Lighting aside, I had a great time last night. I don't think the organizers had necessarily predicted that people would be lined up at 5:30 and that the gift bags would all be gone before the start time of 6:00pm. I arrived early to meet up with Bestie but then Bestie got held up at work and wound up arriving at 5:50. All the gift bags had gone by then! I gave her mine... you know since she drove down from Fredericton to hang out with me and all!!
The stores were busy which can only mean good things for those of us who depend on those stores to keep us supplied with pretty things. Most of them had special discounts, demos, treats and giveaways. Wine was flowing, cheese and crackers were supplied and some had even teamed up with local eateries (Urban Deli and Grannans come to mind... go Uptown shoe stores!!) to provide yummy treats.
So yes, about what I wore. Well first of all, the most exciting thing was this:
Remember yesterday's post on Mean Girling? I didn't mean to come across as sounding like I'm sad and have no friends. I have great friends; I have friends will to lend me their Louis Vuitton handbags. Love it!
For those of you "from away", it was frickin cold in Saint John yesterday. I think many a girl re-evaluated her outfit plans in light of the near-freezing temperatures (that is not an exaggeration like when my Mother-in-Law says it was freezing and it was actually 14 degrees... oh yeah, Canadians work in Celsius. Love you Mother-in-Law!). Jackets, knitwear, layering were all on display last night.
