Style School in New York City

 

Wow! Our 1st annual Style School turned out to be a fabulous & very busy day full of fashion, food, new trends in back to school from backpacks to snacks, wine tasting, rock star hairstyles, and more.

My good friend Whitney from Mommies with Style teamed up with me to bring Mom bloggers and their children together to engage with brands to socialize and get to know each other better. We’ve been working on this event for months and are thrilled that everyone had a wonderful time.

Yes the kids brought a little chaos but overall added a ton of fun to Style School. Back to school is all about the kids and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to include children in our event.

Take a peek at my quick photo recap to get a feel for the event. And I’d love to give a big thank you to all our generous sponsors.

Kids decorated lunch bags in the Mott’s play zone too while Moms could chat with a nutritionist. Awesome!

Land’s End showered all of our guests with these incredible back packs for back to school. Camo patterned bags for the boys and butterfly florals for the little girls.

Fooling around by the Children’s Advil  table & Photo booth was a blast. We crammed our entirentire family into the booth and had a field day fooling around in there. What a wonderful way to engage Moms & kids!

Punk rock hairdo’s were all over Style School thanks to 77kids – creating “faux-hawks” along with color striping and spraying everyone’s hair. Awesome!

Kids loved the candy & prize bar 77kids set up – along with posing in front of their rock star booth!

Wine tasting with Cameron Hughes was a real treat for the Moms. We were so excited to learn about their ultra premium wines that are literally sold far below cost. Delicious! Moms sampled 3 wines from Cameron Hughes and we’ve got a 10% coupon code off any order at their website here: http://www.chwine.com with code WINERIOT.

Getting hair done by Remington was a divine treat for both the kidlets and the Mamas. Remington showcased their Remington’s Style Solutions collection – awesome tools priced from $20 -$29.99. The Wrap to Waves tool went home with all of our guests too! I love the natural wavy look on Moms. Gorgeous but it looks so natural!  Here it is on Kenzie!

More punk looks while hanging out at the Play Doh table. Kenzie loved reconnecting with her buddy William, my girlfriend & co-author Audrey’s son.

Moms embraced the gigantic clothing swap at the Zulily booth too as they also browsed the stellar brand name picks that Zulily serves up daily for as much as 90% off!

My family and I posing by the classic step & repeat for Style School. I couldn’t have thrown this event without all of their help – from driving into NY city together to the kids styling in 77kids clothes and helping out with all the brands.

Here we are loading out on the frieght elevator. Even the hard work is fun when the kids are included!

And we included all these goodies from our generous sponsors in the gift bags for everyone too. What fun! My kids are now having a field day doing little set ups with their “swag” at home as they have now decided to align all kinds of toys amidst their samples.  Kyle loves spraying the dry shampoo and hairspray on his hands too which is just too funny.

I can’t wait to see what Style School 2012 brings for next year!
