SPLASH! Glossed & Found Summer Preview Event:Last night was an event filled night! First, I went to the Glossed & Found preview event with my friend Taylor. It was held at a venue I’d never been to before so I was really excited to experience a new spot. The event was held at RM Champagne Salon in the West Loop in a quaint and adorable patio. The decor was so tasteful and I felt as if we were in a little garden party.
Veuve Clicquot was the champagne of choice served last night in their adorable branded champagne flutes, as well as Peroni and a crafted summer cocktail with Grand Marnier. The alcohol branding throughout the event was executed really well and I like that they had a limited selection of each different type of drink.
Each center piece was different and they were super cute. The only thing that I think was a bit lacking in terms of brand awareness was anything for Glossed & Found. They had a few of the magazine spreads throughout the event, but I don’t think they were represented enough. I saw much more branding from the different alcohol brands than the actual magazine which was the focus of the preview event.
On Victoria – After the Glossed & Found event we also attended a Team Imerman Angels event, so I had to represent in my blue pleated dress. (Marshall’s – Mercer & Madison similar here for $99.50)
-Nails: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in Mint Sorbet
On Taylor – a black and white striped peplum dress paired with mint chain link necklace. (Target – Mossimo here for $24.99; Urban Outfitters) She also paired her outfit with a pair of black lace up booties.
The weather was gorgeous so I had to break out some summer floral sandals. (DSW – Audrey Brooke here for $59.95)
Team Imerman Angels Mix & Mingle:
After SPLASH! we went to English bar downtown for a Team Imerman Angels mix and mingle event. We recruited some new runners and spent time getting to know our fellow team members. It’s always amazing to spend time with such great people involved with Imerman Angels.
If you’d like to get involved with Team Imerman Angels and support an amazing organization, you can run any race anywhere. (and now even sponsor with your sports teams!) As a team member you get a Nike Dry-Fit Imerman Angels jersey and participation in some super fun events and races with our team.
