Do you know what its like to wander around a candy-filled wonderland? Miami fashionistas had the opportunity to experience such an event last week when Saks Fifth Avenue hosted Stacy Bendet of Alice + Olivia at their Bal Harbour Shops location.
As soon as fans walked in through the main Saks entrance, they were welcomed into the Contemporary department with trays of Moet champagne with straws as colorful as Bendet’s latest ready-to-wear collection. A large table served as the hearth of the event, filled with colorful candies, cupcakes, jelly beans, and even butterfly-shaped gummy bears that matched Stacy’s decorative hair pins!
Leggy models rocked funky sunglasses and sky-high hair-do’s along with bright pieces from the collection that are sure to set tongues wagging come spring.
I was alerted to Stacy’s arrival when the sea of beautiful people parted and all of a sudden the room became silent. Everyone attempted to catch a glimpse at her fashionable ensemble, which included the jaw-dropping A + O Gizelle pumps that everyone coveted!
This is most definitely one of the most fun events I’ve attended this year. How can you top a day filled with sweet treats, champagne, Cold Stone Ice Cream, beautiful clothing, and a chat with a beloved designer? Not to mention some fabulous friends to share the experience!
And since not all of you were able to stop by and enjoy this amazing event, we put together this fun video and some pictures for you all to enjoy.
Saks Fifth Avenue hosts many fashionable events around the year, so stay tuned to this space to find out who will be making an appearance in the future! I heard whispers of some really big names who will be stopping by in 2012, you won’t want to miss it.
