And “Fall into Fashion” we did! L3 members, dressed in fashionista attire, totally experienced the energy and excitement of a high-end glamorous fashion show on Thursday, September 19th! Just as if it were in NYC, Glitz Glamour were everywhere! Upon entering the ballroom, guests were greeted with a glass of prosecco topped with a raspberry and immediately immersed in a palette of blush, rose, cream and chocolate with gold highlights. Striking Chinese lanterns surrounded by “tissue paper poofs” were suspended from chandeliers…..tables, adorned in cream and rose linens, each unique and named for designers Versace, Ferragamo, Chanel, Valentino and more….statuesque couture mannequins, dressed in tulle, lace and jewels, stood proudly on each table, perched on beveled mirrors surrounded by rose petals, glimmering jewels and glowing candles of varying sizes…..mini gold purse compact mirrors placed at each guest’s seat.
While sipping on cocktails and nibbling on passed appetizers, L3 guests perused the “Pop Up Shops” in the back of the Ballroom, which included J. McLaughlin, Gigi’s Boutique, Littlefish Boateak and The Nicklaus Shop. Racks of trendy and seasonal apparel….tables of handbags, scarves, sweaters, jewelry….. Pull out your credit cards Ladies and “Shop til Ya Drop”!
