Saks Off 5th Event

Last night I attended an awesome blogger event at Saks Off 5th at the Legends sponsored by KC Blogger Meetup, a group that my friend, Jeanee, co-founded.

Admittedly, I was a little nervous about the event. I'm shy in large groups and didn't know what to expect, but more importantly, shopping isn't really my thing. I tend to pride myself on my frugal nature and (somewhat) minimalism. Clothes shopping terrifies me, nothing ever seems to fit right and I'm not really a fashionista.

BUT I was proven wrong. I had a great time pursuing the goods at Saks Off 5th with lots of lovely blogger ladies. In true Stephanie fashion, I was mostly found hanging around the home good items and the food table. Surprise, surprise, I know!

I even scored this lovely turtle. OMG guys. I've wanted a Jonathan Adler turtle for years. I even blogged about one in my post on BHG style spotters blog recently and here around Christmas. My friend, Crystal, found his younger brother hiding away in a box that I had skimmed over and I quickly snatched it out of her hands claiming it as my own. Truly the treasure of the evening.

As the store manager stated, they have everything from $5.00 to $5,000.00 price tags. I was very impressed with the price range and truly felt like there were a lot of things that fit my budget and my style. Many items in the store were discounted or on sale, which is also a huge bonus in my book!

Don't worry about my friend who I swiped the turtle from, she walked away with these adorable whale salt and pepper shakers, also by Jonathon Adler. And who wouldn't adore the lovely turquoise bracelet and bright color-blocked totes!

Thanks Saks Off 5th and KC Blogger Meetup for organizing and hosting such a great event! Now, I'm really looking forward to the Madewell Fall Preview Event!

Thanks for the mention -- and for accompanying me to the event. I'm glad we both came away with totems of our favorite animals.
