I recently had the chance to be a part of the Vanity Fair Social Club (#VFSC) Pre-Oscars week events for Social Influencers at @WeWork in Hollywood! There were week long festivities including panels with various speakers, Q&As, free things, free makeup, nails and hair styling, happy hour drinks, food, networking and more!
Being a busy graduate student, I was having a crazy week at the lab, but I managed to sneak out of work early on Friday afternoon and took the bus from UCLA to Hollywood just in time for a panel, drinks, some food, fun with some great ladies! I also made it on Saturday, the last day of the the VFSC events, and it was a blast!
I got to see my friends and some Blogger Babes, (blogger babes represent!) and I got to take some really cute and funny pictures at the #VFSC photo booth! We all loved that thing, it was very amusing! Took some funny photos with Heidi from The Ambitionista, Alma from Practically Fashion, and Chantal from Boyajian Trend Gallery!
There was also a Twitter-powered Vending Machine, giving out a lot of free stuff such as full size Armani Mascara, Armani Lipstick, L’Oreal Makeup Palette, the new Acqua Di Gio cologne, Grey Goose Copper mug for moscow mules, Clarisonic face cleanser, and more! It was so awesome! I took home one of each of these, except the Armani Acqua Di Gio cologne… hehe
I missed a lot of the events from previous days during the week that I wish I had a chance to go to, but friends told me they were amazing as usual, and they got to meet the new face of Armani Acqua Di Gio among other awesome celebs! There is always next year, hopefully I can attend more events next year!
What to wear to such an event? Since I had to go to work before the event on Friday, I decided to dress up for work – I wore a cute black dress with flower skirt I had received as a gift, and I wore my new necklace from Minu Jewels. I didn’t get a photo of the outfit at the event, but I will post an outfit photo soon! I wore black leggings and black ankle booties from Sam & Libby, which were nice and stylish, and also comfortable! AND, this outfit was easily transitional from work to play. Everyone at work was asking me why I was dressed up; I didn’t think I was THAT dressed up, but maybe I was 😉
On Saturday, I decided to be a little more casual, as I had to attend an outreach event for a student group I am a part of at UCLA. I wore a blue/white/yellow floral blouse with blue and gold drop earrings, some dark jeans, and black knee high boots! It was rather stylish and comfortable to spend a nice day — again, coming up in an outfit post!
Can’t wait to review/try this new Armani mascara and lipstick! I have been using DiorShow Blackout mascara religiously (as I have posted before), and this new mascara is considered the “Mascara of 2015,” so we’ll see how it measures up to my test. And this lipstick, it is bright red — I have been itching to get a lipstick of this shade, and an occasion to wear it!
Here are some photos from the Photo Booth with some hot blogger babes!
I took a look at the Oscars Fashion this year, and there were some AMAZING dresses on the red carpet! Wish I could’ve gone to an Oscars Viewing party or one of the actual Oscars parties, but oh well, maybe next year!
Did you watch the Oscars / The Academy Awards? What was your favorite red carpet look?
My birthday is coming up on Friday, and letting you in on a little secret, I am heading to Vegas for the weekend with the boy and some friends! Birthday fashion to come soon 🙂
I love events like this! So much fun!
