the limited party + a giveaway

Happy Friday, pretties!

Paws up if you're ready for the weekend! I'll drink to that...or at least tomorrow I will. At my best friend from college's wedding.

So any big plans for the weekend?

Yesterday was a great way to kick off this weekend and has left me feeling so high...on life...as a blogger. I was invited to The Limited's grand reopening party at Easton Town Center.

And it was grand. 

I was able to meet other Columbus bloggers, tour the store with The Limited's CEO Linda Heasley and learn all about their new strategy and new clothing collections, and of course SHOP!

Here's the party in pictures. Sorry in advance for the grainy phone pics. My camera died. Sad face.


There was a ribbon cutting. Linda - yes, we're on a first name basis - gave us a tour of the store. And I snapped a few tons of photos of the new store layout. It has a modern, boutique feel that is warm and inviting. It also plays up the new location's industrial style with exposed piping and duct work on the ceiling (sorry, no photo of that. Fail.). And the sales ladies were so sweet!


And their new dressing rooms are thebomb.com! Check out that top left pic. Inside the dressing room, you are able to control the lighting behind the mirror to see what your outfit would look like during the day, at work and at night. Genius! This was probably one of my favorite things about the new store! 

And Linda told us that in two weeks they are going to install a new mirror outside the dressing room where you can actually take a photo of yourself and send it to your friends - from the mirror! How cool is that?!

Um, and did you see that adorable fireplace?

Now, let me introduce you to my new bloggy/IRL friends.


Kholá @ Kholá's Kloset, Erika @ The Fashion Face, Christina, Columbus' Yelp guru, and Kelly @ Classically Eclectic (hey all you Indy bloggers - Kelly just moved from Cbus to Indy, so make her feel welcome!). These ladies are gorgeous and so much fun! Go check out their stylish blogs!

So I had a bit of fun in the dressing room yesterday during the event as well. Let's see if you can guess which items I purchased...


Don't mind the jeans with the dresses (I didn't feel like taking off my boots and pants. Slacker), if you can even tell from these terrible photos. Which I obviously made bad on purpose so you'd have to go try on these clothes yourself. Duh.

So what did I buy you wonder? Because I know you're wondering. Well, drum roll, please...

An amazing tan and black clutch, an oversized teal sweater, an olive green with black lace top and a black and green dress that I am wearing to the wedding tomorrow! And they gave me a free tote with my purchase!

I apparently was in a green mood yesterday, but I love everything that I got. I even wore my new green and lace top to work today.


So, this weekend The Limited is celebrating, which mean you get 40% your entire purchase this weekend in stores and online! And a portion of every purchase at the Easton store in Columbus is going to the Women's Fund of Central Ohio. So get a good deal and help a good cause.

Oh, but don't leave your computer to go shopping just yet...

Hello?

Le sigh.

Now, if you made it all the way to the end of this post, I will now reward you.

The Limited has given me a $50 gift card to giveaway to one of my fabulous readers.

Lovely post!! I just loved the dresses presented at party. It reminded me of a party that I attended at one of iconic New York venues. It was grand opening of famous reputed dress store. I was very happy to find gorgeous dresses there.
