LIV invite

Thanks to Final Fashion sponsor LIV by Au Lit, I had a wonderful opportunity to invite 20 of my favourite fashion friends – writers, bloggers and stylists – to celebrate the beginning of the winter holiday season with wine and cupcakes and check out all the goods at LIV.  This is the second sponsored event I’ve done in the intimate, casual spirit of my old series of networking brunches, TFBB.

Here I am looking as festive as I’ll ever get!

I love being a connecter of people – I tried to invite a mix of good pals from the TFBB days and newer friends that I’d like to get to know better – and of course people I think would like to meet eachother. I also tried to pick people I knew would love LIV’s chic, friendly style and the vintage-inspired jewelry of featured designers Edmoure Ralph.  All while keeping the event small enough to be intimate.  I’m lucky to have the enviable problem of knowing way too many awesome people so putting together the guest list was a happy challenge.

Thanks everyone who came!  It was so much fun to see you all.  Roll call:

      I will have to go check it out, it looks gorgeous!

      do you think that my stuff would be a good fit for the store? Trying to expand my store base right now.

    8. Blair – you should check it out! And why not show Joanna some of your lovely fascinators when you do? You never know.

    9. Thank you Danielle for a special evening at LIV by Au Lit.
      I was happy to have a chance to see the fashions as well as Joanna’s gorgeous home furnishings collection. It was an added bonus to see Edmoure Ralph’s new jewellery line.
