Last night, I was lucky enough to attend the POP of Candy Party hosted by A.Sweet. Boutique and Damsel in Dior in Beverly Hills. Since I began interning for Jacey at Damsel in Dior, I have been given so many great opportunities and have met so many really important people in the fashion and entertainment bizz. Not to mention, I have learned how to properly blog and use photoshop! 🙂
Last night I was lucky enough to talk with Catt Sadler (of E! News) and E!’s Fashion and Lifestyle Director (who are both good friends of Jacey). I also got to meet representatives of many P.R. firms, including a couple girls from JLo’s production company. One of my favorite things about last night is I got to meet designer Heidi Merrick of her company of the same name. She was so down to earth and she was SO happy that Jacey was wearing one of her dresses (see adorable stripped dress above)! Heidi was really interested in what I do as an intern for Jacey so I actually got to talk to her for a while AND HUG HER! Other’s I socialized with included successful professional bloggers, various jewelry/clothing designers, people of E!, fashionistas and the owner of A.Sweet.
What a great night! I am so thankful for the connections I made! Can’t wait for more opportunities like this in the future! My advice is to take the risk and put yourself out there, something great is bound to come from it even if it’s unexpected! 🙂
