Blog socialization at Saks

There’s a super sweet scent wafting through Wayward House right now. It’s coming from this fragrant bath set.


I was delighted to learn yesterday that I won a giveaway I entered over at Chronicles of a Sweet Tooth, a fun site about fashion, food and pin-up style.

Blogger Katty Delux personally presented my pretty pink prize to me, a Lovey Dovey Personal Pampering Set from PoshUSA, at a shopping party for bloggers at Saks Fifth Avenue OFF FIFTH.

During the party, the Saks manager informed our group the median income for average shoppers is over $100,000. That meant most of the inventory was a little out of this clothing swap queen‘s price range.

However, as a perk for attending, all of us bloggers were armed with $25 gift cards and there was a drawing for bigger discounts. I didn’t win the bigger gift cards but did put my store credit toward a cute top and even cuter whale-shaped salt and pepper shakers.


Unfortunately, I could definitely not afford the sexy and mean looking $700 necklace that really caught my eye.


More than anything, last night’s event was a fun opportunity to mingle with people who share my interest in blogging and promoting things we care about.

I attended the Saks OFF FIFTH event with my friend Stephanie, blogger at Turtle Soup Daily, and we met up with Emily from Our Waldo Bungie.

You can find links to many of the other bloggers who attended at the KC Blogger Meetup site, where I was recently featured.

  1. My socializing with other bloggers involves coffee. Lots of coffee. Which is a heck of a lot less glamours than bath salts and saks, but this is Seattle. Lucky you! Love the whales. And thanks for the shout out.

    • I think I would fit easily into Seattle. All that coffee and oceanview living… As far as the fancy meetups go here, I think I was just randomly lucky to have been referred to a group of bloggers who also happen to be fashionable. I’m glad they let me participate! Haha.

    Sure LOVE all the turquoise everything that’s on the shelves and hangers!!!!

  3. I voted for Paddywack!

  4. I liked your Facebook page!

  5. I don’t know of any such gatherings for bloggers here in South Africa. I’ll have to look into starting something!

  6. I am so glad you enjoyed it! I can’t wait to start planning fun clothing swap event with you! I thought those whale salt and pepper shakers were so fun, and who doesn’t love Jonathan Adler?!?!

    Will you be at the Madewell Event next month?

    • To be honest, I did not know who Jonathan Adler was until I met those two little whales! I will be in touch this weekend about clothes swapping — no better way to promote fashion and frugality. And, yep, I have Madewell on my calendar.

  7. The necklace is stunning!
