Mango Event 5/12/2011

Went to my first ever bloggerish event! It was held at the Mango store in Soho, NYC and I had an absolute amazing time!  We had the challenge of putting together outfits for a chance to win some fab prizes.  Here's the outfit I came up with!



Although I didn't win, I had a blast putting together my outfit with my trusty friend and photographer of the day.  Thanks so much Murphy for holding my heavy butt bag, my clothes, all the while maneuvering my cam to take some pics ;)  Also met Candy of Taylor and Demolish who was one of the lucky winners (check out her absolutetly super cool DIY projects on her blog), was asked repeatedly if I worked at the store (since I was strutting around in their wares but really, I had the tags still on each piece of garment) and was also asked for some style advice by some shoppers!





Natalie from Natalie off Duty was there and was the sole judge (that must be a hard thing to do with all the anxious stares when it was time to pick the winners), and I got to chat with her for a bit and take a photo (notice my trying to stretch myself to her absolutely magnificent height...god, I wish I was tall)! 


And now for some pretty things that I'll definetly be going back for!






I also surprised myself with coming away with only this fabulous ring (the ENTIRE store was 20% off), but since I had a sort of shopping frenzy this week, I thought I'd better cool it and was very proud of myself for sticking to my guns. I love this ring and was quite satisfied with it, that is until I got home and noticed that there was a defect. 



Can you ladies see what's wrong with it? 

Anyhoo, Mango had the ring online still so I called the 800 number, told the rep my problem and she gave me free shipping AND 20% off AND apologized for my inconvenience! Got the ring the very next day in the mail!  Mango, with that great customer service, you have made a customer for life! Excellent!
