Candy Plum Trunk Show

by - 11:28 PM

Hey Loves!

This weekend I went to the Candy Plum Trunk Show which featured the designers from gla.MAR.ous and Makla.

The event was a lot of Fun. Candy Plum is a boutique in Astoria, Queens owned by Marija Pavic. Marija is extremely nice and very easy to talk to, which I really enjoy and appreciate. The store has over 50 independent, emerging designers and it has SUCH an amazing aura. To say it's a "special" place is selling it short. You'd have to visit to experience what I mean AND YOU SHOULD!

The trunk show had a lot of champagne, girl-talk and laughter AKA: The total shopping experience.

Enjoy the pictures below! This week I will have some D.I.Y. holiday gift tutorials so please make sure to check back in!

Here is what I wore below.
Vintage dress, Lela Rose shoes, gla.MAR.ous zipper headband, Kenneth Cole Coat.

If you notice above I got a few feather extensions in my hair! They are so awesome and everyone loves them. They're very unique in NYC. Read more about them here.
