event – festive social at LIV by Au Lit
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.

Kimberly of The Soul of my Shoes and Ashley Bartlett of She Does the City. Marta of With Love… was also at the event taking photos for LIV’s blog, I was a bit too absorbed with introductions and conversations to get many good shots so I can’t wait to see Marta’s pics.
