Blogger Reception @ Arundel Mills

I'm a morning person. My body does not understand the term sleeping in. I wished it did, though. The only time it happens is if I'm drunk tipsy the night before or I'm sick. That's about it. So, it wasn't a problem for me waking up bright and early on a beautiful Saturday morning to go to the Bloggers Reception at Arundel Mills.

In one my favorite section: Purses!

The main store where we had our breakfast and trend report session was at Last Call by Neiman Marcus. The trend report session was given by the Last Call manager at Arundel Mills, Dan Grossman. He showed us some of the fall trends that are currently in his store: cozychic (i.e. larger/oversized sweaters and pullovers), bright colors in fall items (leather, coats, sweaters), statement jewelry, etc. Afterwards, we took a tour around the store and had ourselves a shopping session thanks to the $50 gift card that was given to us.

Once done, Elizabeth Natwick, Director of Marketing & Business Development for Arundel Mills took over and gave us a walking tour of the Fashion District in the mall. We stopped over at DKNY, Ultra Diamonds, NYDJ - Not Your Daughter's Jeans and, finally, Vince Camuto. At DKNY, there was a raffle drawing and guess who won herself a $100 DKNY gift card? That's right, me! woop, woop.

It was cool hanging out with bloggers I knew and getting to know new bloggers. And, in one case, getting to meet a blogger that I've been following for some time.

A pretty fun day!
