This One's for the Ladies

A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to win Fun and Fearless’ giveaway for V.I.P. tickets to StyleFixx Girls’ Night Out in Boston. The event took place on May 12 and 13th (I went on the 13th) at Boston Center for the Arts, and featured over 55 designers and brands, as well as massages, facials, makeovers, complimentary wine and beer, and elegant food samples. The center was decked out for the event, creating a funky, eclectic atmosphere for the evening.

Before I go on, I have to admit: I know nothing about fashion. A high end boutique for me is T.J. Maxx, and if an article of clothing doesn’t have a red clearance ticket on it, I probably won’t buy it. So, going into this event I was convinced I’d be in sticker shock – however, after perusing just a few of the tables, I realized my assumptions were way off. Designer scarves, purses, clothing, and jewelry were scattered amongst the tables at the event, and most of the price tags were within $200 (at least, from what I saw). To be honest, the majority of the items were under $100. 

I did not end up buying anything at StyleFixx (except for a ginormous slice of Upper Crust pizza, which was a mere $3 – my guest and I split the slice), but here are some of my highlights:

-Received 12 free classes at Healthworks, along with a 3-day trial

-Luna bars (chocolate peanut butter and cookie dough flavors were on-hand for sampling) – never knew how good these things were! 

-Finale brownies and chocolate cake samples:

-Free Barefoot Pinot Grigio (which the bars ran out of, so I opted for the Barefoot Pinot Noir later in the evening)

Yes, I realize most of my favorites are food-related – but what did you expect? ;)

All in all, it was a fun, relaxing evening and it was great to go to an event that I normally wouldn't buy tickets for - especially because I was pleasantly surprised at the prices and vendors! Plus, being V.I.P. and all, I got a swag bag FULL of goodies - I'm not kidding - StyleFixx did not skimp here. The bag was chocked full of free samples, coupons, snacks (including two Luna bars!), Vitamin Water, and candy. Such a great thing!

Bonus: I got to meet Michelle from Fun and Fearless, who presented me with the opportunity to attend StyleFixx in the first place. Thanks again, Michelle!

Did you attend either night of StyleFixx? What did you think of the event?
