I hope I get to post while I'm away, but regardless, I wish you a great week ahead!

Until next time,
